Who Are You?
What’s your travel experience?
I started my travels as an international comedian many years ago. For ten years, I toured all over the world; Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North America as a comedian. In some cases, I handled many if not all of the logistics and the travel arrangements for these international comedy concerts and theater tours. I also handled my own travel arrangements pre and post tour as well as day tours and other arrangements while in the many destinations.
In the twelve years since, I have traveled mainly as a travel writer and photographer. I’ve been to 70+ countries, traveling anywhere from 10 to 20 trips a year as a solo traveler or as a group traveler.
As far as Women's Adventure Travels is concerned, I meticulously put these trips together working with many of my favorite people and tour operators. For this initial wave of trips, I wanted to take you to a few of my all time favorite places in the world. This is just the beginning as there are many more to come. So, stay tuned...
Who are the tour operators?
I have partnered with individuals, tour operators, and properties that are simply the best in the business. They are all highly vetted and people and companies that I myself have traveled with. I have also aligned with soulful impassioned people in the many communities that we are visiting.
This is simply some of the best of the best. I am absolutely thrilled with the people that I am working with and those that we are visiting. I think you will be too!
Can I go it alone?
Should I go solo?
In all cases, I made several new and fast friends all along the way, many of which I am still in touch with today. Every one of my solo experiences was life-changing and taught me a ton about myself and other people and places.
Are there single supplements?
Do we get any downtime on these trips?
Yes! There is downtime built into all of the trips. Sometimes you just need to stare at a wall to process it all or to simply re-calibrate before facing others. Everyone operates on a different level with different wants and needs. We kept that in mind with all of the planning in an attempt to accommodate all.
There are also many options available throughout where you can choose between activities or kicking back at the property. Most of the properties we are staying in, including the ships if in Antarctica or Galapagos, have plenty of communal space and places to retreat, to be on your own alone, to decompress and soak in the ambiance, the view and the silence.
How adventurous do I need to be?
Should I train for this?
Show me the Money!
What’s the deadline? When do I pay?
All of the deadlines are different. Most trips allow you to put down a deposit in order to hold your spot. Then you can pay the remainder of the cost closer to your departure. Again, all of the trip details are on the individual adventure pages. Head over there. There's tons of information over there regarding all of the necessary details.

Will I Be Safe on the Adventure Activities?
Will I be Safe in the City?
Do I need vaccines?
I am personally not a fan of vaccines. I never get them unless it is required to get in or out of a country. Everyone is different. We will guide you as will the tour operators as to what is suggested and or required for each trip. The choice is then yours.
