Traveling is the best way to touch with the world. People go on a journey either with themselves or with friends by different reasons. In my view, I prefer to travel with a companion because of the safety, the cost and the memory.
First, be secure and safe is the first priority when people travel abroad. Especially in some rural area, there are poor public security which people should stay at home at night. When we confront with the danger situations, like robbing or trafficking crash, friends can help us go through the difficult time and calm our intensive nerve down. During the Europe travel, I had a drunk man following and yelling at me with no reason. Until my friends gathered around me, he stopped scary behaviors. Therefore, more people, more power.
In addition, friends can share the cost and expense. People are inclined to try or buy anything new and special on abroad but our traveling funds are limited. In the Disneyland, the presents and meals they offer to the tourists are high expensive. Therefore, my friends shared the cost that is a financial burden to me. We had various cartoon combos and we collected a variety of balloons. Besides, the cost of accommodation is one of factors that increases our expense. While there are more friends traveling with us, we can host in the fancier hotel or Airbnb. We can have a nice sleep and gain energy for tomorrow’s schedules.
Lastly, traveling with friends can enhance the friendship. Although the trip to Seattle has been five years ago, my friends and I still have a lot to share and the conversation reminds us of laying on the grass in the Green lake and watching the view of city on the Space Needle. We are waiting our next trip together.
In summary, travelling with a companion makes us safe and less-stressed when crashing into the unexpected accidents. It helps us try different meals and sleeps well without limited funds. Also, our friendship can be intensified by constant small talks.
