Give yourself a sense of a getaway
Desperate for the moment you can hop on a plane and escape from it all?
Sadly, it doesn’t sound like we’ll be able to do that anytime soon…. but there are still ways you can recreate those on-holiday vibes from the comfort of your own home.
So kick back and relax while you enjoy a little taster of your next adventure. You don’t even have to get up off the sofa.
Connect through online community The Travel Plug
The Travel Plug allows you to connect with like-minded women
Missed making new friends while travelling or even just the old ones you haven’t been able to see as much during lockdowns?
A new online platform and community for women, The Travel Plug, might help. Aimed at combating feelings of loneliness as well as connecting through friendship and networking, it brings together like-minded people who are passionate about travel.
Women will be able to meet fellow globetrotters, find travel inspiration and also access curated content covering new developments in the world of travel, such as border requirements, travel rules and country-specific updates.
