Recently, I traveled with my BFFs and it was a blast; challenging at times, mind you, but a lot of fun. Traveling with my girlfriends is great way for me to get some much needed time away for my routine; talking about things you can only talk about with “the girls”. If you’ve never traveled this way before or it’s been a long time, maybe you should think about taking that girlfriends’ getaway.
To learn if it’s right for you, here’s a great post from the TriWivesClub, Girlfriend Travel: Why It’s So Special…
For a long time now, I have been taking an annual trip with at least one, but usually two plus girlfriends. I think it started when my close friend moved back to the UK and it was the only way we could always assure seeing each other. But, that said, I even did this during my first marriage.
We try to vary the trips between the States and Europe, but since I love England so much, I usually want to head her way. It does help that we’re all pretty compatible. We like the same locations; have similar travel attitudes; like both active vacations and chilling at the spa; and prefer our travel more on the luxury end. The trips are generally for a 3-4 day week-end, which is just the right amount of time to be away from our families and to not get on each other’s nerves!
