20 Amazing Reasons Why You Should Go Traveling With Your Best Friends

20 Amazing Reasons Why You Should Go Traveling With Your Best Friends

Some say our friends can be closer to us than family. At crucial points this may sound true – friends make the most of the times we spend together with them… No wonder we share some amazing and memorable times with them! Going on a trip with a friend could unleash excitement that was holed up in you for a long time.

1. They make sure you stick to your budget

It could be because traveling gets cheaper in groups, or that you and your friends have to split costs. However, when you travel with friends the financial responsibility isn’t a burden for you alone.

2. You have various things to do

You could be stifled with doing things just your own way when you travel alone. But with friends you are not stuck to doing things a single way.

3. You can act as stupid as you want

From taking that selfie of ridiculous poses, to acting weird as a group in your hotel room or lobby, traveling with friends brings out the real and wild person in you.

4. You are excited about the journey

Traveling with friends can get you all pumped up and freaking excited. You are eager and all set up days, weeks or even months in advance.

5. It is an adventure from the moment you meet

The adventure doesn’t begin when you arrive at your destination. Rather, it starts when you and your friends connect or rendezvous for the trip.

6. There is so much to talk about during the trip

You have so much to discuss about, and it sorts of helps to pass the time and get you into each other’s business.

7. Experiencing new things with your friend is phenomenal

The pictures you take, the experience and the destinations you uncover, and the insights you garner are exciting and will always be memorable. This could always be a talking point for you and your friend during discussions.

8. There will be more risks with your friends

Friends are eager and want to try new things. With your friends you take on more risks and go beyond borders to making each other happy.

9. You will share the same opinion

With your friends there really is no generational gap, you have the same ideas on how things should be done. Your perspectives are not distant.

10. Traveling with your friends offer surprises

The truth is that the trip could go any way and that adds to the surprise. The spontaneity of events can shock you!

11. You can engage in activities meant for groups

Activities such as camping, rafting and trekking are best enjoyed with your friends.

12. Your night is like your day

With friends there is no sleeping early. There is so much activity to accomplish that you will need the night to plug into some of the fun available.

13. Traveling with your friends makes you know them better

Traveling with friends make you discover those things you really didn’t know about your friends. You see them from a different perspective and this will make you appreciate them the more.

14. Traveling with friends makes you reconnect with them

Let’s face it, we all live busy lives but traveling with friends kind of brings you back together.

15. Traveling with friends will bring back memories

With friends you remember a lot of things from the past as you joke about almost anything. Traveling with friends offers you periods of reflection.

16. They prompt you into self-examination

While traveling with friends you can see yourself from your friend’s eyes and self-examine yourself appropriately. They push you and get you into understanding yourself better.

17. They will be the best persons to get you out of a messy situation

There will be situations that could get out of hand when on a trip. Who is the most ideal person that could help you out of it? Definitely people that know you best and have your interest at heart.

18. You are more aware when you travel with friends

Traveling with friends endeavors you to have a clearer picture of how important your friends are and that they will always have your back in many situations. Life is a struggle and through some of the silliness you will know if your friends will support you or not.

19. You carry a fragment of home with you

With traveling, there could be some home sickness. You are in an unfamiliar territory and you wish you were at home snuggled up in bed. With friends around you, you have a piece of home with you that could offer some comfort and reassurance.

20. Traveling with friends provides you with the best photos in your albums

When you look at your photo album of pictures taken with friends during a trip, what do you see? You see hope, togetherness and truth. And that is enough to make you excited every now and then.

Going on a trip with friends should not be just talked about. It should be lived and experienced.

10 Inspirational Books That Can Change Your Life

10 Inspirational Books That Can Change Your Life

If you want to change your life, you are going to have to do things differently. Sometimes you can look to inspirational books to create a positive change in your life. If you desire change, you are going to have to step out of your comfort zone. As Anthony Robbins points out in the quote below, you are going have to experience discomfort and pain in order to transform your life. Any change, whether it be an organisation or personal, can be a painful process. However, the rewards of going through the change process are priceless.

“All personal breakthroughs begin with a change in beliefs. So how do we change? The most effective way is to get your brain to associate massive pain to the old belief. You must feel deep in your gut that not only has this belief cost you pain in the past, but it’s costing you in the present and, ultimately, can only bring you pain in the future. Then you must associate tremendous pleasure to the idea of adopting an empowering new belief” – Anthony Robbins

There are two specific events that threw my life into a tailspin, where for a while there it felt like I was losing control. These two events were, the sudden and tragic loss of my parents, and being made redundant three times in eighteen months.

With the third redundancy, I was at my lowest point in my life. I felt utterly useless. My self-confidence was at zero, and I could see no future for me.

My life was turned upside down. I knew that I had to turn it around. I just didn’t know how.

Then one wet Sunday afternoon, I picked up a book from my bookshelf called ,“The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brene Brown. I had this book for at least a year and had been meaning to read it, but hadn’t gone anywhere near a book for months.

When I read this book, I decided that I needed to get my life back. I needed to learn how to heal and rebuild my confidence, as well as my self belief.

So I started to read books. I read lots of books about inspirational stories on life, love, and happiness. Personal development and motivational books were full of information, tools, and strategies about how I could take control back and change my life. I would like to share with you the inspirational messages I got from reading these ten books that changed my life.

Read these 10 books because I believe they will inspire you, motivate you, and show you how to take action and go change your life!

    Awaken The Giant Within

    by Anthony Robbins
    The inspirational message from this book is how you have the power right now to control how you think, how you feel, and what you do. Anything you want or desire in your life, you already have the power to achieve it.

    “You and I have that same power at our disposal every moment of the day. At the moment, the questions that we ask ourselves can shape our perception of who we are, what we’re capable of, and what we’re willing to do to achieve our dreams” – Anthony Robbins

                      The Gifts of Imperfection

                      by Brene Brown

                      Do you ever feel that you are just not worthy enough, intelligent enough, or courageous enough to live a fulfilled happy life?

                      Do you have secret dreams that you hold deep inside of you that you don’t share in case someone thinks they are silly? Or are you too scared to follow your dreams because you fear that you may fail?

                      Brene Brown’s book, “The Gifts of Imperfection”, will show you how to find your courage, as well as rediscover your self-belief and self-worth.

                      This is the book that will get you prepared to embark on your journey of change. “The Gifts of Imperfection” is about you learning how to let go of who you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are.

                      “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy — the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” – Brene Brown

                      These 10 books were key to helping me change my life. I rediscovered hope for my future. I found my courage, strength, and my self-belief. I hope that by reading these books, you will find the same inspiration and motivation to take up the challenge and change your life.

                      “If one reads enough books one has a fighting chance. Or better, one’s chances of survival increase with each book one reads.” – Sherman Alexie
