    Travelling with family or friends: Your preferences?

    What is your ideal company while travelling, your loving family or your rowdy friends? I know both have their certain advantages and disadvantages. Just want to know what do you prefer?

    actually this is a tricky question. Traveling with Family or Friends gives two entirely different experiences which cannot be compared. But I prefer traveling to adventure destinations with friends, where as when it comes to traveling to scenic places I prefer to travel with family.

    I'd say depends on the destination. Recently did a family trip to Italy and it was a blast. But if I was going to a place like Austin, Texas for a music festival, then I'm inviting my rowdy friends.

      It is, for example an adventure trip with your friends makes sense, however when you are in family there are certain limitations.

    i prefer to travel with my own family. Lots of topic to talk about and bad habits still goes on in the car. With friends, you will have to be polite and decent.

      In my case it is the exact opposite. With friends I can talk about and carry on my bad habits, but when it comes with my Family, I will be the most decent person on the planet smile

      two contrasting views peachpurple and georgescifo on this, we have to alter ourselves a bit to suit the ambience, I guess

    I would prefer to travel with my family as I enjoy being with them and we can talk of old times. I can also travel with friends but it will be on a separate occasion.

    I love traveling with my family.  It's fun to see my kids light up when they see something new and exciting!

    It depends on what the location of the vacation is! Both can have amazing advantages, and also both can have big disadvantages too! Friends can be a great time if you all have similar interest and similar mind sets. It can also make your friendship strained if you are not similar interest and natures.Rowdy friends can also be great if you are looking for a fun time to be had by all, and want some great entertainment. If you bring along a good group of friends be sure to bring the funny one the will help make you all laugh and keep you entertained. It can be better than any adventure that you all can have if bring along the right group with you, and will be talked about for years to come and memories will be made without any effort.
    When you travel with family it is building the bonds that you may or may not even have.  It can be a great yearly adventure or a random whimsical getaway, or a family reunion too! You can get the chance to see what makes your family bond tight and so great and build upon it. It can also be a challenging time if children are at ages that can be difficult fro them to be around all family and not their friends.
    So pick you travel destination and then decide what direction you want your travel companions to go in. Oh and it could be fun to explore new options and new things with so many great activities that can be found. If you should plan a trip tot eh Bahamas, then be sure to visit Start exploring today!

    It depends on the place and the nature of your family.

    To me , I would prefer traveling with my friends because I get to be very adventurous and social and have loads of fun when I am with them.

    As my family is not very adventurous, to balance my guilt , I make sure to with them to all the tranquil and devotional places.
