Our Founders

We Are Travel Girls Founders

Becky van Dijk & Vanessa Rivers

Becky and Vanessa are two friends who met in London in 2015. They immediately bonded over a mutual love for travel and decided to come together to create a community to inspire women to get out of their comfort zone and see the world!

At the time they met there were no travel community blogs that consistently shared travel articles from women around the world. So, they decided to create a website to promote female travel bloggers and bring together women from all around the globe, publishing five new, authentic, travel articles every week.

Since We Are Travel Girls launched in 2016 we have expanded our brand to host events and meet-ups all over the world, curate bespoke luxury women’s only trips through Travel Girls Getaways, and proudly launched the charity branch of our company to give back through Travel Girls Giving.
