Why exactly did you create this site?
Many moons ago, we went looking for a website that had resources for us - women and (eh hem) low budget travelers - because, let's face it, we come with a unique set of needs. Instead, we found a lot of site for fabulous trips for women and exotic trips for women and cruises for women and tours for women.
It's not that we're bashing that kind of traveling. It's just that for the rest of us - whether we are low on funds or enjoy the doing it on our own- that doesn't help so much. So...we decided do create the site that we had been looking for. A one stop shop for women of travel that met our needs.
You said X on your site and when I went there it wasn't true!
Sadly, that wasn't a question. But we will answer it anyway. We try to make it clear throughout the site that this is just a helpful GUIDE. It's a collaboration of facts and experiences from GWT women. We can't possibly check each thing and ensure that everything is accurate. We're here to give you the tools to prepare for your trip, but in the end you are ultimately responsible for your travel plans, your safety and your experience (yes, that's a legally binding statement we're making here. Girls Who Travel is not responsible for your trip or the result of you following the information on this site) (sorry we had to get serious there for a moment). More than anything, we want to give women the power to know how to travel well - and the first step is doing your own research, making your own connections and being prepared. We're just one part of the process.
Can I write for Girls Who Travel?
Why yes you can! We're always looking for contributors to the site and the blog. Just drop us a line!
