Meet the winners of the 2007 Travvies Best Group-Written Travel Blog award, The Lost Girls

Well, Vagablogging didn’t win Best Group-Written Travel Blog at the Travvies this year. But if we had to lose, at least it was to some fellow vagabonders. So, with a tip of the hat, here’s offering big congratulations to the winners, The Lost Girls.

Who are these Lost Girls? In their own words, they are:

Three twenty-something New Yorkers who ditched their media jobs to embark on a yearlong, round-the-world journey in search of adventure and inspiration.

Reading their blog, it looks like they’e found plenty of both. Since beginning their trek in Lima, Peru last June, Lost Girls Amanda, Holly and Jen have hiked the Inca Trail and sand-boarded in Peru, fended off stray chickens and read Harry Potter to school girls in Kenya, and studied Yoga in India. All that in just the first half of their trip.

As you’d expect from an award-winning blog, The Lost Girls is well-written and informative, with great trip-planning essays on everything from staying healthy to paying for it all (if you’ve read Rolf’s book, Vagabonding, you’ll recognize a lot of their strategies). Aspring vagabonders will find plenty of inspiration, too, in the Lost Girls’ profile series, Lost Girl of the Month.

Follow The Lost Girls as they enter the homestretch at www.lostgirlsworld.blogspot.com, and drop them a line if you can set them up with local friends in Southeast Asia and Australia and New Zealand.

Congratulations again, ladies, and safe travels.
