Searching for a travel mate

 

Searching for a travel buddy

If you plan on traveling through Australia, it’s nice to have a travel buddy. You can a request on the Australian travel forums. Hopefully, you’ll find a travel buddy really soon.

 

Tips when searching for the perfect travel buddy

It’s a smart move to not just go with anyone. Follow the following steps to find the perfect travel buddy!

Step 1:

Write a story as clearly as possible about who you are, what your hobbies are, your age and maybe a little bit of history. You don’t want your buddy to see any surprises during the trip!

Step 2:

Make a little list for yourself with requirements your buddy has to have. (male/female/age and maybe some other hobbies the two of you can do together. A similar life experience or some other similarities can also make for a good click!)

Step 3:

Post a message written to your ‘perfect travel buddy’ and explain very clearly what you’re planning on seeing/doing.

Step 4:

Mention clearly how long you want to stay and when exactly you plan on leaving. If you already have a plane ticket, mention your flight number, maybe someone’s on the same flight!

Step 5:

Place a message with a nice picture of you! Make sure the message is clear and appropriate.

Step 6:

When you’ve gotten into contact with a couple of people, don’t be afraid to be critical. Don’t be afraid to end up alone, there are a lot of people looking for a travel buddy, there’s somebody out there for you! So when the contact doesn’t feel perfect, don’t be afraid to look for a new one!

Step 7:

Start mailing or contact each other through facebook. If necessary, call or hang out before you leave (do it somewhere public like in a cafe or restaurant).

 

 

Step 8:

Talk about each others budget, wishes (what kind of vacation- active, passive-, shopping, partying, nature etc.) and expectations (freedom).

Step 9:

Once you’re on the trip, don’t feel obligated to stay together when it doesn’t click. You can always post a new message. Or choose to just go with it. The trip has to stay fun for both parties!

Step 10:

Have fun!!
