Here’s a list of how the ladies from the rice valley travel, and what their parents said (made regulations) about it. No stereotypes here- this post was made for fun!
1. “Go with a tour”
Because the tour guide will be with you forever and always be your
knight in shining armour.
2. “Go with family”
Because there is safety in numbers, and why not make EVERYTHING into
a family activity?
3. “You must at least bring a guy with you”
Because his testosterones will scare bad people away.
4. “But you can’t just go with ONE guy, there must be another girl”
You know, so that you don’t end up falling in love because we don’t
approve of him yet. Or ever.
5. “Call me every 2 hours and text every hour. I want your precise location”
This only actually matters at night honey, they want you back at your
hostel bright and early.
Sometimes they go overboard with it, don’t you think? But all they want is for your safety and they still see you as their little girl.
So earn it. Prove yourself responsible and earn your rights to travel the way you want to. I got my solo trip only after pestering them for 8 months!
Any other girls with quirky rules they were ruthlessly imposed on when travelling that I missed? Comment below! Let’s share – and hopefully no parent will ever find this post.
