Who is Lioness

LIONESS:  A woman who pursues her dreams with fierce passion; she lives her life abandoned of all fear; she craves  adventure with no boundaries; she collects life-experiences not things; she seeks kindred-spirit sisters to join her journey; she lives in every moment as if its her last; most of all she knows she is limitless, unstoppable and unbreakable-SHE IS LIONESS.

WHY LIONESS TRAVEL EXISTS?

To provide a mobile platform through which women can discover their dreams through travel and connect with other like-minded women with whom they can take on their next travel destination.

  • To empower, equip and inspire women to not just pursue their dreams but to live them.  
  • To create a safe, all-female travel community in which women can connect and travel with each other more easily and economically.
  • To provide a medium through which Lionesses can make an impact while on their travel journeys.
  • To resource the female traveler, experienced or not,  with local guides, hostesses and/or buddy connections while on her travel destination.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Here at Lioness, we believe travel is the birthing ground of dreams.  The discovery of new places, people and ways of life, literally open your mind to a whole new world and way of thinking.  All it takes is that one moment of seeing the magical beauty of the Sphinx or the wondrous site of Machu-Picchu or having a conversation with a local stranger on what makes a good Turkish coffee good, while waiting for your late-night train.

Travel is the creator of that one powerful moment of what it feels like to be free and on top of the world; that one moment of discovering the ‘real’ you and making a promise to love yourself, no matter who or what happens to you.  Every place, person and new experience adds up to that life-changing, life-defining moment of discovering your purpose, your dream, the very essence of who you are and believing that you have what it takes to make your dream your reality.

We believe, travel isn’t just about seeing the world and new things; its about how those new discoveries and experiences shape and mold us into the beautiful human-beings we are, and will continue to become as we live our lives in the pursuit of purpose and giving a helping hand when we can and especially when we cannot.  

Lioness Travel won’t stop until every woman discovers her dream and sees herself for who she is…for the Lioness living within her-SHE IS LIONESS.
