Every woman should go on a solo trip to understand herself better
Traveling alone has always been a liberating experience that further promotes self-discovery, stretches your comfort zone and feeds all your passions. You have the freedom to now create your own schedule, be social when you want and relax when you want. Traveling alone opens you up to meeting new people and forming stronger connections than you would if you were with a travel mate. Here are reasons why every woman needs a solo trip.
Whether it is by choice or because your schedule does not line up with someone else, solo travel is an experience which every woman should experience at least once in her life.
Here are five places which you should soon head up for your next solo experience:
1. Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Surrounded by some really beautiful architecture, world-famous museums and canals, Amsterdam is a safe, vibrant and friendly city with so much to explore on your own, you will never feel bored.
If you are not on a city walking tour, do as locals do and hop on a bike while you further explore some history at the Van Gogh museum and the Anne Frank House. Explore the city by water on a canal cruise, smell some beautiful tulips at the Amsterdam Tulip museum, and hit the city center shops of Kalverstraat and the Leidsestraat for some retail therapy.
2. Goa, India
The lace is warm all year, with the palm trees dotting its 30 beaches; Goa receives over two million visitors annually.

3. Maui, Hawaii
Bring the spirit of Aloha into your life and let the Maui capture your heart with its beautiful coastline and abundance of colorful flowers.
