Friends you meet while traveling is the most important part of your travel. They are the ones who will share your sorrows, your good times, take care of you, share your joys, party hard with you and share the most beautiful spots on earth.
You will spend time with friends all over the world.
Here are 6 reasons this friends will be friends for life:
1.YOU REALLY GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER
What makes you to the person you are? Habits and influence. Live is copy and paste. Doesnt matter in which situation in live.
You are all the same person while traveling. In the moments we meet other travel people we have the same influence and surroundings. If we are from the same country or not. You are the furthest from your comfort zone you have ever been.
There are those small things that make you different.
When you are home and you meet someone it is almost based or influenced by the place you live, same work, going to the same university or school. While travelling, it is only infkuenced by one thing: TRAVELING. A thing you and the other people likely love. You really get to know each other. Complete on another stage. You might find that you know someone you have just met much better than a friend fro home that you have known for ages. That makes your connection to that person so deep and pure.
2.LIVE WITH YOUR TRAVEL FRIENDS
You wake up in the same place, get ready together, eat together , do your laundry together, skip the dishes together and of course get drunk together. You live together, just like with your family, but this time people in the same age and mission.
That can connect you even more.
3.EXPERIENCE OF COMMON ADVENTURES
When you are travelling , you might meet someone and share a dorm room. That will not make your connection so special.
But maybe you decide to do something crazy together, like a skydive. That will change your connection. When you have shared fear, adrenaline and extreme excitement, you instantly have much more in common than most people do. At any point of life you will look back at this. Maybe as one of the craziest momenst you have ever been to and the first thing that comes to mind when someone asks you about it, is the person you did it with. This beautiful soulmates who showed up in you mind, taken pictures and who’s names you wrote down in your travel diary. They wil be in your head forever.
4.YOU DO THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE CONSIDERED
You might be all about the beach, but your friend found this nice hiking track. So do both! You might end up discovering an unexpected passion. Just because of the other person. You do things you never thought about and it seems fun to you. That take influence on your life.
5.YOU DECIDE WHO YOU SPEND YOUR TIME WITH
We all had this moment. You arrive anywhere, alone, dropped your stuff and head out to the common area. here you find a lot of people, all chatting or doing something different. It’s a bit frightening in the beginning, but after a while you will take that first step and you will walk up to someone and ask if you can join the conversation or open up with something like ‘hey, do you come here often?’
Sometimes it happens randomly, but most of the times there was a reason for you to choose thát particular person out of the many options. If there was no one you liked, you would just have gone back to do something alone. And if the person you talk to is different than you expected, you can just keep it to one conversation. When you stay in touch though and become friends, and the other has a mutual interest in you, it happened for a reason. You chose that person because something about them intrigued you, you chose them because you think they could be your next best friend, and that makes your friendship a very special one.
6.YOU WILL SAY IT IN FUTURE
You will tell everyone after the trip that the people you met were the best part of it. You have made memories together. Memories you will probably see as one ot the best things you have ever done. The people you met had the honour of joining your trip. Maybe you find your soulmate and you will stay forever. You never know. ?
