Last weekend WATG Founders Becky van Dijk and Vanessa Rivers hosted the fourth We Are Travel Girls London Meet Up, at Duke Of Clarence Pub in South Kensington. We had a great turnout despite the fact that the venue had to be changed last-minute from a picnic in Hyde Park to a pub due to typical rainy British weather. So thank you to all of you who took time out of your day to join us!
During the meet up many of you asked how We Are Travel Girls came about. Becky and Vanessa met on a course at London College of Fashion. In November 2015, Becky started the @WeAreTravelGirls Instagram page, initially with the goal of simply creating a place to meet like-minded travel girls. And last spring they joined to co-found the company together. They launched WeAreTravelGirls.com in June 2016 and have worked hard to make this a community to inspire, connect, educate and empower female travelers around the world.
We Are Travel Girls publishes 5 stories a week from women all across the globe, so if you have an informative travel post to share please contribute a story! And this year we launched our Travel Girls Getaways kicking off with Bali Retreats in October and November. There are still a few places left on each week so if you would like to join us for a week in paradise please fill out an application on our Bali Retreat Page!
Special thanks goes out to Serena Houdrouge for photographing the event. Serena is a very talented London-based photographer who has worked with us on several WATG projects.
