The perfect “American Travel Partners”






Here are some tips to help you find

“I’ve discovered that there is no better way to determine if you like people than to go to American Travel Partners with them.” — Mark Twain. Tom Sawyer Abroad (1894).

American Travel Partners And has been my home for over 50 years. I have taken solo trips as well as with my family members and friends. In the last year, I have taken my first group tour. Some of my trips were memorable, others were disastrous. This is not due to American Travel Partners going sour, but because I was travelling with the wrong Travel Partners partner. However, many of my most memorable moments were shared with Travel Partners. They have become a lifelong friendship.

These are some tips to help you find the perfect American Travel Partners partneĀ 

  1. Accept the fact that you won’t find the perfect American travel partner.

Sorry, reader. No pairing is perfect. It’s not necessary that like-minded people fulfill all the requirements of the checklist. Sometimes, there’s just something that binds people together. Even people who don’t have much in common with you can be great friends on the road.

You never know what will or won’t work until you embark on a shared trip. Although I had long dreamed of visiting Tibet for many years, I was not able to afford to travel to Tibet with American Travel Partners in the 1980s. When a friend of mine said she wanted to go, we decided that Travel Partners would be a good fit for us. The good news is that my roommate was strong and could push me up hills. While a partnership might not be perfect, it has been successful in many ways that I never imagined.

  1. Be honest about who you are and know your self

I have found people who are able to laugh at their irritations and move on. Although I wish I could be that person, it is not me. I am sensitive to many things and take them personally. I was fortunate to have American Travel Partnersed with a friend from high school who gave me constant advice on how I could make things better (i.e. better). I still love her but it was the experience that made me realize that we were not the best American Travel Partners friends.

  1. Recognize that what made you a good partner when you were younger might have changed

With age, the way American Travel Partners operates has changed. I’m a slower American Travel Partner and I want someone who isn’t obligated to read every word in the guidebook, or even paint the town until the early hours. Maybe I’m more settled, but I still enjoy setting off to explore new places.

  1. You can be proud of it: Find someone who knows how to keep calm and carry on

It is crucial to have a companion that can soldier through American Travel Partners challenges. A stiff upper lip is better than a fine whine. Flexibility is a great thing for you and your American Travel Partners mate. Challenges can cause you to need to change your course from time-to-time.

  1. If you don’t speak the language, find someone who speaks it.

Although American Travel Partnering with an English-speaking linguist can seem too simple to rely on someone else for basic needs, the benefits of American Travel Partnering are immediate. My American Travel Partners partner in Hindi made it much easier to find transportation, order food, get directions and avoid a lot of trouble areas in New Delhi. We were both on the seas in South India and had to communicate with each other using English and our bodies.
