Cool Women

This is a brand-new section, written for and about women. Here I will provide specific content of interest to women which will include profiles or interviews of intriguing women. These women will of course include travellers and travel experts, but they may also include writers, entrepreneurs or just regular people like you and me who have done some interesting things.
