Firstly, Thank you for reading my Blog.
I started sharing my travel photos and my favorite inspirational quotes just over 1 year ago (Some posts are back dated to recognize my departure from my 9 to 5 structural engineering job). It’s been a lot of fun!! I’ve had to learn about WordPress, Tumblr, Twitter, tags, time management (I thought I dealt with it I joined Facebook but there are just so many pretty pictures and kind words here!!)… 😉
I’ve created Single Woman Travels! in hope to share my love of traveling to everyone; especially to the women out there who have always wanted to travel but have stalled for one reason or another. I’ve been there too… “I’ll wait for my friend to save up enough money”, “I’ll wait for my boyfriend to get time off work”, “I have to save up”, “I’m scared because I don’t speak the local language”, “I don’t know anyone there”… so many excuses, so many fears…
Well when my 5 year relationship ended in 2004 and after spending about 8 months picking up pieces of my heart, I got on an airplane by myself, flew to Paris and got myself a short stay in a studio apartment. After that, I’ve been to an additional 33 countries on my own and meeting lots of people along the way. Within this time, I’ve learned a lot about myself and there’s been plenty of surprises and adventures along the way.
I hope through my blog, you will build up your courage and be motivated to go see this great world of ours, through your own eyes. Touch those monuments and sculptures, walk into all those gorgeous buildings you’ve seen in photos, on the TV or your computer screen – step out of your comfort zone.
Sending you Love, Light, Joy.
