Top 10 Trailblazing Women Travelers (PHOTOS)

In honor of International Women's Day (March 8), the team at Cheapflights is offering a very grateful thanks to women globetrotters and adventurers who've paved the way for us all.

The global day of recognition, a national holiday in many countries like China and Russia, celebrates the economic, political and social achievements of women.

Appropriately enough, we're taking this opportunity to celebrate 10 of the top trailblazing women travelers.
