We receive lots of emails and contacts from girls asking us the question “How do I become a part of We Are Travel Girls?” and the answer is there are a lot of ways to be part of this female travel community! In this post we share 16 different ways you can become part of We Are Travel Girls!

1. GET FEATURED ON OUR INSTAGRAM

We Are Travel Girls started as a community on Instagram, where we curated images from women travelling all over the globe to inspire others to do the same. Since we started the page we have evolved to have many more social platforms, but at the core we still connect with our followers through Instagram and we love that we can bring attention to women all over the world by featuring their travels.

2. WRITE FOR US

WeAreTravelGirls.com is a site written for women by women in the community. Since we launched just one year ago, we have published over 300 articles from over 150 contributors. We publish informative and inspiring travel articles 5 days a week and accept submissions for consideration directly on our site. So if you want to get a new audience to find your blog, get writing and send us in a travel story!

3. JOIN A MEET-UP

We host meet-ups around the world bringing together our community offline. These events are a great place to network with other girls and create long term friendships. Many girls who have met at one of our events have gone on to travel together or work together. We even met our first WATG intern at our meet-up in Bali last year and she has been working with us ever since!

4. JOIN ONE OF OUR TRIPS OR RETREATS

We Are Travel Girls is not just an online community, it is now the creator of epic trips and retreats around the world! The first trips we are offering are our Bali Retreats this fall, followed by trips to Japan and Malawi  in 2018! The goal of these trips is to bring together a group of like-minded girls and have one the best weeks of our lives together! As well as a packed itinerary of activities and sightseeing we will be teaching a series of workshops on entrepreneurship, blogging, landing sponsorships, growing your brand and social presence and so much more!

5. JOIN OUR FACEBOOK GROUP

Our female only private Facebook group is a great place to meet other girls in the community, share your own blog content and ask for travel tips. Many girls have met through this group and gone on to travel together!

6. COME TO BALI!

The We Are Travel Girls Bali Retreats are starting in October and November this year. We will be bringing together 14 girls each week at a luxurious villa and showing them the best of Bali! You will come away from the retreat having experienced some of the best insider spots in Bali (Becky lived there for the last year!), made great friendships, and jump started your entrepreneurial and blogging journey!

Please get in touch by telling us which city you want to host in, what type of meet-up you want to do (a casual meet-up at a bar, a brunch, walking & photography tour etc.) and when you want to do it.
