Travel friendships are uniquely different than any other type of friendships. People who don’t travel, or who have never bonded with other travelers on the road, might not realize how fast and deep travel friendships develop.

Now, experienced with long haul buses in Vietnam, I convinced the Londoner to take the bus with me instead of flying- insisting it was something he had to experience! He agreed. The other guy was going to take a day longer than us to get there since he was traveling by motorcycle, so, before we left the island, we all pre-booked our hostel in Ho Chi Minh and made plans to meet up.
Not many of the travelers I meet make it to Phu Quoc Island. When I tell people I went, they give me a look of disappointment and ask… “was it good?” hoping I’ll say it was crappy so they feel better about skipping it. My response is always the same “Sooooooo good! You should definitely go if you have the time!” Then I watch as their look of disappointment turns to longing envy.
