You’ve heard the old quote..."There is strength in numbers”. Well, there is also a heck of a lot of fun in numbers, especially when you travel with like-minded and fun- seeking friends and family members. Unless you are planning a honeymoon, anniversary trip, or simply a romantic getaway for two, you might want to consider asking a few friends, family members or clients to join you on a trip. Here are several reasons why it can really enhance your experience:
● When a work-related group, such as an Accounting firm, gets away from the stresses of the office at the end of tax season, they get the chance to blow off some steam and make fantastic memories together. That can lead to happiness in the workplace, and even improve the long-term employee retention numbers in the firm. The company that plays together...stays together!
● Extended families often live miles apart and the average family with children usually has such an incredibly busy schedule that it is often impossible to enjoy each other. It is becoming more and more common for a member of the family– usually a grandparent – to spearhead (and sometimes pay for) a multi- generational family group to get away together. Often, grandparents would rather enjoy the vacation and experience of having all of their children together now than leave them the money later.
● It’s also becoming more popular for groups of friends to get away together. Especially friends who have kids the same ages! How much fun would it be to have the kids all playing together at the beach or pool while the adults enjoy a cocktail and a little adult R&R. If there are older kids involved, they can even take turns watching the younger ones while the grown ups go out for a rare childless dinner. There are built-in playmates for both the youngsters and the adults alike!
So, have I inspired YOU to get a group together for your next adventure? It could end up being your favorite vacation EVER! Why not get away with family, friends or colleagues and make some amazing memories at the same time? It’s a true “Win-Win” for everyone!
