Leyla has been traveling her whole life and took her first solo trip at 15. She hasn’t really stopped for long since. She launched Women on the Road more than a decade ago and is one of the pioneers of women’s online travel. Her goal is to empower women by helping them conquer their fears, step out of their comfort zone, and discover just how amazing the world out there can be when you’re seeing it on your own. Her site is bursting with endless resources to help women plan their perfect trip -- from reviews to checklists to roadmaps and destination guides. Her Facebook community is extremely active and gives her much joy.
