7 Important Things I Learned Taking Girls Trips

Girls Trip HipLatinaA few years ago, I made a promise to myself that I would make travel a top priority and that I would do at least one girls trip a year. I made this promise to myself early in 2015, months after breaking an engagement with a man I had been in a relationship with for over 8 years and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I have since kept my word and over the years it’s evolved from one girls trip to quite a few a year. Just this past year alone, I traveled multiple time with girlfriends—close friends and new friends and I plan on doing even more next year. So you could only imagine my excitement when I learned that Chevy was setting me up on a weekend road trip to Woodstock, Vermont and I was able to invite two girlfriends—I was hyped!

We had the opportunity of driving a 2019 Chevrolet Traverse for our road trip, making it a very comfortable and relaxed ride for all of us. The car itself was incredibly spacious. It comfortably sits 8 people and has a cargo space of 98.2 cu.ft so considering there was only three of us, you could only imagine how much space we wound up having for all of our stuff. Also drying for 4-5 hours was definitely challenge in terms of occasionally getting a little lost. But thank god for the Traverse’s Onstar feature that got us in touch with a representative that provided us with navigation help. It made us feel safe and definitely gave us peace of mind whenever we were on the road. 

We also got to stay at the On The River Inn, a cozy and adorable Inn in Woodstock surrounded by lakes and nature.

It was a great weekend getaway but I learned a lot regarding how to approach girls trips in the future. Let’s be real: When it comes to traveling no one ever talks about the challenges that can come with vacationing with friends—they just talk about the fun stuff. To avoid any unnecessary drama on your next trip—here’s a few things to consider before planning your next vacation with your BFFs.
