You can expect tips on living as an ex pat, getting a job in travel, working as a tour guide, using travel to cope with grief, safety tips for women, toilets abroad, and travelling with babies. Also, how to travel solo when you’re in a relationship, budget travel, dating abroad and visiting traditionally ‘dangerous’ countries.

Podcast for women

– I wanted a podcast that talked to the most vibrant and interesting female travellers of today.

– One that gave the reality of what it’s like to travel as a women, the good and the bad.

– And that features advice for wannabe travellers on a budget, with achievable travel ideas that get us out as much as possible.

– With travel advice from women who work full time, who have children, who have responsibilities at home and who’ve overcome personal difficulties to get out there and travel.

So, I decided to make it myself.

So She Travels podcast

Me doing my podcast

We won’t be over glorifying adventures, or travelling under someone else’s steam, but we are normal-ish women who’ve worked out how travel can feature more prominently in our lives.

Each week my guest and I will choose a destination, a few topics, and roll with it.

For this first series I’ll be talking to my favourite female travel bloggers, not about blogging, but their travels. And mainly, their travels before they became travel bloggers.

The next series, if there is one, who knows?!

And once you’ve listened to the show, make sure to give the So She Travels Podcast a review on iTunes. It’d really help me out if I can get in the ‘New and Noteworthy’ section, which I’ve learned is the Holy Grail in the podcast world.

Do you know of anyone who’d be great for the podcast?

Someone who writes or speaks about female travel a lot and has some inspiring stories to tell? Let me know at [email protected] I’d love to hear your recommendations!
