What’s The Coolest Adventure You’ve Been On With Your Friends?

Few things can strengthen a friendship quite like an adventure. And it’s usually the craziest adventures that turn you into best friends for life. Have you been on such an adventure with your friends? Here are some real-life adventures of some of our Nixplay Family:

“My friends and I were on holiday at a beach resort, and we impulsively signed up to camp out overnight, Survivor-style, on a deserted beach island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean along with a handful of newfound friends. There was no electricity, we slept in tents and hammocks, and we built a bonfire for warmth and cooking. After dinner, we went skinny dipping in the sea while drinking beers under a starry night sky. It was definitely a night we’ll never forget!” – Megan, 33

“My best friend and I celebrated our 25th birthdays by planning a 2-month trip around South America. We visited the beaches of Brazil, went to the Machu Picchu in Peru, then continued our trip onwards to Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile. It wasn’t always easy–we had a few quarrels and got into a few mishaps, but we emerged from that trip closer than ever.” – Philip, 27

“After our college graduation, my friends and I went on a road trip across the USA. We started our vacation in New York (where we were based) and followed the Atlantic Coast, driving down the Overseas Highway and crossing New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, eventually making our way to Florida. It was a lot of fun, and I’d love to do it again!” – Jan, 41

“My closest girlfriends and I have been joined at the hip since high school, and we’ve been each other’s confidantes throughout the years. On the year we turned 50, we went on a girls-only trip to the Maldives for a luxurious vacation. We spent a week in a villa, snorkeling and SCUBA diving, watching dolphins, enjoying spa treatments, and watching the sunset while sipping drinks. We don’t know when we can go on an adventure like this again, so I’m glad we got the chance to do this while we’re all still alive and strong.” – Greta, 51

4 Nostalgia-Filled Ideas To Celebrate International Friendship Day

Few things in life are as pure as friendship. Whether our greatest friendships began over a shared toy before we could spell our names, or over a game of Mahjong that became the can’t-miss moment of your week, our friends have become our bridge to shared happiness.

International Friendship Day may be over, but the bond you share with your friends should be celebrated every day. Here are a few great ways to look back on the relationships that matter most to you.

Dig Through Old Photo Albums

Human memory may fade, but the moments we hold closest to our hearts need not be gone too. Looking at old photographs is a great way to remind yourself of where you were and how your friends helped mold you into who you are. If the memories in our minds contain the unwritten records of our lives, then the photos we take hold our written history, effectively capturing the colors and moods of erstwhile forgotten moments and preserving them in print.

Turn Your Printed Pictures Into Digital Ones

It’s important that we hold on to our history. By preserving our pictures, we ensure that they will remain not only a part of our memories but also a part of our futures.

With a digital scanning app like Photomyne (free on iOS and Android), you can easily scan decades’ worth of photos on to your phone. Now you can quickly find that first photo of you with your college roommate on your next reunion!

Share The Love

Never miss a chance to let your friends know how much they mean to you! Don’t keep this love and emotion to yourself—share the love and let your friends know how much you care. Show them exactly how much they mean to you by sharing with them photos of your lives together.

One way to do this is by sending them a slideshow of your favorite memories, including photos the fun times that you forgot ever happened. Upload them on a Nixplay Frame so you can display your pictures on your mantle for all your guests to see. The best part? Nixplay’s Friendship Day sale is still ongoing, so you can get our bestselling frames at up to 25% off!


Call A Friend & Catch Up

When is the last time you picked up the phone and called a friend you haven’t heard from in years? Maybe your college roommate is traveling around the world and the time difference made connecting that much harder. Perhaps your best friend since your daycare days just had a baby and time just got in the way. No matter the situation, all it takes is that one phone call to rekindle the magic that brought you two close in the first place.

No matter what, never let life get in the way of a beautiful friendship. Do what it takes to relive the unconditional love that only comes from your friends.

How To Make Friends While Traveling

Meeting new people is always a major highlight of any trip. Whether you got to know friendly locals at a sports game or hobnobbed with fellow tourists while sightseeing, one thing’s for sure: The memories you shared will be cherished forever.

However, making friends on the road isn’t as easy as it looks, especially for introverts. Befriending other people involves deliberately stepping outside your comfort zone and making yourself a bit vulnerable, and it can even trigger moments of mind-wracking anxiety. But rest assured, the payoff is usually worth it.

So how does one go about making friends while traveling? Here are some easy ways to do so.

