When you bring together two full-time travel writers, story telling and adventure swapping tales at their best quickly ensue. On Ramona Flume’s, who contributes travel stories for a mix of publications like New York Daily News and the Dallas Morning News, first international assignment, she traveled alone through the Colombian Amazon by motorcycle, by foot on grueling jungle hikes and on 24-hour boat rides. She remembers: “We would stop alongside river banks to refuel, and villagers would run aboard selling plastic bags full of fruit juice along with their squirming baby alligators that they would let loose on the floor to ‘show them off’ as pets!'” Jordan Breal, an associate editor for Texas Monthly who pens a travel column for the magazine called The Wanderer, shares one of her best travel memories: “Being serenaded as my friends and I rowed across the Rio Grande to get to Boquillas, Mexico.” Or, there was the time Ramona got to live out all her Lost in Translation fantasies on three different assignments in Tokyo and Western Japan — “I could travel through Japan for years and never get completely accustomed to its signature brand of freakiness,” she says. We could listen to these two smart, stylish gals chat about their dreamy jobs for hours, so in between gab sessions at Big Red Sun, we asked each of them to show us how they would wear J. Crew’s boyfriend fatigue jacket for this month’s installment of Double Take.
