Avoid Traveling Alone

You will have more fun and be more safe.

If possible find a travel buddy. Could be a close friend but most importantly someone you trust. There are plenty of reasons to travel with a friend rather than traveling alone:

First of all you get each other's company which is a great satisfaction when you are a long way from home.

Secondly you can save money. Cheap hostels just got cheaper. Splitting the costs of hostels, food and trips will save you money from time to time.

Thirdly you might try something you never thought of trying. Pushing each other to try unexplored limits is a great way of finding your way of traveling. Your travel buddy might have a dream about surfing in Australia, diving in Malaysia or wandering along the Great Wall of China. Maybe it is going to be the thrill of your life - who knows?

Last but not least you can discuss decisions to make the right choice and increase the safety for the both of you. Traveling together can be a pain in the arse but as long as you are both open-minded and give each other space when needed, I believe one of the best choices to make is to have a travel buddy. You'll see more, be more safe, have more money on your hands and have more fun. Now go fetch yourself a travel buddy!
