5 Reasons Why You Should Be Travelling With Friends

Travelling with friends is fun and I’ve got 5 reasons why you should do it more often. Some of the best moments and memories are created when travelling with friends. It’s a plan you look forward to and fondly start packing your bag. It’s a time when you get away from the world and just be with like-minded hysterical buddies. So, I stayed up all night thinking about the next day. I am not a morning person but that trek with my friends is what kept me awake at night. I didn’t even realize it. Oh and where I live, I got mosquito bites too so I guess that could be a reason too.

Travelling with friends is more than just memories

Travelling with friends

The best journey is when you’re travelling with friends

We’re not doing this for memories. We’re doing this to have a good time. To loosen up and taste life as it is. Adventure comes in small packages and sometimes in big ones too. Friends come in all packages. What are friends for? They lend a shoulder to cry on, they listen to you rant about their exes. They’ll fight with you and for you because they are the ones who make a difference. Want to know how friends make a difference? Then this Happy Friendship Day is a must read for you.

The great thing about travelling with friends is that the combination never gets old. So, what does travelling with friends do for you? Sit back and have a read at these 5 reasons.

  1. Fun & Excitement when travelling with friends

No matter what, it’s fun travelling with friends. You can do what you want without being told not to. Of course, you enjoy responsibly. You don’t want to overdo the enjoyment unless you’re absolutely sure you want to jump off a cliff. And land into a lake.

You laugh more than you should or normally can. The excitement of travelling with friends does that to you. It’s a great way to boost those feel-good hormones.

 

  1. Explore when travelling with friends

Exploring a new place is a cool option. Just don’t go into unidentified caves and turn your trip into the descent. As I mentioned before, you don’t want to overdo your enjoyment.

Memories are created but that’s just a small part of it. The best part is, at that time it’s just you, your friends and the new place. The new world that takes you away from your current world and this is a good thing. You are rejuvenated for the current mundane world again.

  1. Having your back when travelling with friends

This would seem a bit odd but it’s worth mentioning. When travelling with friends, you know they’ve got your back. If you need something, you friends won’t ignore it. They’ll figure out something, like a snack you forgot to bring with you. Or you hurt yourself; they’re around to help you through the trip.

Sometimes, situations could get worse and that’s the most when you need friends. So, friends have your back, at least the true ones. If you’re on a trek, or again on an exploration journey, you need true friends with you. So, choose wisely both your friends and the place you are going to.

 

  1. Bonding when travelling with friends

Travelling is a therapy for the soul. Its impact doubles when coupled with friends. Being at a completely off the grid place with friends other than the usual makes all the difference. The outdoors have a magical effect on me. The trees, the wind blowing, the presence of your friends; there’s no turning back from it all.

The bond that is created here just strengthens the unity. It’s a great experience out in the open and your friends happen to make it magical. You get to know your friends better than within the confines of walls.

 

  1. Gossiping when travelling with friends

There’s always that one person who will never be able to make it for the trip. We rant about them on the trip and swear to never call them again. But we never learn. They’re either busy, or married, or lazy…. or married.

Then there’s the other lot of people we love making fun of, the kind we imitate. They’re the ones we can never stop laughing about. Like the ones who always say a particular line when they talk. The ones who have a funny way of talking; they just make my day without even being there.

And there are some who just pretend to be excited but have no intention of coming. Really, I don’t know why they even say yes. It’s weird. That’s why it’s important to know about the difference between real and fake friends.

Let’s make it habit

So, travelling with friends is always fun, helps beat boredom and lets you explore cool places. They have your back, you bond with them and it is fun to gossip with them. Friendship day is the best time to gear up with those awesome friends of yours.

Why should you travel?

Travelling is therapeutic. With friends or even just the solitude travel, whatever it may be, it’s therapy for the soul. But how?

So, here are 5 reasons why you should travel at all.

  1. Some of us just want to escape –

And escape you shall! Because escaping is not a bad thing. If you’re searching for a way to run away from life’s temporary hiccups then hitting the road is your best bet. Just carry minimal stuff – money, basically. And rush out the house so you can escape mundane and enter into the outdoors. When you get back to reality, you’ll be glad that this was your escape. Beer and binge can only get you so far but travelling can give your mind the freshness to think new.

-Still love beer.

2. Some of us need to cheer up

Be it the dawn of day or the breezy twilight, travelling will simply make you smile from within. What’s more relaxing than that brief walk in the world we so often neglect due to our responsibilities and priorities? We’ve all been through the occasional mp3 and travel mode. It’s the best therapy that will take you into another world. Wear your sports shoes, plug in your favourite song and free your mind – go, cheer yourself up!

3. When your mind is fresh, your body is too

When you get back home after a rejuvenating time out, you feel fresh and eager to complete work where you left off. You are able to manage household work better. You will feel rejuvenated to get stuff done. What’s more? You’ll even remember what you forgot to do! For those who work at home, the activity of travelling proves to be beneficial as the essence of a fresh mind shows in your work and your ability to think effectively.

4. The perfect decision maker

Travelling helps you gain clarity on things. Coz if you can’t talk to yourself, you really aren’t gaining expert advice. While you travel, you’ve obviously been talking to yourself. You’ve been segregating your thoughts, analyzing important pent-up memories that need to be cleared up. But as you look at the world around, you quickly start to notice things around but as your mind is distracted by what’s going on around, your mind is also gaining a fresh perspective with your thoughts, with your distractions and with your ability to make decisions.

5. A good night’s sleep

Up next – sound sleep! As we’ve mentioned above, a fresh mind is followed by sound sleep. Yes, you feel fresh but after a few hours imagine yourself falling off to sleep with a positive mind. That’s what’s going to happen. While some can sleep without batting an eye, there are some who can only bat their eyelids and never fall asleep. But when you travel, you not only positively exhaust yourself, you utilize energy effectively. So, at night, your bed won’t know what hit it!

Now that you’ve got these 5 reasons, let nothing stop you. Pack yourself into your best comfy clothes. Be the stylish you that you are, get some cash, coz you’ve got to have some with you…duh. Wear your finest attitude and walk out the door. You’ll be happy you spent your day travelling with friends.
