Travelling excites people, and the reasons might be personal and differ from person to person.
Why does one go globe-trotting? It’s easy to guess- to escape from the humdrum of monotonous, routine life, and do something exhilarating. However, it becomes arduous for women to feel that excitement as much as men because there is a dearth of places in the world that offer women a safe space to explore. When female travelers want to set their foot out and conquer fresh territory, they have to research the background of a place.
