It’s always fascinating to hear of tales of friendship sparked by solo journeys to faraway lands. But what if you aren’t a social butterfly and need a little extra help in making friends with other travellers? The Penroads application does just that.
We realised that we could start making friends before, or even while planning, a trip. Here’s how to do it: simply key in your travel destination, arrival and departure dates, and the app will show you a list of travellers whose travel plans coincide with yours. All it took us was a few seconds and we had a list of potential friends and travel buddies awaiting our trip.
With this app, we embraced the concept of social travelling and could make plans with people we’ve never met in the flesh- yet. The app’s chat room function enabled us to make contact with our new found friend(s), where we can then discuss travel itineraries and plan for activities together.
So join the community with us to seek out adventures with other soloists travelling to your destination!
