I’m travelling through Jordan with the new bespoke travel company Millie, whose goal is to create mindful travel experiences for women and foster meaningful relationships to people and places, to history and culture. Led by Chelsea Brown, the Toronto-born founder of Millie, and her hand-picked local guides, the members of our small, all-female cast are a sort of modern-day caravan moving through the country. We’ve each come on our own – without spouses, kids, friends from home – for the opportunity to forge friendships with or find solitude among strangers. And to step outside our comfort zones.
