THE ADVANTAGES OF HAVING FRIENDS AROUND THE GLOBE

When you have friends from different parts of the world, each one of them adds something new to witness. The experiences and things you learn through these encounters are a great way of broadening your horizons. The chance to travel and see places you only dreamed on is a wonderful way to capture everything the world has to offer. In this article I would like to describe a few of the advantages of having friends in other parts of the world and why it’s beneficial.

Cultural Exchange, without the added Cost
Travelling can be quite expensive and with commitments like work studies and family we don’t have many opportunities to see everything we hoped to when we visit a new place. But this changes when you have friends in various places of the world as they can give you an insight into different cultures without you ever having to leave home.

The chance to sample lots of different Foods/Cuisines
Each cultures tradition towards food does vary, however the first thing people do to make you feel welcome is present you with food and there’s always so much variation to try out. This saves you time on having to go looking for expensive restaurants as the friends you make along the way can share with you their authentic food cultures.

Expanding your Vocabulary by learning Foreign Words



The opportunity to learn different languages is great when you travel. Although it may seem unnecessary to become entirely fluent with the language, you can learn a few expressions and phrases that could be helpful during your stay. You could even introduce your friends to the language you speak to help them understand your culture better.

A great depth of Understanding of various World views 
When we travel our own knowledge can be tested as different people have different opinions/views of the same topic. This leads us to understand the situation better and gain new insight into what may have taken place. The friends you meet along the way could enlighten and challenge your thoughts, thereby giving you a richer experience.

Learning Secret escapes and places among your Travels
When you have a friend native to that country being your personal tour guide, you’ve got great access to visit places rarely seen by other people. This lets you learn about significant places and why there important.

Plenty of Reasons to Celebrate
Traveling gives you plenty of opportunities to get together, cook amazing food and celebrate. Each country you visit has its own holidays and traditions, giving you amble chances to throw a party and enjoy some good company.

Let’s you be more Spontaneous 
This is especially great if you’re a student or working in a foreign country. You could either hop on a bus or take a train to visit places of interest. Having a friend to share this experience with makes it even more interesting and fun.

Conclusion 
These are just a few of the many advantages that come with having friends from around the globe. Given all the benefits and opportunities it does seem like a lovely way of communicating and experiencing the joys of friendship.
