    Women, Travel & Why We Should Go For It | VickyFlipFlop

    I take a look back at the wonderful female travellers I've had on the podcast this season. After 10 episodes I've had some interesting conversations and so I just wanted to highlight some of the main points we've made about female travel. From media representation, to female safety abroad and the financial side of being able to travel, here's a look at what is stopping women from just going for it when it comes to travel.

KateEmilyTravels ,

Brilliant podcast

I’ve really liked this series and hope you carry on for another 👍🏻
Nice to have a British travel podcast too, I listen to some others but often find the American ones a bit too over the top and cringy... so please keep going!

Inspiring listening ... I want to travel !

This is a great idea. Presentation is excellent but yet I feel included in the chat and discussion. I feel inspired to visit these places.

Love this show!

Just listened to the first two podcasts and loving the show so far! It's so nice to hear from ordinary, inspirational ladies who are just getting out there and travelling :)
