5 women that inspire me to travel alone
Travel far enough you meet yourself
“No one travels alone when they have the whole world to meet.”
I am a woman who loves to travel and see new places, I like to immerse myself in the culture of the places I visit and enjoy their unique beauty and diversity.
My travel companion has always been my sister; together we have traveled to many of our bucket list destinations. Traveling with her is a synonym of fun and adventure.
Although I have always planned my trips with her, lately I have been wondering how would it be to travel by myself. I have heard stories of different women that have had the chance of visiting on their own, following the path that they have set for themselves.
In the beginning, it sounded a bit scary, the idea of being in an unknown place seemed rather scary than funny. After doing some online research, I found a bunch of stories of women that are currently traveling the world on their own. I never thought there would be many brave women defying stereotypes.
All of this women have inspired me to overcome the fear of being alone, and I want to share with you the story of this five ladies that I hope also encourage you to take your bags and buy that airplane ticket to the place you have dreamt with for so long.

Allways following your intuition.
