Staying connected: will you see your travel buddy again?

Love can strike at any time (not necessarily that kind of love) – especially whilst you’re travelling.

Picture it: you’re in a brand new environment with a surprise around every corner, and a journey ripe with possibilities ahead. You might be on your own, and you’re searching for some new buddies to share experiences with. As you’re sitting at the hostel bar/ cooking pasta (again)/ Skyping your dog loudly from the common room, you exchange a smile and get chatting to someone who seems to be on the same wavelength.

Who would have known that after a weekend of crazy city explorations, intense hiking trips and multiple belly laughs, they’d turn into your new favourite human being?
