Given our age and financial incapability, most of our travels have been with our families. There are things we couldn’t do like walk into MORE stores (HAHAHA!) and go see some more places. Don’t get me wrong. It is pleasurable to travel with your father and brothers because they provide you with safety but more often than not, you hold back a little from doing more walking and exploring because they would complain about sore feet from walking and exhaustion. And the thing I hate the most…they call it a day earlier than usual.
Travelling solo is an option for those who want to discover more of themselves as they discover the world but safety is an important factor as well when considering a trip. Travelling is more fun when you are with people whom you share your interest and excitement with and are more likely thinking the same as what you are thinking.
As girls’ getaway travelling together gets more popular nowadays, I think doing a multi-generation women’s travel should be considered more. Mother – daughter travel is ordinary and frequent but how about grandmothers and granddaughters, aunts and nieces travelling together? I think it is important to travel with women of different age ranges because your perspectives in life are different so you learn from each other. Plus, wouldn't it be nice to travel with women who play such an important role in your life aside from your Mom?

Travelling in different places helps the older generation to see how competent and ready the younger ones are in the world and the younger generation would see that the elders do not always live by the rules, that sometimes for fun, they break them too!
My Mediterranean cruise experience was just superb because I got to travel with my Mama and Aunt Minnette. The group we travelled with keeps on noticing how we catch each others’ back all throughout the trip. Role reversal is applicable in this kind of travelling and having to experience it is just priceless. Experiences like Aunt does the paying, Mama does the map reading while I do the price haggling with cabs or souvenir vendors. Also, conversations we had were also more intimate considering no men were around. Freedom to talk about fashion, shopping, food and oh God forbid, cute men without the men to tease us or regulate us is just endless and unimaginable!
|Shopping, shopping and more shopping!|
I think the different life experiences each one of us has been through is important because we enlighten and change perspectives of each other in a manner where we did it unconsciously because we were all out there in a place in this planet we were all unfamiliar with.
|Indeed, it is God's blessing to have this opportunity!|
