There’s a special place in my heart for a good quote. No matter what mood I’m in, hearing or reading an uplifting saying can turn my attitude around.
These ‘ travel quotes to inspire women ‘ have all hit me with a certain excitement to just do something.
Inspirational quotes bring our lives into perspective. They shift the way we think about our reality. A really great quote might even motivate us to change something about our lives.
Traveling the world – especially as a woman – can sometimes feel isolating or uncomfortable. People often ask me if I feel scared or alone. They tell me how brave I am for traveling all by myself at 21 years old. In response to these statements I usually smile or laugh awkwardly.
The bigger issue here is that our world views that a woman taking ownership and responsibility of her own travels is more challenging than it is for men.
Solo male travelers are first asked questions about where they’ve been or what they’ve thought about different cultures. Women are told they are brave and asked when they have felt unsafe.
We must create a sisterhood for women to feel comfortable being on their own. And in all honesty, we can’t empower others without first empowering ourselves.
Empower yourself to travel alone and be proud of it. And know that you aren’t actually alone – there are many other ladies out there that have done the exact same thing. Lots of women have experienced the same struggles, awesome independence, and gratitude for our wonderful world seen through traveling. Oh, what a wonderful world!
