This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #BeBoldForChange. From challenging bias and equality to to hailing women’s achievements, each one of us can be a vehicle for change. This post is a reflection of a trip I made to Philadelphia in 2014. It was the hallmark event of a series of solo trips that I made.
Trekking alone allows me to push the boundaries of traveling fearlessly. Gone is the ability to depend on a fellow traveler, be influenced by others and doubtful of my own decisions, and in its place is independence, strength, and resilience.
Whether you’re staying local or aiming for a multi-country journey, I hope that your travels take you to places of self-discovery that celebrate your triumphs, forges advancements, and fosters growth.
