April meetup of The Nomadic Network: Portland!

Don't you find it inspiring when people share how they made something seemingly impossible happen?

Prepare to be inspired!

In celebration of Women's History Month (this was originally planned for March 19 and had to be postponed), Kelly Lewis will be speaking to the community all about her passion for travel and how she started a bunch of female-centric travel businesses!

KELLY LEWIS is a world traveler, writer, editor, publisher, event coordinator and all-around travel industry maven! Founder of three female-travel-focused companies and the Executive Editor at Unearth Women.

-- Unearth Women: a print and digital women's travel publication with a mission to champion female travelers and bring to light women's issues around the world.
-- Go! Girl Guides: her company that publishes the first female-specific guidebooks to global destinations (Thailand, Argentina, Mexico, London and New York City, with Costa Rica coming soon!)
-- Damesly: her woman-owned boutique tour company offering women-only adventures, workshops, + self-discovery trips. Each tour is packed with full itineraries, designed for creative and professional women to experience the world while making new friendships.
-- Women's Travel Fest: her annual sold-out event (2020 is the 7th year) that aims to inspire & empower women to travel the world safely and with less hesitation.

Kelly is passionate about teaching people (women especially) how to explore the world.

Join us for a special TNN After-Hours Event at local-favorite Kiva Tea Cafe! On hand will be Kiva’s delicious everyday beverage menu plus various wines for purchase. Also, open that evening will be the adjacent Lane Gallery, with works from the renowned Gila Lane and other local Portland artists!

Come out to meet and mingle with like-minded travelers, have a delicious drink, make new friends, and listen to a local travel expert.

Tickets are $10 USD and you can bring a friend for free!

Your first drink is on us too!

See you soon,

The Nomadic Network Team, Lisa, & Rachel


It's our newest initiative and is a global community of travel enthusiasts who support, connect, educate, and inspire one another to travel better, cheaper, and longer (created by me, Nomadic Matt). We strive to provide our fellow travelers with the tools, resources, tips, and knowledge to enable them to confidently plan global adventures. We encourage and eagerly share our global know-how with others. We do this with these local TNN chapter meet-ups in cities across the world that provide time for you to meet and connect with other travelers. Whether you're planning a short jaunt to a nearby city or an indefinite round-the-world trip, The Nomadic Network is here to help the world travel — one nomad at a time.
