  • All Women Travel

    The traveler sees what she sees, the tourist sees what she has come to see.

    On our trips we balance the beauty and exotica of our destinations, with the differences in our worlds. One of the unique characteristics of travel with all women, is the exchange of opinion and experiences. Women love to share thoughts and visions and many of us stay pals after the trip is over. A conversation can range from brainy themes to what ever happened to hair rollers.…

  • Airline Rules Contested

    The papers today suggest that the announcement: “You must stay in your cabin and class of service”, is not actually an airline rule! However if you breach instructions and ,heaven forbid, push back the curtain or use the business class toilets, yikes, staff might strong arm you. Suggestions here:
    1. Get all names of staff involved. If they say they will contact the captain write down his/her name as well. Be discreet.
    2. Record witnesses’ statements on your phone.
    3. Send a certified letter to the airline asking for an apology- they will not compensate you so just go for the apology then tell the world.…

    1. Do not assume you do not need a winter coat. Even if  flying to the Caribbean, take it in case of unexpected detours.

    2. Sitting near the airplane window is chilly around the feet, wear knee socks and warmer than normal shoes. Try to insulate the plane wall with your coat or other.

    3.  If you get on the plane first, take one of the increasingly few blankets and use it! Or buy a cheap fleece one at a Target/Sears/TJMaxx type of store.…

  • Where is The Women's Travel Club?

    Where is The Women's Travel Club?

    Some history: The Club was founded by Phyllis Stoller in 1992. It grew into a national organization with accolades and awards. In 2006 Phyllis sold the Club to ABC Destinations, a group tour company. The new owners closed all their businesses in October 2012, including our wonderful Women’s Travel Club.

    We reopened as The Women’s Travel Group, same people, same themes with a slight twist. We are now offering longer, more in depth tours with  ‘smart itineraries’. We are the only women’s travel group to identify this new untapped area: college educated women who want to learn as well as have fun and who want a more comprehensive tour about the country and its people.…

     
  • The Women's Travel Group Fitness on the Road Tips

    The Women's Travel Group Fitness on the Road Tips

    Some of these tips are from a ‘Times’ article. Hotel room exercises include:
    lunges, squats, with the use of the hotel iron as an arm weight. Use the chair to stretch your back and waist by twisting and holding onto the opposite sides. The bed makes a good bar for triceps push ups and soft sit ups. Even if you hate exercise, do some stretching in bed after a long flight. The move onto to floor with a towel as a matt, and continue with your stretches.…

     
  • What We Learned at The New York Times Travel Show

    What We Learned at The New York Times Travel Show

    Women want smarter tours. They told us that free time, shopping with the guide, cooking and hobby type classes are not what they want to pay $$ for in a tour. We learned that many former Women’s Travel Club members miss our type of quality vacation and that the word is spreading.

    We realized that our Yunnan tour was not geographically understood. Yunnan is North of Nepal and West of Burma, fyi. It is minority, tribal and Himalayan China, a trip for the second time visit to China.…
