A few new things happening in the world of Girl, Unstoppable:
Website Design Change
One of the things I enjoy about maintaining a website on my own is the opportunity to change it when I feel inspired to do so. I’m no web designer, but I’ve come to appreciate the process of figuring out the mysterious code (CSS) I need to use to achieve a desired result. I’ve been wanting to change my design for awhile and started browsing my photos and fonts for inspiration. I came across this picture that I took from a bus while my group zoomed along a highway in the Pinar del Rio province on the Cuban countryside. I love the scenery and that it captures the blurry movement of travel. When I found the font, it clicked and a new blog design was born. If you’re viewing this on a reader or through email, head on over to the site to check it out. I know it’s probably bad blogging practice to have such a huge static header, but I like it and the rest of the changes so far. I hope you do too!
Solo Female Travel Workshop
In San Francisco on Thursday, June 7, I will be taking part in a travel workshop put on by the Northern California branch of Hostelling International. It’s geared towards women who are interested in traveling solo for the first time and looking for inspiration or those who’ve already traveled solo and want to find ways to enhance their journeys. I’ll be on a panel with other solo traveling female bloggers from the Bay Area discussing such topics as staying safe on the road, sticking to a travel budget, and navigating gender roles in a new culture. If you’re in the area, come by and check it out! For more info, take a look at this event listing and RSVP here.
Also, check out a couple articles I wrote for Hostelling International:
» On discovering awesome alternative art galleries in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district
» On the Stern Grove Festival’s 75th anniversary season and the colorful history of the park it’s held in

It’s as addictive as people say it is. I pin a lot of travel related stuff such as places to visit, creative travel items, food from around the world, and some of my own favorite travel photos. I’m also enjoying discovering and pinning innovative art and being inspired by people whose creativity is boundless. Follow my pins to join in!
