Growing up, I was an only child for six and a half years. My parents would travel around a bit with me, but the real fun began when my younger brother, Thomas, was born. It was then, that I got my very first travel buddy.
“I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.” – Mark Twain
Traveling with other people isn’t always easy. I have found over the years, that finding a good travel companion is like finding a needle in a haystack. It takes time and patience, along with a positive attitude along the way. We’ve all been there, I’m sure, and just because you’re really close friends does not mean you have a relationship meant for the road. Personalities will clash and in the end friendships may be ruined. Trust me, I speak from personal experience, and I’ve lost a few friends in the process.
