Good To Have Companions

Another cool proverb I learned from the Japanese kids TV show, Nihongo de Asobo:

旅は道連れ世は情け

tabi wa michizure
yo wa nasaké

I couldn’t find a good, modern translation of this online, so I read some online dictionaries in Japanese.  Basically, this little proverb means that when traveling, it’s really good to have a companion.  Especially in the old days when travel was dangerous, having a friend or traveling companion would really make a difference.

Long story short, it’s always more fun to travel with friends.  🙂
