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.
