Part 2 is all about the little things that will help you travel in the best way and be prepared for unwanted situations that could occur.
Dear Girls on Travel, This will be the start of a series of blog articles about the best ways to remain safe during solo travel. Those tips are aimed to give you the best tools to travel in the safest way possible and make you think and reflect on situations. They are based on my own solo experience around the world.
Dear Girls on Travel, Friday the 8th is international women day and I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you what a girl on travel is.
Dear Girls on Travel, One of the reasons group travel puts you off is the fact that you need to share a room with someone you don’t know. Reasons for this might be that you are not comfortable, or you are not a heavy sleeper and don’t want the snoring, or you need your privacy or own space. You might have your own arguments, but let me demonstrate what you will actually miss on!
It seems that often, more sometimes than the fear of going alone, you worry about the group you will get to spend your holiday with. What if I do not get along and end-up alone? What if the trip becomes a nightmare? What if I want some “me” time? What if I want different activities? What if I don’t want to go to the restaurant every day?
Dear Girls on Travel, Are you tired of hearing you need to pay a single supplement? Not even sure what it is? Or feel frustrated having to pay extra just because you want to travel solo? If so check-out our tips below on how to avoid single supplement.
Dear Girls on Travel, Are you wondering whether group travel tours is actually for you? Are you normally more of a solo traveller and unsure whether a group could be a nice option? Or you have never experienced solo or group travel but you are now considering it? Read on to find more whether group travel tours would be the right choice for you.
Dear Girls on Travel, Did you know any of these travelling facts?
Did you know that so many websites and apps are actually trying to make your travelling life a lot easier? Some tools are really well done and can save you so much time and money.
Group travel is often associated with the words “fun”, “young”, “70+” and “single”. Think about it and imagine for one moment that your best friend is telling you “you know what, I decided to go on a group travel!”.
WIN a Lake District Break and join a group of women for a great weekend!
Did you know Ghent used to be the largest medieval city? Now, this small city of just under 250,000 inhabitants is called medieval Manhattan with its 3 Unesco World Heritage monuments.
Annecy, the Venice of the Alps is an absolute stunner, the jewel of the Alps!
Dear Girls on Travel, If you are into hikes, nature, incredible landscape, hilltops and glittering lakes search no more, the Lake District is just the perfect place to go and spend a weekend break. The Lakeland as commonly known there is the UK’s most popular national park and it is easy to understand why. Located in North-West England in Cumbria, it is also not far from the Scottish border. The visiting possibilities are endless and can be overwhelming but one thing is sure, you will embrace it’s beauty, whether it’s with the wellies or the sandals.
Some of you might be wondering “why women only trips”? “Why not mixed travel groups if it is anyways to be with other people”? “Why should I consider this”? Or even “I am not a feminist and don’t mind going on trips with guys”.
Talking to some people who went on group travels with various companies, the outcome of those wasn’t as positive as I had expected.
I often get asked if it is not dangerous to go as a solo woman to South American countries. As I travelled through a few of them I wanted to share my experience with you.
At the time I was in my early twenties and decided to go to central and South America. I remember the furious reaction of my father and different reactions of my friends, which basically meant: are you crazy?! I do not believe crazy is one of my character traits and this travel was deeply researched as well. There is not one day I regret going there and I am dreaming of going back.
Today I wanted to share with you one of my favourite countries : Colombia. Of all the travels I did I feel Colombia is the country that has moved me the most. What I often hear from travellers going through South America is that Colombia combines the best of different countries. This stunning place enables you to discover incredible nature, two oceans, remarkable cities, stunning walks and above all amazing people. Columbians are warm and happy people and make your stay feel like you never want to leave again. I therefore wanted to share my highlights with you.
