The Power of Girls’ Trips: Why Women Should Travel With Other Women

Without a doubt, traveling is one of the most enriching experiences you can have in this life. And when women travel with other women, particularly other like-minded women, the adventure takes on a whole new level of magic. 

At Sunny and Turquoise Travel, we wholeheartedly believe in the transformative power of not only travel, but specifically, women’s retreats and girls’ trips. Whether it’s a quick Wine Country weekend or eight days in Greece, there’s truly nothing quite like all-female group travel. Join us as we dive into some of the most compelling reasons why traveling with other women is essential, and how it can enhance multiple aspects of your life in more ways than you might imagine.

Laughter Really is the Best Medicine

When women get together, laughter is almost always on the agenda. Sure, there might be some wine involved, but that’s neither here nor there. There’s something uniquely freeing about being with a group of other women who understand you perfectly, even if you just met for the first time. Women who share your sense of humor and aren’t afraid to laugh out loud nurture something deep inside that’s hard to explain. 

Plus, laughter has actual wellness benefits! In addition to relieving stress and tension, just a few minutes of laughing burns about 40 calories. So on your next girls’ trip, go ahead and indulge in that extra glass of wine or treat yourself to dessert. It’s only a matter of time until your group is doubled over laughing at inside jokes and silly moments.

Healing Through Shared Experiences

Traveling can be a crucial part of any healing journey, especially when shared with other women who likely understand your struggles and triumphs. Whether you’re navigating a major life change, seeking a break from a stressful day-to-day routine, or simply looking to recharge, being in a supportive group of females can offer comfort and perspective. Conversations during sunset hikes or around a bonfire can lead to emotional release and, in turn, newfound clarity.

Trying New Things Together

There are many, many benefits of travel, but one of the greatest is trying new things. And doing so with a group of supportive women makes it even more rewarding. From adventurous activities like zip-lining and snorkeling to trying new foods and learning about cultural traditions, a special kind of bravery comes from having your friends (new or old!) by your side. Tackling these experiences together goes a long way in pushing you out of your comfort zone and creating unforgettable memories.

Meeting New People and Expanding Your Circle

Traveling with other women not only strengthens existing friendships, but also opens the door to meeting new people. You’ll have opportunities to form new friendships and expand your social circle in ways you never imagined, with women from all over the world.

Making Lifelong Friends and Travel Buddies

Bonds formed during women’s retreats, even quick weekend getaways, often turn into lifelong friendships. There’s just something about the shared experience of travel that creates a deep, lasting connection. Whether it’s the women you laugh with, heal with, or try new things with, these friends often become your go-to travel companions for future trips. Imagine having a network of travel buddies scattered around the globe, always ready for the next adventure!
