More About Adventure Talk on Mountain Sobek Travel Blog
Here’s a little background of what spurred the launch of Mountain Sobek’s monthly feature on adventurous travelers:
The online world is full of enthusiastic travelers bursting with stories from their round-the-world adventures. They inspire millions through their words and photography, and have an insatiable appetite to discover the farthest reaches of each continent. We wanted to showcase some of these creative vagabonds and get their take on what makes adventure travel is so special to them.
And here’s a snippet of our Adventure Talk with Mountain Sobek:
What do you get when you combine two fearless females with a savvy business sense, a thirst for adventure, and a creative ease with pen and ink (or rather keyboard)?–The Voyage Vixens–a duo made up of freelance writers and adventure junkies, Lanee Neil and Lindsay Taub.
With a gold mine of information on their blog and a penchant for adventure, it’s no wonder why the Voyage Vixens are one of our favorite travel bloggers. We sat down with Lanee and Lindsay to pick their brains about their past, how travel has changed them, and what the Voyage Vixens blog is all about.
1. What made you transition from freelance writers to becoming full-fledged travel bloggers?
We noticed there were plenty of hardcore adventure bloggers as well as luxury travel bloggers, but not a whole lot of female voices that wanted both! That’s when we decided to launch Voyage Vixens – an online magazine and YouTube web series championing adventure AND the finer things in life, as well as humanitarian works around the globe that we’re passionate about.
2. How did you both meet each other to found the Voyage Vixens?
Lanee: We met on a press trip. The friendship was sealed that first night, teaching Lindsay how to smoke her first hookah pipe in Calgary, Canada of all places!
Lindsay: I’d like to add that it was actually a mutual fascination with a GQ cowboy who sang on horseback up to the summit at Lake Louise that really sealed the fate. HA!
