    Why exotic travel can be easier than European jaunts?

    Many trips to Europe involve a lot of city walking, stairs and marble museum floors. You are tempted to even when tired to wander the neighborhood of our centrally located hotels for some shopping, snacks or photo ops. Oh, those aching feet. In addition, some of us use the fitness area after a day of sightseeing and airplane rides, without thinking to stretch beforehand. Then finally, to save money, we will carry wine back to our room for in-room parties with the group.…

     
  • What Phyllis Learned on Vacation

    Just returned from my personal vacation, and here is what I learned:

    The world is still traveling. And tourist sites are full of happy, unworried travelers. Airports are as busy, flights fairly full. Families smiling and excited about their vacations.

There is the newsworthy, they are being careful and methodical. There is the season, summer is peak which is why our group trips are mainly off season.…

    The elephant who came to our bus in Jaipur India to say hi. Next India trip: Dec 2016

    Can a US Passport Holder be turned away by a country that normally allows us entry?  We all assume that our US/ Canadian passports grant us entry to practically all nations.  (When The Women’s Travel Group trips require a visa ahead of time for instance India,Iran, Brazil) , we advise you carefully).

    Facebook comments about solo Holiday Travel. We are especially touched by hospice nurse, Ms. Baha, reminding us life is short. So why are we women travelers allow bulling by others?

    Single women travelers secretly feel we are losers. I know the feeling myself. You look at brochures and see happy couples or groups of friends? You call friends, try to get them to join you, get rejected and find yourself rereading your guidebook.

    Single travelers worry they will alone.  Most of the women who travel with us or other women’s  groups are coming alone but find instant travel companions.…

     
  • Why vacation over Thanksgiving?

    The Women’s Travel Group offers both Christmas and Thanksgiving vacations. This year, 2016 we are going to the magnificent Amalfi Coast and Rome for Thanksgiving and Morocco for Christmas.

    Thanksgiving evokes memories of warm families and of nasty families, of lost ones and of distant ones. Being geographically away from your life eases the good and bad memories.

    For many of us, Thanksgiving is the beginning of a string of memories which culminate on Dec 31. Going away cuts that string and opens your mind and heart to new adventures which have no blemishes.…
