One of the best parts of being a solo traveler is meeting new people with incredible stories to tell. If you decided to postpone your travel plans for this year, here’s how you can still make special connections with passionate travelers around the world.

Social Media

You’re probably following many fellow travelers on Instagram, and now’s the perfect time to reach out to them and share your experiences. You can also join many travel-themed Facebook groups that will connect you with people who share similar interests.

Learning New Languages

It can be difficult to learn a new language when you’re not able to use it on a regular basis—but there are apps for that! Tandem and Bilingual allow you to improve your speaking skills by getting in touch with native speakers.

Travel Apps

If you’re not in the mood to learn a new language, but still want to use modern technology to your advantage, travel-themed meeting apps are also an option. Backpackr and Couchsurfing can help you plan your future trips and meet new people at the same time.
