How to Make Friends While Traveling Abroad

When anyone travels abroad OR any place within their surroundings they tend to come across many different types of people, be it different religion, hence here you are exposed to their culture, experience and stories. Making friends abroad is very difficult because we come from another country.


Before going to a new place find out from your friends, relative and ex-colleague whether they know anybody living at that place. If at all they know then get in touch with them, meet up for a coffee or a drink and have a chat.

Making new friends  when you move is a bit like dating. You have to go out of your way try and form a connection with new people.
