We love trying to interact with people when we travel. Lorenza knows full well that I will try and strike up a conversation with almost anyone on the road.
Mind you my English is terrible because I speak with such a broad Australian accent. My French is almost non existent, despite my many attempts to get past the basics. I know only a few words in a smattering of South East Asian languages, most of which get a few laughs.
I always seem to manage to make a lot of new friends. I think this is because most people want to be happy and have fun with each other.
