We women, make 80% of Travel decisions. Yeah, You heard me Right! “80%”. That’s everything. Except maybe the convenient date of travel that always comes from men, when we hold may be equal or more responsibilities when it comes to being busy at work or home. So why don’t we make those travel decisions for ourselves? When men feel stressed out or unmoored, we always hear them say, they want a BREAK. A trip to maybe Bangkok or Vegas or a town that serves the best beer or the city with the best party scene. So why don’t we pay attention to our stress?
In our everyday lives, we are obligated to give out so much of ourselves, trying hard to maintain that work-life balance, juggling at the same time with kids and companions and husbands only to find that our allocated wedge of responsibilities is so much larger than anyone else we ought to share it with.
Escaping this prosaic everyday life at least once a year is the biggest gift you can give yourself and what is even more important is that, it’s not a shoudn’t be holiday event where you have furthermore responsibilities, which definitely is the case when travelling with family. (keep that for another part of the year) So travel with your best friend or friends.. the girl gang, that would make you laugh your lungs out, the wild intrepid group of people who would make you forget everything else.
Being surrounded by friends helps you leave behind all worries on the things that we constantly obsess about, day-in and day-out helping us reach a stage where there really is no status – single, engaged, married, mothers, young or not is the least of anyone’s concern. We constantly hear people saying “WOMEN, TALK”. It’s not just about the gossip, but it also about sharing those mutually comfortable things. Whether it’s the deepest dirtiest secret or a something that’s bothering us or something to confess that we are an utter failure at, just overflowing emotions, we need our girlfriends to ramble it out to, because men don’t do confession time… You’d just hear the word Whining… Let’s Agree upon one thing, to any man his problems are bigger than ours. And of course there is more you can share than just your emotions, Dresses, strappy heels, Purses there is an endless number of things you can try out that aren’t yours.
So plan out the trip with no guilt or fear, no pre-thoughts, no compulsion to look good, or the urge to look exquisite, forget the make-up, forget the watches and time constraints, diaper bags or carpools, the jewellery and dress codes, only think about all the unbelievable fun that awaits you making you forget everything else. Because we women deserve to reach that state of oblivion, to unload that burden and get a shoulder rub, to be 16 and giggling again. The ultimate Utopia is real and it awaits you. You just need are your Flights tickets to get there.
