About Our GirlsFlightOut Blog

Through the written word and video, GirlsFlightOut aims to give women travellers insights into new and interesting ways to experience our planet. Although always shot in must-see locations, rather that focus mainly on destination, each blog explores a unique style or approach to a holiday and features the town or city or region as the ideal backdrop. For example, we shot “Want to really get to know the locals of a city? Attend a major league game” in Pittsburgh because it is both a great city as well as the ultimate sports town. Still, much of the info we offer can be applied to any sports-minded city such as Chicago or Boston or anywhere around the world where soccer (football!) is played. We figure this sets our blog apart -- we're travel experts yes, but we don't like to tell people where to go.
