Host

What can I say…I love the world! Not just some of it, ALL OF IT. I travel because I’m curious, thrive in new cultures, and need a change of scenery more than the average person. The creation of WTA is the product of the faith I had to create a space for women just like me. When we travel together, I feel whole and in bliss being with my tribe. I’m inspired every day by the extraordinary women that travel with WTA. I’m a better person because of Women Travel Abroad. And I thank each and every one of my travelers for having faith like me and believing that world travel together is possible. Cheers to 23 trips and 154 WTA travelers and to 100 more trips and 1,000 more WTA travelers in the future!
