More Than Just Instagram: Dame Traveler's Mission, Heart & Soul

Dame Traveler is more than an Instagram account filled dream-inducing pictures of women gazing off in far-off places. We are more than a hashtag categorizing women’s travels. Dame Traveler’s mission is to create a movement that inspires and empowers women to travel more, experience more and be more.

From backpackers in Peru, to artists in Berlin, to storytellers in Morocco, we believe in celebrating the diversity and bravery of women from around the world who are not afraid to think (and live) outside of the box. Dame Travelers exemplify the spirit of true adventurers while stumping assumptions that the world is unsafe and unfit for solo female travel. Our curated collection of stories from the road and illustrative, empowering photography allows any woman to travel the world with every snapshot shared. Our mission is not to portray an unimaginable fantasy, but to tell real life stories of female travelers who made their dreams a reality and the tales they’ve collected along the way.

We believe in the incredible power that travel lends to those who experience it. Dame Traveler’s mission is to inspire, but it is also to encourage and embolden the women who follow us. We believe in the women who dare to dream. It is the women who leap into the possibilities of life that lead lives well-lived.

Our amazing community of female travelers gathers in the online space. It’s our hub for communicating, for connecting. And it’s a beautiful, beautiful thing. However, it seems like we, as modern people, attain so much of our worth to numbers. How many likes we receive, how many followers we attain in a day. These frivolous numbers seem to be the deciding factor of our value. It’s our hope to remind our fellow Dame Travelers that our heart and soul remain outside of the digital space. It’s so much bigger than that. We may “meet” in DM’s and likes and comments, but we aspire to inspire you so much more.

Dame Traveler’s mission is to give female travelers the encouragement, the resources and the passion for all that is waiting for them in the world. Adventure, experiences, learning, growing, changes. Dame Traveler’s heart and soul comes from the stories you tell us from your life on the road. Our passion lies in the ups and downs and beautiful memories you have made while savoring the world.


Dame Traveler is yours. It’s your place, it’s your community. It’s your platform to share your stories and lessons learned. Dame Traveler is your hub for inspiration.

A Dame Traveler is any woman who aspires to be and do and see and learn from this world. You.
