To travel is to learn, to experience new things, to get out of your comfort zone and meet new people!

There are plenty of positives to adding new people to your friendship group. With shared BBQ areas, sports facilities and swimming pools, Brisbane Holiday Village offers the perfect setting for socialising and making new friends.

From new adventures to support, we’ve got five awesome reasons why you should try to make new friends on your next trip!

1.   You Might Learn Something New

Sometimes we can get too comfortable in our own world, so it’s good to get out there and hear different opinions and perspectives. There are takeaways we can get from talking to new people – we may learn something new or get fresh new ideas. The things you learn from others may range from cultural interests to travel tips, tasty recipes to random facts. At the very least, you’ll be better equipped for your next trivia night or party conversation! 

2.   Enhance Your Communication Skills

Talking to new people is a great way to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. When you interact with people from diverse backgrounds, you practice your verbal communication skills. The more comfortable you get communicating, the more open you’ll be to trying new things in your life. This can lead to benefits in your personal and professional life, providing advantages that last long after your holiday is over. 

3.   Teach Your Kids the Value of Friendship

For social and emotional learning, it’s important for our children to make new friends. Friendships enable kids to learn more about empathy, communication and self-esteem, as well as turn-taking and sharing. Brisbane Holiday Village offers a safe and friendly environment for children from diverse backgrounds and ages to interact with each other.

4.   You Might Feel Positive and Happy

Making new friends can be an enriching and rewarding experience, no matter how old you are. When you connect with someone, laugh about something together or share the same interests, there can be something really fun and exciting about it. Meeting new people might make your holiday getaway even more happy and positive!

5.   Be Introduced to New Opportunities

New friends may encourage you to try new activities and expose you to things that you would never have thought you’d like before. Never thought you’d ride that rollercoaster? Your enthusiastic new friend might change your mind, giving you a great experience you’ll never forget. Instead of feeling nervous, it’s good to embrace challenges. After all, what have you got to lose?
