Mothers are fairies. They say God created Mothers, for he/she can’t be everywhere! It’s a cliche, but, nonetheless, mothers are Gods. She always got your back. She supports you, Stands by you through the toughest phases of your life. You can trust her with your eyes shut. So, why not make this bond stronger and travel with mothers? You might travel with your friends, your partner, your colleagues. But you should take at least one trip with your Mom. Your mom might prove to be the best travel companion, And I am here to convince you why.
1. Your mum is longing to be with you.
As we are aging, we often forget that our parents are aging too. As we get busy building our careers and finding a partner, They are longing for quality time to spend with their children. Take that trip with your Mom, Spend that quality time with her, Make life long memories that you will cherish for the rest of your life. Make her feel special. Do it now.
This is a fast world, And we are in a rush to do more things in life, achieve more in our careers, See more places as we travel, Eat fast as we are in constant hurry. Although, really, pause for a moment, slow down the pace of your life. Every trip I took with my Mom, I slowed down for a bit, Enjoyed things in slow motion, Truly relished the taste of the food I was eating. Stopped by the places to fully know about it, and just sit there and simply observe life and things in general. This might prove to be one of the calm, Relaxing, And therapeutic traveling experiences with the best travel companion.
3. You will be the best trip planner and be more responsible than ever.
Yes!! You will plan the best-organized trip if you’re traveling with your Mom. You Wouldn’t care much if it’s a trip you take with friends or partner, because you are young and can afford to mess up things here and there and welcome a few misadventures. But, When you take your Mom along, You know you can’t mess it up, From the train/flight tickets to hotel bookings, you have to get everything right.
4. Get to know your mum.
Traveling is the best time to know your Mom better.Who knows she might actually surprise you with her choices, And you might discover a different & fun side of her. You can bring out that inner child in your Mom, and she might end up trying new things with you. You might become her best friend, And most importantly, she will be comfortable trying out new things with you. And, she might too get a chance of understanding you better than ever. Why not make memories with someone who means the world to you?!!
5. This is the fun part! You know she will handle the expenses!!
Who could be the best shopping partner other than your Mom?!
Although you can spend and ask her not to! But she won’t listen, will she?!! I believe this might be the star trait of the best travel companion.
