Her curiosity and travelling spirit will lead to all kinds of new tastes and aromas, therefore expanding her palette and mind. 

She will know the difference between mozzarella and cheddar cheese, and how an authentic Thai meal should taste like, and she can guide others on best cafes and restaurants.  

Even if she doesn’t cook, she will have a great opinion about curries, soups, desserts and everything she eats.

Before she knows it, she’ll find herself trying everything and experimenting with cuisines that are foreign to her. Whether she finishes her meal or not, at least she tried whatever catches her eye at first glance. She will end up as food lover craving old favourites and seeking out new foods all the time.

Be it sunrise over Angkor Wat in Cambodia or a glimpse of an elf in Iceland, she will continue to immerse herself in incredible sights and experiences. 

She’ll avoid stuff that will not leave an impression on her mind, mundane or superficial things. So, if you gift her a diamond necklace, chances are high that she would sell that and splurge on plane tickets instead. 

Stilettos and purses will no longer lure her because she’s become a person who prioritizes experiences over materialistic things. Nothing can satiate her soul than travelling to far off places.

Meeting inspiring people and investing time in lifetime experiences, she will stop fearing the unknown. She will ignore stereotypes she once believed were true, learn to be kind to strangers, overcome self-doubt, trust people, relate to Bedouin in the desert or a Hmong tribeswoman in China and make some more powerful realizations. 


5. She’ll become stronger

Navigating the world solo, she will learn to solve her problems all alone. And that gives her enough strength to serve as the captain of the ship. Eventually, she’ll come out as a fearless, brave and unstoppable individual. 

Most incredible of all, she’ll stop seeking external validation as much as she did before. She’ll be the epitome of self-love – enjoying her own company and prioritizing only the most nurturing friendships and give in to desires that are entirely hers.

She will choose herself over anyone or anything else in this world. Because she loves and respects herself immensely. And that’s an out-of-the-world feeling.

As she realises how capable she is, it’s hard to tame her. She won’t seek your help or wait for your approval to make decisions of her life. Being self-sufficient, she will never rely on others for safety and security. Having no ties to anyone or anything, she will always look towards the horizon rather than to other people for her happiness.
