🥳 This week has seen WalkingWomen have its 2nd birthday 🥳, and here we are, the sisters – Ginny and Sara – celebrating this milestone as we reflect on the incredible journey we’ve embarked upon together. Two years of laughter, celebration, and the joy of doing what we love.
When we took over WalkingWomen in August 2021, the world was slowly emerging from the grip of the Covid pandemic. Travel, which had once been a natural part of life, had come to a standstill. In the midst of these challenging times, we saw an opportunity to not only revive travel but to create something truly special. The idea of offering outdoor holidays to empower and connect women, helping them regain their confidence in travel was born. And here we are, two years later with a thriving company and stories to share.
Since that moment, we’ve had the privilege of developing.planning and hosting over 60 holidays. These journeys have brought together 431 incredible women from all corners of the world. What’s even more heartwarming is that over 60% of these amazing adventurers have returned to explore with us again, becoming loyal supporters of the WalkingWomen family. We are thrilled to have 74 women who have embarked on more than one adventure with us in these two years. A special shout-out to our fabulous guest who has joined us for an astonishing six trips! 🤩
Our journey doesn’t end with the holidays we’ve organized. We took a step further and created the WalkingWomen Facebook Community, a virtual space that has grown from a single member to a vibrant community of 1800 members in just a few months. And let’s not forget our beloved newsletter – nearly 4000 subscribers engaged and giving us feedback on our updates, tips, and stories, connecting us even more and helping our development.
None of this would have been possible without our incredible team. We’ve built a network of guides and partners across the UK, Europe, India, and Canada. They are not just part of the WalkingWomen team – they are the heart and soul of what we do. Their expertise, dedication, and passion have been instrumental in shaping WalkingWomen into what it is today.
**Today is a moment of celebration**, not just for us but for the entire WalkingWomen community – the amazing women who have journeyed with us supported us, inspired us, and shared their ideas. Thank you for your spirit of adventure, for walking together, for connecting with us and each other, and reviving your spirits in the company of fellow travellers.
As we look ahead, we are filled with hope and enthusiasm for what the future holds. We aim to continue serving you, our wonderful adventurers, with more exciting journeys, heartwarming connections, and unforgettable experiences.
In the words of one of our cherished guests, “It all felt re-energized and shiny new. I really liked having a local guide. I will definitely choose to come again.”
Please do come again. Lace-up those hiking boots, let your spirits roam free, and let’s create more memories together on the trails. 🥾🥾🙏
Thank you for two incredible years of WalkingWomen, and here’s to many more years of laughter, camaraderie, and the magic of exploration.
With warm wishes,
Ginny & Sara
