We all dream about travelling the world, meeting new people, experiencing as much as we can, and living our lives to the fullest and freest.
The dream of travelling the world on our own helps us to get to know ourselves better, strive on our own, increase our confidence, and create a new meaningful story to tell in the future. Sometimes, such a challenging but also a perfect idea can be hard to achieve due to economic reasons or family pressure. Those who overcome all such obstacles and take on this journey are the ones who took their first steps to become travelers. Today, we listed Female Travelers who overcame all these challenges and transformed their lives into stories.
Let us share their stories.
1- Bilinmeyen Rota – Tuğçe
Travelling was Tuğçe’s childhood dream and now, she is a female traveler who has travelled to over 15 countries. She always wanted to fly freely like a bird, instead of putting down roots like a tree. She crossed the ocean in a cargo streamer and took extended train rides. Tuğçe constantly talked to her friends about her passion to travel, but she never could take that first step. One day, she quit her job of 7 years and set out on a journey.
Her advice for women dreaming about travelling on their own is not letting anyone say that you cannot do it. She says, “have confidence in yourself and decide”, and that the rest will follow. If you want to have a piece of this free traveler’s route, follow her at www.bilinmeyenrota.com.
