HerStory

From the jagged peaks of the Teton Mountain Range to the frenetic streets of Istanbul, Robyn Vincent wears many hats, and has the shoes to match. She’s a multimedia journalist with a penchant for broadcasting, editor of Planet Jackson Hole and Jackson Hole Snowboarder Magazine, and a hopeless nomad based in the mountain town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Following some recent worldly misadventures, she decided it was time she marry two of her passions: writing and traveling. You see, during her travels Robyn often stumbles into awkward, sometimes hilarious, ironic situations–from an unintentional visit to a Thai brothel to a train ride in Amsterdam that took her to the end of the tracks, literally. While on the road, there has also been no shortage of life-changing experiences. Reaching out to local communities abroad, whether by volunteering or reporting, Robyn helped rebuild a home in New Orleans destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. She documented her experience in a feature story for Planet Jackson Hole, which happens to be the only alternative press in Wyoming.

Her traveling style might be similar to yours. She loves to slingshot herself into strange situations, devour exotic street foods and copious amounts of wine and local moonshines, wax philosophical with strangers, and discover compelling people and places to photograph. Trail running, rock climbing, snowboarding, and trekking are also commonly found items on Robyn’s travel itinerary.

An idealist (sometimes to a fault), Robyn believes the more you travel abroad the more you realize an invaluable axiom: despite our long list of differences, it’s not difficult to connect with folks who share the same hopes and dreams, even on the other side of the world.

Godspeed, my friend.
