I am organizing a group for single mothers who have the desire to travel abroad but have limited resources in the way of childcare and possibly funds. My intention is to organize small travel groups for interesting and exotic destinations that may be intimidating price or logistics wise for mothers traveling with their kids. I'd generally prefer to stay away from cruises and all inclusives as those tend to be doable with/without a network like mine. I will be organizing trips to Europe, Africa, Asia, and South America. Obviously working moms won't be doing multiples of these in one year but these are larger trips that will be organized among some of the more exciting domestic destinations as well. What they will all have in common is consideration of your needs as a parent traveling alone with children, as well as a need to for some flexibility in paying for the trips. I will be discussing this with travel resource agents and plan to have the first meeting after the winter holidays. In the weeks leading up to our first meeting, please do sign-up and contact me to express your interest. Share a little about your circumstance (within your comfort zone) and the ages of your children. The more I know, the more easily I can start working on arrangements that will work for our groups. I am hoping for a good turnout as I'd like to see this be a real miracle worker for those among us (myself included) who long to see the world, but may not have what most would consider "ideal" circumstances. Together we can change what ideal means for us. -Claire

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
