How to make friends while travelling

Travelling solo is fun and super brave but at times it can be a wee bit boring. We are social beings and hence we have the need to be around people. Looking at the leaning tower of Pisa but having nobody on your side to tell how spectacular it looks can sometimes evoke loneliness, especially if you are an extrovert. One of the many perks of travelling is that you can make new friends who may sometimes become an important part of our lives. But if you are one of those people who are not exactly a pro at approaching people, here are few ways that may help you out.

Stay in a hostel

Staying in a hostel is the best way to meet new people and save some cash as well. You will meet a wide range of travelers in hostels from solo travelers to families. You can enjoy the company of others and if you need privacy, you can ask for a private room as well. Not only it will save your money, you will also make unforgettable memories.

Pubs

Now, we are not suggesting you to get drunk and approach random people. Pubs and bars are always full of people and making friends over a few drinks is really common. Especially if you are in a big town or city, you can go to the pubs and buy someone a drink and you will make friends before you finish your drink.

Take up an activity

Another great way to meet like-minded people is to take up an activity like hiking, biking and sky-diving. There is usually a large group of people at such places and making friends is easier if you have same interests.
