In modern society, people's sense of value has been extremely diverse, and many people have their own favorite way to travel. Some people like to travel with a companion, while others like to travel alone. As far as I am concerned, I like to travel with a companion. I will discuss three reasons in this essay.
First and foremost, I like to discuss with friends about what I feel. I like listening to music, and I always go to a live house and listen to a live music when I travel. After the live performance, I usually have a conversation with a companion about what we feel and think through listening the music.In most cases, there is significant difference between I and my friend. For example, when I went to Chicago with a friend of mine, we went to a jazz live house. I was strongly moved by the drummer's dynamic play while my companion was most impressed by the vocalist's sensitive voice. I think these discussion interesting, because I can understand what other people concentrate on when they are listening to music. In contrast, when I trip alone, this is impossible, and I want to talk about it.
Second, since I am not so good at reading maps, I feel nervous when I trip alone. When I got lost when I was tripping alone in Thailand, I was so upset because I did not know even how to ask the way. I could not understand what other people were saying and I strongly felt that I should not trip by myself. In contrast, I do not become so much panic when I am with a companion. I can calmly think how to go back. This difference of confidence is important in order to have a fine trip.
Third, I think making friends in other countries is much more easier when I get out with a companion.I think making foreign friends is one of the most valuable things of having a trip aboard. I always feel shy when I have to talk to other people even when I am in my own country. In contrast, psychological barrier to talk to a stranger will be much lower when I am with a companion. Traveling with a companion is much more efficient way to make friends in foreign countries for me.
For these reasons, I prefer to trip with a companion.
