How to Make Travel Friends All Over the World [FB Live SHOW NOTES]


Does it feel like your world shrank a little after two years of pandemic life?

On this week’s show I’m talking with Beth Santos, ​​founder and CEO of Wanderful, a global lifestyle brand and inclusive community of thousands of travelers and travel content creators.

As we return to a more social life, it’s time to rebuild those connections – especially with women who love to travel as much as you!


Who am I? I’m Juliana Dever, an experiential travel expert.

I’ve been traveling the world for 25 years, I’ve visited over 60 countries, lived in 4, and spend about 4 months abroad every year traveling deeper into my favorite countries so I can bring you all the insider information and help you take off-the-beaten-path adventures!

I also work with women in Eastern Europe to create and curate small group Cultural Immersion Trips to their countries which directly support local female and family-owned businesses.



Now it’s time to introduce our fabulous guest Beth Santos!

Beth is the founder and CEO of Wanderful, a global lifestyle brand and inclusive community of thousands of travelers and travel content creators.

Wanderful reaches over 45,000 women each year through a thriving online membership network, local chapter events in 50 cities, global summits and small group trips.

Today Beth and I are going to talk about how you can make travel friends all over the world without even leaving your city. 

So let’s talk about women and travel.

About the Author

Hi. I’m Juliana Dever and according to science I have some sort of "exploration" gene. Embracing this compulsion, I spend a lot of time hurtling around the planet in metal tubes experiencing other cultures and writing humorous essays about it. Enjoy.
