Women's Adventures

2020 Women’s Adventures

By  | 

I’m planning now for next year’s Adventures. Here’s what I have in mind.

March/April: Istanbul, Turkey

  • Topkapi Palace, from the harem chambers to the collection of jewel-encrusted gifts
  • The Blue Mosque
  • Hagia Sophia
  • Turkish Delight, Baklava, and other mouthwatering treats
  • Boat ride on the Bosphorus
  • Cooking class, dance class, and more!
  • Details coming this summer!

May/June: Granada, Spain

  • Alhambra Palace
  • Tapas Tour
  • Flamenco Performance
  • The Moorish neighborhood
  • Luxurious Hammam baths
  • Flamenco class
  • Details coming this summer!

May/June: Morocco

I’m still working on this one, but I’m sure it will be in the north this time. It will probably include Chefchaouen, the famous Blue City. I’m considering making this a 3-4 day add-on to the Granada trip.

Details coming this summer!

August: Peru

Machu Picchu!!!
  • Hiking among Incan ruins
  • An Earth Mother ceremony with a shaman
  • Machu Picchu
  • Encounters with the teens from the Niños del Sol Children’s Home
  • Optional side trip to Lake Titicaca
  • The 2019 trips couldn’t have been more perfect, so these will be mostly the same!
  • Details coming this summer!

A few things are always the same with my trips:

  • I’ll aim to keep the price under $1500 for the week
  • Price will include lodging, breakfast, and a full roster of activities. Lunches and dinners will be in affordable restaurants so each person can control their costs
  • Lodging will be in a shared house rather than hotels.
  • It’s a weeklong slumber party with a small group of 5-8 women.
  • My trips are intended for budget travelers who love to learn about people and cultures

Safe, comfortable, and fun!

Lauren made me feel comfortable and safe traveling to a part of the world I had never been to previously.  The personal experiences she shares regarding being a smart traveler and her cultural knowledge are valuable.

She is friendly, a good problem solver, respectful of personal space/time, and fun. I would definitely travel with her again. Read more “Safe, comfortable, and fun!”

I don’t see how anyone could provide a better experience

Lauren, our host, was a charming ambassador for Morocco; I don’t see how anyone could provide a better experience than she did for our group consisting of eight strangers (soon to become friends).

Thank you, Lauren, for planning such a wonderful trip and sharing so many fabulous experiences. Looking forward to your future retreats. Read more “I don’t see how anyone could provide a better experience”

A well-rounded immersion in culture

Lauren was a fantastic host —wonderful, full of life, giving, trustworthy and a ton of fun! Even though the stay was only a week long, we got such a beautiful, well-rounded immersion in the culture…

What this is not: your standard trip. We saved money along the way and got a fantastic cultural voyage. I can wholeheartedly recommend this experience and I will most definitely be joining Lauren again in the near future. Read more “A well-rounded immersion in culture”
