13 Doubts All Solo Female Travelers Are So Tired Of Answering

Remember when you couldnt discount how badly you wanted to travel anymore? You asked your friends, lover, fucking cousin, and your best friend from third point to go with you until ultimately you realized that if you wanted to travel youd have to go it alone. Perhaps those around you expressed concern or tried to talk you out of it, because the idea of a girl traveling on her own still, unfortunately, outlines some skepticism.

Yet thankfully, solo female expedition isnt as taboo as it used to be .

Were researching “the worlds” in greater numbers year by time, defying the status quo and attesting , not only to others but likewise to ourselves, just how strong and independent we can be.

Unfortunately, there are still those inane questions that we solo female travelers always get asked, that I want to answer once and for all, so we can all move onto more interesting topics of conference, alright?

Here are 13 inquiries just about every solo girl traveler has listened 😛 TAGEND

1. Why is a quite girl like you still single?

Because so many conversations with would-be suitors go like this

2. Dont you have any friends who want to travel with you?

I do, but they have their own lives chasing advanced degrees, climbing the corporate ladder, and saving lives in infirmaries. We each have our own dreams and our working life itineraries and simply because theirs keeps them at home doesnt mean that Im friendless.

3. Your husband/ boyfriend/ leader gives you travel by yourself?

Ahem , nothing lets me do anything. I clear my own decisions, like the freethinking adult that I am.

But depending on how aggressively and suggestively youre expecting, he just might be around the area, 300 pounds of solid muscle and ready to pummel you. Im on my course to meet up with him now.

4. Arent you lonely?

Each time I walk into a hostel I make five new friends, each time a neighbourhood takes interest in why Im alone, I get invited to their own families dinner or a cool neighbourhood ceremony. I have reached more pals than I can count plainly because Im perpetually assembling new people everywhere I become, and while there are some lonely occasions, they are few and far between.

5. Isnt it dangerous for the status of women to movement on her own?

Enough with that bologna! These daytimes I spend more time in countries that are statically safer by a long-shot than the USA, so by leaving residence I is in fact declining the chances of something ominou happening.

6. Really? Youre not worried about being victimized because youre by yourself?

When Im on my own, Im hyperaware. My intuition goes sharper, and neighbourhoods are more likely to want to take me in or look after me than to take advantage of me. Thankfully, I find that being a girl traveling solo is actually helpful rather than a disadvantage.

7. Dont you get bored?

Its hopeless to get bored with constantly changing landscapes, and new bouquets, visions, and conferences on the daily.

8. How do you stay safe?

I simply do the same stuffs Ive been doing all my life to remain safe and alive I say no if different situations acquires me uncomfortable, dont walk around alone at night, made to ensure that I familiarize myself with the safety statu in the cities I visit by questioning public service employees at my accommodation what to be aware of and what to avoid, and I dress according to the customs of the two countries Im in to eschew unwanted attention.

9. Dont you get homesick?

Yeah, I do. Thats a tough one, and the longer Im away from residence the more I miss those who have always loved and reinforced me. The great situation is I can always go home, and I can make it national priorities happening there for the important milestones in my friends and familys lives. We all put in more effort to see one another when there are fewer opportunities and thats an surprising benefit of traveling.

10. How are you able administer living out of a backpack? Id get so tired of the lack of wardrobe variety.

Honestly when youre having the excursion of a lifetime what you are wearing and how great your “hairs-breadth” and makeup ogle promptly fade in matters of importance. Its about the undertaking first and foremost, and thats an more beautiful thing.

11. Do you have boyfriends in every country? You must get around.

That would require space too much juggling and I dont have the power! I get the opportunity to meet road more humanities than I would at home, true-blue, but that doesnt entail I share my bed with all of them. And even if I did, so what? Madams have every right to experiment, too.

12. How do you afford to traveling like that?

Hard work, relinquishes, and savings, its actually that simple-minded!

13. When are you going to settle down, found a family, and stop journey?

This is my favorite question of all, because every woman should want to get married and have children, right? I dont learn ending down as the end point for my life. Perhaps Ill get married and have children and maybe I wont. I do know that right now, what fulfills me is wandering and writing and if someday that doesnt do it for me anymore, Ill figure something else out.

Dont worry too much about me, Ive gotten to know myself better than I ever did before I traveled alone. Ive become so much better at problem-solving, negotiating, and aria in with my inner voice and motivations. When the time is right to choose another route, Ill know, but its not right now, and it wont be tomorrow, either.
