As a Canadian diplomat now resident in Sydney, Australia, my job
has required over the years a large amount of travel to and/or extended
stays in countries around the world. I am aware of many travel resources
but I really do believe that at the level of practical advice Journeywoman
is one of the very best -- for women AND men. Ask my wife, who continually
has to wrestle her copy of Journeywoman out of my hands... I feel
that anyone looking for solid counsel and travel tips in far-flung
places should turn to Journeywoman without fail.

Canadian Consulate General, Sydney, Australia
EDITOR'S NOTE: Delighted to read your e-mail. Wrestling
with your wife is a very good thing. Glad Journeywoman had something
to do with it.
I've waited years for this (Journeywoman). Can't
thank you enough, and will be passing it on to all my friends. Keep
up the great work!

It is a pleasure to read all the experiences from
other (Journeywoman) friends who love traveling. And.... I love
your TOP TEN TIPS ... very very much...

What a great resource for women! I love your site,
and having just produced a site of my own (on travel to India/Nepal
with kids), I thought I would let you know I've linked to your site
-- definitely one of my favorites!
Sharon McRae, Lancaster, Canada
Journeywoman is a fabulous site. Congratulations.
Ingrid, Zagora, Greece
You have a wonderful website where I have roamed
aimlessly but enthusiastically like Ulysess on the ocean in search
EDITOR'S NOTE: What lovely words, Vinanti. Thank
I have been a travel agent for 15 years and I
have never seen anything like your Journeywoman website. I have
clicked back and forth most of the day reading the different sites
and laughing at some of the stories. I must admit I thought the
advice on deodorant under the breasts and money in the push-up bra
were brilliant!...I assure you I will share this new "find" with
all of the women travelers here and with my co-horts in the agency.

Now that I am a member of the Journeywomen network
- I guess I've just made 160,000 new friends!

As a middle-aged single traveller, budget style,
I was very excited to find your site. I've back-packed through Malaysia,
Australia and New Zealand, and taught English at Charles University
in Prague. At last I found a whole group of common souls. It's good
to know you're there.
