Girls Weekend – Have Two Sweeter Words Ever Been Uttered for the Single Girl?
Not that married or otherwise committed ladies can’t enjoy a girls weekend, of course, but they enjoy them in a different way. For them it’s about getting away from something (or somethings) and for us it’s about getting to something. The girls weekend holds a special bliss for the single girl.
I have someone to travel with!
First off, the single girl often finds herself with no one to travel with. There’s always the option of travelling alone, of course, and I’ve decided that this is the year I do that for the first time. I mean, I’ve travelled alone before, but always for business and never for pleasure. Unless you count the weekends I spent by myself at a friend’s vacation condo a two-hour drive away, but I don’t. So, having a girls weekend to go on means that you’ll be travelling with at least one other woman and reaping the rewards of those encounters – too much food, too much wine, lots of laughs, just the right amount of gossip and an appropriate amount of dancing on tables. Yes, trust me, there is an appropriate amount, especially when you’ll never see these people again! J
Single girls weekend at the cabin
A couple weeks ago a new friend of mine invited me and another single friend of ours up to her cabin for the weekend. And when I say cabin, I mean cabin. It was a nice place and well appointed, but no cell service, no wifi, no TV, and one radio station that played 80’s music, which is just fine with this Gen Xer. I was expecting the usual food, wine, laughs and gossip, which I got, but I also got something else so unexpected. We had planned to hike on Saturday morning and spend the rest of the day relaxing. Instead, we started chatting the minute we got up and didn’t stop the whole day. We literally sat in the living room of this cabin in our pajamas, no showers, no hair and makeup, eating, drinking and talking the entire day. We shared so much of ourselves, our families, our past relationships, our hopes and dreams. It was one of the best days I can remember having and never would’ve happened had we had access to our phones or other people.
Single Girl Bliss on Vacation?
Yes, I said it earlier, the beauty of girls weekends aside, I do intend to travel by myself this year. And I mean get on a plane, book a hotel room and rental car, and do everything I want to do – by myself. That little adventure awaits a future posting, but if you’re stuck in the single-will-travel category, we’ll be embarking on this adventure together and I’ll be filling you in on all the things you need to know about single girl travel. There’s a great big world out there just waiting for single girls like us to discover it!
