Everyone loves to unwind and explore new places and see new things. We
absolutely love vacations whether we’re alone, with friends or with our
When choosing with whom to travel, some people prefer traveling alone
because there are fewer hassles and conflicts and they don’t have to be
responsible for anybody else. It could also mean a special time alone for
themselves to not just relax but also for some self reflection and soul
searching. But traveling alone can have its drawbacks. There is nobody to look after
your things just in case you need to go somewhere else, but on the other
hand you will be open to the possibility of making new friends. Let’s face it,
you have no choice but to make friends 🙂
Another option is to travel with friends, which is a lot of fun, you get to
know more about them because you get to share more experiences
together and these strengthen your connection with them. Spending
vacations with friends needs a lot of considerations and compromises though-
from selfie or groupie time, where to stay, where to eat, what places to visit,
and budgeting. These sometimes cause problems but who cares when in
exchange of these are lots of fun and adventure.
In our view, the best option and most important of all, is spending your
vacation with family. It may entail a lot of hard work and just like traveling
with friends, there can be a lot of issues..
Time is usually an issue especially if other members of the family have
different activities and break time- this needs to be worked out even if it
means stealing time away from work or school. Besides, we all need
quantity of time to be able to spend quality time with our families.
Petty arguments may pop up along the way. From what places to go to,
what souvenirs to take home, time management, what to eat and where,
and sometimes you’re caught between having fun and getting worried over
the cost of your vacation. Issues like
these are inevitable but you would eventually realize, you are traveling to
relax, have fun and delight in your bonding time. At the end of the day, you
are one as a family and everything is “figure out-able”.
And volunteering as a family will even draw a family closer together and much more,
create fond memories you will cherish, and make a lasting difference together. Family
vacations are healthy. You and your family will definitely benefit from a well-
deserved break that combines sightseeing with volunteering.
