Girls That Wander launch new online community to help solo expats find friends in Spain

Girls That Travel

WHILE expat communities are often a thriving social network, life in another country can at first feel daunting and solitary.

Research has found that four out of five young people in Spain are lonely and this issue was only exacerbated by the COVID-19 lock down.

But during isolation, 22-year-old entrepreneur Heeral Pattni partnered up with the global online community Girls That Wander to create an online space where adventurers and travellers can meet.


The Travel Plug aims to bring together like-minded women who are passionate about travel and community.

Women can ask travel questions, find inspiration and e-meet fellow female globetrotters. 

Since its launch in July, the app now has users in over 50 countries, with almost 10% of users living in Spain.

Users will also receive weekly roundups of border changes, travel rules and country-specific updates to keep them in the loop.
