Short Tour of Internet Sites That Help Traveling Women See the Sights
Journeywoman (http://www.journeywoman.com) is my favorite
[women's travel site] because it's so practical, fresh and real. Then,
too, I enjoy its Toronto-based editor, Evelyn Hannon, who started traveling
after getting divorced at 42 and laid the groundwork for the site with
a chain letter requesting travel tips from 100 women all over the world.
Series a spin-off from the popular website
Journeywoman Northern Lights Television of Toronto and Ocean Entertainment of Halifax are combining efforts to coproduce a CDN$1.3 million, 26 x 30-minute travel series based on the award-winning website Journeywoman.com. Broadcasters are now being sought.
Launched in 1996 by creator and publisher Evelyn Hannon, the site is

Women's Travel Online - HERMAIL makes a splash
Over the last three years, Hannon, a North American expert in the field
of women and travel has been steadily adding to the amount of women-centered
travel information available on the internet. She believes that the best
source of information comes from the average woman who lives in the destination
that the female traveller is planning to visit. Who knows better where
the safe areas are, which hotels would be suitable, what to wear, where
to find a female doctor if you're ill and where the best budget shopping
is? To that end, Hannon, who is also the consultant to the Canadian government
on women and travel, has set up two multi-award-winning websites where
women travellers can connect internationally and help each other with
personal travel advice.

Planet Amazon Review
At Journeywoman you'll find a treasure trove of information for the resourceful
female adventurer and explorer of new terrains. Find yourself in a stench-filled
bathroom? If you've read Journeywoman you'd know that dabbing a little
mentholated lip balm under your nose can save you from tumbling into the
bowl in a fit of nausea. Wish your suitcases were lighter at the end of
a long trip? A Journeywoman throws away her clothes as she goes - old
t-shirts stop clogging up her closet at home and she doesn't have to carry
as much when on the road. Filled with tips and light-hearted common sense,
Journeywoman is the place to go when on the go.

Magazine's still around but now only on the Net

the Internet and she says the response was "like an explosion." The magazine
which had from 6,000 to 10,000 readers annually, has now attracted about
115,000 visitors to the site in a year and a half.
The Internet and Travel Travel magazines --
Examples include Journeywoman aimed at women travellers.
Besides the better-known young women's sites, there are niche zines
worth noting, including: The travel-focused Journeywoman...
IF GLOBE-TROTTING was once mainly a male pastime, Journeywoman proves
times have changed. Though femsites can seem trite, this one, where women
describe canoeing through Honduran rain forests and ranging solo across
Turkey, has a sense of adventure. The site's bulletin board approach,
though uneven, is packed with reader tips and accounts of past journeys
that should encourage timid travelers. And searching for such gems is
half the fun.
Journeywoman has earned 8 points out of 10 in our travel guide listing.
