Solo travelers, let’s connect in person at a local meetup

by Carolyn Ray, JourneyWoman

As travel restrictions start to ease, women from around the world have been writing to me suggesting local meetups. We’ll be kicking things off in Toronto, Ontario with an outdoor walk in High Park on April 9, with other cities to follow including Edmonton, Dana Point (California), San Miguel de Allende and more to come. These events are hosted by local JourneyWomen who are ready to welcome you into our community with open arms.  If you join, please wear something with a touch of red so we can spot you from a distance!

This is the first step of what I hope will be many opportunities for us to meet and share tips, advice, travel books, safety information and help each other travel safely and well. Over time, I anticipate regular meetings among women or in-person book club discussions. We respectfully ask that everyone joining be fully vaccinated – after all, we’re still in a pandemic – and many of us are caring for vulnerable people. Masks are optional depending on your comfort level. You do you!

If you would like to host a meetup please contact me at [email protected].

    Hi. Sounds like you have a fun group. I live in New Jersey just across the river from NYC. Any chapters in my area?


We always strive to use real photos from our own adventures, provided by the guest writer or from our personal travels. However, in some cases, due to photo quality, we must use stock photography. If you have any questions about the photography please let us know.
