5 Reasons to Travel with StrangersLike0

Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends.
You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things: air, sleep, dreams, sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it… and, I love it. It takes a lot of courage but if we over think it, we never get to experience wonderful things.

Here are 5 reasons to travel with strangers

Learn to let go Being a stranger is one of the toughest thing that can happen to anyone. You can feel left out and lonely. Traveling with strangers forces you to let go of that and alters your personality. For photographers, being behind a lens they can disguise the fact that they have nothing to say to strangers, don’t let it be your lifesaver. It helps you grow and let go of that feeling and eventually…friendship builds.

Trusting comes easily Something is so comforting about a stranger, it’s as if they exist forever the same. You can open your heart out to them, that’s the thing about flying with strangers, you could talk to someone for hours and never even know their name, share your deepest secrets and then never see them again. Maybe, you also even start taking restaurant tips, trying new adventures and activities and possibly more open to new experiences.

You can break free anytime That is worth a million dollars. Excusing yourself to take some time out will come so natural and easily with no judgements or pressure. You are free to roam in any direction you want at any time you choose to.

Falling in love Some of the best people you meet were once strangers. Traveling with strangers can open your heart on the way you see yourself. Falling in love with yourself all over again. They can help you see the good and beautiful in you. They can help you grow.

Learn from each other Make life about more than just you. Smile at strangers; volunteer for a bigger purpose and don’t except anything in return. Ask questions, learn their name, find out what they love, what their fear is. You can learn so much from strangers when you travel together. Enter their world if it’s interesting enough and I promise you, you will always look for more!

  • Bom Dia! First at breakfast 😊 @fslisbon
  • I can't believe I made it here. I've been always trying to visit The Pena Palace but something was always in the way! This is the most complete and notable example of Portuguese architecture of Romanticism - The palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. ❀️
  • Castle of the Moors, built in the 8th and 9th century, overlooking Sintra. One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.
