Christopher Columbus, Charles Darwin, Marco Polo, Chris Hadfield… Typically, when we think of historic explorers and trailblazers, it’s easy to think of men. When I came across this infographic momondo created, I thought about female pioneers – the women who, against all odds, were adventurers with phenomenal stories to tell. I relate to each of these women (and girl!) who were out in the world experiencing it, blazing the trail for the rest of us. They literally took the road less travelled and it’s truly made all the difference – not just for them, but for you, me, and anyone who travels today.
