As a solo traveler, I value the opportunities where I get to meet new people as well as meet up with old friends along my travels. Returning to Melbourne gave me the opportunity to reunite with a new friend that I met months earlier, and an old friend and co-worker from the U.S.
I had been traveling full-time for nearly 15 months. One thing I didn’t expect was to lose close friends as the distance between us grew each day. Friends who suddenly felt they couldn’t relate to me any longer.
I explored the reptile house, beaches, an outdoor festival, movie theater, and went on a sunset boat cruise. I also randomly ran into a new friend, making it feel like the world isn’t so big after all.
Clare in South Australia offers many wineries that are easily accessible by riding a bike on a beautiful dirt path. I recommend using e-bikes.
As a solo traveler, I enjoy making new friends. In Vietnam, I had the chance to meet up with some new friends a few times. Their stories are very interesting.
While I road-tripped across the USA, I had the opportunity to stop and see some family and friends. It was a lot of driving, but I made it to my parent’s house in time for Christmas!
I reconnected with a friend after not talking for five years. We both seemed to realize we’d played a part in the dissolution of our friendship and had both been in the wrong. It was great to see her again and resume our friendship.
I met a friend of a friend for a beer and her family was great! I was also able to meet up with another friend while I was in Bend. In addition, I spent some time hiking.
