For reasons both silly and serious, going on an expedition with your best friend is one of the healthiest, powerful and fun things to tick off your bucket list.
Intense, hilarious and unforgettable. There’s nothing quite like traveling with your best friend. You’ll create so many crazy and hysterical memories together, and having somebody who’s there for you no matter what will give you the confidence to relax and revel in the journey.
Here are seven reasons to get out there with your best friend RIGHT NOW.
1. Let’s face it; the excitement level will be MAX.
Traveling with your BFF will get you all pumped up and freaking excited. You will be psyched with all the planning, the places to visit, the outfits to carry, the pre-trip shopping and so much more! And the plus point is that the adventure doesn’t begin when you arrive at your destination, it starts the minute you and your besties rendezvous for the trip, right from the planning stage.
2. Traveling with friends makes you reconnect with them, like never before.
Away from the mundane world and the hustle bustle of your daily life, when you face new challenges on the trip and when you cherish in the peaceful setting, you and your best-friends will connect and bond like never before. You’ll get the time to speak your heart out, make confessions, sort over pending issues and make up for brawls, without any external intrusion.
3. Even ordinary experiences become extraordinary with your BFFs.
The pictures you take, the experience and the destinations you uncover, and the insights you gather are exhilarating and will always be memorable. Ordinary mundane experiences like eating up piping hot Maggi in the mountains can become incredibly fun and unforgettable with your best friends. You’ll have a treasure trove of experiences to recount, recollect and laugh over later.
4. You can act as crazy as you want.
From clicking pictures in ridiculous poses to acting weird as a group in your hotel room or lobby, traveling with friends brings out your wild side and reveals the real person within you.
5. It’ll give you stories to tell and lean on for years.
Travel sagas are a great way to break the ice when the two of you meet new people, and they’re guaranteed to generate some genuine laughs. But more importantly, these shared experiences are what the two of you can reminisce about forever. And when you don’t live near enough or move on in life, drowned in the responsibilities of adulthood you both will treasure these shared experiences.
6. The trip will get you ready to take on anything afterward, together as a team.
The time you missed your flight and had to sleep in a shady hotel, the time you got a sudden food craving and combed the entire market at midnight or the time you both got lost in a random forest without any network – once you’ve conquered a travel disaster with your best friend, you know you can make it through anything together.
7. You carry a fragment of home with you.
They are your little piece of normality when you’re missing home. With traveling, there could be some homesickness. You are in an unfamiliar territory and you wish you were at home snuggled up in bed. With your best friends around; you have a piece of home with you that could offer some comfort and reassurance.
After all, home is where the heart is.
