One of the travel benefits of solo trips is how you can meet new people and make new friends. But how do you approach them? How do you meet new friends during travelling? To add some new names to your travel diary, perhaps the best way to approach making friends would be to be amiable. Keep your phone aside and focus on your body language. With a big smile on your face, you can easily show efforts that you would like to meet new people and make friends. Eye contact is key and definitely something that would get you some new friends on your solo trip.
