Maiden Voyage Travel Blog

Carolyn Pearson founded after being in LA on a business trip. Unfortunately, she was there alone and as much as she wanted to go out and explore the cool nightspots and restaurants, it wasn’t something she felt she could do alone, so she created a network through which women can connect safely whilst on business travel and go out and explore, perhaps have dinner in great company. This is what you can expect form her travel blog.

Mighty Midtown Manhattan | MaidenVoyage

A terrace? Really? With a view of the top of Times Square and, if I look the other way, the Hudson River? I think I can hear the opening bars of Alicia Keys’s ‘New York’ as I take it all in. The thing is, if you’re going to New York City, there’s really only one...
