What speaks the most for me is, what can it be, but a travel quote. There were plenty of inspirational quotes out there to which I felt really close to it.
A journey is best measured in friends, rather than in miles” by Tim Cahill (is a travel writer who lives in Livingston; and the travel quote is from his book Road Fever).
There had been few journeys I have made without making a friend on the road. I keep in touch with many of them. Not sure why, but I get along on the road better with the Australians. And these are the best part of traveling alone.
While you travel with another 5 or 6 friends its a bit difficult to connect with fellow travelers. But alone, is way easier.
At the end of the day, these are one of the most important things for me: having another friend.
