Welcome to Women's Adventure Travels

Women's Adventure Travels is a boutique travel company specializing in small, well-curated, customized female trips.  All WAT trips are designed with an empowering and fierce feminine thread throughout. 


We support women-owned businesses and celebrate women of influence and distinction in each market, be they a hotelier, chef, artisan, conservationist, or woman defying the local or global odds.  Guests see a destination through a feminine lens.


The unique elements of our trips reflect who I am as an adventurer and a savvy traveler. I have been on assignment, traveled to all seven continents and 70+ countries, and counting as a travel and lifestyle writer and photographer for over 100 international media outlets.

I have brought all those global experiences and my many relationships with top tour guides, tastemakers, hoteliers, chefs, and impactful leaders from around the world to this table for you. 


The WAT trips here on the site also reflect my creative endeavors, such as touring the world as an international comedian, a feminist playwright, a performer, and a healing artist with my non-profit program (Body Comedy), working with survivors of physical and sexual violence.

In addition, my experience producing international tours and LA fashion events for A-list celebs, stylists, and media and my more recent work in the past fifteen-plus years as a travel writer and global photographer are all woven into these trips.


These threads have been meticulously woven into the fabric of this business, Women's Adventure Travels, and these trips. 


I am over the moon to take bits of my past and present and move them all into this fierce feminine future around the globe.  

Surrounded by spirited, like-minded women and set in stunning landscapes, the WAT trips provide a mad mix of outdoor and adventure activity along with stays in top spots around the world that showcase an authentic ambiance, exceptional local artisans, art, and architecture, as well as local food, beverages and an element of wellness throughout.

As meticulously designed as the trips are, each has wiggle room to make it your own experience. I did a ton of solo travel while working as an international comedian.


I had my time on stage at night to do my shows and spent much of my free time doing some intense exploring. As a travel writer, half of my trips have been with groups, and the other half have been solo.  


So, I recognize the need to be alone and carve out solo time in a group. I also know the need to feed off a groovy group dynamic and get your giggle after going it alone.


All our trips are designed with this balance in mind as we bring both sensibilities to the table. Our itineraries are packed with beautifully scheduled moments. You can opt in or out of them. You can kick back, hike, swim, enjoy the spa, or do nothing alone. 


The pre-planned adventures here are merely the kick-off of what is to come with WAT. We also have live events and speaking engagements on the road.


There is plenty more to come with the WAT Tribe on and offline, so remember to subscribe to our mailing list so you can be the first to hear about all that we have in store!


Also, remember that if these group trips are not your style, we can also custom-curate trips specifically for you and your crew.


Hop onto our Customized Travel page for more information so we can get started on the planning process.


Custom trips can be arranged for families, businesses, corporate retreatscouples, and women's groups. The choice is yours!


The same attention to detail that went into the planning of these trips will be applied to you and your crew. I’ll see you on The Global Road!
