Kristin of Will Travel for Vegan Food left her cozy life behind to pursue her dream of independance and healthy living on the road.
Did you know what the average adventure traveler looks like? Hint: it's no longer a twenty-something backpacker with barbed wire tattoos. In 2013 the average adventure traveler is a 47 year old woman. That's right. According to a study reported by Lipstick Economy, women--especially single women--are the fastest growing and most important segment in the travel market today. Solo travel is definitely trendy, as is exploring the world on a "girlfriend getaway." If you're looking for ideas on how to travel as a woman, alone or in a group, Dwellable features travel writing and photography from an amazing community of female bloggers, all of whom have a unique set of tips and tricks. So without further ado, here are 10 incredible travel blogs written by women. Check out each one and prepare to let thy socks be knocked off.
Adventures of the Red-Headed Traveler: A global travel blog from the perspective of a young woman with crimson locks, the sensibilities of a foodie, and an unwavering expertise of her home town, Philadelphia. Twitter | Dwellable
Career Girl Travels: A blog for twenty-something professional women who are looking to make the most of every trip they can squeeze in between their nine-to-five (or in the author's case, ten-to-seven). Twitter | Dwellable
Go Girlfriend: Founded by Julia Rosien, Go Girlfriend is more than just a blog. It's an online community of women who share their travel experiences and lend each other travel advice. Now that's the kind of networking we like to see! Twitter | Dwellable
Hole in the Donut: After achieving success in the high-intensity corporate world, author Barbara Weibel writes about her passion for travel, writing, and photography to find deeper meaning in life by emphasizing cultural experiences and social intimacy with local people. Twitter | Dwellable
Jamie V Photography: Washington-based photographer Jamie Valenta (pictured above) has traveled around the world with her camera. You can take a peep at all of the lovely sights she has seen (and the extra lovely way she sees them through her camera) on her website, where she also shows her portrait, family, baby and wedding photography.

Traveling Wine Chick: This chick goes all over the world and buys her own drinks. She's a wine expert like you'll never know. Plus, she speaks French. I think I'll see if she wants to split a bottle, on me... Twitter | Dwellable
Two 4 Travel: Laura and Claire are twenty-something year old best friends who travel the world together, visiting destinations from Australia to Isreal to the US, and share tips on how you and your bestie can get nomadic, too. Twitter | Dwellable
Wanderlust and Lipstick: When Beth Whitman founded Wanderlust and Lipstick she created a space for women to learn about traveling independently. She continues to facilitate travel education as well as trips for groups of women the world over. We're big fans of the Wanderluster women over here at Dwellable, and admire the talent that is brought together in the W&L community--especially when we get to look at pretty pictures of pretty Portland gardens taken by photographer and Wanderluster, Louise Lakier.

Writer's Wanderings: Since 2005, Karen Robbins has been writing about her travel experiences on her blog, Writer's Wanderings, which gives her a serious leg up in the travel blogging game. But that's just the half of it! Robbins is also a public speaker and well-published fiction author (you betchya travel is a theme in her work!). Check out her latest book Death Among the Deckchairs on Amazon, and browse the rest of Robbins books and published stories here. Twitter | Dwellable
