Some people like to travel with a companion. Other people prefer to travel alone. Which do you prefer? Use specific reasons and examples to support your choice.

People trip around the world with other people whom they have connections with. Some of those connections could be families, friends, or a couple. Traveling alone takes up a lot of risks and there are various reasons I do not prefer to travel alone. First, staying alone in a new environment alone is quite dangerous. Since you could be visiting that place for the first occasion, you would not be sure about this place and what is safe or not. Cultural differences might create misunderstandings between you and the people who live there. You can get lost during the tour, or might need to go to the hospital in an emergency. If you have a person who can help you in these situations, it will be mentally and physically safer than traveling alone. Second is the financial problem. For one person to handle the price of a plane ticket, the cost of a hotel room, and money used for shopping, food, and other necessities are a lot of money. However, if you have another person who is responsible for these prices, it will be less stressful for you. For instance, you can pay half of the hotel price. That is why young people travel with their friends - they can divide most of the prices by the number of people that they are going with. They become closer to each other and get less stressed about financial problems. Lastly, simply spending time with the ones you love is a precious thing as well. Creating memories that we want to keep forever does not get created all the time. Building a tighter and stronger relationship between people might be one of the reasons why we travel with other people. When I went to travel to Paris with my family, we had a wonderful time there and saw beautiful and famous tourist destinations to spend the time wisely. Now I will not forget all the happenings in France and the memories that our family made. Traveling with people is also seen as a chance for better relationships with people around me and a vacation that we all should enjoy when we go. If I go to another place alone, I will feel insecure and won’t enjoy the vacation fully as well. Traveling with other people is better than travelling alone and taking the risks.
