What we're about

This is a group for women who love to experience life, from attending local events together to travelling abroad. I look forward to inviting you to attend some wonderful local happenings as well as half day workshops on a variety of topics and weekend retreats away. You can read more about our overseas retreats and inspirational journeys below. I hope you can join us. Also open to suggestions so please let us know if something pops up on the calendar you think we may enjoy.

Tammie has been running retreats and inspirational journeys for over 7 years for small groups of women. These trips are suitable for women over the age of 18 who are travelling on their own or with friends. You don’t need to think about anything just arrive and everything else is taken care of for you. Solo travellers can take the opportunity to re-invent themselves, reflect and do some exploring on their own as well as in the group. People travelling with friends will have wonderful memories to share well into the future.

One of the reasons I started running my own trips was because I couldn’t find a package that met my personal preferences. A lot of retreats I found I liked the sound of, but perhaps the balance of activities wasn’t right i.e. too much yoga or meditation, or not enough free time. Often twin share was compulsory and being a light sleeper and a snorer makes this not an option for some of us, (or some other poor person!) I wanted to have fun, eat good food, make new friends, explore a different culture, relax and rejuvenate, soak in the beauty of a different landscape and learn something new about myself.

This is what I hope I have created for you. I would love you to join me ♥

Our current retreats are held in Bali and Australia, we currently run sightseeing trips to India, Morocco and Egypt. More new locations to come for 2019 as well as some local 1 day and weekend getaways. Always open to suggestions, so please just put it out there :) Tammie
