Traveling is fun regardless of what your situation may be: solo, couple or with your family. However, relationships just come and go and moments that used to be shared with special people immediately become forgotten.

Ten Reasons Why One Must Have A Circle Of Travel Buddies
The next time you decide to go and explore somewhere new, why not tag along one, two or even a handful more of your equally-travel-addicted friends?
1. They know exactly what it is you are going through
When you find yourself bitten by the travel bug, it often becomes hard to rid yourself of it. And the only way to cure yourself? Traveling once more. Even though your family find it annoying that you are constantly out of the house, you know that you have travel buddies who understands you.
It’s more than just the endless reading of travel blogs while at work, hoarding of travel books or taking of beautiful pictures, it’s about finding people who knows exactly how it feels to always be out and about.
2. They keep make things fun during down time
We’ve had our fair share of traveling as a family but you know what makes long rides, changed plans and boring nights more fun and exciting? Your travel buddies! It is always a comforting feeling to know that you have other people to engage in a conversation with, serious or otherwise. Your significant other and your kids might keep things fun and entertaining during down time but it’s also great to have others around.
3. They keep you on your toes
Having a circle of travel friends will most likely mean that adventure plans are not a scarcity. In fact, you may have already booked and planned up to a year’s worth of trips even before you have gone home from your most recent one. Perhaps the only negative thing about having friends addicted to travel is that they constantly bug you to go out even if your budget says otherwise.
4. They make adventures cheaper
5. They help plan out your trips
If you are the type who meticulously plans and looks over the itinerary and other details of your trip, rejoice, because you now have a handful of people who can help do the planning for the rest of the group. Instead of doing everything from scratch, you can simply ask for suggestions on where to go, eat or sleep and just collate those ideas together. You might even assign the entire task to someone else and let the group do a “review” together before giving the trip a go.
6. Your travel buddies make struggles a little easier to bear
We love hiking and trekking, but it is not always an easy path to take. True, your significant other may be able to give you words of encouragement when the going gets tough because you are just so used to it that you would rather ignore them. Having friends around helps you boost your energy in a way that your spouse might not be able to. Perhaps it is because you do not want to be the laughing stock and the center of all those embarrassing stories that are sure to go on for years.
