    Traveling is well know as an amazing way to get rid of stress, sadness, worries, etc. Starting a journey with the family or friends, will bring to our life hapiness. Although, it is important to realise with whom we enjoy the most and the benefits that it will bring us.

    Some people think that traveling is about visiting famouse places, going to parties, drinking a lot etc. However, it depends on your personals interestings, and the ones with whom you travel. for instance, if we travel with our family, they probably will be interested in visiting historical buldings like me. In the other hand, parties will be part of the journey, if we travel with friends.
    Accomodation is an imprtant factor to consider, one of the best ways to acquire the culture is staying with a host family. While that may be true, staying in a hotel could be a better idea if we talk about “privacity”

    To sum up, I believe with whom you decided to go on holidays, should be according to your expectations and personality. On my personal point of view, taveling with the family is a better since we can make stronger the family ties with a journey.

      Good structure and organisation Diana. Just some spelling errors to be careful of:

    Travelling is for me one of the best things in life. I have been in more than twenty countries and I have a lovely memory of each one of them. I was lucky as I could travel with family and friends -separately afortunately- I couldn’t give a right answer as I had pros and cos on each of my trips. With family I don’t need to be worried about the money so I can eat the meal I want and buying some souvenir is not a problem at all. But with friends I had fun as we could hang out and discover for example the differents beers the country/city offers to us, also we always have more energy for exploring different cities or new countryside routes. However if you travel with friends (being young) forget stay in decent hotel or hostels and be prepared to eat sandwiches as we usually don’t have enough money for.
    Another thing is the difficult decision of where we going, family usually prefer going to a cultural trip and in my family the proximity is a positive point, and with friends it’s totally different the farther away and more exotic the destination is the more it awakens our interest.
    Anyway wherever travelling is not a waste of money, it is a life investment. So let’s travel!

    In regard to a recent discussion about trips which are an excellent way to get rid of stress, some people have different points of view, if they would rather go with friends than family.

    Firstly, it is essential to find out what sort of activities you prefer, for example, if you go with relatives it is hardly impossible to go for extreme sports because some people are old. On the other hand, with your friends, you will enjoy thrilling sports like downhill or kayaking.

    Secondly, accommodation is another important factor to consider, one of the best ways to have privacy is a hotel, but also it depends on your budget or if you love green space as much as mountains you must use a camping tent.

    Finally, transport is so important since in some cases bikes are used by people when they go with friends, whereas with family they travel by bus or car depending on the number of people.

    To sum up, I believe with whoever you decide to travel do not forget to plan your trip in advance, and the most important it should be according to your expectations and personality.
