“As your life evolves, so should your circle” has been rightly said and if you think of it, friends fit perfectly in the category of our chosen family. We spend time with them because we enjoy their company in every little thing we do together. Each travel experience small or big, comes with its own astounding memories. Sharing these experiences of exploring new cultures, meeting new people and discovering new places with your chum can add thrill to your journey.
Traveling with your friends can not only make the journey more memorable but it also helps you build a deeper relationship with them. It is that time when u spend few straight days with people you generally interact with few hours max at one time. You will get to see the best and worst of them, only to help you understand them better. Getting such an opportunity in your regular routine will be a rare opportunity.
The adventurous part of traveling in a group is you get to experience and explore a bit of everyone’s interests. The combined package deal will lead you to pathways which you might not have taken voluntarily in the first place. Also, in most cases, you will find at least one person in the group that will push you to come out of your comfort zone and experiment further. It can be trying a new cuisine or taking up an adventure sport or something else.
Travel time is something which always feels longer no matter how well you are prepared for it. However, traveling in good company will make your transit short with an extra dose of entertaining commentaries and gossip back home. Moreover, it saves your effort to compile a playlist or carry additional stuff like books, iPad etc. for passing your time.
The best part of the experience is saving in on all the cash. Traveling in groups will have major impact on your accommodation and transportation expenses. Now who isn’t happy with a few extra bucks to spare. Apart from above it is easier to look for deals while booking for a group rather than individual bookings.
You are absolutely done with requesting strangers to click your pictures or manage and setup a tripod every time you intend of getting a portrait shot of yourself. Above all, that weird smile when you fear, that the person you requested runs away with your phone or camera. Your travel buddy will not only help you with your entire portfolio but might also capture some candid moments which will make you smile back in time.
All the trips you share together will give you memories for life. No matter how far friendships go, you will always have these shared moments to look back in time. Over a period, it builds relationships to such extent that silence will also be a magical mode of communication. Spending few over the weekend is something that keeps you going until next time. Imagine the fun that would go along with spending few days in your best company.
