2. YOU’LL MAKE NEW FRIENDS
Backpackers usually sleep in hostels, which is a great way to make new travel buddies and lifelong friends. When you sleep in hostels, you’ll be surrounded by hundreds of other like-minded travelers from across the globe. These hostels have communal spaces that are made for socializing. They also offer tours, pub crawls, and other activities for you to get involved with the other guests.
Whether you show up alone or with a group, you’re bound to make new friends in just about no time. Imagine exploring the streets of Paris or Argentina with friends you met at your hostel earlier that day.
