It seems that, every day, we hear stories about the dangers women face when travelling alone. Whether it’s cultural realities, freak accidents or urban legends, these tales can do a great job of making us think twice before strapping on a backpack and heading fearlessly into the world. But with a little bit of forward-thinking and a touch of common sense, travelling by yourself as a woman can be both safe and an immensely rewarding experience. When travelling alone, you can do whatever you want. And, maybe most importantly, you can chose what not to do. Not into temples? Skip ’em. Want to eat two breakfasts? Do it. More shopping? Fine.
So often when travelling, we find ourselves strolling through art galleries, visiting an endless stream of churches or tramping through swamps when we would never do these things at home. And while trying new things is an important part of travelling, it’s also easy to spend your holiday doing things you don’t actually enjoy because you feel like you should.
But travelling alone flips all those pre-conceived notions about travel on their heads. When you wake up in the morning, you ask yourself, “What do I want to do today?” If the answer is to sit in a beautiful park and read, do it. Likewise, if it’s to climb every mountain in the region, you can do that, too.
You are empowered to do whatever you want, because this is your time. You make the rules. No one else.
It's empowering, thrilling and sometimes a bit lonely—but still worth it. ..................................... www.tgh-together.com
