Traveling feeds your soul. It helps you grow in many ways. When you witness new places and mingle with new people, those that you don’t spend your life with back home, you get to learn a lot. You find your true self and connect to your spirit on a deeper level.
But wait! What about those you are leaving behind? What about your friends and family?
When planning a long travel, it is important to let close ones know about your plan. Saying goodbye isn’t easy, but it can be happening. We have listed down a few goodbye party ideas for you to plan before your trip.
Invite Everyone Over
Before you leave, it is important to meet up with your close ones and say them goodbye. However, visiting everyone individually will take up a lot of time, which is why it is best to invite everyone at your place and throw a party as a nice gesture before your trip.
This party is not only meant to spend time with friends and family, but also to reveal to them your excursion.
If you’re like me and quit your job to travel the world, you’ll know that one of the best things about leaving is enjoying new experiences, but the worst thing is to leave behind loved ones. To make your trip relaxing, it is important to take along memories from home. For this, you can arrange a glass jar and ask friends and family to write their favorite memory with you on a piece of paper. Once everyone is done, ask them to put it in the glass jar that you will take with you. So, when you miss anyone, you can take out one piece out of the jar and feel relieved.
Guess the Place Game
To add some excitement to the party, play a guessing game with your guests. Ask everyone to guess the places you are travelling to, promise the winner of the game a souvenir from the tour.
Not everything is super fun about traveling. There’s a lot you need to do including making a bucket list. It is quite hard to come up with a list with all the places you want to visit and all the things you want to do during your trip. But having a list makes everything easy and keeps you organized.
A great way to make the task easy on yourself is to ask all the guests to suggest a few things that you can add to your bucket list. This way, you will not need to put a lot of pressure on your mind and end up with a dynamic to-do list.
Use a Polaroid
Polaroid pictures are vintage, hip, and cool. So, get one and take cool goodbye pictures with your friends and family. Give the pictures to the respective person so when they miss you while you are away, they can look at the happy goodbye picture. Leave a message at the back of the picture to give it a more personalized touch.
Now that the goodbyes are done, it is time to prepare for a trip of fun, adventure, excitement, self-exploration, and memory-making.s
