WE ARE TRAVEL GIRLS REACHES 200K ON INSTAGRAM

March 23, 2017 by @VanessaRivers

As you probably know I am the Co-Founder of a female travel site called We Are Travel Girls and this week we reached a new milestone of 200,000 followers on Instagram – @WeAreTravelGirls!

Fellow Founder Becky van Dijk is currently living in Bali and I am living in London, so to celebrate Becky captured some beautiful sunset shots with girls from our community who attended the second WATG Bali Meet Up in Canggu, and I invited girls from the community who were in London last weekend, to meet me in Kensington Gardens to capture another 200K celebration shot!

Since our last 100K milestone a lot has happened. Becky left her successful career working in finance in London and moved to Bali with her boyfriend Ryan, to work on We Are Travel Girls full time. I am still living in London and expecting my first child (due May 27th)! We Are Travel Girls welcomed our first awesome intern, Shannon Bosseli, brought on a regular fitness contributor, Rebecca Louise, and hired a graphic intern, Leah Sullivan!

Special thanks goes out to the ladies who braved the cold and wind in London to help me hold the balloons down and capture these photos! And a huge thank you to my “Instagram Husband” for taking the photos for us in front of Royal Albert Memorial, even though I know he would have rather been at home watching sports!

Becky and I started We Are Travel Girls to promote and bring together female travelers and we are so excited and thankful to have such an awesome community of girls around the world! We share inspiring pictures daily on our WATG Instagram, we publish 5  informative travel articles a week on WeAreTravelGirls.com and we are super excited to announce that we just launched We Are Travel Girls Trips and will be kicking off with a retreat in Bali this Oct/Nov!

We will also have our first WATG Meet Up in Paris in April and Chicago in June, as well as our fourth London Meet Up in July, which Becky will be joining me for! To be notified of details for these upcoming We Are Travel Girls Meet Ups and other events please be sure to SUBSCRIBE to our email list.

Thank you for being part of our travel community!

X, Vanessa + Becky
