to think about...
-- Tell us about a B&B, moderate hotel, hostels,
college dorm, organizations that allow travelers to stay
in each other's homes on a short term basis. If the place
is owned or run by a woman, if there is a female concierge
let us know about that, too.
-- These dining spots are either in your hometown
or in the cities that you have visited. Look for cleanliness.
interesting decor and food, moderate prices, special big
splurge stops and female-friendly service.
advice -- Advise other women on what is
culturally correct in your part of the world or in a foreign
country that you know well. We're looking for everyday clothing,
clothing worn at religious sites, office attire and what
to wear to weddings or funerals.
4. Books you've
read -- Tell us about women & travel
guides or those that help us to understand the history and
culture of a country.
sites -- Tell us about sites you have visited
that were spiritually inspiring, ones you feel other travelling
women will enjoy as well.

-- What unique things do you do to keep yourself
and your possessions safe?
7. Advice on
travelling with children -- Whether you've
been to capital cities or small towns with kiddies, send
us tips for keeping children occupied, interesting places
to visit, great toy stores, child-friendly hotels, etc.
8. Off the
beaten track things for a woman to see and do --
In this case we are looking for the lesser tourist attractions.
i.e. all guidebooks will tell you about the Eiffel Tower
in Paris. You might have found a wonderful creperie run
by women around the corner from the Tower. We want to hear
about those kinds of places and things to do.
advice -- We're looking for neighbourhood
shops or exciting department stores around the world. What
did you buy there that you couldn't find at home? What did
you bring back as gifts?
expat organizations away from home -- Do
you belong to a Female Lawyers Association in Hong Kong
or a Teachers Club in Prague, etc.? Do you welcome foreign
visitors to meetings? Is there a yoga club in Beijing? Do
you know of an English language library in your European
city or town? All these things are very helpful bits of
advice for women travellers.
11. Do you
have tricks for dealing with loneliness or harassment?
-- Others will certainly benefit from your advice.
12. Tips for
staying healthy -- Do you exercise along
the way? What health aids or over the counter medicines
do you carry with you for which countries?
