JourneyWoman Community Calls
Up next: Thursday, June 29, 2023, 7 pm EST
Hosted by our Women’s Travel Advisory Council and Editorial Team
Our Community Calls were launched in April 2020 when the entire world was in some stage of lockdown. We’ve been inspired by the openness, generosity, wisdom, and support displayed by participants on calls that made us alternately laugh, cry, smile, sigh, and feel the bonds of global sisterhood. These calls are hosted by solo travellers from our Women’s Travel Advisory Council and editorial team. Please note we only have capacity for 100 women. Calls are recorded and shared on our Youtube channel.
With her new book, “Wanderlust”, Karen Gershowitz embraces curiosity to step into the unknown for more meaningful travel experiences.

Up next: Thursday, June 8, 7 pm ET
We, as members of JourneyWoman, have the possibility to change the way we perceive travel for those of us with mobility issues. It may be that one is a bit older, and not as “spry” as they were 40 years ago, or through medical misfortunes…. But we still love to travel!!! Join us to share ideas and solutions.
