The hardest part of traveling as a woman is feeling supported in your independence.

Maybe it’s too dangerous? Maybe I should bring a man with me? Maybe I should just stay home?

If you’re a brazen woman who refuses to stay home, congratulations: You’re a hussy! The insult ‘hussy’ comes from an outdated view of housewives. Travel Hussies reclaim the word for women travelers.

Travel Hussies prove that you can make travel a part of your life.

Travel comes from the French ‘travail,’ or ‘to work.’ As women, we may have to work harder for travel, but when we support each other, we go further.

Let’s plan our next travel adventure, together!

Learn from Travel Hussies who Pack Up & Go, Get Out & Stay Out and have Been There & Done That. Stay tuned for blog updates from Travel Hussies around the world!
