GoGirlfriend’s founder, Julia Rosien

Julia RosienJulia RosienOur founder, Julia Rosien, has been getting on and off planes for most of her career and lives her passion for travel. She began her travel writing apprenticeship as a child. Her fondest memories involve stale cheesies, flat orange pop and squabbling with her brothers in the backseat of a station wagon. Senior editor of a national pregnancy magazine and correspondent for newspapers like the Boston Globe, Chicago Sun-Times and The Christian Science Monitor, Julia has visited almost every Canadian province and American state. She's as comfortable diving into Watsu therapy as she is revving her ATV for mucky trek through the Northern Ontario or soaring above the Rio Grande in a hot air balloon.

While Julia leaves extreme adventuring to her intrepid travel cohorts, she'll do just about anything to experience a story for her readers. Especially when she's rewarded with a spa treatment at the end of the trek.

Angelo Surmelis and JuliaAngelo Surmelis and JuliaWhen Julia's not jetting her way to her next great adventure, she's a social media strategist for SocialNorth.com. She’s the 2012 President of WithIt and organizer and co-founder and master of ceremonies for Canada’s first 140 Conference. She’s also a presenter at both Vegas and High Point markets, Impact99, Tweetstock.ca, Women in Biz Conference and 140conf NYC to name just a few. Not surprisingly, she’s been named one of the most influential women in social media and was a nominee for the Roger’s 2011 Women of the Year celebration in Waterloo Region.

  • On How to Choose a Cruise Ship Cabin on Your Next Cruise, Tinu said "Thank you for this post! I was dragging my feet about going on a cruise. Now that I know there's such a thing as a balcony cabin, I can't wait to book a trip!"
  • On Travel Advice for Visiting a New Country, NJB said "Hi Stacy, great article! Just wanted to say, you can get an international SIM card that works in multiple countries and on cruise ships. They're not quite as cheap as a SIM card from the country you're visiting, but they're cheaper than a roaming plan on your domestic SIM and will save you a lot of time if you're visiting several countries. I got mine from Telestial, which also offers a range of cheap travel phones and other useful products (adapters, etc)."
  • On 8 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Take a Mediterranean Cruise, Katie said "love, love, LOVE this list! a mediteranean cruise has been on my bucket list for a long time but i'm moving it to the TOP now!!!!!!"
  • On Best Places in the World to Vacation Naked, Larry F. said "Of course you can go to some great clothing optional B&B's in the network of homes in Clothing Optional Home Network! With locations coast to coast plus Mexico and the Caribbean, there must be one near you! All are affiliated with AANR, so you can be assured of a quality clothing optional experience!"
  • On Best Places in the World to Vacation Naked, Lori Jennings said "Florida's Pasco County is the nudist capitol of America and Caliente Resort & Spa is the best place to get naked in Florida. It's for adults only and is clothing optional, so no pressure. But, you can be as you are naturally in a luxury environment. No passport needed and derivable from most states. "
