How To Make Friends Anywhere
16 Jan 2018INSPIRATIONBY SweetEscape

Travelling is another way to make friends with people from all over the world. It is much easier because people are more open these days. Chances are even after you have gone your separate ways, you will still be friends on social media.

1. Join an open trip

If you don’t have anyone to go travelling with, never fear. How about joining an open trip where you can meet new people? You will definitely develop new friendships after spending some time having fun and laughing together.

2. Spark conversations

After a long day of sightseeing, why don’t you hang out at a local pub instead of just staying at your hotel. Sit at the bar and start conversations with people who are also sitting there. Most likely they are also tourists who will be more than happy to exchange exciting and interesting travel stories with you or you will meet locals who can be of help the next time you visit.

3. Open up, don't be shy

Don’t be shy to strike up a conversation with the locals whether it is a shopkeeper, a hotel staff, or even an elderly sitting on a bench at the park. A five-minute conversation can be an enjoyable moment. You might learn something about the place you are visiting such as the culture, the food, and some tips that can make your trip all the better. In the meantime, you can drink, dance, and laugh!

4. Hang out with a SweetEscape photographer

Lastly, book a SweetEscape session so you can meet up with the local photographer and hang out after the session. Who knows, they might take you to cool hang out spots! Not only that, they might also give you great tips, and we can never be tired of travel tips!

Making new friends gives you the best feeling when travelling because it gives you a sense of being well connected with the world. There are so many things you can learn and fun to be had. Don’t be shy. All you have to do is to start with a smile and a simple ”hello”.
