When traveling, the companions you pick are as vital as the places you decide to travel to. After all, they can either make your trip the best or worst traveling experience ever. So be wary of who you travel with and make sure you include one of the people on this list with you on your trip:

  1. The Human Compass

    Do you have a phobia of getting lost on a trip? Are you afraid to stray from tours and explore because you're nervous about making your way back? With the human compass by your side, you don't have to worry. This person is naturally savvy with the ways of the wild, knowing which way is north by looking where the moss grows on a rock, the direction of the wind, or through the stars.  The human compass also has a knack for reading maps, so rest assured that traveling with this person can help you discover more places without fear of getting lost.

  2. The Foodie

    Sure, the sights and the sounds are a core part of traveling, but another important way of learning about a place's culture is through food. The foodie knows the best dishes to eat and where to find them, whether it's a five-star restaurant or a hole-in-the-wall eatery, so you'll never be hungry. You'll be able to taste all the best local food, giving your palate an unforgettable experience. If food is your number 1 agenda when traveling, you and the foodie will definitely get along. 

  3. The Photographer

    One reason we travel is to see what the world has to offer and make memories. One way of recording our memories is through taking as many photos as possible. If you travel with the photographer, you can breathe easy because all your experiences will be carefully documented in high quality photos that will instantly transport you back to that place just by looking at them.
