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 14 different ways you can become part of We Are Travel Girls!
1) GET FEATURED ON WE ARE TRAVEL GIRLS 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.
