Next up on Solo Travel Wisdom: An immersive session with packing expert Anne McAlpin
At JourneyWoman, our ethos is to Seek, Learn and Teach. It’s a constant cycle that has helped JourneyWoman inspire women for generations to travel safely and well.
That’s why we created Solo Travel Wisdom, a monthly livestream talk show hosted by JourneyWoman Editor Amanda Burgess. Each month, we interview a selection of women who are avid travellers and have a wealth of wisdom to share with our audience of savvy solo travellers. Like the experienced traveller you once sat next to on a plane, train or boat and learned a ton from, our guests dish on their life lessons, wrong turns, detours and unforgettable experiences.

Bring all of your packing questions and prepare to be inspired by her globetrotting carryon-only travels in this live and interactive session.

Meet JourneyWoman Anne McAlpin
Travel Expert and author Anne McAlpin has been a featured guest on Oprah, The View & CNN sharing up-to-the-minute travel tips. She has traveled in over 78 countries, flown more than 2 million miles, cruised through the Panama Canal 98 times, and traveled 21 days around the world – solo – with just a carry-on bag (weighing under 18 pounds)!
Anne has also become an icon of smart, stylish travel. She brings her professional traveler’s experience to all of her events. From deciding what to pack to how to pack it perfectly, she’s the “go-to” expert on everything travel.
She attributes her grandmother, who believed travel was the best education and arranged her first trip at 16, with instilling a love of travel in her. “She did the same for my three sisters when they turned 16, and I am carrying on the tradition with my nieces and nephews.”
