Here is a list of 5 women only travel clubs that organize women specific tours to exotic places and provide newer experiences and a platform for networking.
Travel has a brand new meaning now! My parents used to take me and my sister for trips to different locations in India where it was mostly sightseeing. After I got married our couple travel was mostly experiencing places and food. Now after I became a mom I realize that travel has become much more difficult. I have a never ending list of do’s and dont’s regarding the kind of destination, hotels, food, mode of travel, time of travel and what not! Yes, these are important for travel but we end up with very few choices with an increasing list of prerequisites. You will not be able to get the whole experience of a travel in such cases which are unavoidable with kids I guess.
It’s not about just kids, but the travel experience changes with parents to friends to husband to kids. So when is it that you actually explore a place on your own? When is it that you get to experience a place out of your personal interest at your own pace? That’s what makes a solo travel most sought after mode of travel these days. There are different travel companies offering customized women only travel, which surely enriches your whole travel experience.
Stay with me while I give you a list of such travel groups you can choose from.
