1. The fun starts the second you meet for your flight.

That moment when you all arrive at the airport — bright-eyed and ready to begin your adventure as you all complain about how you ~totally overpacked~ — is the best way to kick off any vacay.

2. And you can spend the entire flight chatting and planning, rather than sitting in silence beside a stranger.

You won’t have a second to be bored.

3. Once you land and start exploring, getting lost is a fun challenge rather than a nightmare.

You can all laugh about it...and mayyybe grab a drink while you figure out how to get back on track.

4. You don’t have to ask a stranger to take a picture of you...ever.

Plenty of hands on deck for solo shots and group selfies!

5. If you forgot something, chances are you’ve got a backup.

That hair straightener never seems to actually make it into your suitcase, does it?

6. You’ll do, see, and experience far more than you would on your own.

You OBVIOUSLY don’t want to be the one who says no or chickens out.

7. You have voices of reason to make sure you buy only the ~very best~ souvenirs.

Friends help ensure you're only picking one-of-a-kind finds.

8. And you’ll have stories starting with “When we were in…” that will keep your bond alive for a lifetime.

Shared travel memories never fade. ❤️
