What’s a Travel Hag?

A travel hag is a wise woman with goddess attributes who loves to travel. The traditional Celtic meaning of the word was wise woman or goddess. Hags were revered and powerful. They were healers, mystics and leaders in thinking. Once Christianity took hold, hags were demonized and the word “hag” took on a similar connotation.  We’re embracing the old meaning

A hag is confident in her own skin and doesn’t let popular culture dictate her personal concept of beauty. The beauty of a true hag shines and overpowers any perceived physical imperfection.

So if you are or are aspiring to be a wise, confident, powerful woman who loves to travel – then you are a travel hag.
