• Take Advantage of Others' Travel Fears

    Travel is as safe as ever. Newspapers are not as popular as ever. What connects the two subjects? To motivate you to buy a paper/read it on line/ or glance at a newsstand, head lines have to be horrifying and misleading.

    Middle Eastern refugees will not attack you in Europe. Berbers will not throw a bomb at you in Morocco.  No one is waiting in a niche at the Colosseum in Rome to rob you. But newspaper headlines will hint that all of this will happen, and will happen to YOU.…

  • What is a Travel Trend?

    The Women’s Travel Group offers some trending destinations: Mexico City, Puebla, Ethiopia, Palermo,and more. A trending place is one that we visit now, and the rest of the US visits in 5 years.

  • Women’s vs Men’s Travel

    Women’s vs Men’s Travel


    Group in Utah,

    Yes The Women’s Travel Group Bucket List is gender specific.I write this as a wife with two sons who were born overseas and traveled with me a bunch. Women are different.

    Women thrill at exotic and unusual, but we must have a comfortable hotels and decent bathrooms during the tour.

    We will experiment with food. But we must have  a hearty breakfast, more vegetables, at least one recognizable main dish and dessert!

    We like to learn. However walking tours cannot be too long; museum visits must end at absolute maximum 90 minutes.…

  • Why Mexico and Why Never a Cruise to Mexico?

    We are the only women’s group with Tours to Mexico.  We never cruise there….Why?

    Mexico means value; the US Dollar is 35% higher and $20 will get you an amazing gift.

    Fine dining is reasonable and memorable. The number of special restaurants in culinary capitals like Puebla is staggering.…

    Do you walk every day for normal errands?

    Can you put aside your nerves, lose sleep but learn to travel again in a group?…
