Multicultural Travel News

Multicultural Travel News newsletter (MTN) covers travel news of interest to ethnic and niche travelers and those who market to them. We write about destinations that interest multicultural travelers or have outreach campaigns to travelers of Hispanic, African American, Asian American and other cultural backgrounds; women; LGBT travelers and people with disabilities.
Multicultural Travel News is also written for leisure and business travelers looking for what to see and do and for marketing executives interested in ideas, best practices and the business case for targeting so-called "minority" travelers. We cover cities and countries, hotels, airlines, cruise lines, convention and visitor bureaus, tour operators and other travel marketers with a multicultural angle. Multicultural Travel news is written and edited by Lisa Skriloff.

Inspiring Women in Inspiring Places With New Travel Company Vaera Journeys


Vaera Journeys — retreats for women on the verge of new ideas. Vaera’s retreats are styled to help women take their personal and professional goals to the next level by helping them to explore a project that gives them purpose. Vaera Journeys is the brainchild of freelance travel writer and entrepreneur Meagan Drillinger based in both New York City and Mexico. It began as a way to bring together her passion for uplifting other women to follow their own passions with transformational travel. Each Journey is inspired by a unique destination, and offers curated experiences designed to foster creative discussion, including three Mastermind Sessions with a featured guest speaker, and one-on-one coaching. Retreats are kept small, with up to 10 spots, to maintain an intimate space where each Vaera community member can share and grow her talents. During Vaera Journey’s retreat this Spring, May 2-7, 2019, attendees will meet in stunning Puerto Vallarta on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. Highlights of the trip include outdoor activities; project-centered exercises; a full-day excursion to an off-the-beaten-path destination; and the Mastermind Sessions led by entrepreneur and business coach, Elena Ollick, professional blogger and serial entrepreneur with a host of successful startup websites under her belt. Women build three- and six-month plans while on the retreat, with follow up from Vaera Journeys after the return home to ensure they are on the path to achieving their goals. Rates start at $1,950, based on double occupancy. For more information about Vaera Journeys visit www.vaerajourneys.com. @vaerajourneys
