    Ways to Make A Meal British at Home until The Women’s Travel Group and you are back on the road on a Britain tour. The time will come sooner than you think!

    Food tastes better in Europe despite the fact that ingredients can be less plentiful than in the US. Europeans substitute expertly and we are learning to do the same, rather than risk going to the supermarket.   The Women’s Travel Group is sharing a way to bring one hearty London dish to your family before you take our Britain tour.…

     
  • Stuff from Women’s Travel Group Trips: video.

    Video creation is new to most of us. In this post, Phyllis Stoller shares some treasures she brought back from The Women’s Travel Group trips. We are used to our phone cameras; but not to our video production. While at home and isolated, why not learn the art of video making. I am going to walk around my living room as a trial and talk about a few of the souvenirs brought home.

    Each one has a memory I wish I had filmed.…

    Travel Dreams: How To Get Through the Doldrums

    Britain travel dreams

    The Women’s Travel Group is full of wanderlust-ed women who are currently housebound. Where do we dream about going these days? Is it cities like London or Paris? Are we drifting to wider open spaces in our reveries? 

    How to Get Around Britain

    On our trips we like to combine city and country. Here is a combo to satisfy both the urbanite and the country gals. Britain has a terrific train system; off peak is cheaper than peak commuting times. Super off peak hours are generally 10AM-3:30PM then after 7:15PM.…

    Grandchildren are afraid to travel says The Women’s Travel Group. Headlines of airplane recycled air and cruise ship contamination scare them. Travelers are quarantined counting days, stuck overseas or feeling home lonely. How can we help our grandchildren to look forward to the adventures we have loved. And stay connected with them?

    I have talked to my 12 year old darling granddaughter, about our traveling together one day. I send her photos and anecdotes when overseas and bring her and his sisters little gifts from unusual places.…

  • Women and Poor Travel Health Habits

    We are not experts in travel health. However The Women’s Travel Group is a first-hand witness in how poorly women prepare for their travel health.

    Packing and Shopping Excessively. Sure it feels good to have new travel clothes. Shopping tinge is a prelude to travel excitement. We say: avoid these splurges! New shoes are dangerous as you have not tested them on tired or swollen feet. New clothes take up the attention you should give to important documents and money.…

    Boomer Women Want More from Travel


    We are the first generation women who studied abroad, joined the Peace  Corps, traveled internationally for work and, like myself, lived abroad. These experiences made us different travelers. Our mothers would be both scared for us and proud.

    India is the irresistible bargain basement: a $1 pen with rhinestones? $4 embroidered umbrella? 50c hand made paper? Cotton clothes for as little as $3? Herbal soaps and creams? Gems and pearls?   

    Morocco is a close second with fringed tribal rugs, silver, ceramics, leather and metal lamps. Bargaining is critical but if you love it buy it. If you purchase a carpet, get the vendor to pack it so you can put it on the plane. if leather goods, smell them for proper tanning. …

    Chocolate Around the World

    Chocolate you must try, buy and keep a supply, tips from The Women’s Travel Group.

    Chocolate ginger pieces or cookies: a common combo in Great Britain including Scotland. Ginger was imported from India to ancient Rome, then to Britain and ultimately became a colonial favorite. Chocolate ginger cookies can be supermarket level or gourmet from an upmarket store like Fortnum and Mason. 

    Chocolate with chili: The first time I ate a chocolate/chili bar was in Mexico City Airport. Chocolate with chili is made in Mexico by artisanal candy makers. …
