Traveling with your best friends will cause some of the most memorable moments of your life. These travels don’t mean ocean jumping or plane hopping, it can simply be a weekend on the road discovering new places. Not only will the experience be down right amaze-balls, but it will also help you all discover yourselves in a time when life can be confusing, difficult and emotional. Travel saved me, and it wouldn’t have without these lessons.
As much as travel is soul-searching and discovering with friends, it’s also pretty crazy. Good crazy. Like go home and write down all of your inside jokes that made you almost pee yourself crazy. You’ll look back and say “we did that?!” and reminisce next to a summer fire about how insane you all must be.
So if you have yet to take a trip with your friends, get prepared. If you have experience, I think we can all relate. Here are 14 things you learn when traveling with your best friends.
1.You’re all crazy
But that’s not a bad thing
2.“Hangry” is a legit mood
GET ME A BURRITO.
3.Thou shall not trust the directionally challenged
That’s literally the complete opposite way we need to go.
4.The last day you’ll probably end up looking like a crack-whore
It’s been a long week.
5.One of you is bound to fall flat on your face
Most likely in a crowded and public place
6.You’ll create your own language of inside jokes and sayings
Herp de shcmerp de blurp.
7.None of you should be allowed in public
Realized at the moment you’re all trying to convince the secret service to play tag football with you.
8.More embarrassing photos of you will exist than ever imagined
“How many double chins you say? Wow, I’m talented”
9.You all have different travel wants/needs
The adventurer, relaxer, shopper, sightseer and culturist.
10.You’ll probably want to kill each other at some point
Most likely when you’re hangry.
11.Each of you can make an inhumane noise
Mine? A pterodactyl.
12.You’re probably the messiest group of people alive
I FOUND YOUR SHOE…in the pretzel bag
13.It’s a good thing not many mental institutes still exist
No that straight jacket doesn’t look comfy…
14.You have the coolest friends in the world
