Hi ladies,

We are really excited to present this special event for women travellers to celebrate International Women’s Day in cooperation with Girls on Travel Meetup Group.

This will be a fun and entertaining event with a panel of adventurous solo female travellers (names will be announced soon).

During the evening, they will share their travel stories and how solo travelling has helped them grow. Stories will be fun, scary or adventurous but one thing is sure, solo travel won’t have any secrets for you anymore. You will also have a chance to ask questions or share your own stories at the end of the talk. So whether you are already a solo traveller and want to connect with other ones, or whether you are considering your first solo trip and have burning questions this is the right place.

Your 2 travel experts hosts will be happy to answer any questions you might have related to solo travel as well.

The Portobello Star is a cosy and intimate place, we will have the whole upstairs which makes it the perfect location for a great evening. Oh and did we mention the 2-4-1 cocktails until 9pm? They are delicious!

So come and join as a solo or with your friends to support our amazing panel and hear incredible stories.

We are looking forward to seeing you there to celebrate International Women's Week together!
