Facebook-Recognized Entity Girls Who Travel Rebrands, Changes Name To Her Adventures

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Girls Who Travel, a popular women's travel group with over 81,000 members from over 100 countries, has undergone a rebranding. The popular group will now operate under the name Her Adventures. This change comes after Facebook recently selected the platform for the 2021 Facebook Community Accelerator Program.

Her Adventures developed a prominent reputation long before being recognized by Facebook. The platform is the first travel community for women dedicated to leveraging online resources to make travel accessible to all women regardless of access, ability, or privilege. During the pandemic, Her Adventures was the only digital travel group to launch a massive campaign that provided their global members with a safe way to travel via online experiences. Fueled by Facebook's funding and support, Her Adventures will expand its online services to provide additional travel-based resources and programming throughout the following year.

Being selected by Facebook for this particular program is a testament to this travel group's innovative and far-reaching effect. Arden Austin, the founder of Her Adventures, was selected as one of 131 Facebook Community Accelerator program recipients globally. This cohort was chosen from over 13,000 applicants based on demonstrated impact in the community and ability to scale to other markets.

"This rebrand marks a milestone in our organization to make travel and our community more inclusive. We believe that the future of travel begins here, with our mission of ensuring that everyone can explore the world and, in doing so, can become more empowered, empathetic, and open-minded," shared Arden Austin.

Her Adventures will provide the platform, tools, ideas, and resources to allow women from across the globe to experience travel as more than just an elite activity for those who can afford "passports and plane tickets." This continues the work of Girls Who Travel, which has mounted campaigns including gifts, postcards, language exchange programs, virtual tours to places like Chernobyl and Tokyo, online and in-person meetups, webinars with travel industry experts, a marketplace of travel products made by community members, and other fun avenues to explore, learn, grow and support others.

About Her Adventures

"Southwest Airlines continues to be an irreplaceable partner with our Taking Flight - Amarillo Initiative. We appreciate their continuing dedication in maintaining and returning flights to and from Amarillo back to pre-pandemic levels, and now beyond, with the new Austin service."

Greek American Author Releases New Memoir ‘Sophia’s Return’

SEATTLE, Wash. -- The new book by author Sophia Kouidou-Giles, "Sophia's Return: Uncovering My Mother's Past" (She Writes Press - September 7, 2021 - ISBN: 978-1647421717 | $16.95. E-ISBN: 978-1647421724 | $9.95) follows a daughter's journey to understand why her mother left their family home when the author was a seven-year-old child, without a good-bye or explanation.

Decades later Sophia travels back to Greece, determined to find her mother's grave and finally learn about the reasons for her parents' divorce. As she digs, she begins to realize how clashing cultures between her Greek-born mother and her father's early years in Turkey wreaked havoc on the marriage. Determined to unlock the true story, she interviews family members, all of whom are sympathetic but reluctant to disclose information. Finally, she hires an attorney to search for documents-and uncovers a story she never knew existed.

"In life's journey," said Kouidou-Giles, "it seems the unknowns of the past rule us more than the uncertain future, and sometimes the deceased influence us more than the living. It appears that time is not linear, the present is a false, precarious moment, where we endlessly strive to remain able to stand for ourselves."

Written with illuminating insights and a mature understanding of what forced her mother's decision to abandon their home, Sophia's compassionate, authentic recounting of her journey will encourage those who search for the truth to persist in seeking answers to life's unanswered questions.

About the Author

In her 34 year child welfare career, she served as a practitioner, educator, researcher and administrator publishing articles in Greek and English professional journals with a focus on child welfare services to abused/neglected children, and statewide responsibilities in child care licensing and adolescent services for youth in foster care in the State of Washington.

In recent years, her focus has shifted to writing non-fiction and poetry. Her Greek Language memoir, "Επιστροφή Στη Θεσσαλονίκη," published by Tyrfi Press in Greek, in 2019, is available in all Greek bookstores and in the US direct from the Author. Her poetry chapbook "Transitions and Passages" received recognition in a juried competition by the Contemporary Quilt Art when she worked in partnership with Deborah Gregory, an internationally known Quilt Artist.

Zootility Introduces Hover Shield For Travel, Designed To Fit Disposable Masks

PORTLAND, Maine -- Zootility, a design-driven US manufacturing company, announces a breakthrough innovation - the first travel eye shield, known as Hover Shield, that attaches to any disposable mask. Unlike any of its conventional bulky design predecessors, the nearly invisible Hover Shield provides an attractive solution for traveling, seasonal allergies, yard work, large public gatherings, institutional settings, and working in dusty environments.

Zootility's patent-pending loop hooking design allows the Hover Shield to be easily attached to any disposable mask with ear loops without applying any pressure to the face. The low-cost disposable shield was developed in part with support from the Maine Technology Institute (MTI).

