Last spring, I took a design course at London College of Fashion and met an outgoing, British girl named Becky van Dijk. We instantly bonded over a mutual love for travel and bikinis. Soon after, Becky started the Instagram page @WeAreTravelGirls, which quickly attracted thousands of female travel writers, who were looking to feature their photos and stories. It soon became apparent that there was a striking number of amazing travel blogs but there wasn’t a proper site that could showcase their unique stories to the world. And so the idea of We Are Travel Girls was born.
In April, we launched WeAreTravelGirls.com, where we curate and publish the best female travel stories from around the globe, and last weekend we hit an exciting milestone of 100,00 followers on Instagram! To celebrate, Becky and I, along with We Are Travel Girls Senior Contributor Caroline Bernthal, hit the streets of London for a photo shoot to commemorate this milestone. Thanks to all of you who have joined our community over the last 9 months by sharing your travel photos using #WeAreTravelGirls, by contributing your travel stories and visiting the website to read posts and leave comments. Our goal is to have more members of the community in our next milestone photo. So please CONTRIBUTE your travel stories for consideration and keep an eye out for upcoming We Are Travel Girls meet-ups!
It was a very windy day in London, which made getting a good photo of all of us with balloons,
not such an easy task, and pretty hilarious!
