Have you ever been alone in a new city and wished you knew some great little bar to hide in, or been with a group of friends and wanted to impress them with your insider knowledge? Are you travelling alone and looking for a friendly place to have dinner, get a drink without getting hit on and find safe ways to explore? If you said yes then this is the blog for you!
The Wandering Tattler is a travel blog with a difference – rather than just review hotels and tell you what we did, we’re asking women who live and work in cities all around the world to share their favourite places to eat, drink, shop, play, dance and explore. Essentially, we’re asking them to give away all their secrets for you to enjoy.
Why only women? Well, we’re not anti-men! We noticed that the women we knew were more likely to ask for recommendations on Facebook or look on personal blogs for tips about new places they were visiting. New cities can be especially challenging for solo female travellers. And we know so many great women whose opinions we value. It seemed like a natural fit.
If you have any questions about any of our guides, we’d be happy to forward them on – just let us know in the comments.
