2. And you can spend the entire flight chatting and planning, rather than sitting in silence beside a stranger.
3. Once you land and start exploring, getting lost is a fun challenge rather than a nightmare.
4. You don’t have to ask a stranger to take a picture of you...ever.
5. If you forgot something, chances are you’ve got a backup.
6. You’ll do, see, and experience far more than you would on your own.
7. You have voices of reason to make sure you buy only the ~very best~ souvenirs.
8. And you’ll have stories starting with “When we were in…” that will keep your bond alive for a lifetime.
