It is inevitable, isn’t it? Friendships end at home as they do abroad. The difference is, perhaps, being in constant movement or adjusting to being in a new country, so it feels different. The reality is, making friends while traveling can be a matter of timing. Maybe you happen to be in the exact same city at the exact same time and it feels extremely aligned. On the flip side, maybe you find yourself 1,000 miles away and entirely disconnected from the people in your new home. Or maybe it is a mixture of the two. 

The best way to go about it is not to over-attach when making friends while traveling. Treasure the moments, jokes, and memories and take them for what they are. Everyone is on a journey while traveling, so it seems right to be in flow rather than forcing friendships to fit a particular form that may no longer exist.
