A Solo Travel Girl Is: Motivated, Magnetic and Mannerly
From A to Z, what are the characteristics of a solo travel girl? This magnificent muchacha is motivated, magnetic and mannerly!
Motivated – Why did the solo travel girl fly across the world? To see what was on the other side. Traveling alone takes gumption and motivation and without a doubt this gallivanting lass is motivated! She’s learned she can’t always depend on others to join her on jaunts and journeys and decided if she doesn’t do it alone, she may never have the opportunity to do it again. A potential missed experience to check off her bucket list is this gal’s motivation.
Magnetic – When around, no one is certain why they are drawn to her but they have this inkling they need to be near her. This gallivanting lass has a magnetic pull stronger than the North Pole attracting an eclectic group of friends and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
Mannerly – She knows not to stick her chopsticks in a bowl of rice; when to shake hands, bow or kiss; and which colors to avoid when giving gifts (purple and black are for mourning in Brazil; all white gift-wrap should be avoided in Japan as white signifies death). When traveling abroad she learns her “please” and “thank you” in each respective language and kindly leaves a note for her generous hosts.
She’s learned what they say is true, you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Indeed, Miss Manners would be proud.
