A Solo Travel Girl Is: Bold, Brave and Beautiful
From A to Z, what are the characteristics of a solo travel girl? Without a doubt she’s bold, brave and beautiful!
Bold – When a solo travel girl is bold, some may confuse her as being the other “b” word ending with “itch.” Understand, she’s almost always fearless and all about seeking new experiences pushing her personal comfort zone (as I did in Japan). Also, she’s not afraid to protect her interests. If something isn’t right with her hotel room, she’ll nicely ask to have it corrected. If she’s receiving unwanted advances from the older man sitting next to her on an eight-hour overseas flight, she’ll politely yet firmly shut him down.
Brave – Standing tall and showing courage, she’ll calmly and quickly find her way out of the dark alley she accidentally wandered down. In addition to protect her interests, she’s not afraid to do what’s right for the good of the whole. When dining, the solo travel girl steps up to try the most unusual entree on the menu, even if it’s a feta cheese omelet with sardines.
Beautiful – Well, duh! This one is a given. Her beauty isn’t defined by the cover of Cosmopolitan or Vogue but by her sense of adventure, personal style and confidence. She doesn’t need to be a size 0 to rock a swimsuit and has been known to reapply her red lipstick while hiking the Rocky Mountain backcountry.
And since we’re on the topic of “B” be sure to visit my friend Barbara’s blog, Start the Evolution Without Me, to read about her entertaining adventures of retiring in Mexico. She’s definitely brave especially having just had surgery to remove breast cancer.
I’d also like to introduce to another “B” and that’s Blue Yonder Design. If you’re looking to add personality to your blog or a company to host it and take care of all the technical stuff so you can focus on blogging and marketing, Jen at BYD is your gal! She’s been with me since Day 1 of this blog and she’s always there when I need her.
