When it comes to traveling, we have to decide if we want to go solo or have our trusting friends come along for the ride. There are definite benefits to each scenario. If you have travel companions, you will definitely have more brain power. That means some members of your group will be much more knowledgeable about a certain topic than others in the group. That can truly come in handy while traveling. Having your friends by your side will deepen the friendship you had, and make it so much better. Travel will literally broaden the mind, but traveling with friends will deepen friendship. You really get to know someone when you travel together, while discovering their strong suits and weaknesses. You will face adversity together, and possibly get on each other’s nerves. You will truly test your friendships. It can be quite the eye opening experience.
You will never be lonely if you have your close friends nearby. You will always have someone to converse with during those long bus rides and road trips, as well as just give you someone to share so many amazing experiences with. You probably won’t get homesick if you have a piece of home (your friend) with you. One important thing is to be safe, and traveling with friends you trust can keep you safer overall during your trip. The best thing about having people travel with you is that you get to save on travel expenses. You can share a hotel or transportation costs, as well as get incredible group discounts. Another perk to the buddy system is sharing clothes with others if you are the same size, so you’ll have more clothing options during your trip. It can definitely be intimidating to be outgoing if you aren’t an extrovert, but having your friends with you while you travel will give you a little comfort zone and a bit of confidence. Don’t forget about having a personal photographer. No more unintentional selfies, just amazing photographs that you can cherish forever! Have fun.
