Once upon a time, there was a king and a queen. They had no children, thus they were very sad. One day, the queen gave birth to a lovely baby girl and celebrations were organized. Everyone was invited for the feast, kings of far far away lands, their queens and the fairies of the forest.
Everyone was happy in the celebration, dancing, feasting and giving their blessings to the newborn baby girl. The fairies, one by one, were wishing the baby well saying “May she grow older and be healthy all her life”. However, when it was the turn for one of the old fairies to give her blessings, she said “When the baby is sixteen, she’ll touch a spindle and travel around the spinning world all her life!”.
Little did the king know, that she would actually travel all her life, across the world, seeing every corner that was totally virgin to the mankind, until she passed away.
But today, her offspring continue to walk the earth to the most barren corners in order to know, teach and explore!
In this post, I’d like to introduce you to the feminine way of travelling. These people you’re going to get to know were touched by the fairies of Hermes’s long ago and, having the divine kindness in them, they’re sharing it all on their blogs!

To begin with Nomad & Villager are two cool ladies, at least that is what we think. Photographer and journalist. We lead a busy life, have a handful of kids, the obligatory cat, a dog that has to go for a pee. Again. We met in 2010 in the digital aisle of Twitter. A live meeting followed and two weeks later we were on a bus full of women to a village full of men. Our first foreign feature. Sold to national newspaper NRC-Next. I know, it caught us by surprise as well. After that more stories followed. About the alleged Scottish murderer Charlie and the Iraqi minister M (asculinity.) There were times we needed to be rescued from a Norwegian ravine, had to eat a bagel with mayo and lynx or barely survived a walk over fire. We rolled out a sleeping bag between HIV-infected Ugandan orphans, at other times we shivered beneath the sheets in a room full of stuffed knights. Still, every day. In our travel features we look for the stories of the men and the women in the street. Often unusual stories. We jumped out of a cessna, layed like corpses in a body bag in a sledge and hung deep green over the railing of a cruise boat. We portrayed Chinese workers in the Netherlands and had us hand cuffed by the police in Iceland, safest country in the world. Ok, that is a lie. But we did try.
