If you plan to travel to a área where you know you will have no friends at and you are unfamiliar with then a travel companion will turn into a great friend. Because of the amount of times friendships have been made is unknown, we can probably safely assume that the number is high. This can be a good thing because there is nothing wrong with good friends sharing special days, having nice conversations and sharing the problems in their life.
Finally, you may think to yourself, “Why would I need a companion when I can take care of myself.” This may be true but if you are in a whole new land, you can never assume you will remain safe. Having a travel companion will help keep you aware of the duties you are responsible for. Plus, getting lost in a foreign land can happen to anybody and the next thing you know you find yourself lonely, lost and hungry.
At the end of the day, having a travel companion is a great option for those of you who get homesick, is traveling for the first time or who prefers to be around people while traveling. The opportunity to travel with someone also creates more fun together.
Personally speaking, I truly enjoy traveling with a companion and I highly recommend it. Although a solo trip can be fun, the advantages of a travel companion truly do outweigh loneliness. Besides that all costs can be Split, more sights and sounds can be explored in detail and not to mention the fantastic memories you’ll be creating together.
