Travel Club for Widows
Traveling in widowhood is a big step into a future of new experiences and adventure for widows. At Modern Widows Club, we know that there is value in learning from others who have done this before you, sharing their widow-wisdom to ease your concerns. That’s why we established the MWC Travel Club.
From trips to reach out to other widows around the globe, to trips for pleasure — let’s travel this road together and share new experiences! Join other widows with the same desire to travel, whether simply to broaden horizons or perhaps to build a mud hut in Kenya. This club is for the brave-hearted looking to find adventure!
How Will This Work?
Once you’ve enrolled, you’ll receive an email response to confirm your enrollment.
Once you confirm, you’ll receive an email with an itinerary of trips planned for the year ahead.
Book the trip(s) of your choice!
Further information will be provided upon enrollment. You’ll become excited about details and logistics in virtual meetings with your Traveling Wisters. Support will be provided through email.
The MWC Travel Club is facilitated by top-tier trained widow-advocates from Modern Widows Club, consisting of compassionate, experienced, non-judgmental, encouraging, and understanding individuals who are widowed and dating (or remarried) themselves. They are here for you every step of the way.
Traveling in widowhood is one way to add adventure to your life. You may think you will never have adventure again, but traveling with the MWC Travel Club is a way to comfortably get out there in the world and explore someplace new. Joining your Wisters (widow + sisters), you will learn from one another and grow together.
P.S. Please know that you are not alone and that many have walked this journey before! That combined wisdom is what makes the MWC Travel Club truly extraordinary. Connect and find your fellow traveling Wisters!

Janet’s father died in May 2005, and her husband died in February 2006. Her son, Joey, had just turned 6 years old, and he lost the 2 male role models in his life within 9 months of each other. At the time of her husband’s death, Janet realized that it was up to her to raise their son. Janet owns a travel agency and has come to focus on helping widows with travel for themselves and their families. When asked how she’s gotten through, she always answers, “I have faith. I could not do it without God.” Janet loves sharing her love and laughter with others and has volunteered to share her insight with other widows. She’s into health and wellness, and loves the natural approach first with her Young Living essential oils, friends and family, playing golf, and traveling.
Cindy lost her husband Mike to a sudden heart attack in July of 2011. Her husband was 60 years old, self-employed and, due to several life challenges, they were not prepared for retirement let alone a sudden loss of income due to death. Cindy found Modern Widows Club online through Facebook and their website in early August 2011. She was so drawn to the positive role modeling in how to walk this journey that she traveled to Florida to meet Modern Widows Club founder Carolyn Moor, and in January 2013 began the Seattle Community. Because of the impact from her husband’s death, Cindy has found her passion in serving widows by leading in the Seattle area. She has two grown daughters and married Robert in April 2015. They have traveled to Kenya and met Roseline Orwa with the widows and orphans Rona Foundation. Cindy was humbled and honored to speak to three widows groups, and she and Robert assisted with building a home for a widow and visited the orphanage. Moving forward and reaching back to honor the life and love of her husband Mike.
Thank you so much for checking in and for all your help!
Because of your amazing hard work finding resources for my kids and me, we had a nice Christmas. Thank you so much! There was a church that delivered gift cards and another that came through with food and gifts. It was so heartwarming!
I am also working with a nonprofit that I reached through your resources, Safe Families For Children. The organization found a volunteer mechanic to repair my car and assisted me with a security deposit for an apartment as soon as possible. I am so grateful!
Thank you! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Things are all still in the process for me, but I have so much more hope than I did before— MWC Wister® (Widow + Sister
