@abadesi I will put a more detailed post up a bit later but basically, I saw how well Facebook groups worked at encouraging travelers and helping them with information. However, I saw a flaw in this, the information was not well organized and kept. The system relied to heavily on Facebook. I also hated how my newsfeed for personal friends became things from people I didn't know. I always liked forums but hated how they were organized, so I'm striving to do better. There are several social networking sites for travelers but I found that I was only ever added by men. That adding would stop if I had a photo of me and a boy. So I thought if I created a space for women only, perhaps it would help encourage some of them to book that ticket and fulfill their desires. A place where people can be warned about scams and maybe even meet up with locals. The website is new but growing and I have huge hopes for it. That's the short version :)
