  • LOW and NO Tech Travel Hints- for Women Travelers

    Each time I see an article about travel technology, my brain melts. Most of us, of a certain age, are just not interested in technology. Yes, we want a smart phone that works, wifi information and maybe a GPS. Beyond that we just want a written document with all the details of our trip.

    If you do not know how to operate your phone, stop  right here and go to the Apple Store or wherever you bought it and learn basics.

  • Five Reasons Women Don’t Book a Trip

    Five Reasons Women Don’t Book a Trip

     

    We usually write about why you should book a tour with The Women’s Travel Group. Today after speaking with some women, we are sharing with you some reasons why women do NOT go ahead and book a trip. 

    We can all remember the first time we went to a function alone. It was scary, nerve wracking and sometimes we backed out and did not even go.

    Why do women dream about travel then NOT GO. The most common reason is fear of the actual travel.…

     
  • Videos of real people on The Women’s Travel Group on many trips

    We are pleased to show you photos of a few of our trips. Many more trips are listed on http://www.thewomenstravelgroup.com. The reason we are sharing these photos is to show women out there that we are regular,all ages, all backgrounds. We are also all casual.

    Some things you cannot tell from the photos are:

    We come from all over the US and Canada.

    Some women here had never traveled overseas before.

    Most knew no one on the trip!

    Everyone was nervous at first and everyone relaxed and came back for another trip.

     
  • Women’s vs Men’s Travel

    Women’s vs Men’s Travel

     

    Group in Utah,

    Yes The Women’s Travel Group Bucket List is gender specific.I write this as a wife with two sons who were born overseas and traveled with me a bunch. Women are different.

    Women thrill at exotic and unusual, but we must have a comfortable hotels and decent bathrooms during the tour.

    We will experiment with food. But we must have  a hearty breakfast, more vegetables, at least one recognizable main dish and dessert!

    We like to learn. However walking tours cannot be too long; museum visits must end at absolute maximum 90 minutes.…

     
  • How to Travel with "Bad Knees"

    How to Travel with "Bad Knees"

    Every week, we at The Women’s Travel Group hear this: ‘I have some knee problems ‘….knees being a metaphor for limitations.  We all have limitations, as our mechanics deteriorate, we just jog too much or we are nervous travelers going solo for the first time.

    A few ideas to measure if you can travel with our group:

    Do you walk every day for normal errands?

    Can you put aside your nerves, lose sleep but learn to travel again in a group?…

  • Five Musts on a First Singles' Tour

    Do at least a little reading so you actually know where you are going. Even if just a wikipedia whisk through. Save some of the information in your Kindle or other device.  Sources: wikipedia, Frommers/Fodors/Lonely Planet on line. Did you know you can borrow e guidebooks from the library then save chapters in your phone etc.

    Have $50-100 in single US Dollar bills to use before you have local currency. Going to the bank at the destination airport is dangerous. You will be exhausted, you might leave something behind, you need to keep one eye on luggage and one on your money.…
