Whether it’s a flight seatmate or fellow traveler wanting to enjoy conversations or share the joys of being in a place, making friends become less tedious and interactions come off naturally. Travelers swear they’re talking more and this allows them meeting interesting people and widening their circle of friends.
Breaking away from social media

Such a break feels like a detox from usual checking of your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Traveling in a place where there is no wi-fi reception or you’re driven to turn it off, allow you to enjoy some breathing space that is lost from your daily routine. To many; traveling becomes a liberating force that allows them to better enjoy and mind the here and now.