The lightweight and transparent construction of the Hover Shield makes it barely noticeable. The Hover Shield seamlessly extends above any mask to cover the rest of the face. Other key features include universal attachment, adjustable angle, no straps and no pressure points design. Hover Shield also solves one of the biggest complaints wearers have with traditional face shields - fogging from their own warm exhalations. Hover Shield is available with an anti-fogging coating option.

"No one wants to wear a bulky eye shield when traveling. Hover Shield was created by travelers for travelers with comfort in mind and is perfect for air travel. Hover Shield deflects droplets from traveling directly into the eyes without obscuring the vision or adding the bulk that comes with conventional face shields. It basically just hovers there!" says Nate Barr, Founder of Zootility.

The product launch comes as more people worldwide are beginning to travel for the first time in a year amidst COVID numbers slowly increasing due to the highly virulent Delta variant. The CDC has long recommended eye protection in addition to a face mask whenever masking is required. Until now, there has not been a cost-effective solution for eye protection. The Hover Shield makes that recommendation easier to follow.

Visit Zootility's Kickstarter page to order your Hover Shield, meet the creators, and learn more about the product that is changing the way we travel: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/zootility-health/hover-shield.

Zootility designs, launches, and manufactures exciting functional everyday products that solve interesting problems using clever solutions, quality materials, and futuristic technology. For more information on Zootility, please visit http://www.zootility.com/.

Say Goodbye to Receipt Headaches! AmTrav and Emburse Automate Travel Expenses

AGOURA HILLS, Calif. -- AmTrav, the one connected platform for business travel, and Emburse, a global leader in expense management and accounts payable automation, today announced the next evolution in their partnership with the launch of their automatic receipts integration. This cutting-edge integration automatically populates AmTrav travel expenses in clients' Emburse expense wallets to save travelers, expense preparers and expense administrators time, frustration and mistakes.

Traditional travel and expense integrations all have shortcomings that cause errors and create additional work for users. Booking data feeds often don't match up with actual payment data, credit card data feeds are delayed several days and don't include receipts or important expense details, email forwarding is unreliable, and manually entering expenses and uploading receipts is a time-consuming pain for users.

The automatic receipts integration solves these pains by enabling AmTrav to send 100% accurate expense data and receipt images from the AmTrav point of sale to users' Emburse expense wallets. Users can then add these complete travel expense items to an expense report with one click. This feed includes any travel changes made through AmTrav, automatically populating expense records for additional fare amounts, change penalties or refunds. Emburse users can also designate expense owners to receive expenses for specific travelers.

This new integration builds on AmTrav and Emburse's history of simplifying clients' travel and expense processes since 2013. Busy travelers and expense preparers are freed from tedious tasks like uploading receipts and entering receipt data for travel purchases and travel changes. Expense owners no longer need to remind travelers to forward receipt emails for expense report preparation. And expense administrators get reliable expense data straight from the AmTrav point of sale, saving those administrators time and frustration as travel expenses reliably reconcile with company credit card statements with fewer user or system errors.

"The word 'integration' gets thrown around a lot these days, but the one between AmTrav and Emburse is robust and real-time," said AmTrav CEO Jeff Klee. "Customers who pick AmTrav and Emburse can get a travel management platform that they'll love, paired with a world-class expense management system, tightly integrated so their travel expense data flows accurately from one to the other to save all users time and headache."

To learn more about how AmTrav and Emburse can make travel and expense management easier for your team, reach out to AmTrav or Emburse today.

The First Rafting Trip of the 2021 New River Gorge National Park Rafting Season at ACE Adventure Resort

OAK HILL, W.Va. -- ACE Adventure Resort kicked off the New River Gorge National Park rafting season with their first rafting trip on Friday, March 26, 2021. Last year brought a welcomed increase in outdoor recreational activities such as rafting, climbing, mountain biking, as more Americans turned to outdoor vacations and reduced or eliminated foreign travel in response to the global pandemic.

Also, late in 2020, legislation was passed that designated the New River Gorge as our country's newest national park. Due to these factors, ACE Adventure Resort and other area outfitters expect to see an even greater increase in guest visitation than last year.

Bryant Baker, a River Operations Manager and Raft Guide at ACE Adventure Resort is eager to kick off the season: "Springtime is always exciting! The weather starts changing, the days get a little longer, and we all get psyched to take folks out on some amazing whitewater in the Gorge. As far as the national park status goes, I think it will pique more interest for people who have yet to visit the New River Gorge, but there are plenty who have already experienced how special this place is."

He adds, "The 2021 rafting season is about to kick off and we're excited to facilitate world class whitewater adventures in the country's newest national park, sharing this place with both first timers and those excited to come back for more."

ACE is looking forward to a booming rafting season and is excited about introducing whitewater rafting to a wider audience. In preparation for the summer an aerial park has been constructed as well as completing renovations to the Lost Paddle Bar and Grill, expanding the ACE Adventure Waterpark, building additional hiking trails, and campsites. ACE Adventure Resort looks forward to welcoming new guests and the first rafting trip of the season.

For additional information on rafting trips visit https://aceraft.com/ or call 800-787-3982.
