Should You Travel Alone or With a Friend?

If you travel alone, you will learn but if you travel with your friends then you will enjoy it. But there are some pros and cons to both types of travel. Don’t worry, let me explain it to you. Imagine, you are planning to go on a trek. It will take several days to reach your final destination. You will stay in a camp at different spots along the way.

Why You Should Traveling Alone (Pros)

The biggest benefit of traveling alone is that you will have so much time to think about your life. You can spend some time with yourself. You can analyze your life better while you are backpacking alone in the silence of nature. You will meet new people, you will see different customs and cultural variations, and you will observe nature more deeply and peacefully. This is the beauty of traveling alone.

Why You Shouldn’t Traveling Alone (Cons)

If you are traveling alone then you have to take care of everything all by yourself. You have to set up a camp all by yourself, you have to carry all the stuff all by yourself. What if you get in some physical trouble; at that time, you might think I shouldn’t have come alone.  

Things you should have before traveling Alone:

  • A BackPack
  • A Lighter
  • Knife
  • Sleeping Bag
  • Camping Tent
  • Torch
  • Power bank
  • Water Bottle
  • Trekking Shoes
  • Trekking Pole
  • One Waterproof Jacket
  • Mosquito Kill Spray
  • Extra pants
  • Extra pair of socks
  • Mittens (Gloves)
  • Camera
  • Some Snacks

You can get all this stuff online.

Why You Should Travel With Friends and Family:

But what if you plan your trip with your friends instead of going alone then things will be different. As we know the metaphor ‘’ Union is Strength’’ So, when you are with your friends you won’t have to do all the work by yourself. Tasks will be divided between friends.

Group Tasks:

  • Cooking
  • Set up the camp
  • Burn fire
  • Cutting vegetables
  • Wood collection
  • Night Watch

Activities you can do with friends and Family:

  • Bonfire
  • BBQ
  • Singing
  • Dancing
  • Playing Games (Not the ones you see in Horror Movies)

There are no Cons to Traveling with friends or Family. You will enjoy your trip still. If you like to do adventure then you should plan a vacation with your friends but if you are going with your family such as mother, Father, Kids and wife etc. then I would prefer that you should stay at a hotel.

 Do Not Camp with your family if there is any risk. Because family usually family choose comfort over adventure so with friends you should stay at camps but with family, Hotels are the best option.

If you have a vacation coming and you already planned your trip with friends, So, let me tell you few things you should get to make your experience much better.

  • Wireless Speakers
  • Hookah (Sheesha)
  • Vape
  • A Guitar (If you know how to play)
  • Drone
