  • 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.…

     
  • 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.…

     
  • Best Global Shopping

    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. …

    Senior Women:the Outcasts of Travel Media

    Face it Ladies, we are outcasts.

    If you read travel press, you learn about soft cashmere travel blankets, fiddly electronic travel apps, and experiences to ‘find yourself’. There are daring itineraries for daredevil women, who wear Italian travel pants, and shoes our foot doctors would never recommend.

    Why does the media ignore the real senior woman traveler

    Here are frank thoughts from The Women’s Travel Group:

    1. Many writers are young or think they are young.

    How To Travel and Not be a Wreck

    How to Travel, Sicily trip
    One of our Sicily Groups overlooking Mt. Etna

    Rest up two weeks before your trip. Do not leave a wreck.

    Pack only essentials. Leave home any item you love. Not worrying about losing or leaving possessions is a relief.

    Get to the airport extra early; find a quiet seat even if not at your gate. Regroup with a book or game.

    On the plane, do some stretching. What better an airline than Qantas to recommend: https://www.qantas.com/us/en/travel-info/travel-advice/your-health-inflight.html

    At the hotel, again do simple stretches and walk around the hotel area to wake yourself up.…

    8 Things to Always Lock Up in Your Hotel Room

    The Women’s Travel Group advises:

    Summer trips still have space

    The Women’s Travel Group advises:

    Medicine you cannot live without. In non English speaking countries, thieves cannot tell if your medicine is simply Tylenol or a narcotic.  

    Anything with a brand name even if a fake. Sunglasses should be treated like jewelry.

    Electronics, that means you need to recharge when in the room. Use a larger charger for faster re-juicing.

    All plastic credit cards, even if no or low value, like a store points card only used in your area.…
