We appear to be at opposite extremes here. This works out OK for me personally, considering I often get sick when exposed to many people at once. But that's not the reason for lack of wedding invitations. My sister hasn't been invited to more than I have, even without my specific problem.
Odds of meeting countrymen in foreign places are quite low. You pass a whole lot of people but will of course take much more notice of countrymen, forgetting the horde of locals/tourists from other nations. You will also visit tourist destinations making it very likely the locals are underrepresented. I've been to Tunisia, Turkey, Portugal, France and England and the only place I didn't meet any Norwegian that did not travel with me was in France. When abroad, Norwegians will more often strike up conversations with other Norwegians than at home.
