Yesterday on Budget Travel Beth Collins Women of all ages are taking the types of getaways that are as varied as the women: knitting trips, spa trips, surf trips, city trips, etc. Budget Travel actually has a new web site that follows their Girlfriend Getaways magazine, girlgetaways.com.
As I once mentioned, the start of this blog was kind of inspired by a “girlfriend getaway” so when I first came across their new site, I was excited. And to further prove that my friends and I are amid a growing trend, the above article also mentioned that The Fine Living Network just launched a series called All-Girl Getaways, hosted by Stephanie Oswald, who’s the editor in chief of travelgirl magazine; and Marybeth Bond, author of 50 Best Girlfriends Getaways in North America, has come out with a sequel, Best Girlfriends Getaways Worldwide.
It also got me thinking about some of the other travel trends out there.
CouchSurfing is another good one that was experienced by Kristin Luna on World Hum. It seems like a great way to save money when traveling. But the best part is the fact that there is a community out there filled with people with similar mindsets and it serves as a place, both virtually and literally, that diminishes borders in a genuine way.
