Making icebreaking easy during your travels...
Posted on 01 June 2018
While traveling you may meet many different people with many different backgrounds, cultures and stories. Getting to know people on a personal level can teach us not only about their own experiences but also about things we could improve or enhance in our own lives. But sometimes we remain reserved and keep to ourselves because we fear fallacy in our social interactions.
To help guide you through sometimes intimidating icebreakers, we have compiled a list of things you can do to make lifelong friends while you’re travel:
1. Join a tour
Whether it is a walking tour or a group tour, you will be surrounded by plenty of other people that love to travel and explore new experiences and places. If the group is small enough, the tour guide may even ask everyone to introduce themselves, this is a helpful way to break the ice so that you can spark up conversations with people effortlessly.
2. Connect online
Nowadays, almost everything is online. That includes methods of connecting with other travellers. If you have a question, going into a forum thread to ask your question can lead to very interesting dialogue and maybe even a lifelong friendship.
Staying at a hostel can be an awesome way to meet sociable, like-minded travellers and locals.
4. Rent a room
Renting out a room from someone’s home can also offer an amazing opportunity to meet and make a new friend. From our experience, people that rent rooms from their homes tend to be a very friendly and sociable. So don’t be shy and make a new friend!
