Hotel Evicting Racine Woman After 9-Year Stay

Nearly a decade after moving to a hotel after losing her home in foreclosure, a Wisconsin woman faces eviction for an unpaid bill of $29,000. Jana Ganjian says that her poor health put her out of a job and then her home, and that she's only stayed at the hotel all this time because she was unable to find a place to rent.

Letters to Our Younger Selves

How Can Travel Empower Young Girls?

In honor of International Day of the Girl, we've asked five female travel writers to write a letter to a younger version of herself, telling the girl tales of the experiences she can look forward to, and the lessons she will learn from travel.

Through stories of language lessons realized from crashing a car into a ditch in Spain, or the realization after visiting a Tanzanian village that it doesn't matter if your jeans are trendy, these women reveal the educational power of travel, and how essential it is for every girl to explore the world.

We'd also like to celebrate some of the adventurous women who pioneered new frontiers of exploration. A visit to these sites and others that celebrate women in travel may just fuel the dreams for the girls of a new generation.

Minnesota "Mad Man" Rides His Motorcycle to the Arctic Circle

Chris Campbell
By Chris Campbell

I've always been drawn to the last frontier: the unknown; the underexplored; the underappreciated.

I have, since I was a kid, devoured stories about the ALCAN 5000, the brutal road rally through Alaska, British Columbia and the Yukon Territory. I remember reading Car and Driver's story about pounding a brand new Corvette, loaded with extra fuel, wheels, tires and some driving lights to get through it. And I've seen any number of Discovery Channel shows that featured the Klondike. I was hooked.

I'm 30-years old. I'm married to a wife who is out of my league. We've got a crazy Springer Spaniel. I work in advertising. I create stuff that annoys you-ads that interrupt everything from your Sunday football game to your newsfeed on Facebook. And yet, I love what I do. And Fallon, my agency, loves its employees – so much so that they have a sabbatical called Dream Catchers. They give you extra vacation time and bonus money to go catch a dream.

2013 Fall Foliage Travel Guide

Office of TourismOhio
Don't miss out on America's grand costume change this fall. Leaf peeping opportunities abound as trees transform into a kaleidoscope of reds, oranges, yellows and purples all over the country. There are many ways to enjoy the season -- you can take an autumn road trip, go on a colorful hike or savor local foods and drinks against a spectacular backdrop.

See the full Fall Foliage Travel Guide on AOL Travel>>

And if you're curious about what exactly makes the leaves change, the Asheville Convention & Visitors Bureau has a cool 3D site about fall foliage.

Instagram Tour of Dublin

The best way to see Dublin is to take your time walking around the city. Stop for a Guinness in a local pub, pay homage to a temple of literature at Trinity College's library and try to see how many different colored doors you spot on the city's Georgian houses.

Check out the Instagram pics from Gadling's recent trip to Ireland. If these get you thinking about a trip of your own, our friends at AOL Travel have a great Dublin travel guide.


The Way Of Kindness

In his preface to a collection of stories called "The Kindness of Strangers," His Holiness the Dalai Lama wrote, "Kindness and compassion are among the principal values that make our lives meaningful... At any given moment there must be hundreds of millions of acts of kindness taking place around the world."

That theme infuses the five travelers' tales Aol Travel is highlighting this week, all portraying acts of unexpected kindness in a globe-embracing spectrum of settings, from Syria and Liberia to India, Greece and Russia. These acts are not dramatic or headline commanding, but small, everyday kindnesses.
