International Friendship Day should be a global holiday. Here’s why…


Friends! More important than money. More reliable than the weather. Shoulders to cry on. Faces to make you smile. Memories to make you laugh. Travel (and life in general), just wouldn’t be the same without them. 

And our fave part of a Contiki trip is watching those friendships be born in real time. We throw a group of strangers together, young and hungry for adventure. And whether we help them explore Europe, Asia, America or Australia, we ALWAYS see the same results. Instant BFFs. Squads crossing continents to reunite. Oh, and then there’s all the marriages, courtesy of Contiki (you’re welcome lovebirds). 

Basically, what we’re saying is that for 60 years we’ve been driven forward and inspired by the incredible relationships formed on our trips. And we think that’s something worth celebrating. In fact, we’re determined to make it happen. 

Because today is International Friendship Day. But unlike Valentine’s (boring) or Mother’s Day (again?) you probably haven’t even heard about it. And we think it’s time to change that. We think friends are one of life’s most precious gifts. And if that doesn’t call for a celebratory day, we don’t know what does.
