Celebrating a special occasion or planning an important event with friends or any group of people, usually means going out for a couple of drinks and then a dinner.
Maybe you’ll squeeze in some dancing and a cake, but that would be it. It would be one night of celebration of the special day and the next day is spent dealing with the hangover.
More often than not, we are left feeling low because the special day went by too soon and the celebrations didn’t last long.
However, what if you fly down to another country or take a road trip to some unknown destination, just to celebrate your special day or turn that picnic into a three-day mini, celebratory trip with your friends?
This will give you and your friends a real chance to bond, more than a night of celebration and not to forget, a new place to tick off of your travel bucket list.
If you need a reason to travel, then here are a few occasions that you should definitely plan to travel on.
Going for drinks, dinner and then cutting a cake for dessert at your favorite restaurant is something you can do any weekend. Celebrate your birthday with some travel plans with your friends or family.
Pack your bags, hire a car and get on the road to celebrate not just a day’s worth of your birthday, but make an entire week or weekend of it. You can either fly down to a new country, state or take a small road trip to a nearby hiking place.
2. Corporate Away Days
If you’re at a managerial position and conduct regular team building activities, then you should definitely try out traveling with your team instead of having a one-day team building event.
Taking the team out for a trip will get the team members to bond better and have more fun. Travelling brings with it a set of challenges which will enable the team to come together and overcome these challenges while also having a good time.
Nowadays, more and more organizations are taking the route of traveling with their teams as a form of team building exercise. On this trip, you can plan different team building activities for the team members to enjoy and benefit from.
3. Reunions and Get-togethers
Family get-togethers or reunions which last as long as a dinner reservation, doesn’t sound like the ideal way to catch up with friends and all that’s going on in their lives.
Why not instead make a road trip of it and explore a new place? Traveling with your friends or family members will truly get you in the reunion mood and give your entire group a lot of time to talk, laugh, have fun and make lots of great memories together.
4. The Last Night of Freedom
Whether it’s a hen night or stag night, taking a trip with your pals to celebrate the last days of being single, is the most popular idea in today’s day and age. More and more bachelors and bachelorettes are planning stag and hen weekends to celebrate an entire weekend of their singlehood.
Traveling makes for a more memorable and fun hen and stag party than just a single night of drinking and dancing. Traveling for your stag or hen do means doing more than just drinking. You can try the local cuisine, do some fun sports activities, go shopping, drink, dance and much more with your stag or hen gang.
Traveling is a great way to learn new things, meet new people and bond better with your old pals. It gives you new experiences, new people to meet, lovely memories to make and explore something you’ve never seen before. Don’t forget that it’s the best and the most popular way to rejuvenate, refresh and inspire yourselves.
You shouldn’t need a reason to pack your bags and travel because the many things you haven’t seen in the world should be reason enough to travel. However, if you need a push then the next time you’re planning to treat your friends to dinner in lieu of a special occasion, pack your bags and book your air tickets instead.
