The only thing that really matters when adventuring with friends is that everybody is open-minded.
It doesn’t matter how may people, even just two people; both people must be open-minded to how the other adventures, wherever they’re going.
I had a random one once with someone I had only known for roughly 3 weeks. I adventured to Los Angeles on my own and through a lot of events ended up living with a friend of a friend, we had never seen or spoken to each other prior to me living with him.
On a whim we decided a take a road trip from LA to San Francisco, we set off in the afternoon, caught the beauty of the sun setting and the darkness of night-time on a Californian highway, we kept the music blasting and were just ourselves (you’ll be surprised how much better you get along with people when you let loose).
We had this ability to start a joke and keep it going for hours and we cracked each other up the whole time.
Everyone has certain ways of doing things and certain ways of seeing places and I knew this, so we had an understanding that we both were going to embrace each other’s style of adventure and be open-minded. He wanted walk across the Golden Gate Bridge and I wanted to go the Fisherman’s Warf; we did both and walked around San Francisco all day (even getting lost along the way) and both experienced new things.
The best part however came about purely by accident, we were driving to the Cypress Tree Tunnel and before we could even get there, we came across the most beautiful place, we both decided we had to explore it; it was like nothing I had ever seen or experienced, I can still smell the mountain air and hear the waves hitting the rocks.
We were open minded to each other’s journey and open-minded to changing our plans in search for a new experience, and we definitely saw something special.
Adventure with friends, be open-minded, be open-hearted and live the moment.
