i'm planning to go travelling in South america in 2015, at the moment on my own. I've never been and wondered whether I should be looking up travel buddies or should I go it alone? what are the advantages either way?
Thanks all!

Hi Jake! Travelling is such a great thing! I personally think it is a matter of taste if you better like travelling alone or with some mates and I think you should try out both variants for really knowing, which way of travelling better fits to you. I have tried both and after all I must admit that I hate travelling alone, because everytime I travelled alone, I got bored very quickly. I think this is because you're neither able to share those amazing travelling experiences with anyone. Of course, if you travel with someone else, you'll have to make compromises frome time to time 'cause your mate possibly won't always want to do/see the same things as you. Hope I could help you out! Anyway: I'm planning to go travelling to South America (probably Argentina, eventually Columbia) in January/February 2015 and I'm looking for a mate. ;) If you're interested contact me.

Hi Third Lanark. Thanks for the advice, I guess it wouldn't be too difficult to do a bit of both. Not sure exactly when I'm going but will message you if I'm going to be around at the start of 2015! Thanks!
