Did you know that women are estimated to make more than 80 percent of the decisions when it comes to household purchases? This includes travel.

Ladies, not only are we making a lot of the important, day to day household decisions, we are also doing most of the planning and booking for our family’s fun in the sun (or snow, mountains, resort..).

The great news is, we get to sneak in our own interests and no one can complain!

Insert at your will – foodie tours, winery visits, places of cultural & special interest, spa treatments and anything really that tickles your very own fancy.

However, I must say, as much as I love spending quality time with my family, often a family holiday is not really a holiday…… the cycle of family life does tend to continue from (well before) departure to return and beyond.

There is now a huge spike in a travel trend for girls who love to getaway – Ladies only, small group travel.

Does packing a bag and heading off sans fam, to travel with a group of super fun, interesting, inspirational and likeminded ladies, sound like bliss? Absolutely.

Girlie group travel has taken off more than ever in recent years. So much so, that there is an app which is dedicated to our way of travel, helping us connect with other female travel companions, who are visiting the same destination and have similar interests.

You know what else? Statistics show there is no age limit for ladies who love to leisure either.

I seriously LOVE this!

There is certainly a trend where the older we get, the more we want to travel.

Older Australians are now considered one of the fastest growing demographics in travel. As anyone who loves to travel knows, travel keeps us physically and mentally fit and if you throw in fantastic food and company, life = fabulous.

Of course, the best thing about a girls travel adventure is the friends you will meet and the memories made to cherish forever. Going on a truly inclusive, fully escorted tour, takes any uncertainty you may feel out of the equation too. Whether you are apprehensive about booking flights, accommodation, transport or what to do when you get there, booking with the right tour company puts all your worries aside.

I mean, if you know of anything more enjoyable than sharing a new adventure with wonderful women, worthy wine, fantabulous food and more laughs than you can poke a stick at, let me know & sign me up.

Or, if you are a wanderlusting woman who likes to choose her own adventure, meet brilliant new friends, eat up a storm, devour a delicious wine or 3 and learn a fabulous set of culinary skills, you best register for our latest news and upcoming tours, or take the plunge and treat yourself by booking your much anticipated, fantastic short break below. We’d love to meet you.
