Ludicrous. I would never even think of separating my travel experiences from my friends. I either travel with my friends, travel to meet my friends, or make friends while I am traveling. Facebook, email, and skype have kept me in close and consistent contact (say that 5 times fast!) with friends connected with my travels in Europe, Central America, Africa, and all across the United States.
Friends. Relationships. They are what transform a trip into sweet memories and a photo into a story.
Thank you to all of my travel friends, both current and future, for making my travels come alive.
