|The life of the solo diner table, these|
women know how to travel!
Travel friends are different than the friends you have at home, work friends or even casual friends. They can be a
local you meet while traveling as well as another traveler on your tour or plane or ship.
Speaking with strangers eliminates the limitations we can put on our conversations. Perhaps because you do not expect to see them ever again, you loose any inhibitions. The conversations between 'strangers' can often include topics never spoke about back home.
You often speak more frankly with travel friends, sharing hopes, problems or dreams.
The travel friends I like the best are other travelers I meet on my long ship trips and staff members who interact with passengers because they enjoy it NOT because it is policy. With 7 or 14 days at sea there is time for chats and deep dialogues over dinner or drinks.
Who have you met on your travel adventures?
|Chef took the time to chat with me every day|
on a long crossing......such great energy and
a wonderful attitude, I enjoyed our short exchanges
|Craig taught computer skills to 'mature'|
passengers without ever laughing when I asked
the same questions.....
|My BEST TF, we met on an extended|
crossing and Pat showed me how
you can have fun every day! Hope to
see her when I get to OZ
|A chance meeting at a museum in |
Naples, we walked together
during the visit .
|Tina has a concierge travel business in Naples |
but you will want to become TA friends with her.
This was one of the best days I had in Italy, I
forgot I was there to do an interview for Home To
Italy, it was as if I was visiting an old friend.
New friends in Venice: Irma and Monica On my next trip Home to Italy we shall
have a cooking day with Ada.
|AMAZING Norma! We had tea together on the Queen Mary one afternoon.|
I love a woman who will order one of everything! oh yes we both did.
Norma is a painter and a teacher. She taught a painting class during the cruise.
Such energy at 90!
