A note from this week's wanderer: Lucy Laucht

A Brit in New York by way of Australia, I'm a writer and photographer with a curiosity fueled by uncovering meaningful experiences and offbeat locales. Last year my husband and I left our New York City careers and moved into a 1985 Volkswagen Westfalia camper, driving across America in search of the interesting people & off-beat places that inspire us to get out and see the world. My travel site is a tale of learning to cherish the intangible and lead a richer life through the discovery of hidden gems, beautiful places and new faces.

Somewhere in the last year or so, Teva's have made a statement with a solid comeback with loyal support from some of the world's most known adventurers. Maybe it's because they're the OG sport sandal, or that they've grown from flip flops rigged with two Velcro watchbands by a Grand Canyon river guide back in 1984 into an icon of comfort and utilitarian style. Whichever way, Teva's are ultimate freedom for your feet, with a touch of old school swag and a dose of modern adventure and style. These have the type of cool that they work on the streets too, and with that sentiment, I'm especially eyeing their Universal Leather Slides. They're cool, they're quality, and they're totally affordable (and on sale now).

Roller derby has made its way to Beirut and slammed down with an intentional thud. These women aren’t just pioneers: they’re the architects of a new future. Salwa Mansour and Karima Algelany are poised on the jammer line, roller-skate wheels braced against the asphalt, eyes narrowed against the sun. Ahead of them is a tight pack of blockers from both teams: half will be helping them race around the elliptical track, the others will try to stop them with spine-jolting body blocks and, ideally, send them smashing into the ground. Protective pads and helmets are adjusted, mouth guards are in place, the trailing ends of headscarves are tucked into mesh sports vests. There’s a whistle blast and the two opposing jammers – the game’s only point-scorers – skate full tilt into the mass of bodies.