Hang out at a bar

Traveling alone? Seek out a lively bar, order a drink, and chat up the person who eventually sits next to you. Start with small talk—bring up the weather or ask about the person’s drink—then proceed from there.

Join a free tour

You can find free walking tours in several cities worldwide, and the good news is that they’re usually free. It’s a lovely way to see the sights while learning interesting things about each landmark’s history. Don’t forget to give your guide a good tip!

Get active on social media

Join travel groups on Facebook and ask around for travel tips, interesting restaurants, and other fun activities in your destination. Who knows, you might even get invited to fun events!


Volunteering hits two birds with one stone: You’ll get to meet new people while helping out the community. It also provides you with an in-depth view of the issues surrounding your destination and gives you a newfound appreciation of the life you’re lucky enough to live.

Just strike up a conversation!

Really, it all boils down to getting out of your comfort zone and chatting up the people around you. Stuck on a bus for a long trip? Strike up a conversation with the person beside you. Taking pictures around the city by your lonesome? Don’t hesitate to a stranger to take a picture so you’re in the frame, and return the favor. Just go ahead and chat!

With the right mindset, you’ll befriend a ton of people before your trip is over. Don’t forget to take lots of photos with your new pals and display them on your Nixplay Frame!

Invite your new friends to share their photos with you so you’ll always have memories of your adventure together. Take advantage of Nixplay’s International Friendship Day sale and get up to 25% off selected frames, only until August 4!


10 Things That Should Be On Your Best Friend Bucket List

One of the perks of having a best friend is that you have someone with whom you can do all the fun things you’ve always wanted to do. The best part is that it’s never too late to make new memories with them! Whether you’ve been joined at the hip since kindergarten or are colleagues-turned-BFFS, there will never be a shortage of new adventures to embark on and fun times to be had. Start with these ten activities you can tick off before summer ends!

Go on an impromptu road trip.

Gas up your car, stock up snacks, and make a playlist with all your favorite songs and podcasts. You’ll have all you need for a fun road trip across a few state lines.

Stay up all night and watch the sunrise.

After binge-watching your favorite shows and movies all night long, prepare some tea or hot chocolate and head out to catch the last twinkling of the stars before the sunrise. It’s the perfect time for a heart-to-heart talk with your bestie–you’ll be closer than ever!

Hit the beach.

Make it a summer to remember by going to the beach with your closest friends! Pack some refreshing treats and put on your most flattering swimsuit for a fun day of sun, sand, and sea. If you can go snorkeling or better yet, scuba diving, that’ll be even better.

Try a restaurant you’ve always wanted to dine at.

Maybe it’s a fancy restaurant with a few Michelin Stars or a talked-about place with a cheap buffet. Whatever’s on your shared foodie bucket list, pick one out and tick it off with your best pals!

Go camping.

Camping is a great way to learn more about yourself and your friends. Aside from polishing your survival skills, you’ll learn a lot about each other when you’re out in the wilderness. Build a fire, toast some smores, and get comfortable for a great chat with your buddies.

Visit another country together.

Exploring a different country will take your friendship to new heights. When you’re out of your comfort zone, navigating around a foreign land, you’ll learn to tolerate each other’s quirks and habits, both good and bad.

Attend your favorite artist’s concert.

Going to a concert or a music festival with your buddies can definitely be counted as a highlight of your friendship. It can be a little expensive, especially if it’s a major celebrity or an out-of-town concert, but the memories you’ll make will be priceless.

Find a favorite hiking spot.

If you and your friends are an outdoorsy bunch, you probably already have a favorite hiking spot by now. It’ll be nice if you and your friends can go there at least once a year to have a great time outdoors.

Join a race together.

Athletic buddies should ignite their competitive tendencies and join a race together! Don’t feel pressured to finish first, but train hard and make an effort to beat your respective personal best records.

Visit an amusement park together.

Amusement parks are always fun to visit, but it’s just better when you’re with your best friends. You’ll have a blast lining up for the rides and trying all the snacks you’ll only get to eat there.

Don’t forget to take lots of pictures with your BFF when you go on your adventures! This way, you’ll always have fond memories of your friendship that you can look back on as the years pass by. Display your favorite photos on a Nixplay Frame so you’ll always be reminded of the good times you’ve had. Better yet, surprise your best friend with a Nixplay Frame of their own so they’ll have an everlasting reminder of your friendship!
