Only girls allowed: The rise in female friendship trips
Recent studies indicate that girls trips are becoming more and more popular, with one in three women over the age of 45 preferring to take their one holiday a year with friends rather than their partner.
50 per cent of women want to take a break from their home life and husbands to spend quality time with missed friends who they don´t get to see very often.
Other reasons were that they want to experience something their partners aren´t interested in or they just like treating themselves to well-deserved “me-time”.
It appears that girl code is on the rise, with a high percentage of females putting their friendship first. Over a third of women have stated that given the choice, they would rather holiday with on an all-girl break rather than a romantic getaway.
Just under a fifth of women over the age of 45 claim that they have two or more breaks every year ranging from a weekend to three or four days.
In addition to just needing a catch up with old friends, Harvard University has released research which suggests that these trips are essential to health.
Harvard researchers said: “social connections like these not only give us pleasure, they also influence our long-term health in ways every bit as powerful as adequate sleep, a good diet and not smoking”.
