Please join me for a fun evening on women and travel through the Transition Network Group of Professional Women on May 16 in New York City.

Phyllis Stoller will talk about what the new woman traveler wants, with tips on how to make your own trips special.

5 Tips to Make Any Trip Better

1-Connect with local people by bringing a photo of your family to share.

2-Bring something that has universal meaning: say a Breast Cancer Survivor Hat

3-Find a source for an honest picture of your destionation: this might be a woman’s federation who push for reform.

4-Try one activity that is a push, as simple as a walking tour of a gritty area.

5-Talk to women on the plane for ‘inside’ ideas of what to do in your destination.

A recent article in Group Travel Magazine is a taste of the evening.
