In the Victorian era, adventurous women who traveled solo or together were looked upon as "unusual."

Thankfully, those days are over, and today, the world of women's travel is wide open.  Some women have found a lot of pleasure in women-only trips, leaving their spouses at home and enjoying the freedom to travel with only women. GoNOMAD has many stories about women-only trips, but the stories below are not only about that but about the experience of traveling as a women. 

You'll find a range of options for travelers in the articles below that appeal to every kind of woman. The possibilities are unlimited and we hope that these stories inspire your next journey!
