When I moved to Italy, I thought it was for one year of remote-working while I explored the country that had been calling to me since adolescence. And I found that I couldn’t leave. After living in the UK & North America, I was totally seduced by the spirit of a place that valued pleasure and personality over a professional pedigree. I found myself enraptured by small details - a wild parrot, the wax on a pear in a mercato stall - that I would never have noticed in my former life. Italy felt like my eyes were expanding and my lungs were drawing more breath. Plus, you know. The pasta.
Travel has always been the forward momentum in my life. And when that’s the case, not having the same holiday budget as a friend or being single were never reasons to skip a trip. So I’ve frequently traveled alone, with zero regrets and scores of incredible memories. But I have always craved the possibility of a travel community without having to compromise the style of trip I love. Especially after having travel temporarily taken away from us, why wait for the perfect timing or travel buddy to take the trip you’re dreaming of?
So, I created Stellavision, to offer women the best of it all. Stellavision is about connection; we want to celebrate and introduce you to the smart, cool, kind and independent women who love to travel in the same style as you do.
For networking, community, and to spread the word of feminist travel!
Thanks Charles! Excited to be here. If Italy is ever in your horizons, please reach out : )

Any feminist guides out here? 14 days ago
The consensus on the question I posted before seems to be that it's okay to encourage travel, but that we need to encourage traveling BETTER, whether that means encouraging choosing trains over planes, taking longer trips, seeing things in a different way, etc. My question now is HOW? How do I as a content creator do that? I mean, just lecturing people about sustainability or whatever isn't going to help. I'd love some PRACTICAL ideas on how to encourage better travel. So far I'm trying - not always succeeding - to avoid writing about the places that are very popular and instead focusing on lesser-traveled places. I'm avoiding big general listicles and instead trying to write about much narrower topics. As much as possible, I'm traveling by train or bus rather than plane and that'll come through when I write about a place. Any other suggestions?
Hi, I'm Averil Huck (new to this platform!) 👋 I'm a feminist tour guide in Prague, Czech Republic. I was wondering whether there were any other fellow guides focusing on feminist/queer history or other ethical topics. Should we start a new Topic specifically on these topics?
