This pandemic has robbed all of our precious time with our family and friends. We could have travelled around the world to learn new cultures and try new food with our friends but here we are. Experiencing it virtually, from the screen of our phones and laptop. Watching Youtube videos and documentaries.
There are few things that I think we should try to do after the pandemic ends to get closer to our friends and family such as going on road trips, camping or glamping, hiking and snorkeling or scuba diving. All of these activities will not just make you closer to people around you but also you will have more interaction with nature.
- Road trip
Going on a road trip strengthens the bond between you and your family and friends in so many ways. It will start with the idea of going on this road trip. You will communicate more with them as you will have to do surveys on restaurants you are going to try, interesting places you are going to visit and hotels you are going to stay in. During this trip, you are able to try new foods that you have never tried before and at the same time you will know their culture.
And all you need to have to start planning on the trip is a car, money and friends!
Have you ever heard of the term glamping? Glamping is actually a glamorous camping which you will have running water, scrumptious food and comfortable plushies or in a simple word, it offers you a luxurious camping experience.
Even though glamping might be quite glamorous, it actually has the same purpose as camping and it still does not change the fact that you are still going to be exposed to nature. Camping and glamping will put you away from your workload and the hustle and bustle of the city.
Without the unnecessary stress, you can spend more time with your loved ones!
The next thing is hiking! Some people value the existence of their loved ones without the need to have any long conversation so, hiking might be the right choice for you. You are able to experience comforting silence which actually will make you feel closer to your family and friends.
Similar to camping, hiking will make you closer to nature and be able to watch the view. The only difference is you will sweat more during hiking. Hiking is good for your health but if you have any problem with your leg, especially knees, do seek professional advice before you start hiking.
- Scuba Diving
Have you ever tried scuba diving? If you haven’t, you should!
Scuba diving is different from snorkeling as it only requires basic swimming knowledge, breathing techniques and having fun in the water as it is only on the surface of the water. Scuba diving requires extensive training so before diving into deeper water, it is advisable to go to diving classes Malaysia to learn how to dive.
You will be able to spend a lot of time with your family and friends from the learning session to diving into the water. Most people see going to classes as boring and wasting time but little do they know, it actually gives you more quality time with your loved ones.
These are only some of the activities that you can do with your family and friends but there is actually a lot more that you can explore. Have fun exploring and spending time with your loved ones!
