The "girly-girl's" guide to packing for adventure travel

I'll admit it. I'm what you would call a "girly-girl". I like to dress up, I'm most comfortable in heels, and, ironically, I don't feel quite myself when I'm not wearing at least a little makeup (and yes, I am fully aware of how ridiculous that is). Despite my disdain for getting wet, sweaty, stinky or dirty, I love taking part in adventure activities when I travel. I like to do things like hike, ride horses and zipline. I just like to look good (though I'll usually settle for "not gross") while I do them.

from Holiday Inn by Kevin Kling

"hypothermia is real. Remember the rule: if you are cold and upset, you're fine. But if you start feeling happy, and everything is right with the world, seek help immediately. That is hypothermia talking, and you don't have much time."
