Cada vez más mujeres se deciden a viajar solas por el mundo. Pero, por desgracia, algunos entornos todavía no son cien por cien seguros para las viajeras y especialmente para aquellas que deciden emprender un viaje en solitario.
Teniendo en cuenta estos factores nació GirlsLOVETravel, que trabaja en conjunto con la red de alojamientos particulares Overnight, una plataforma al estilo Airbnb. De esta forma se creó una comunidad de mujeres que ofrecen alojamientos privados de confianza para que las viajeras de todo el mundo tengan más seguridad y confort al quedarse en cualquier lugar.
GLT member @lisatheroadwarrior, pictured in Luang Prabang, Laos 🇱🇦 , is thinking about her next steps 🌏 . . "'I see my path but I don't know where it leads. Not knowing where I'm going inspires me to travel it.' ~ Rosalia de Castro Today is my first day back at work after my glorious sabbatical. Over the past 6 weeks, I found yoga in India, my heart in England and waterfalls in Laos. I don't know where my path will lead me next, but I know it will be an amazing adventure. ❤️💙💜"
Además del servicio de alojamiento, esta red ofrece relatos y recomendaciones de viajeras de todo en mundo, donde cuentan sus experiencias al viajar y motivan a todas las mujeres que quieran realizar un viaje a lugares tan exóticos como Uganda, Mongolo o el medio oriente entre tantos otros destinos.
Según sus creadores ya hay unas 330.000 mujeres dentro de esta comunidad que, según dice su web, pretende «empoderar a las mujeres para viajar con seguridad y apoyo. Somos una comunidad que pretende ayudarte a cumplir tus sueños viajeros, para ayudar a amigas a explorar el mundo y a empoderarte para descubrir el planeta».

I've had many questions about safety in Egypt and Jordan. Girls, it's not a thing. I traveled on public transport and no tours and never once did I question my safety!! In fact, the opposite. There was so much security it was annoying! The airports had 3 checkpoints! Who wants to take off their shoes 3 times!? Not me!! Lol As far as Egyptians- they are AMAZING. Jordanians? Beautiful beyond words. They both bent over backwards to make sure I loved their country and I will NEVER forget my time there! . I won't deny that bad crap has happened in Egypt but c'mon- US is no better..It's just framed differently. Do not miss the most epic trip in your life due to fake news!!!! . . . #gltLove #happy #travel #travelgram #wanderlust #instatravel #adventure #travelphotography #traveling #travelling #igtravel #instapassport #instalove #fun #dametraveler #girlswhotravel #darlingescapes #wearetravelgirls #femaletravelbloggers #travelbff #travelgirl #jordan #petra #egypt #egyptian #traveler #solofemaletraveler
Hello ladies! It's @sophiakimtravels again! I love traveling solo, especially off-the-beaten-track, because it empowers me and pushes me to go beyond my comfort zones. — Last fall, I saw a post on GLT about an error fare from the US to Chile for less than $250. I wasn't sure where I was going to be, but I just said "Screw it! I'm buying this!" — I was dying to go to Torres Del Paine, but no one could come with me. If you've been following the IG stories today, you've seen my solo trip to "dangerous" places along my solo Silk Road trip like Tajikistan& Afghanistan, but this time I was worried about trekking alone since I'm not an avid hiker! I've only done day trips. What if I broke my leg or got lost alone in Patagonia. — But despite my fear, I pushed myself to do it. I couldn't pass up this opportunity to hike through Torres Del Paine. I borrowed all my camping equipment and supplies from my friends, packed my bag, and went. — For 4 days, I hiked over 40miles the entire W-Circuit alone with all my equipment. It was definitely a challenge mentally and physically hiking with a 50 lb bag (also a challenge to fold up a tent by myself 😂), but I pushed through it, made it, and absolutely loved it. Although this trip may not be a big feat for avid backpackers, it was a huge accomplishment for me. I have never backpacked for longer than 2 days, nor am I a huge hiker, nor set up a tent alone, and never in my life have I done all of this, SOLO! There were only a few other female backpackers doing the W-Circuit solo (I met only two of them). I am proud of what I've accomplished, for myself and for other females, and feel empowered to continue to push myself and others to do more than what we think we can, pushing past the edge. Take pride in your accomplishments despite what other people will think or judge. Don't let fear get in the way of your wanderlusting heart and soul. — Have you wanted to travel solo? Have you done solo traveling? I would love to hear about it!
