If you´re going on a train, or plane, or bus, or whatever, don´t just put on headphones and block out the world. Carry an interesting book with you, and leave it in your lap for a while. It´s amazing how many people will start up a conversation because they´re intrigued by what you´re reading. Just make sure it´s not a bodice-ripper romance novel! Save those for when you´re not looking for company :)
