Travelling in a group is fun. Through travelling together, we learn much more about our friends than just meeting up occasionally in a pub or bar. Did you know that by going on a trip together, a couple could discover if they are compatible or not for living together?
Travelling in a group does have many challenges which are unheard of when going solo. First of all, when you travel alone, you are only responsible for finding accommodation, food, transportation, or the route for yourself. You are also entirely free to modify your plan to suit your needs, without having to ask for a second opinion. Travelling in a group is totally different. When finding accommodation, we have to take into account the opinion and budget of every member and find a compromise point. It’s not always easy to find a common solution that satisfies all the members’ needs.
Consider booking a hostel if you are travelling in a group. It will help you save a considerable amount of money, which can then be used for other activities, and Wales offers a whole lot of activities to take part in. Most hostels have smaller dorms with four or six beds that are perfect for groups of four to six people. Even if you have only three people, by paying for a 4-bed dorm, you enjoy greater privacy and freedom, since you don’t have to share the room with an additional stranger.
Hostels offer a perfect environment for groups to socialise and have fun. Late night movies, free walking tours, pub crawls, and bike rentals are just some of the offers which most hostels have. Another perk is the shared kitchen, which you are free to use to cook your own food. This would cut the costs of eating out and also allow you to enjoy a healthier diet that is made from fresh ingredients from a local grocery store.
