So you're falling for a female traveller?

I think unless you've actually experienced travelling, and I don't mean flying to Spain and sitting on a beach for a week, it's almost impossible to know how much it changes you. I've met so many travellers, and compared to non-travellers, their outlook on life (in my experience) is often quite different.

I think sometimes, a female traveller can appear quite intimidating; I know I've certainly been intimidated by some. But actually, those that did intimidate me turned out to be some of the most amazing and coolest people I've ever met.

So here's a short list of what I think you can expect from that kinda girl..

She's confident. Travelling taught her not to care about what others think so 9 times out of 10, she'll do whatever she wants. She's not afraid to be herself even her actions don't fit the 'social norm'.

She isn't high maintenance. As much as she loves having her hair and make up perfect, she can quite happily not wear anything on her face and leave her au natural. Carrying straighteners and a case of make up around isn't practical, so embracing the natural look has to be done and that's more than okay!

She's spontaneous. One minute she'll be saving for a house, the next she's booked a trip to Africa. It's cool, life is too short to not take every opportunity.

She's independent. As much as she loves the company of others, she also loves her own company too. That's not to say she doesn't want you in her life, it just means she's satisfied and content with herself too.

She's adventurous. Elephant trekking, waterfall swimming, bungee jumping, sleeping under the stars etc.. are all part of her vocabulary.

She's strong willed. Being away from home for months means she's strong willed, determined and knows how to move on in life. She knows how to take care of herself, knows how to forgive and can love you extremely deeply. However, if you f*ck her over, chances are she'll move on pretty damn fast.

I actually feel sorry for my friends who haven't travelled. Yes, they have houses and good careers - but they really haven't seen the world the way we have!
