Date A Girl Who Travels

Just found this lovely on blog of Aleh and could not help but share here :)

Date A Girl Who Travels – Solitary Wanderer

“Date a girl who travels. Date a girl who would rather save up for out of town trips or day trips than buy new shoes or clothes. She may not look like a fashion plate, but behind that tanned and freckled face from all the days out in the sun, lies a mind than can take you places and an open heart that will take your for what you are, not for what you can be/

Date a girl who travels. You’ll recognize her by the backpack she always carries. She won’t be carrying a dainty handbad, where will she put her travel journal, her pens and the LED flashlight that’s always attached to her bag’s zipper? In a small purse, how can she bring the small coil of travel string, the wet tissues, the box of cracker, and the bottle of water she’s always ready with, just in case something happens and she can’t go home yet

………………………”

  1. Superb…. and so true! A travelling girl has so much experience behind her. For her looks, she may not be the most attractive at a late night party but she is the one anyone would fall for. Eventually.

  2. “Date her, love her. and marry her, and your world will never be the same again”… well, marry her if she lets you!

  4. yeah, that would be nice, guys. find girls who travel and stop being either a) all intimidated and shit or b) take advantage of the “i won’t even have to see her again if I don’t make an effort”-thing. thanks.

  6. I cannot agree more to this entry. I myself am a traveler. There is more appreciation to humanity when one travels, and the most meaningful acts of kindness from other people are experienced first hand. Travel and have a more meaningful life.

  7. We, older ladies, love to travel too. It is a wonderful experience, no one can take them away from you, and they will enrich your life. I know mine is. :)

  8. date a girl who travels – but don’t anchor her down when you do; travel with her, explore with her, or if you can’t, let her continue on her journeys – she will return to you, return to home.

  9. I suppose that’s the dream girl of any guy in this world. Filled with plenty of virtues. And if she’s the one in the photo, who wouldn’t give their all to fight for her. But such a girl is hard to find isn’t it?

  10. This is lovely. I love travel, and I feel that most of my identity has got shaped through it. It has made me humble. Whenever I go to a new place, it makes me feel insignificant, because I know that there is so much more still to be seen.

    Thanks for this! Though I doubt the ‘marry her’ bit. I want to be a wanderer all my life.. marriage might tie me down :) Just a thought!

    My blog, in case you are interested neerusrandomology.blogspot.com

  11. I just discovered this chilling around Internet.. I d love to date a girl who travels,I have been looking for her since plenty of years but it seems to be really rare.
    Do you really know some of them ? Or are you interested :) ?

    Go on, it is nice..

  12. Hello Annabell: I´m writing you from Costa Rica. I have to say that I absolutely loved your post. I´ve traveled quite a bit and never seem to have enough. I marry a guy who I thought I was boring to death while talking about my experiences and he seemed to fall for me because of that! (funny story). Anyway. I also have a blog and a very active twitter account and would LOVE to translate this and post it for everyone to read it in spanish. Please tell me if you feel comfortable with this. I´d only do it if you allow me to
    Regards from sunny Costa Rica

  13. Reblogged this on and commented:
    Is a girl who travels worth it? Yes, she is. So when you find her, keep her. Don’t lose her with your insecurities and doubts. Because when she says she loves you, she really does. After all, she’s seen so many things, met so many people, and if she has chosen you, better grab that opportunity and thank the gods that you were lucky enough she’s chosen you and not that bloke she met while watching the sunrise in Angkor Wat, or while whitewater rafting in the Padas Gorge in Sabah.

    If she says she loves you, she must have seen something in you, something that can always call her back from her travels, something that can anchor her to the world in the way that she wants to after weeks and months of being on the road.

    Date a girl who travels. Make her feel safe, warm and secure. Make her believe that no matter where she goes, and however long she’s gone, you’ll always be there for her, the one that she can call home.

    Find a girl who travels. Date her, love her. and marry her, and your world will never be the same again.

    • Dora, Thank you for your comments here. As a person who constantly travels for not only fun, but my profession as well….finding someone who has faith in love has been difficult at best. Your comments brought a bit of hope to my hopelessly romantic self who hopes that one day despite the fact that I cannot be there 24/7, someone will cross my path that has faith in love and enough confidence in themselves to be my best friend and lover even when I am away. Thank you for your words of encouragement :)

    • Hey Aleah, so sorry for this issue. I didn’t mean to spread it that much, just love it so much so I couldn’t help but share it here. I will write a new post to correct this information.

      p/s: It is quite a bit hard for our wordpress user to share your blog as no option for reblog on your blog then :))

      Once again, I truly applogise for this thing. Hope that you understand

  17. I want to get a girl who travels i can be her compass and she can be my graphics card. I will be the one who charts her journey on Google maps and trip adviser and i can travel the world through he me memories and stories . Together we can be Geek and the Girl who travels

  18. Sounds great, except for one thing. Quote: She won’t mind if you get lost on your way to a date. She knows that often times, the journey is more important than the destination.

    Well, I say, that is one destination that may be more important than a journey.

    Other than that, no arguments!

  19. And here’s what I found :) http://yqtravelling.com/2013/02/13/dont-date-a-girl-who-travels/
    It’s easier to date a man who travels than a woman. Some female travelers never grow up. It’s risky to have a wife like this. :) If they have kids, they’re totally freked out. Too many adventures and no stability. Kids need stability. They need a responsible mother not an adrenaline junkie who risks her life now and then, when she gets bored.

    • Ah, loved this one :) Traveling really opens your mind and you learn a lot. I just came back from a 3 month backpacking trip and now everything is kinda boring at home.. Need a change already! Haha :)

  21. I cannot agree more with you. Someone obsessed with travelling, would always make a great company. The needs are few, all what is sought is dash of fresh air, the aroma of trees and flowers, and a path to follow (not always..)…

  22. Love this. I met my future wife while travelling, we were both on the Transsiberian on our way across the border from Russia to Mongolia. I had been travelling alone for a bit more than 1 month, she a bit less than two weeks. Still together, and I’m holding on to her because she is the best thing ever to happen to me <3
