Actually, Ralph makes an important point. We're traveling between 6-10 months a year for the past eight years. About half of the time is spent independently wandering between hotels scattered around the world and half is spent on cruise ships.

While, on occasion, we travel with a couple of friends (changes from trip to trip), most of the non-ship travel is just the two of us. While on ships, we actually have the ability of having what pretends to be a social life with people around which we can talk to. Occasionally, we luck out and find people who we end up traveling with in the future and we now have friends scattered world-wide - many of whom started as traveling companions and a small handful started as "locals" who we started chatting with.

So yes - the people you travel with can make a substantial difference in your enjoyment of a trip.
