Venturesome Overland

Quick jaunt to San Francisco means a stop at City Lights, one of the all time greats. Treated myself to the new Murakami, plus this fascinating non-fiction by a Czech writer (check out the gorgeous book jacket). Oh yeah, and books, not bombs. 📚 @citylightsbooks #citylightsbookstore #bookshop #independentbookstore #books #bookstore #sanfrancisco #read #readafuckingbook #readinglife #newbooks #travel #booksnotbombs

Some of you know that I’m a librarian. I’ve been thinking a lot, since moving back to the US, about what skills I can bring to bear on making my community and country better places to live. Since I’m trained in curating, analyzing and sharing information, I decided that what I could do is help people learn better skills and dispositions for dealing with fake/false news and media manipulation. I’m partnering with @humanitiesmontana for their Informed Citizens series and my first gig is at my own @missoulapubliclibrary talking about how fake news spreads. I’m super honored and more than a little freaked out because, 1) it’s my library and I want to do a good job for them, and 2) it’s a complicated topic with exactly zero easy answers. Anyway, it’s my way of giving back (and fighting back) using the tools and education I have. If you’re interested in me using this space over 2020 to share tips and tricks with you let me know. I’m sure I can fit those in between photos of cats and cars! 😉#fakenews #fightfakenews #librarian #librarianlife #humanitiesmontana #informedcitizens #democracy #criticalthinking #mediamanipulation #missoula #missoulapubliclibrary #think #library #loveyourlibrary
Man. I did not think @ourblackcoffee @blackcoffee.mt could make me any happier, but these gift boxes are the. best. Needed some Missoula gifts for friends out of state and this is perfect. #blackcoffeeroastingco #coffee #madeinmissoula #buylocal #missoula #theperfectgift #missoulamade #locallyowned #ilovecoffee

Over the last few months, Ashley Giordano from Desk to Glory fame has been profiling badass women travelers on the Women Overlanding the World Instagram account.

Kenyan Wamuyu Kariuki from Throttle Adventures – currently exploring South America by BMW. She and her husband Dos traveled to Antarctica, too!

Recently, for International Women’s Day she compiled those stories into a great feature article for Expedition Portal – featuring the likes of motorcycle queen Wamuyu Kariuki from Throttle Adventures, Stephanie from GrizzlyNBear Overland (fist bumps for Defenders!), Candida Louis of the remarkable India on a Motorcycle, and, of course, Julie, from your very own Venturesome Overland.

Julie and Toto, somewhere in Ethiopia.

Check out the text, photos, and video over at ExPo, and let these badass women inspire you to keep those wheels turning, and the adventures coming.
