What is the Women in Travel Summit?

The Women in Travel Summit (also called WITS) is a conference for women travel bloggers and influencers. It’s put on by Wanderful, an international community of women who travel. The conference started because the women of Wanderful saw a need for an event where travel bloggers and influencers could come together to share their experiences about being a woman in this industry. The conference features hands-on, applicable workshops and networking opportunities to empower and inspire women in the blogging and influencer world.

The 6th Annual Women in Travel Summit (WITS) is in Portland, Maine from May 3-5, 2019.

Science World is a “must-do” if you are visiting Vancouver, BC with a toddler. It’s such a well-thought out museum with tons of things for children and adults. Even if you aren’t a fan of science museums, it’s a fun place to play with your kids. We checked it out last year when our toddler was 2 years old and we returned this year when he was almost 3 years old along with our 2-month-old baby.
Wow! Simply wow! I’ve wanted to stay at the Fairmont Empress Hotel since they donated to one of the many auctions I used to manage for nonprofits back in my former life. There was something so magical and authentic about the hotel and I knew if I ever had the opportunity to head up to Vancouver Island, that’s where I’d stay in Victoria, BC. When my Mom offered to watch our toddler for the weekend, I seized this opportunity to finally stay at the Fairmont Empress Hotel and explore Victoria, BC. We were able to get a fantastic rate through Boeing.

When we saw that Victoria, BC offered a tour of a castle, we figured we should probably check it out. Thankfully, it was a stop on our Victoria Sightseeing Tour. The road to get up to Craigdarroch Castle is narrow, so our tour bus dropped us at the bottom of the hill and was walked up. This was cool because we really got that “Oh Wow” moment when the castle appear around the corner.
