consider the many lovely letters I receive from Journeywoman readers
around the world a true gift. I appreciate and enjoy each and every
one of them. Here in the JW office we believe that conquering the
many challenges of travel makes a woman stronger, wonderfully savvy
and much more capable of dealing with the world around her. We understand
that travel expands our ability to delve into and appreciate other
cultures. In the final analysis if what we post at this website
inspires one more woman to pack her bag and 'hit the road' we are
happy, indeed. We thank you for your continued support for what
we do. Please enjoy these encouraging excerpts from readers' emails
along with us.

I'm writing to tell you that Journeywoman.com was listed
in Sydney, Australia's Sun-Herald Ultimate Internet
Guide in the Travel section on September 24th. As they
say here in Oz, “Good on ya”!

Journey Women for the first time in 2001. I had never
traveled outside of the U. S. alone. Reading your e-magazine
inspired me to "take the plunge". That year
I traveled to London and Paris alone and had a great
time. Since then I have rented an apartment in Paris
for one to two months a year. This year I'm renting
an apartment in Paris for three months and plan to travel
to other places from there. Again, thanks for the inspiration!
I look forward to every (JW) issue.

Evelyn, I caught the tail-end of a TV show yesterday
and there was your smiley face. Obviously a profile
on you and Journeywoman had just been done, and I got
about the last 5 minutes. What a remarkable woman you
are Evelyn.... I take my hat off to your adventurous
and caring spirit that inspires women around the globe....
Cheers, lovely lady ... may you continue to soar.
thanks for the encouragement. A while ago I saw you
on CBC television. I wrote to you the next day and you
wrote back to me immediately!
Your generosity and encouragement led the way to my
recent trip to Paris! This was my first trip to Europe
and I am totally thrilled.

a bunch. I've enjoyed reading about the exploits of
other JourneyWomen for a couple of years and now we've
taken the plunge ourselves. My husband and I recently
returned from a bus tour of the UK (excluding Ireland)
and Journey Woman helped so much with the planning.
What to pack, how to get around and where to eat, especially
in London was a big help and certainly gave us a bit
of an edge and a level of comfort in trying the eateries

Evelyn, Thank you SO MUCH for our conversation today.
You are a generous and delightful woman. I found our
talk inspirational and probably just what I needed to
hear to "follow my own heart." I believe you've
been successful beyond your wildest dreams because you
stay true to your mission to encourage women to travel.
It was a good message for me to hear as I get ready
to launch my own mission.Thank you again for your time

Your website gave me the courage to try. Thank you so

Venetia, Ottawa, Canada
to say how fabulous and wonderful your site is, and
that I tell absolutely everyone I can about it!! I was
in Italy recently and both stayed at a place recommended
by a journey woman, as well as had a most memorable
meal at a wondrous restaurant, that had also been recommended.
Oh, to have the money to travel wherever and whenever
I would choose in this world!! Thanks ... for all your
hard work and for putting out such an excellent and
very helpful newsletter.

enjoy the Journeywoman newsletter and articles, and
even though I usually travel with my husband, the tips

wonderful vehicle for information. Thank you again.
