Armed with a quick wit, unique voice and award-winning journalistic chops, Paula Froelich became the editor-in-chief of Yahoo Travel in April of 2013 after a stint as a senior writer at Newsweek and four years as a freelance journalist writing about politics, travel and pop culture. Her unique vision for the page has turned it into a must-read destination for anyone interested in being inspired, entertained, and motivated to engage the world and suck the marrow out of life.  In six short months Yahoo Travel went from primarily a booking site to the largest travel content site in the world.

 Her new video series, A Broad Abroad, is one of the first female-hosted travel adventure series of its kind. In it Paula invites viewers to explore the unknown and discover the unexpected in both familiar and exotic locales around the world. Her motto: Be Adventurous. Be Bold. Be Brave. Reclaim Yourself.

Paula is a New York Times best-selling author of the novel, Mercury In Retrograde. From 1999-2009, she was the Deputy Editor of the New York Post’s highly influential gossip column, “Page Six.” During her tenure she was seen by millions of viewers as a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight and The Insider and appeared as a guest on The View, Real Time with Bill Maher, The Today Show and Good Morning America.

 Prior to The New York Post, Paula was a financial reporter covering interest rate swaps and over the counter derivatives for Dow Jones Newswires and Institutional Investor. She has written for Playboy, Marie Claire, Newsweek, Digiday and The Daily Beast.

In January 2012 she won a Gold Medal award from the North American Travel Journalists Association for her Playboy article, “Down And Out In Baghdad.” As a digital consultant, she helped the Sundance Channel win a CableFax award in the Integrated Marketing Campaign Category.

A gifted orator, Paula has been a featured speaker at TBEX, ATMEX, ATWS, PhoCusWright and the New York Times Travel Summit

Paula is originally from Ohio and Kentucky and loves to travel to places where the USD still means something.

  2. Hi Paula,

    My name is Shabrina Koeswologito and I solely run a travel blog for heyshabrina.com. Currently I’m having a project about Happiness. This project started when I’m searching for the meaning of Happiness. Through books and discussing with friends, colleagues, and family I have many answers how people perceive Happiness in their own way.

    Right now I would like to hear more from you about How Do You Define Happiness? It does not have to be a long sentence, it just small description on how you see Happiness from your perspective. Your responses would be featured in my blog. If you have something to share please send it to my email (k.shabrina@gmail.com). Below the list of profile you might want to share with the readers.

    Name = either full name or nickname even anonymous would be fine too.
    Country = please state your country as I plan to hear from all over the world too.
    Website = your own personal website for publish (not necessary)
    For confidential purpose, I will not publish your email.

    I really looking forward to read and learn from your Happiness perspective in your life.

  3. Hello,

    I’m Jane and am an avid reader and blogger, a passion which I think we share. I’ve been writing contents on the web professionally since 2010. I share my experience through articles on Travel, Culture, History, Lifestyle and many more.

    Your blog “abroadabroad.com”is probably one of the most interesting ones I’ve seen recently and with due reason. I was wondering if I could do a guest post for your blog.

    I would like to write on “Finest Places That You Must Explore in Australia “or any other suggested topic for your blog.

    It would be an honor to see my article published on your site.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Jane Roberts.

  4. great to come across your stuff on yahoo travel ) great things!

    let there always be a road

    ps – you might want to put Mexico at least in the “Central America” category. North America would be an even better choice.

  5. found you on yahoo and was so interested in how you got to where you are (travel and journaling). Very inspiring, just goes to show that REAL PEOPLE actually have dream jobs! keep it up!


  6. Love your video on yahoo on your visit to San Juan, Puerto Rico, but would love to see the whole show on San Juan Puerto Rico. I can only find the 3mins 3second video thru Google search engine. Could you direct me to where I can see the whole segment on your visit to San Juan, Puerto Rico.

    Gracias, Ivy
