The Adventuress is a blog for women with adventurous spirits. It's a source of inspiration, planning, tips, and advice from experienced travelers and outdoor adventurers with the extra flair of being for women and by women only.
Having something to read while you travel is almost as important as having your suitcase! For every AGC trip, we recommend a few books to read that pertain to that trip, activity, or general area. But what about just regular great books for you to read when you're not traveling but have a hankering for adventure? For our 20th Anniversary our guides have compiled a list of 20 nonfiction adventure travel books that have brought us joy. Not all are by or about women, but they are all interesting, enjoyable, and give you the thrill of adventure even from the comfort of your couch. Check them out from your local library or purchase them for your e-reader or book collection.
We have written in previous blogs, newsletter articles and even in the notes section of our packing list about hydration packs. But I wanted to emphasize again why this piece of equipment can be superior to water bottles for outdoor adventure travel.
The glossary is the perfect companion for every female hiker, whether it's your first time on the trail or you have hundreds of miles under your boots. It was developed by our professional women hiking guides from their 100+ years of experience on the trail. Learn all you need to know about hiking terms and lingo today for FREE.
Buying a pair of boots for a backpacking trip or a hiking vacation should be done with careful consideration. Pick the wrong pair of boots and you could end up with feet ranging from uncomfortable to physically harmed with blisters or even tendon problems. It is a task that takes an investment of time and money. But hopefully, you will have this pair of boots for many years and it is worth putting a little investment in on the front end to get the best thing for you.
