How to De-Stress During Holiday Travel with Brie Shelly, MS, LMHC, RYT
It’s that simple. The number of members who associate Wanderful membership with friendship is astounding.
Within a women’s travel community like this, you know you’re already of like mind, surrounded by women who support other women in this global sisterhood.
It’s amazing what connections can happen when you start off on such similar ground!
I have met a new friend through here and rekindled an old friendship also. In the future I’m sure that I will make many new friends.
Going to Boston Chapter events introduced me to local travelers and bloggers who have become friends.
I’ve been a member for a number of years and love the camaraderie of my fellow travel sisters. So much valuable information and friendships made!

7. We Support Women Travel Creators Changing the Industry
Wanderful is the creator of WITS, the Women in Travel Summit. WITS is the premier event for women travel influencers and creators, and the brands that want to work with them.
Hosted on two continents with hundreds of attendees each year, WITS brings together women travel creators to challenge the travel industry status quo. By encouraging more diverse voices and experiences to be shared, WITS attendees and sponsors are creating a more equitable and inclusive industry for all.
After seeing the power of this women’s travel community at each WITS conference, Wanderful also created the Creator Collective. This group helps women travel creators to hone their skills and connect with the right brands all year long. Find out all about the Collective right here.
On May 27, 2020, the Travel Industry Virtual Meetings Day will offer brands and qualified media a chance to network and create opportunities to collaborate.
After multiple travel conferences had to cancel during early 2020, Wanderful and the WITS planning team realized the significance of this loss. Virtual Meetings Day will help travel industry professionals and creators all around the world to connect during this challenging time.
8. Discounts for Members at Global Wanderful Events
Wanderful members get special discounts at other events around the world. There are two WITS conferences, one in North America and one in Europe, where members get special VIP access plus extra goodies.
And, in 2021, Wanderful members can join us at the world’s first outdoor travel festival for women: Wanderfest! Wanderfest will be held in New Orleans in March 2021 to gather women from around the world to celebrate our global sisterhood.
Members can look out for special discounts and offers!
Whether it’s opening up our homes to other traveling members of Wanderful or offering to meet up for a coffee or a walk around the city together, Wanderful is all about helping women to get out into the world.
And — guess what?! — the world includes your own backyard!
You don’t need to travel thousands of miles from home to get the benefits of travel. In fact, here are a variety of ways you can expand your own horizon and travel without even leaving home.
Women encouraging other women to explore, to get uncomfortable, to challenge preconceptions, and to learn something new about the world is what Wanderful is all about.
This is a women’s travel community built on true connection and inspiration to explore the world in every way possible. And we would love for you to join us!
