Phyllis Hunter, owner of The Spice Diva Emporium, will introduce us to accompanying aromatic spices.

The evening is complimentary to attend and we’ll have wine available. It is a great opportunity to stock up on your spices and olive oil as all attendees will receive 20% off The Spice Diva purchases on the evening of the event. Support local women-owned businesses!

The Charlottesville Women’s Travel Alliance meets several times a year to gather like-minded women who are passionate about travel. Women of all ages and travel experiences are encouraged to come and network with other women, share special travel moments and learn about travel from the unique vantage point of the female traveler.

Our goal is to inspire women to go out and explore the world. We hope to provide the opportunity to share ideas, plan small group trips and motivate you to take flight. We have a private Facebook page if you’d like to join. Email us to request that your name is added to our mailing list.

Packing for a vacation or business trip can be daunting. It forces you to look into the future and make decisions based on what you predict the weather will be, what activities you will be participating in and what you’ll need to be comfortable. Once you’re done thinking about what to pack you must fit all those items into a piece of luggage that is much smaller than, say, your bathtub.

We approach packing as an art and a skill.

Everyone who works at Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters is a Packing Specialist and we are here to help make the task of packing easier, more efficient and enjoyable. We can teach you how to pack for specific types of travel as well as advise on what to bring, how to fit it all in your suitcase and talk you out of packing too much.
