Spring Break Trips are for the squad, am I right? Each year, many college students spe nd their one week off from school in the spring semester by going on a spring break trip with a group of their friends.
Besides getting ready for the real world and getting a job, the four years of college, are also meant for you to create new friendships and make more memories that will last a lifetime! However, you will not get to go on or experience a spring break trip after graduating (at least until you have your own children and family).
Despite this, one should still get a bunch of friends together and all plan a spring break trip post-graduation! This will be a chance to reunite with those who were by your side during college and celebrate your first months out in the real world together! Perhaps going on an annual spring break trip post-graduation will be a tradition for you and your pals for the coming years!
With that being said, listed below are 6 Reasons Why You And Your Girlfriends Should Still Plan A Spring Break Trip Post Grad:
1. To Create More Everlasting Memories:
As one grows up, there are several important periods of time where he/she creates meaningful and everlasting memories. One of these periods of time includes college.
During your college years, you and your friends will go through a lot together and create memories, both good and bad. Some of these college friendships further develop when you go on vacations, especially spring break trips, together. These spring break trips don’t have to stop once college is over.
Depending on how you and everyone else’s schedule work, you can still go on a spring break trip together post graduation to catch up and to share what everyone’s been up to since graduation. Going on and having these spring break trips each year after graduation will produce even more everlasting memories!
2. To Maintain The Friendships:
As a person enters a new phase of life (and/or education too), he/she creates new friendships along the way. These camaraderie’s (regardless of when they began), will last a lifetime.
As stated earlier, you and your friends will have both good and bad experiences/memories during the four years of college. For you and your college girlfriends whose friendships continue to last beyond university, the best way to make those relationships last a lifetime is to reunite each year for a girls’ trip! It’ll be a great chance for everyone in the friend group to see each other, especially if you all are living all over the country and not just one city anymore!
3. To ‘Celebrate’ Surviving Everyone’s First Months Out in The Real World:
Within the first year of you and all of your girlfriends graduating college, it’s a fantastic idea for you all to reunite by planning and going on a spring break trip post graduation!
The first spring break trip post graduation (if you all plan to have more in the coming years) provides an opportunity for you and all your college girlfriends to catch up and fill each other up in everyone’s individual pursuits and activities in everyone’s first months out in the real world. This ‘Spring Break Trip” will be something that you’ll be looking forward too.
4. To Make Up For The Lost Time In The Summer:
A lot of graduating college students go on trips around the world post-graduation. Some travel with friends and some travel with his/her own families. There’s a great chance that all of you and your girlfriends’ summer plans right after graduation will be different. This depends on when and where all of you are going to travel to, in addition to when they start working their first-full time jobs.
If that’s the case, you and your girlfriends should absolutely consider having a girls’ vacation together! The best time to go on said vacation post graduation is during the spring. However, this is assuming that everyone’s work schedules align for you all to have the time to plan and go on a spring break trip though.
5. A Break From The Real World:
This reason is similar to yet different from Reason #3 (see above). One similarity between this one and #3 is that the spring break trip post graduation allows you and your girlfriends to reunite and fill each other on how each of your lives post-college has been so far. One other similarity is to make more endless memories with your pals. Another one is that the “spring break” trip gives you (and everyone else) something to look forward too.
Everyone’s first year out in the real world after college is challenging. The matter of how challenging this phase of each person’s life is all depends on his/her job, circumstances in his/her personal lives, outside factors, etc. Those components also play a part in what makes Reason #5 different from Reason #3.
After working hard during your first couple of months in the real world, treat yourself to a much-needed and deserved break from the real world by reuniting with your college girlfriends on a post graduation “Spring-Beak” trip.
6. To Learn More and Discover Yourselves:
Traveling around the world allows for one to discover more about themselves, in addition to learning about different cultures and traditions. Any getaway (spring break trip or not) you go on with friends and/or family also produces much more everlasting memories.
As you and your girlfriends travel, whether it’s an exotic location or a destination you all are familiar with, the trip teaches everyone how to adapt to a new and different culture and to come across new experiences you all probably wouldn’t get to experience back at home. This new experiences and self-discovery moments alone are part of the reasons why you and your girlfriends should still plan a spring break trip after graduating college!
