As it’s International Women’s Day, we thought it was only right to celebrate being women. Which we did by eating biscuits and loudly discussing what awesome travellers we make. Discuss.
1. Women are better at multitasking
We mean, look at this chick. She can negotiate public transport, juggle multiple luggage options, carry off mad braids AND still pose for a photo. Heroine.
2. Women handle pain better
If you’ve ever woken up in a campsite full of dudes on the third day of the Inca Trail, you’ll understand exactly what we mean. No, you’re not injured, you’re just stiff. Deal with it.
3. Statistically, women will book their trip earlier than men
Which means we get better deals, save up more money and so can travel for longer.
4. Women are better in a crisis
Imperative for all those all important travel decisions on the road. Nap or hostel happy hour? HAPPY HOUR, ALWAYS HAPPY HOUR. THE CLUE’S IN THE NAME.
5. Women are proven to be better at foreign languages
Say what now?
6. Women snore less
You’ll thank us for this when you’re in shared dorm-based scenarios.
7. Women are cleaner
See above. However, that Aussie dude’s four day old jocks that have somehow made it onto your bunk bed? Can’t help you with.
8. Women live longer
Which means we have more years to travel. Booyah.
9. Women have less spacial awareness
Doesn’t matter, we’ll get a tuk tuk.
