Why A Road Trip with Strangers is the Best Way to Travel
Your mom probably taught you to never get in the car with strangers. As a kid, she's probably right. As an adult, using your better judgement and hopping in can lead to incredible exploits that won't leave you as a hostage. I only have one encounter with this in the form of a road trip, and it was jam packed with amazing experiences.
One of the main reasons I like to travel solo is because I get to meet more people that way. It forces me out of something familiar (like traveling with a friend or partner) and into the unknown. It’s not always easy, as it requires you to really open up and push your boundaries, but more often than not it leads to new adventures and new friendships.
