Hi people of the internet!

I plan to travel to India in April and May 2019 and I'm looking for a travel bud during the first week or during any other time :-)

Love to travel on my own, but since India is not an easy one, and I've never been, I thought some company would be nice!

Hit me up if you plan to go during that time.

Also, I'll start my trip from Germany, if you will, too, that's perfecto!

Peace :)

India isn't particularly difficult. You'll meet lots of other travelers there so it will be easy to find companions once you get there.

Choose travel mates carefully. Look for those willing to explore and try new things, have a positive frame of mind (no chronic complainers), are trustworthy (they keep their word). Also look for those who watch your back and who aren't skinflints. I'd avoid gossipers and those who are judgmental. It's a tall order. But good travel companions will make your journey pleasurable and memorable. They make for lasting friends. Good luck!

Alexis, if would also be helpful to fill out your profile and offer up more information about your expectations for this trip. For instance, I'm guessing you might be female? Do you want to limit your companion to another female, especially if you intend to share/split the cost of a room?

Also, what are your interests - what do you intend to do and see on your trip - and what sort of accommodations are you going to be staying in? Hostels? Nice hotels?

Let's just say that I'd be really careful to manage the expectations of respondents to your post if you do not, say, want to share a room or a bed with a complete stranger of the opposite sex, end up with a companion who isn't at all interested in doing/seeing what YOU want to, or doesn't have the budget to travel in the style you expect to be.

India is a big country and it can be unbearably hot in April/May, so which bits are you planning to see/travel in during the two months?

Other than finding a travel buddy, you will find several Indians traveling from one place to another as you and it is an experience having a small conversation with Indian people. Indians are really interesting and fun loving people and love sharing their life, culture stories.
Though you need to be a bit careful because there can be a few who would like to take advantage of you (which in most cases is to have some money from you).
Regards

Yes, you'll find many Indians on holiday, too. For example, in the northern states, such as Himachal Pradesh, they travel on tortuous roads with motorbikes -- even bicycles -- to see some of the world's most spectacular mountain scenery.

Don't be surprised that quite a few local men will agree to travel with you. They also may expect you to share your bed with them and since you are wealthy perhaps pay for their time!

If you do meet any men who want to "accompany" you - do NOT meet them at your hotel room! Use a safe location to screen out the pervs and gigolos.

Do your normal travel research for how eat safely, what to do if you get sick, etc. Your own county will have some sort of information for scams, hygiene, safety and other concerns. Don't just show up without doing any research.

Good luck.
