The Female Explorer

The Female Explorer
THE FEMALE EXPLORER is the first printed outdoor magazine to focus specifically on the needs and perspectives of women on the move. The first issue was published in December 2020 following a successful crowdfunding campaign. The second issue is also already in the works and will appear in May 2021. The founding team, consisting of four freelancers from Leipzig, sees itself as a mouthpiece for the growing community of traveling women and their very specific topics.

Sometimes these are encouraging solo adventures, a look at the equipment of Explorer:innen, inspiring world trips, long-distance travel or reports from very close micro-adventures. The decisive factor is the perspective, because it is often about more than performance. Overcoming fears, self-determined travel and finding the courage to realize one's own dreams. The magazine is intended to inspire and share experiences - and the associated online community to encourage exchange. In the SOLO TRAVEL, REWILD, OUTDOORS, ROLLING HOME, WILDLINGS and LOCAL sections, you'll find plenty of outdoor sports, columns by adventurers from the community, DIYs, recipes and itineraries worth bookmarking. Current topics such as sustainability or the influence of social media on travel are also addressed in articles, guides and photo spreads, and are intended to provoke thought and discussion.

Sarah, who leads the editorial team at THE FEMALE EXPLORER will also be part of the "Panel: Wie definiert man Freiheit und Abenteuer?" as a representative of the female founders behind the magazine. Personally, Sarah loves the small adventures of everyday life as much as the big ones in the mountains and forests and is convinced that only the balance between near and far is truly sustainable for our future.
