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