The Test of Friendship - My Family Travels

What is friendship? If friendship is being stuck in a car for eighteen hours, stopping only to use the bathroom and get gas, having your space invaded, and not complaining about it once, then I have the best friendship a girl could ask for. It was our junior year spring break and we were headed to Madeira Beach, Florida with Lauren’s parents. We packed our bags excitedly and shoved them in the car.

The ride was long and crammed, but we did not say a word about it because we were so happy to be together for spring break. The three of us were very excited to finally arrive at our destination. When we got our condominium room, we immediately started unpacking.

I do not think I will ever forget how excited I was to be in paradise with the two girls that made my world go round. We had just started our week journey of fun in the sun. Our days were filled with lying by the pool or on the beach, shopping, browsing the boy selection, and eating out.

We were simply in heaven. Never once was there a fight between the three of us. If you are going to go on vacation with people, they have to be people who you get along with well.

We had so many laughs and fun times that we will hold forever. We made amazing memories. I think our trip brought us closer together as friends.

When you are with someone 24/7 you get to know them very well. If I had not been with those two girls, I guarantee the time I had would not have been so enjoyable. You have to have an open mind on vacation.

You have to give and take, and do some things that you might not want to. However, if your attitude is positive, any trip can be an amazing one.
