If you have a maximum of A) your ideal travel friend is: Your friends 
Rather like a fiesta or meeting new people at any time, you love your friends and for you, there is nothing more exciting than organizing a trip with them. 

Sunbathing on the beach and discovering the city like real tourists during the day, and having a drink on the terrace at night, you love to spend these moments together. Between photos, anecdotes and laughter of all kinds, you create great memories to tell everyone when you get home. 

Of course not everything is exactly as you planned, between Jessica who wants to go shopping and Clara who is more the type to go for a walk in the forest, going on a trip with travel buddies can be complicated. But this is part of the unexpected events to anticipate when your travel the world. As a super mediator you always end up finding an arrangement that makes your friends the best travel friends to you!

If you have a maximum of B) your ideal travelling friend is: Your beloved one
You love your friends but travelling with them is always complicated. Whereas with your lover, it could not be simpler. He/she knows what you like or don't like and usually ends up giving you what you want. On top of that, in case of problems, you know that he/she will be good advice.

So when the holidays come, whether you need to get together or just want to spice up your life, your beloved is the one you think of.

You know them well and know the kind of activities they will be able to do with you. Whether it's a walk or a romantic day out, you always end up agreeing on an activity that both of you will enjoy...and for a more extreme stay, you can always go on your own to be fully satisfied!

If you have a maximum of C) your ideal travel friend is: Your pets
They mean everything to you, you can't live without them, Pepito, Peanut or Bubble, are always with you. Leaving without your faithful travel friends seems impossible.

You love moving and going on expeditions and know that they will always be there. A night stroll in the forest, a swim in the lake next door, they won't say no, and will follow you anywhere. That's why you prefer to go with your animals, who won't flinch after walking 100 km complaining about their shoes being damaged (yes Carla, you should have worn boots).

It's the same even when you’re just out of the bed, whatever time of day, they will be as enthusiastic as you are about the idea of going on an adventure. You find the perfect destination to go travelling alone and lets go. Moreover, when you practice couchsurfing, some hosts like to receive travellers with a pet (provided he is clean). So for you, the question no longer arises, if you had to choose your ideal travel friend, it would definitely be your beloved pet.

If you have a maximum of D) your ideal travel companion is: Yourself
For you, travel is the best way to recharge your batteries. You have your tips to travel alone as a woman and you can finally break away from your stressful everyday life, discover new horizons and meet new people. To do this, there is no point in going with someone who might jeopardise your stay or thwart your desires. As they say, you are never better served than by yourself, so why not discover this destination in France on your own. 

No one to tell us where to go, who to go with, we decide our planning according to ourselves and only ourselves and that's all the pleasure of going on holiday alone. It is also all the more easy to get in touch with the locals when you are alone, sleeping in a local's house rather than in a hotel, we only need to get in touch with them and have all the keys to discover the region at best. It's also one of the reasons that push you to go on solo trips.

In the end, your only travel friend is yourself and that suits you very well!
