Adventure has been the new pretty for a while now, and women who travel are continually redefining the traditional notion of ‘sexy’ through their passion for exploring the world and adventurous souls. These women are smart, independent and strong. They navigate unknown cities with a great sense of direction, but also enjoy the spontaneity of getting lost. They’re not searching for money, status or looks, but for knowledge and world experiences.
People love to talk about motorcycle rides through exotic countries and bungee jumping and all kinds of other thrilling holidays. Yes, we know: you’re the modern equivalent of Lawrence of Arabia and you’re just so keen to let us know about it. Zzzzz.

Maybe their owners pay more attention to their guests than their promotional efforts. Either way, they’re places I think you should have on your radar.
