EP 037 Travel: A Beautiful Form of Therapy

Helen Suk moved to the UK shortly after she graduated university. What she told her mother was only supposed to be a summer trip, ended up being two years away from home. Helen was hooked with the travel bug ever since. On the show, Helen admits that traveling will not solve your problems. In fact, your problems will follow you. The good thing about travel is that it is a powerful tool that can change your perspective, and can even help heal you when you’re feeling lost.


Key Takeaways:

*Why is Helen such a strong supporter of women’s solo travel?

*Using travel to escape will do you no good. Your problems will follow you no matter where you go.

*For Helen, travel was not the answer, but it was a tool. A very powerful and enlightening tool.

*Helen told her mother she’d be spending just the summer in the UK. The reality was she didn’t come home until two years later.

*As Helen has traveled the world, she has developed a deep respect for the world’s wide life.

*What country or place has become a sanctuary for Helen?

*There’s beauty no matter where you go.

*What has been the hardest part for Helen about traveling solo?

*Fortunately, Helen has never been robbed while traveling.

*Helen tends to get a bit restless when she’s been in one place for a bit too long.

*Helen went to India about a year after her brother had been murdered. Helen was struggling emotionally, and knew she needed to take a pause in her life.

*When Helen went to India, it was so transformational for her. She was finally able to let go. She learned that death is just a natural part of the soul.

*Remember, solo travel is the ultimate form of self-care.
