New Delhi [India], July 31 : Friendship’s Day is just knocking on our doors, and so is the time to rekindle the bond with our ‘partners in crime’. Celebrated on the first Sunday of August every year, the day is perfect to stir that settled friendship one more time and to take a much-needed break from the monotony.
This year, on Friendship’s Day, Goibibo, India’s leading online travel company, has curated a list of some ideas for your gang to take on 2020 and make it yours.
Here’s how you can choose to spend this weekend with your friends as you catch up on all the lost time and treat yourselves with the much-needed break to rejuvenate the bonds.
— Four wheels are all you need
With the long weekend around the corner, embark on a fun-filled and exciting weekend with your long-missed friends! With all of us being locked indoors for over four months, a breath of fresh air and a change in environment can be much appreciated. Hop in and drive overnight to the locations like Rishikesh, Shimla, Manali, etc. from Delhi or Goa, Mahabaleshwar, Igatpuri, etc. from Mumbai. Catch up on that endless chatter and banter that we’ve all craved for in the last few months. A lot of travel sights are now open for travel, all you need to ensure is abiding the state rules of safety for your good. Maybe this is your weekend to recreate those ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ moments with your amazing bunch and make 2020 a good year.
— Watch till you drop
We understand if you do not wish to travel but that doesn’t have to mean you ditch this friendship’s day. Don’t worry, here what you can do! Just load the snack trays and figure out the best shows or movies to binge-watch all weekend through. We have a few fun ideas to help you pick who gets to choose! Choose to binge-watch shows that you all grew up watching, or play a simple game of stone-paper-scissors (Best of 3) and the winner gets to pick, or simply just watch the evergreen ‘Friends’, cliche but true. So, go on and binge-watch the weekend away with your friends and loads of popcorn by your side.
— Make your living room your visa!
Yet skeptical of stepping out? Want to enjoy the best of both worlds? Worry not as we get the outdoors into your living room. Invite over your friends, keep the masks on and gear up for some fun virtual travel with your friends. Goibibo is offering some exciting weekend virtual travel experiences like the live Jeep Safari in Luangwa National Park, Zambia with a local ranger, live online strolls through the Diagon alley with the Harry Potter Trail in Edinburgh, day outing with the Koala Whisperer at Byron Bay Australia, or explore the historical places like Pyramids of Giza, wonders of Petra, lanes of Cusco, there is something for everyone. All you need is the Goibibo app to book your slots before it is sold out. This will not only satiate your travel pangs with your favourite bunch but also allow you to travel together without going through the hassle of planning and matching calendars for trips that have been in plans since forever.
— Friends who laugh or cook together
br />Miss going out for concerts, stand-up comedy shows, or those workshops to learn a new skill with your bunch? Well, you don’t have to wait for the world back to normal for that because Goibibo brings all these things to you in the comfort of your home. For this friendship’s day channelize your inner master chef and take the live cooking session with chef Gayan Darshana Aberathne to cook the perfect risottos or jumbo prawns, or enjoy the laughter riot with stand-up comedian Jeeveshu Ahluwalia. Be rest assured that your next pot meal will certainly be a feast and you will not have to hear the same old jokes and same old clowns in the group! (ANI)
