About Away She Goes
Away She Goes covers culturally-rich, off-the-beaten-path adventures through the (literal and figurative) lens of a feminist writer, photographer, and marketer who works in international development. Started in 2008, the blog was named for twin tendencies to run at the mouth and hop on a plane at the drop of a hat. Common topics include women’s empowerment, ethics in travel, global inequality, current events, human rights, activism, and what it’s really like to travel in some of the world’s misunderstood and overlooked corners.
Away She Goes is informed by a background in social enterprise and international politics, aided by language and journalism skills, and driven by a passion for social change. Delia believes in digging in deep on a location, before, during, and after her trips, and meaningful connections to local communities and businesses. She doesn’t shy away from the tough questions, and would rather be swigging from a bottle of moonshine with new friends than going to a club where admission costs the yearly salary of an average local. A place is more than its monuments and museums. The population is more than just the service industry.
You can count on Away She Goes for quality storytelling, getting the facts right, a willingness to question authority, and perspectives that get past stereotypes and assumptions.
