The Joy of All-Women Trips

The Joy of All-Women Trips

Women Who Travel - February 5, 2019 - 31:11

Let's get something straight, right off the bat: we're biased when it comes to organized group trips exclusively for self-identifying women. We love them so much, that as of today we have not one, not two, but ten Women Who Travel trips heading to Colombia this year, thanks to a partnership with El Camino Travel. But we didn't always feel so gung-ho about traveling the world with a group of strangers or about giving up control over the itinerary. In fact, just like with almost everything in travel, it was the mental hurdle—the thought that we might not like group trips—that kept us from doing it. But, we all got over it. (Strip naked in front of a group of gals at a Japanese onsen and you'll get over those reservations really fast.) To commiserate and compare stories, we brought community editor and trip lead Megan Spurrell and El Camino's founder Katalina Mayorga on to talk about the pros, cons, and what it took to change our minds.
