That's what we are told and some of us believe...right? Let me tell you that it's a lie and why you should definitely experience travelling with your girl friends :
1.)People are friendly & Sweet – One of the things a girl gang should be really afraid of , friendly and sweet people (My experience of Italy and Spain). You can ask anyone for directions, nice places to eat or anything that you would want to know. Best part was there were few people who didn’t even understand English yet they tried to help us (and succeeded)
2.)People Don’t Stare at you - Unlike in our own country, people don’t stare at you. So just like how it should be - You are no one else’s business, you can wear whatever you feel like without thinking much. So ladies carry your favorite pair of shorts, skirts or dresses - you can totally focus on what you have gone there for “To have Fun”.
3.)You Feel Safe - Well before leaving for Europe , I had read various articles on women safety. Most of articles talked about don’t give your camera to strangers, don’t roam around showing a map therefore showing that you are a tourist etc. etc. I am sure people would have written all these articles based on their own experiences but I would say don’t believe everything you read. Most of our pictures were clicked by random people, we roamed around till late in the night and we did take taxis at night . Don’t compromise on fun just because you have read about these places being not so safe. Just be careful, trust your instincts & stay together.
4.)Women are from Venus – I am sure you all would agree that a Guy’s brain works different than a Girl’s brain. Guys might want to go to bars and drink themselves to death, you can rather go sightseeing with your girls and shop for as long as you would want. Don’t listen to you Moms when they say get married and then travel, travelling with your girlfriends is a different experience all together as you will understand each other like no one else will. (we can hardly wait to go for our next trip and we did leave our husbands and boyfriends behind!)
5.)It teaches you to Trust others – Our generation is taught to not trust people due to things happening around me but travelling as a Girl gang does just the opposite. You meet good people (and few bad may be) but it does make you believe in goodness of people once again.
And the biggest reason to go to Europe is to see the beauty of cities – those canals, beautiful sunsets, impressive architecture, cobbled streets, mesmerizing art and so many more things.
So for a change, ditch your boyfriends and husbands and make plan with your girlfriends. You would never regret it and trust me you will have a time of your life!
