Hi!! I'm a 27 to be 28 year old who's had enough of the boring lifestyle of doing nothing!! Its been a dream of mine to travel, not just to one particular place but to many. I've never travelled alone and was wondering do people, I mean strangers, travel together?? Is there such a thing??

I haven't travelled with complete strangers, as in getting in contact online and meeting up somewhere and taking off togeather. But people do do that so maybe someone can give you info on that :)

I have however travelled with people I've met on the road, for example I once picked up 3 cute canadians in a thai 7-11 and we stuck togeather for 3 weeks, and then I even went to Canada and stayed with one of my travel buddies for 2 weeks.
If youre friendly and open to meeting new people you shouldn't have any touble meeting people on the road, just use your instinct and stay away from the creeps :)

Hello Scruffy:)

Yeah strangers travel together. Sometimes I travel with people I meet and like. It is usually temporary and then we go our own ways. Sometimes we decide to go someplace else together and other times decide to travel a bit together. I would generally not blindly choose somebody from the internet to travel with for a whole trip. Possibly I would meet somebody from the internet for a coffee or something and see how I get along with them. But only if I enjoyed chatting with them on the internet.

If u are interested in finding a travel companion on the internet there is a whole forum on this site dedicated to it so u could post there and see what happens.
