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 Cuba Travel ~ 10 Things You Need to Know Before You Go, admin said "Thanks Gordon for the update ... and given most routes to the resorts on the coast are an hour+ and it's Cuban warm, that money for a beverage is a great tip!"
  • On Cuba Travel ~ 10 Things You Need to Know Before You Go, Gordon Mitchell said "Over the last few years The $25 departure tax has been included in your airfare. Make sure you convert your cash at the airport so you can buy a cold beer on the bus on your way to the resort. They will take canadian money but not loonies and toonies. "
  • On Lesbian Adventure Travel, Debbie Clarke said "If you're considering New Zealand, then New Zealand Awaits is lesbian owned and operated (yes I'm the founder, owner, and guide). We run active and not so active tours for lesbians, as well as some LGBTQ mixed trips. We create itineraries for travellers wanting to self drive, and we have private guides. Come see us! "

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
