Lonely Planet recently posted an article called "How To Travel With Friends (And Not Kill Them)". Having recently finished my trip with the excellent Alexandra, I agreed on some things... and not on others. Alexandra and I have similar personalities, but not the same interests - she did a lot more math and science, while I focused on the humanities, and we were excited about different places - I wanted to see Florence and she wanted to see Copenhagen. But we travelled well together. Spending every waking moment for a month with the same person isn't as suffocating as it sounds, I promise; we split up in Oxford a couple of times for a few hours and that was it. Just getting from London to Paris by myself without a companion seemed suddenly lonely and long. I wasn't ready to kill her by the time the trip was over - I wasn't even ready for it to be over!
Have you travelled with friends before? What was your experience like?
