A Girlfriend Getaway Sans the Girlfriend

May 10, 2007 at 2:10 p Leave a comment

We are all about the Girlfriend Getaway, of course but who says you can’t get away with your very best friend (and sometimes worst enemy!)–you.

The Byog staff receives emails frequently from women who want to have that dream getaway, something crazy they have never done before. One problem — no one to go with. Not that they don’t have friends they just can’t find a friend on the same page.  They may not be up for 5 days of rock climbing or Thailand may be a little too exotic for them.

Traveling solo can be intimidating so we liked the idea of a group trip. That is what sparked our interest in Gutsy Women Travel. We are so thrilled to have them on the BYOG. Not only do they have a selection of great getaways to take with a best friend or sister or mom they are also to be enjoyed as a solo traveler.

April Merenda, President and Co-founder of Gutsy Women Travel, responded to a reader in their April, 2007 newsletter  “On every trip there are usually about 50% of the participants who are traveling on their own while the other 50% come with a friend or female relative. It’s a natural instinct for women to nurture one another and bond and you’ll find that by the end of the first evening’s welcome dinner, you’ll feel like old friends with the rest of the group and will wonder why you ever hesitated to come by yourself!”

Check out their listings on the BYOG Guide or visit them online for all international destinations.
