Seriously! Let’s go someplace. Gonna be travelling around the US come october, or maybe sooner if I can find someone to go with. Had plans to go to NY w/a friend but that didn’t work out so I’m still looking. If there’s: anywhere you wanna go anything you wanna do want to go trekking through forests/parks/ people free places
Do lots of camping Go wwoofing/helpx/workaway Hangout w/friends in other states shoot me a message.
If you’re going to Berlin or happen to be in the city from the 7th to the 10th and want a travel buddy or wanna show a tourist around let me know! Don’t worry I’ve booked my hotels (staying at the Lux 11) just looking for local people or other tourists to hangout with as I’ll be alone for the duration of my trip :)
A backpacker has your back. Scared of traveling? Don’t be. The whole vagabond life might be intimidating, but trust me fear not.
A little guide for those entering the travel world:
1) Smile. A smile goes a long way. I tell you, you will make friends so much faster if you don’t look all serious. Who wants to talk to a zombie face?
2) Food. Feeling lonely? Simply, share a bag of chips and a bunch of backpackers will surround you.
3) Ask the stupid questions. One can always rely on four questions as a backpacker: Where are you from? How long are you traveling? Where have you been so far and where are you going?
4) Laugh with someone over the bad. You are bound to struggle over something while traveling and it is likely another backpacker is too. Friends are made very fast when you can connect on “why your life sucks at the moment.” So use those obnoxious bug bites to your advantage.
5) Sit in the open. Don’t hide in your bunk, but get out there. Read a book in the common room or drink a cup of tea in the kitchen. Make yourself available to people.
Backpackers are probably some of the easiest people to befriend. Don’t be afraid to go.

I need a travel buddy. I wish I could take off 6 months of my life and just travel. Go everywhere. Travel the US. Visit places like Texas, Hawaii, Florida, New York, Massachusetts, Missouri, etc. Take a plane to Europe and dilly-dally around all the beautiful architectural sceneries. Visit every country I am ethnically derived from to experience the culture and meet the people. Poland, Spain, Germany, Mexico, France, England.. Go to Australia and New Zealand. Tahiti, Morroco, Finland, Argentina, Africa, Egypt!! Just everywhere. I want to see different cultures and buildings and people. I want to immerse myself in travel. And find all sorts of beauty in being in a new place.
I’m a first-time traveler looking for a trustworthy buddy to travel with. I have a loose plan of traveling up to New York, then hitting up the west coast as it gets a little colder. I’ll be leaving Austin, TX in late July or early August.
YOU HAVE TO BE: -Willing to hitch, ride freight, rideshare, couchsurf, squat, camp… do dangerous things. That being said I’m a pretty careful person and don’t want my legs cut off.
-Okay with doing illegal things - trespassing, riding, graffiti, maybe shoplifting as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone.
-Be pretty open-minded in a general sense.
IT’D BE COOL IF YOU ARE:
-Close to my age (I’ll be 18, it’d be perfect if you were 18-25ish)
-A capable, courteous human being and traveler.
-An overly-idealistic natureboy or girl like me.
-Someone who has a grubstake worked up (I have one. It’s not that I’m not generous, because I’ll share what I got, but it’d be nice if I didn’t have to).
-Not into hard drugs. (Lots of wonderful people are, it’s just not something I’m into). Not a deal breaker.
-Able/willing to clean up a bit every once in a while. Crust punk looks cool as fuck but it doesn’t get rides or couchsurfing hosts as easily.
-Into having lots of fun and experiencing beautiful shit and getting covered in dirt and coal dust and meeting new people and…
An aspiring traveler, giving the wandering life a try. I like to read, write, explore, spend time in nature, talk to people, tell and hear stories, make music, have fun. I really like folk music, but I branch out. I am into having a spiritual, fun adventure but I’ve spent over a year researching down and out travel and talking to those who have traveled, and I know it’s not going to be a cakewalk. My ideas of what our journey will be like are somewhere between idealistic and realistic. Can’t wait to travel with you.
Note: I have had three people commit to travel with me and then drop out, sometimes in less than a week. Let’s take our time getting to know each other and discussing plans, but don’t commit unless you’re pretty sure.
