This week we held the official We Are Travel Girls launch event at Yashin Ocean House in South Kensington, London. Its been almost a year since I started the WATG Instagram account upon which the female travel community has been built, so I was super excited to meet some of the girls that have supported our journey so far!
Whilst I have been working away on WATG for nearly a year, we hadn’t had an ‘official’ launch, so to celebrate we invited a small group of travel bloggers to join us for an evening of cocktails and canapés. During the evening we shared travel stories and individual goals, and Vanessa and I presented our own plans for the future of WATG. One of the key things that we took away from this, was the groups interest in community meet-ups, so we will be doing plenty more of those in the future! (see below how to join)
Special thanks goes to Yashin Ocean House for hosting our event. We enjoyed delicious and very Instagrammable London Funfair cocktails, close in flavour to Pimms and a selection of incredible sushi dishes, including tuna with truffle-infused ponzu jelly, grouper carpaccio with summer truffle and the salmon sushi with truffle. The private dining room was the perfect setting for our intimate gathering.
Thanks to London Grace for the nail polishes and manicure experiences, to Lomax gym for the class passes, to Wanderers & Warriors for the cute travel t-shirts, and to SummerLove Swim for the eco bikini.
It’s an exciting time to become part of our female travel community and we were touched by the words of encouragement and support from the ladies that joined us.
