JourneyWoman Solo Travel Events
At JourneyWoman, every day is Giving Tuesday! We donate proceeds from our events to non-profits all year long.
We provide events to you at no charge, but we do ask that you help us support a non-profit organization recommended by our readers and speakers or make a contribution through JourneyWoman here.

JourneyWoman Community Calls
December 1, 2022, 7 pm EST. (Next call January 12, 2023 TBD)
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.
JourneyWoman Holiday Social (December 15, 6 pm ET)
Hosted by Mary and Rosemary, JourneyWoman Advisory Council
Live from the US and New Zealand respectively, Dr Mary Clark and Rosemary Neave will host our 2022 JourneyWoman Holiday Social. We’ll have prizes, breakout rooms, special guests and singing from Joy! More details coming soon. Check your timezone here.
“Limitless Accessibility” Group (November 9, 7 pm ET)
Hosted by Wendy (with Deborah, Joy, Jordannah, and Donna)
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.
