One of our favourite aspects about travel is the people that we meet, be it a local or fellow tourists like us. And sometimes friendships can be formed quite quickly and intensely. We’ve met many people who we are lucky to call friends from previous travels, with these friendships surviving distance and in most cases language barriers too. And now with email, Skype, Facebook and Twitter, it’s easier to keep in touch.
Yet as the XIV Dalai Lama put it, “We have been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.”
