Women Making History | Beth Santos of Wanderful

Beth Santos is single handedly changing the way the travel industry operates. While traveling through São Tomé and Príncipe, Santos began a women’s travel blog called Wanderful to share experiences of female travelers worldwide. Years later, Wanderful is an international “sisterhood” of women who help each other travel the world, in real time.


Wanderful is both an online community where women can get travel advice from other women, and an “in-person sisterhood” where travelers can connect on a trip or at home. In 2014, Santos was recognized by President Obama as one of the top 100 travel bloggers for the creative way she captures her experiences abroad. She has also contributed to the industry with the creation of the Women in Travel Summit, a leading event for females in the travel industry. With in-depth guides what it’s like exploring every corner of the world from a female perspective, Beth Santos is making travel accessible and exciting to an entire generation of women, one story at a time.
