The real world is such that anyone can need a travel partner for any or no reason at all. So here at Globetrooper we connect you with those other free spirited adventurers around the world that want the same rewards from travel that you do.

I plan to travel through Cambodia and Vietnam then fly from Hanoi to Kuala Lumpur on the 6th June before flying back to London on the 8th. If this trip sounds like fun then talk to Daniellelowe about this trip to Asia.
San Francisco Road Trip
Ahh the thrill and excitement of the open road, Meredith has planned a trip driving to San Francisco and is looking for travel partners. I’m road tripping to visit friends in San Fran.
I am planning on living out of my car (a tiny honda civic) I haven’t taken many long term road trips like this.
But I also like the idea of stopping at hostels to meet people, and also to get showers and such. If you like the look of this road trip then contact Meridith to discuss the trip.
Journey Across Thailand and India
Colonial is looking for a companion to travel across Thailand and India in 2012. He is looking for a similar (down to earth) partner as companion (friend), share experiences and support.
If you would like to see India and Thailand why not get in touch and discuss the trip.
How to Get Involved With These Top Trips Around The World
All these trip ideas have been suggested by needy travelers looking for adventure companions and partners. It is important if you like the sound of any of these trips or the wider travel opportunities on Globetrooper to reach out to the trip proposer as soon as possible.
Be certain to inquire about costs and timings, flights and hotel arrangements if applicable. It is also a good idea to meet in advance if you are in the same country or definitely talk via phone or email.
Remember its not just about the trip, ideally each traveler should have a little in common and be able to ‘get on’ well.
Do not meet anyone that you have never met before without affirming their identity and get to know them before you do meet for the first time. Most importantly enjoy planning your trip and be sure to report back. We are always eager to hear about completed trips not just those that are in the planning stages.
