Traveling is a thrilling experience for someone having an inevitable wanderlust to see the many different places of the world.
For such people, traveling is important for various reasons, one of which is exploring cultures belonging to different ethnicities for broadening the horizons of their mind.
Many people like to travel with their friends or family, while there are some people who want to enjoy this experience alone. According to recent research, women like solo traveling more than men, and there are different factors that support this fact.
Times Have Changed
In the past, the most important job assigned to a woman was to get married, have children, cook meals for the entire family, and maintain the household. Now, this trend is rapidly changing. The woman of today wants to find her passion.
She wants liberty to explore different cultures and ways of life, and adopt the one which she would like to follow. Female travelers have always been prominent in history as well but, because of limitations posed by the means of traveling, their male counterparts overshadowed them in various ways.
Change in Family values
Women are now achieving certain traditional milestones at much later years compared to the past. According to statistics, women are having their first child around the age of 26 (on average) in America, while in San Francisco women prefer to have their first child around the age of 31. Instead of having children, an increasing number of women are focusing on building up their careers.
Change in Trends of Social Media
People today like to become famous through social media posts. Instagram particularly has changed the way people see the world.
Posting candid photos on Instagram that are taken in front of beautiful sceneries while wearing stylish outfits has become a trend in the recent past. These days, women around the world have developed a passion for doing things which highlight their strengths and also want to show their achievements to the world.
Women And Men Have Different Priorities Of Travelling
For most men, traveling is an activity which they like to do as a group. They like to travel with their friends and very rarely they will plan for their travels, preferring spontaneous trips, unlike most women who usually spend hours in planning.
Women like to travel for various reasons, the most important of which is self-improvement and growth. In the past, whenever life used to become difficult for women, they would try to get through such hard times through love and prayers. But now, many women find the answers to their difficulties through traveling.
Travelling gives them an opportunity to explore themselves and finding their passion. It also has health benefits as well, particularly for their mental health.
Whatever the factors may be, the woman today is more courageous than before and, for this reason, she likes to travel alone. Tourism industries around the world have also provided enough support to solo female travelers to make their experience more comfortable.
