Because Life's Too Short to Stay Home

Travel with the Wander Women

A Note from Cindy Minor

The vision for Wander Women came to me way back in 2012.

I'd been divorced for a couple of years. My daughter (my only child) was in high school and the realization that I was about to become an empty-nester was setting in. 

I'm not saying I was in a panic, but the vision of lots of free time and no one to spend it with was looming large. 

The conversation in my head went something like this...

My daughter is leaving.

I'm going to be bored.

I can't just work all the time.

What am I going to do?

What do I WANT to do?

I'm going to Travel!

(Before my knees give out.)

Yes. That's it. I have a long list of places I'd like to go.

But wait...who am I going to travel with?

I need a group...

And thus was born the vision of the "Wander Women" - a group of people who want to travel, who have the time and interest, BUT might need a group to go with. They may want a group because they're single, or their spouse is not interested. OR, they have a spouse who IS interested and they want to come too - great!

Because Life is Too Short to Stay Home

In September of 2020, my friend, Susan Parke, Owner of Beyond Cotton in Little Rock, called me and said, "I want to go somewhere...maybe not now (pandemic and all...), but I want to plan to go somewhere." 

I looked around and found a great deal for an all-inclusive resort in Cancun, Mexico that required a small deposit and had excellent cancellation and final payment terms. 

Thus, a partnership was born. 

Susan and Cindy, together, are building a community of like minded people who are ready to go. Who enjoy traveling with friends and meeting new people. People who have the time, the resources and the desire...that is Wander Women. 

Let me be clear....although we are Wander Women - we welcome EVERYONE 

Single Women

Groups of Friends



Significant Other

Because if COVID has taught us anything, it's life's too short!
