It’s been years since my husband’s death and I’ve travelled a lot. As a widow I’ve found that the success of my travels is almost always directly linked to the people that I’m travelling with.
It doesn’t matter if you get a flat tire, your bags are lost by the airport, family gets sick at home or your visa is cancelled as long as you’re travelling with someone that can laugh at your adventures with you.
I just got back from a month in Barbados with a great group of ladies. The trip had its bumps in the road but somehow it all worked out because we had the support of each other. We laughed, we cried and we danced away our frustrations. It was a great time with friends as we swam every day at Miami Beach and counted our blessing to be out of our cold Canadian winter weather.
Don’t let being a widow stop you from travelling. Reach out to friends and family to see who is a good personality match to travel with. Base your trip on who you will be spending time with, not on how good a package you get. I know many ladies that have had an amazing trip and some that did not because of who they had with them.
Travelling can be expense – be fussy about who you share your time with.
