JOIN SOLO TRAVEL CORNER
We run weekly meetups on Zoom that help you become better educated on travel topics and destinations, become friends with other solo travelers who are passionate like you, and make solo travel a part of your every day.
Check out our meetup types below:
Build the best and safest solo travel experiences by learning directly from solo traveling women who have been to the destinations you want to travel to.
This month we learned about: Creating safe solo travel experiences and making the most of your time traveling in South Africa 🇿🇦 + Peru 🇵🇪.
Learn from the group or an expert about the travel topics that will enable you to make the most our of your upcoming solo travels.
This month we talked about: Budgeting for solo travel, how to travel sustainably, and how to best build travel credit card points.
Have an idea for a travel blog or business? Want feedback on your travel photography?
Get clarity on your idea or improve your travel project by getting feedback directly from your target audience - passionate travelers in our community!
These hot seat sessions are open discussions where you present your travel project to the group and we help you with the feedback you need.
A private Facebook group where you can get the most out of the community by asking others advice on upcoming trips, sharing your story, and meeting solo travelers in your area.
This space also houses our shared calendar of events, solo travel educational materials, and polls where members vote on upcoming meetups.
Every 4 - 6 weeks, we choose a travel story for our book club.
Book club is a fantastic way to fill your time in between your travels in a way that makes you feel connected to the travel world again.
In discussions, you'll talk about how the story relates to your own, get deep on what it means to be a traveler, and learn about stories you wouldn't have otherwise which may just inspire you to take a new trip.
This is a community that grows with you. If you have an idea for a new type of session, please share it so the group can vote to include it!
"...I was desperate to find a community of women that loved travel as much as I did. Not only did I find like-minded travelers, but I found a way to feel connected while social distancing and ways to decompress during all of life's craziness through incredible sessions like yoga and guided meditation + journaling. I've never had a bad or even sub-par experience when I've been with the Lone Travel Girl squad!"

"I'm very new to solo travel and really wanted to connect with likeminded women who I could learn from. Lone Travel Girl's virtual chats have done just that. I have loved meeting new people and sharing our enthusiasm for travel. It's been a very rewarding experience and I feel grateful to be part of such a wonderful community."

Being able to communicate and build relationships with travellers across the world is a huge appeal for me. They can provide advice on their home country, which I find a refreshing change to reading blogs and books! It’s so inspirational speaking to fellow women about experiences relating to travel. We all have a common interests and Callie is helping build up this community, something that I am so proud to be involved in!"

Sessions will be scheduled according to number of members, availability, and time zones. The number of meetups will increase as the community grows. We are currently running:
- 2 solo travel topic chats / week
- 1 book club meetup every 5-6 weeks
- 1 travel/documentary meetup every 5-6 weeks
- 2 solo travel destination series sessions / month

All members will be polled on their timezone and typical availability to make sure we have enough sessions that cover your timezone.
All sessions that are not open forum discussions (such as Q&A chats on destinations and group activities) will be recorded and made available to you if you cannot join live.
You certainly do not have to be traveling solo right now to be a part of this community!
Much of the education and discussions in the community will have an emphasis on solo travel.
But whether you're a full-time solo traveler, someone who has gone on one solo trip and loved it, or plan to one day start solo traveling... Please consider joining!
That love for or want to solo travel is a special bond that ties us to one another. We are women who are living a bit “different” than society expects, and that is what is bringing us together in this space.

Hi! 👋🏼 I'm Callie, founder of The Lone Travel Girl.
The story of The Lone Travel Girl began when I quit my corporate job in 2017 and took my first solo trip across Europe and Asia.
During that time, I realized there was a whole world of women out there traveling solo. Silly me, I really had no idea.
I became familiar with and inspired by this fantastic community. I found there were tons of travel pages sharing dreamy destinations on social media, bloggers talking about their solo travels, and platforms where travelers shared their tips and itineraries.
📖 Where are the people sharing the STORIES behind solo female travelers' photos?
🎉 Who is building these women up and celebrating their solo travels?
👭 Where is the community creating strong relationships between these women?
👚 And lastly - who is creating items that shows off solo female travelers' pride for solo travel?
The truth was, nothing like this existed! And I decided to change that. 💪
My mission is to celebrate, educate, and connect all types of solo female travelers.
Whether you travel internationally full-time and work as a digital nomad, or you’re a stay-at-home mom who sometimes takes solo weekend trips… you should feel proud of your solo travel accomplishments and have a place to feel celebrated.
