International Women’s Day is here and what better opportunity to take some time and celebrate some incredible women with our favourite 10 Inspiring Travel Quotes by Female Travellers. Under the theme of #BeBoldForChange IWD will raise awareness of pressing issues that still need to be tackled: equal pay, fundamental rights for women, control over our own bodies, trafficking, and many more.
This year we’ve seen millions of women around the world come together, raise their voices and stand up for themselves and their rights. And as hard and disheartening it can feel at times that we are still fighting age-old battles, there’s also a lot to be proud of and thankful for.
As digital nomad girls, we all have in common our love and passion for travel. It’s important to remember how privileged we are to be in a position to explore this beautiful planet, to travel (mostly) freely and safely and have millions of other female travellers to connect with.
So, we thought this would be a great day to celebrate some famous female travellers and role models by sharing some of their most powerful and inspiring travel quotes.
This one is for all the adventurettes, explorer babes, travel girls, wander women and nomad girls among us. We hope you get some inspiration from these quotes, not only today but the rest of the year too!
