It is often said that it doesn’t matter where you go but who you travel with. Travelling with friends gives you the freedom to experience things which you wouldn’t necessarily try with partners, family or even while travelling solo. But why let the destination be of ordinary make? We at TM2TW are here to ensure that the destination is as awesome as the company you travel with.
Experience a country through its festivals, a perfect showcase of its creativity, diversity and culture. To get a taste of the wild food of the West Coast of New Zealand, head to Hokitika Wildfoods Festival; but we should warn you, this one is not for the weak hearted gourmets! Or if art is more your calling, hobnob with international and local artists at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, an international exhibition of contemporary, traditional folk and classic art with exhibits from across mediums including paintings, sculpture, installations, performance art, film and new media. Indulge in some mischief during Holi – the festival of colors as you douse each other in dyes and colored water or dance the night away with your friends at one of New Zealand’s groovy music festivals, ranging from indie festivals, to ones where you have no clue about the musical lineup, the ‘non-festival’, or the one which brings together artistes from across the globe.
Escape into the natural environs witnessing a glorious sunrise in your hot air balloon as it makes a gentle ascent over stunning vistas. End the day camping under an ethereal starlit sky with all your friends sitting around a warm bonfire. Experience alternating feelings of excitement and fear as you embark on one of the most dangerous treks in India-the Chadar trek in the Zanskar valley of Ladakh or feel like a modern day Tarzan as you walk across one of Meghalaya’s fantastical living root bridges, massive roots intermingled to form a bridge.
For strengthening old bonds and creating new ones, for letting your hair down, for creating fond and embarrassing memories, for phenomenal experiences, travel with your friends.
