HELLO FROM Journeywoman.com
WE MADE IT! -- Thanks to thousands of women around the world September 2013 marks Journeywoman's 20th Anniversary. We began as a grassroots movement with our newsletter going out to 100 readers. Today we happily enjoy over one million website visits per year and our free monthly newsletter readership is 68,000 strong. As always we appreciate each one of your fabulous tips, bits of advice and stories. Together we are making travel from a woman's point of view the best and safest it can be! Ladies, you rock.
Back in 1982 When I began travelling solo I had no mentors and seldom met other women travellers on the road. Imagine if I could have foreseen what impact females would have on the travel scene going forward. Today I happily meet women everywhere my journeys take me. Ask anybody in travel what the three fastest growing segments of the industry are and invariably you'll hear, the Womens Market, First-Timers and Fifty-Plus. And guess what? That's what our Journeywoman Network excels at. Hurray for all of us. Together we are strong. Very strong!

NOW ASK YOURSELF -- Did I make the best possible use of this travel tip newsletter? If you clicked on 5 or more links - Congrats, you are a true Journeywoman! Under 3 links? We really have no idea of what to do with you. You're probably a 'pretend' Journeywoman and we'll just have to allow you to come along for the ride :)
