Most of the people I've met through travelling I'll never hear from again. Can be a bit weird, it's like being best mates for a couple of days or nights out, and then you never hear from them again. Sometimes I stay in email touch for a month or two. The fantastic thing about travelling is you meet so many wonderful people - but you have to accept that you will never stay in touch with the vast majority of them.

But there are a few people I've met travelling that I'm still properly in touch with. There's one guy I travelled with in Thailand for a while three years ago who I'm still in regular email contact with, despite never having seen him since then. And someone I met on the same trip turned out to live pretty near me at home, so we meet up all the time for drinks.

Quoting james

Jasmine, you are a LEGEND. I hope your parents and friends back in the UK are proud of you and of what you are doing - they should be.

James thats very, very kind of you, i dont really know what people think back home, i'm just going with the flow and what life throws at me i'll deal with. Things happen for a reason and life's one big learning curve!! Awww..thanks, that's put me on a high!

i have made heaps of good riends travelling. whn i travel i occasionally meet ppl who i consider to be part of my `tribe`kindred spirits if u like. i met my boyfriend while travelling and now we are getting married. i find though certain nationalities i seem to get a long with more than others. i must admitt i hae nevr really made any good friends while travelling who english was their first language (thus i always end up the translator of the gang). We are currently planning a trip to israel partially just to visit all of the great friends we made in india.
