How to Make Friends During Your Trip
Meet People on Long Journeys
Long bus journeys can be miserable — no one likes to drive for 16 hours on a crowded vehicle, especially if it has no toilets. Instead of just shutting yourself to the world to read your book or listen to your iPod, why not strike a conversation with a fellow passenger?
You might meet someone who’s going to the same destination and could become a great travel partner. They also might know something you don’t (like a cheaper hostel or cool nearby village), and by changing your plans you end with new stories and a friend for life.
