At Stepabroad, we are always so inspired by our female travellers who embrace solo travel and fearlessly venture out into this amazing world. It can be intimidating travelling alone for the first time. We’ve experienced this ourselves, which is why we are here for our participants every step of the way. Within a few months, we find our travellers gain a sense of confidence, self-awareness and wonder. Through their experiences abroad, our female travellers return home as more empowered and courageous women.
Today we want to shine a spotlight on just a few of our female participants whose journeys have inspired us – we hope they inspire you too!
“Travelling is important because of the number of invaluable lessons it provides. Travel introduces you to people that you wouldn’t typically interact with or have the chance to meet. It is important to converse with people from different backgrounds and cultures because you unearth so much about the world, and yourself, by speaking with people who challenge your views and ideas.”
“I wanted new experiences, to meet new people, see new places and immerse myself in the unfamiliar. The experience is exciting, it brought me out of my bubble and gave me a new perspective on my own existence. I really love the sense of freedom you get by travelling – having no set plan meant I could go anywhere, and do anything.”
“Traveling has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone in ways that I could not have ever imagined. If I did not travel, I would not have grown into the woman that I am today. Not only has travel broadened my knowledge of other cultures, cities, and countries, but it has made me more confident, adventurous, and excited about what life has to offer!”
“Solo travel is all I have known really. I attribute it to being impatient in the most wonderful way. Am I supposed to compromise my desire to go somewhere amazing just because my friends are busy? No! Solo travel has empowered me to do what I want, when I want, without having to rely on anyone else but myself.”
“What has surprised me most is how empowering the feeling of independence, accomplishment, and freedom is! I’m able to travel in exactly the way I like, in whatever way that makes me the happiest. Whether it’s spending the day with new friends from my hostel or having a relaxing beach day reading, I have the opportunity to decide 100% for myself!”
“Stepabroad has been nothing short of amazing! We would not be in Spain right now without them, and we are forever grateful for the incredible experience working with them. THANK YOU!”
“They helped me get my resume out to Japanese companies they are partnered with and I was able to get interviews and a job from there! If you’re looking into working abroad, definitely get in contact.”
“Stepabroad was paramount in making my transition from Canada-Australia smooth and efficient! I would recommend the company to anyone looking for travel guidance, and I will be using the company again.”
“I mean Robyn is great. Always very quick to respond and even after I got to England and still had questions, she helped me out. Also emailed me to make sure I was okay as well which warmed my heart.”
“The support and help I received all throughout the months leading to departure were indispensable! I’m very glad to have chosen to travel with Stepabroad for my Working Holiday in New Zealand. Thanks!”
“Yeosong has been very friendly and helpful. The ease of mind of knowing someone is there to answer your questions is worth the price alone.”
