Since the time I stepped out for my first solo trip, I have always found myself aching with wanderlust. You can say that my favorite pastime is to read about new places (often end up checking flight fares too!) and I take the chance of exploring without a second thought. Embarking on countless journeys has been cathartic and empowering for me, and I love to wake up in new cities, looking forward to meeting new people & experiencing something new, each day!
It would be really difficult to explain to many out there, that traveling, for me, is a way to reconnect with my heart and soul. It’s as much an internal process as it is an external one. In today’s date, when Instagram is taking over the world, I know hundreds of amazing women out there, who are not just courageous to break free from the pre-defined mundane norms, but are creating their own identities by exploring the unknown corners of the world.
So here’s to all men out there – from having wondrous and meaningful conversations to experiencing a ton of breathtaking escapades, there are surely a lot of perks of dating a girl who loves to travel and explore the world. And if you’re still searching for that perfect partner, here’s why a woman with ‘wanderlust’ will make you fall in love with her!
1. Life would never get boring with a girl who loves to travel.
Just when you think that your life is becoming hectic or heading towards the mundane, she will come up with a trip that will create magic and a spark of excitement in your life. She will always be ready to plan a trip, and even have the budget and flights sorted out. She is, then, going to take you to places where you’ve never been to, allowing you to discover a lot of new things that could add an extra element of fun and excitement in your life.
A girl who loves to travel also recognizes every opportunity for adventure, excitement, and fun. She is always keen to try something new and unusual with you. From thrilling game drives in Kenya to skydiving in Dubai or scuba diving in Thailand, she has a sense of adventure that is practically limitless, and you’ll never get bored with her!
2. She is absolutely fun-loving and spontaneous!
Travelers, in general, are always up for a blast! And there would possibly never come a time when she’ll not be up for something crazy! A woman bitten by the travel bug would rarely say NO to things that are new and fun, which makes her a perfect fit to a dude who’s into a good-time and spontaneous relationship. While you’d have developed a cliched idea thinking that girls are just about shopping expensive things, a travel-lover would set your expectations and make you love her even more, as she spends on her experiences than on material goods!
3. A girl who loves to travel is adaptable and easy-going.
The one who travels knows that the journeys aren’t always a cakewalk! While the society thinks of ‘traveling’ as leisure, only travelers know what it takes to traverse on unknown trails. After many missed flights, bad restrooms, bad street food, lost luggage, unpleasant situations, and wrong turns, you would know that she is adaptable and easy-going, and no matter what, she would never crib about things! She is ready for any bumps on the road metaphorically and litreally. When life throws a curveball at her, she smacks it right out of the ballpark with flying colors!
4. There would never be a dull conversation as she’ll be witty, intelligent and enthralling!
Whether she’s urging you to take an exciting adventure for the coming weekend or sharing stories of her epic backpacking escapades, she will always have a way to enthrall you! Plus, she’s got the wit and charm to make your conversations more fun and engaging, always! I’m not exactly bragging about myself, but a girl who loves to travel is often intelligent, curious and inquisitive! After all, traveling is one of the best forms of education and once we hit the road, every new day brings some new lessons. With enthusiasm and passion, we can talk for a number of hours about our backpacking trips and adventures abroad.
Well, it’ll even be amazing if you meet a girl on the roads and fall in love! Sounds pretty Bollywood-ish, I know, but then I and my partner met during a trek in the Himalayas & since then, we have been hopping around the world, together!
5. She is not at all materialistic, and super easy to please!
The one who loves living out of a backpack isn’t much into tangible gifts! A girl who loves to travel certainly knows how to appreciate the small and simple things in life. She loves to listen to the chirping birds near your window, or watch the waves breaking at the shore for hours. She wouldn’t ask you to book a 5-star resort while traveling, as she knows how to enjoy camping under the stars! She even goes nuts over the incense sticks that will remind her of the smells in Pondicherry, or the beautiful prayer flags that bring back memories of her unforgettable memories from Spiti.
6. Her journeys have inspired her to be a good problem solver!
It is inevitable for travelers, especially the ones who spend a few months on the road, to run into a few problems. And while most people would freak out when they miss a bus or lose a piece of luggage, your travel girl has the ability to think in a rational way and find solutions to solve the problem. With her as your dating partner, you will always have a reliable person who’ll offer a great piece of advice, every time you’re dealing with a major problem in your life. Not to mention, she’ll always deal rationally with any relationship issues that might pop up between the both of you!
7. She’s more open-minded than the others!
Traveling, in a lot of different ways, lets people discover themselves. And of course, a girl who travels a lot knows herself more than anybody else. That makes her extremely open-minded and less judgemental. The more she immerses herself into other cultures, the more open-minded she becomes. Instead of looking at other places and people as weird, she simply learns to view them as something different. So, if you’re with a travel junkie, you don’t have to worry about her judging you, and the other unusual things that you want to try. With her, you can be as weird and idiosyncratic as you can be, and she’ll enjoy your company that way!
8. She wouldn’t be possessive and clingy!
If you’ve always dreaded a relationship thinking that your privacy would be at stake, then date a traveler! She isn’t the kind of girl who wants to know everything you do. She wants to be with you because she likes you and it is fun, and not because she needs to be with you at all times! In a lonely world, where most of the people are trying to find a shoulder for dependence, a travel junkie is fiercely independent and she knows to respect your space too.
9. She’d make you feel special in the most unnatural ways!
You might not accompany her for all the trips that she wants to go for, but know that she’ll surely miss you, even if she doesn’t talk about it. You may not hear her voice for days, but she will write to you about her experiences, in letters and postcards! You gotta trust that every stranger she meets, she never forgets to mention you! She thinks about you every time she goes to sleep, and she tells all the backpackers in her hostel dorm on how great and wonderful you are! Moreover, she will do her best to find a place with WiFi, so she can have a video chat with you and tell you about all the crazy experiences!
So all eligible bachelors out there – get over swiping on Tinder and step out on some unplanned trips! You never know, you might just meet the love of your life on the roads.
