A small group of people you don’t know getting to know each other through travel by going on a group trip together

Keywords: group trip , group trip organizer , itinerary planning , Travel

Some of my best friends became even closer after traveling together and I met so many amazing friends during my time studying abroad. I went on my study abroad not knowing a soul but it was an amazing way to expand my horizons beyond the actual travel I was doing. Who knows, you may meet your bestie that you never knew existed by going on an epic group trip with me as the group travel organizer! (By the way, the groups aren’t too large, typically between 10-20 other passionate travelers.)

No one knows a location better than a local. Instead of spending all of your time in a tourist-heavy area, allocate time to spend where the locals hang out. Nine times out of ten you will discover something about the place that few people who don’t live there get to see.

Curious Artifact

So many people use vacation and travel interchangeably, and that is perfectly okay! However, if you wanted to get nitpicky, there is a difference, and it can mean the difference between relaxing in a new place to having the experience of a lifetime.

If you want to lounge on the beach, eat curated meals in a fancy restaurant, stay at a highly popular hotel or all of the above, it will undoubtedly be an incredible vacation. BUT if you truly want to see the world, experience how others live, and immerse yourself in a new culture you might have to forego those and throw them out the window for something completely different, but even more incredible.

You might be thinking, “but…Emma? I don’t know how to travel. I’ve only ever vacationed. What do I do?” Good news. I’m here to help.
