If traveling with a companion is your thing, then you definitely know that Twain was absolutely right. It’s a fact that has been agreed by many, that the best way to know someone is when you start traveling with them. It’s a wonderful experience.
These partners are our 3am friends or soul sisters and brothers or the best mates, who start being our travel family. They are the ones who laugh with you through ups and cry with you when you’re low or down. Everyday spent with them would feel like a celebration.
But, what kind of a travel companion are you looking for? We often think our personality and attitude determines what kind of a travel friend you’d require. But, when it’s about travel, you will always need someone who can complement you. It’s like completing your flaws and overcoming your no’s to a big yes.
Let’s get started.
Laid backer – Good to go person
If you’re someone who only likes lazing around on a vacation or a holiday, and probably likes to snuggle under layers of cozy quilts and someone who finds true love in a hot mug of coffee. Then, you should know that travel is a serious hobby, and you cannot waste your time lazing around because that can be done back at home as well. That is why, if you’re a laid back traveler, then you may need a person who is a go getter. Someone who can drive and convince you to explore places. Meanwhile, your go-getter friend can learn to be as calm as you and enjoy a relaxing spa with you? You never know.
Vigilant – Courageous
What is a holiday without some adventure? Boring, isn’t it? The best way to enjoy traveling is to do something out of your comfort zone and face your fears. And the world is filled with such adventures. So, if you’re someone who is extremely cautious and thinks about the what if’s in life, then you really need a travel companion that is daring. Someone who will definitely motivate you to overcome your dreads and plunge you out. And you must be wondering how you can complement your adventurous friend? Well, adventure without being cautious and careful can lead to a lot of problems. So you can guide your adventure friend when to take calm down to get home in one piece. Haha!
Organizer – Impulsive
Some of you might be the ones to plan your holiday with the minutest details, from hotel accommodations to planning your dinner. But, chalking out the things in advance would avoid all sorts of confusions, agreed, but don’t you feel like you may forget to enjoy completely? Sometimes, life doesn’t need to be planned. It needs to be an on-going process and you have to keep enjoying whatever keeps coming your way. A planner would need an impulsive companion who is known to be the sudden planner. Something like un-planned early morning drive, or deciding to go watch the sunrise at 4am in the morning. And you in return can help him keep him well-organized with the flight bookings, a shelter to stay and make sure you don’t get lost on your holiday.
Spree – Scrooge
Some of us, especially youngsters are people who would just blindly throw money on your holiday. And of course, you are going to be a free-hand person while spending on all your travel plans. Be it souvenir shopping or eating in fancy restaurants or checking-in into a luxurious hotel. But, we forget that there is life after our holiday, right? And who can be better to remind you regarding the bills that are left to be paid, your penny pincher friend. Your pair would be the best, if you manage. Like you stop pal from being too miser about spending money and missing out on the little things that come to us only once. And your partner can help you save some money and guide you to spend it in the right way. Quite literally!
