How to Find The Perfect Travel Companion For You

With Brittany Lindsey, Globally B

Finding the right travel companion for your specific trip is one of the most important decisions you can make. Select the wrong travel partner, and even the best travel destinations can be ruined. Trust me, I’ve heard of so many friendships and relationships destroyed forever because they were horrible travel companions.

No matter how close you are, some people are not meant to travel together; and it’s ok. What’s not ok, is not taking the time and effort before booking your trip to determine the right travel companion for a particular trip. Remember, just because someone makes a great adventurous travel partner doesn’t make them the right person for a relaxing trip.

To help set you up for a great travel experience, I’ve asked my friend and travel buddy, Brittany Lindsay of Globally B, to join me this week. Brittany has traveled to 70 countries and is well versed in the art of picking the right travel buddy.
