 MISSION & VISION

 

Are YOU dreaming of travel or a life change?

 

MISSION: Our aim to you

Many women find themselves with the following issues.

  • Don’t know where to start in your travel plans?
  • Nervous about traveling alone?
  • No friends that can commit to traveling with you?
  • Your partner just doesn’t have the travel bug?
  • Tired of living vicariously through travel bloggers and IG feeds?
  • Time for a change and a much-needed break?
  • Tired of not “fitting in” to an age bracket?
  • Want a new wanderlust women tribe?

But that’s Ok you are not alone and I can help you with your journey.

You also don’t have to be single to join us, just have a passion for travel, an open mind and we will take care of the rest.

 

 

Welcome to Wanderlust Solo Women Tours.

Empowering women to build confidence and friendships through travel.

 

Founded here in New Zealand by Gina, who wanted to share her passion for travel and meeting people.

After traveling the world solo later in life she knew how this changed her, built confidence and life long friendships. She noticed how some women wanted to travel but just didn’t know where to start, either because they had no one to travel with or just lacked the confidence to do so, and that’s where WANDERLUST SOLO WOMEN TOURS was born.

Empowering Women through travel: this can be a life changing experience for some. Getting out of your comfort zone, testing boundaries, reconnecting with self and just having time to be the TRUE YOU!

 

Authentic, boutique travel.

Fun, flexible, bespoke small group women’s tours and retreats.

We aim to assist you to expand your horizons, build confidence, form enduring friendships and have a fabulous time doing so! Women from of all walks of life are warmly welcomed and encouraged to join our tours and retreats while enjoying taking time out for themselves.

Take the road less traveled with us and travel like a local, not a tourist!

You’ll enjoy beautiful sights whilst tasting delicious locally produced food and discovering some great secrets only the locals know. We incorporate all things good, with fun and engaging activities, cultural connection, yoga and meditation, a little bit of pampering, as well as optional extras with plenty of laughs along the way. Where possible we also support a  “give back to the community day” with emphasis on Environmental and Social projects.

There is something for everyone! Treating your Mind, Body and Soul.

Our intimate, small groups allow for strong friendships and genuine connections to be made as well as allowing for flexibility.

Come and relax in Rarotonga, bliss out in Bali and reconnect in the Coromandel, NZ and Beyond!

My journey

Kia ora, I’m Gina – the founder of Wanderlust Solo Tours.

am passionate about ensuring my tours and retreats are a balance of activates and relaxation, while building connections, new friendships and making sure you have a good laugh along the way!

 

How it all began:

I was nearly 40. Yes, 40 years old. Where did the time go? Wasn’t I supposed to have figured it all out by now?

I had a house, I had a job, I had my own business, yet I wasn’t happy or fulfilled. I felt the lack of what I “should” have in my life.

Then it all changed over night. A bad long term relationship breakdown left me reassessing everything, wondering why I had all the material things yet felt so empty.

I had worked hard and made sacrifices. I had the dream house and a good business, but a huge mountain of debt after the separation and a lot of unresolved emotions.

This left me craving for more. READ MORE ABOUT ME AND HOW TRAVEL HELPED ME CHANGE MY LIFE.

“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.”

My prayers are with Bali.
This never ending pandemic is hitting hard in Indonesia and Bali is in the throes of a lockdown.

The Balinese people are resilient, but without clear support, people are suffering.

If you love Bali and can’t wait to get back to enjoy the holidays and retreats you enjoy there, don’t forget them too in their time of need.

Over the course of the pandemic WSWT has donated to trusted people on the ground in Bali to support local villages and people.

If you want to help out in some small way and have retreated in Bali with me before, here is who I have donated to:
@letshelpbali
@baliturtles
@lilylanevillas
@bawabali_official

Also sending thoughts to our Pacific cousins in Fiji and to one of my most favourite countries, Cuba 🇨🇺

Beautiful words from some of my retreat guests.
Remembering my “WHY” and going back to read these reviews makes my heart sing.

Giving women a safe and fun space to be themselves, relax and reconnect: whether that’s with nature, their creative side or themselves is so important to me.

We sometimes get lost in the hustle n bustle of life and it’s very easy to lose ourselves. And feel guilty to take time for just for you.

My message today……Don’t feel guilty!

“When you’re stressed out, exhausted or struggling through a crisis of some sort, it doesn’t always help to be ripped from your sleep before dawn, persuaded to push your body to the max, and deprived of your favourite foods and drinks. When I’m feeling fragile, I like to know wine and chocolate are there for me if I need them.

It is with sweet relief then that I arrive at a remote Waihī log cabin for Wanderlust Solo Women Tours’ weekend retreat to find my fellow guests drinking wine and beer in the spa. A steaming pot of mulled wine is on the stove. The ingredients for the pizzas we will make for dinner are laid out on the kitchen bench. The chocolate brownies and truffles we’ll treat ourselves to afterwards are in the fridge. Suddenly the typically busy week that was seems like it happened in a parallel dimension.”

Thank you to @stufftravelnz - Stuff Wellness for this beautiful article, in which this is a snippet of the magic experience you will have on retreat.
