Why every girl must experience traveling solo!
Updated: Apr 5
Traveling is food for the soul and travelling alone is like eating organic whole foods : pure, raw and enriching. It is an experience that every person should get at least once to satiate that hunger for ladies only travel.
Like every other thing, traveling comes in its own eclectic flavors and to be a true traveler you have to experience every one of it. It is always fun to travel in family groups or with your friends but traveling solo has perks of its own and to experience it, pack your bags and wander!
Breaking the norms
We assume that to travel we need a whole lot of people but in reality, a backpack, a pair of good shoes and an appetite to explore can take you everywhere and beyond! Girls, traveling solo is empowering. We believe you must experience it!
No more ghosts of Goa trip
Admit it, at some point of time we all planned that Goa trip which eventually died a slow death at the hands of people who cancelled at the last moment. The biggest advantage of going solo is that your plan relies only on one person, yourself! Believe us girls, travelling solo is not uncommon anymore!
LIVE your destination, don't just be there
We often tend to be more aware of our surroundings when we are traveling solo because there is no one to distract us. So you get to experience everything with a 10x zoom & independent perspective. Basking in every little detail which otherwise would go unnoticed. So you truly live your destination instead of just being there.
Traveling solo gives you the freedom to make your own decisions. You can take your time and follow your heart instead of rushing around to finish a checklist of places to visit. Instead of dragging yourself around with your family because somebody wants to see a boring place doesn't mean you are obliged to, because now you decide where to go, when to go, how long to stay there for! Talk about Women empowerment!
Let the interactions going!
When you are by yourself, it becomes a necessity to interact with local people rather than a choice. And it opens up a new dimension altogether. You learn about different cultures, different people and their stories. Living through such an experience makes you more approachable and more open to new people in your everyday life. So going solo doesn't necessarily means being alone all the time.
P.S. You may end up meeting some really cute guys who are not talking to you to get into your pants for a change.
Easy on the pocket
You don't have to drill a hole in your pocket in order to travel. Going on a solo trip certainly goes light on your bank balance. You are no longer expected to pay for things which do not interest you, you might not like to spend a lot on a hotel where you are only going to sleep. Wander Womaniya can help you with recommendations for safe & secure accommodations wherever you want to go!
Do it for the thrill!
The idea of a solo trip maybe daunting at first. But there is nothing more exciting than facing your fears head on! And once you step out, you realize it isn't as hard as you imagined it to be. Agreed there can be safety & security concerns because well we Indians have failed to teach the meaning of consent to the ever rising male population. But if that's your concern you can plan to travel with an all women travel group.
Experience is the key
When you travel, you never come back empty handed. There is always tons and tons of new experiences packed with a dash of memories that now belong to you exclusively for a lifetime. And at the end of the day, these are the things that matter the most in life. This is what you would remember till the end of your days. Since your experiences make you YOU!
