It was lonely sometimes when I traveled alone. Even I love the freedom to do anything I wanted to. But I needed some socialize activities as well. Luckily that I was not a shy person. So I always made new friends all the time when I traveled.
Now I have got load of friends that still keep in touch on the road more than friends I have known them from my home town.
Trust me , it is very easy to get a new friend. As I am an Asian guy , there are more boundaries than you guys would have. Here are my tips and tricks to make a new friends. And the best thing about it is that you could choose the one you want to know!
Here are seven of the ways I make friends while traveling solo:
Lovelyplanetz, is not just the name of our website and ‘our planet is not lonely anymore’ isn’t just the theme- I used this name because I don’t want to be the only one to contribute to the website. I have created this page for everyone to share their ideas, their advice and experiences, to come together and join in doing something to make our world a lovelier place….. (but how can we do that???)
Two nice people I have known for a while are Rosie and Claire. I met them through the Couchsurfing network and they have been abroad for over four years now. Their story is inspiring and they would like to share some of it with you.
Here is my first guest’s post by Rosie Stewart.
“Really? You bought a car for just NZ$1,000 and sold it for a profit. That sounds unreal!!!”
That was the reaction of Santiago, the Argentinian guy who stayed with me at Lyn’s house. He travelled New Zealand for months before crossing the water to Australia in 2010. Infact he had just sold his car before he met me one month later.
–”Have you accumulated enough hurdles to experience the success?”
I am pretty sure that failures are the part of success. That is why I have a subcategory of success story as failure. And because of my failure of TV. project that leaded me to MR.Adisak.
It was an omen again!!! I had lived in Australia for a year with working holiday visa. After I came back to Thailand. I felt like I could not go back to a shit payment routine job anymore! ( Australian minimum wage was 20$ per hour , Thailand was 10$ per day).
I brought back an idea to write a book about experience I had got from working holiday visa. It was in 2011 , there were few people in Thailand who knew about this visa. ( Thailand have a quota for only 500 people per year that could get this visa). And I knew that this visa was an awesome opportunity for young Thai to travel and make money at the same time.
