Hi fellow New Yorkers!
It’s time to plan a getaway and learn of other destinations in the world to visit as you attend these upcoming travel events available to us. Let’s cut the routine spots we always return to and try something new. There’s three events occurring in March 2014 , and maybe you will even book a trip on the spot…
1. Women’s Travel Fest – Hosted by Go!Girl Guides
The Women’s Travel Fest is being held for the first time and is created by my editor at Go!Girl Guides – Kelly Lewis. I write for her website and will be volunteering at the event.
It is being held on Saturday, March 8th from 10am-6:30pm. It’s main focus is to inspire women to travel and of course help us bond and learn more from each other.
There will be speakers and presentations focusing on womens’ travel, solo travel, safety, volunteer travel, budget travel and lots more.
