The pair of friends giggled like little girls and had the time of their lives while posing for photos inside the booth.
Our high school friends hold a special place in our hearts. They grew up with us and know a lot of our secrets that no one else does. However, with time, we lose touch with some of these friends as we go our separate ways, moving away from home in pursuit of a job or to fulfill our dreams. But what happens when our paths cross again years later? It's almost as if no time has passed as we re-live the old days.
That's certainly how it was for these two women when they visited a photo booth for the first time since high school. Reddit user u/dittidot warmed hearts online when she shared a fun video of her trip to a photo booth with her best friend. In the adorable clip, the duo is seen giggling like little girls and having the time of their lives inside the booth.
The video gained 6,600 upvotes within two days of being uploaded and is captioned: "My best friend and I visited a photo booth together for the first time since high school."
Many on Reddit loved the photo session of these old friends. u/terriblesediment_50 commented, "This is what true friends are. Such a sweet moment. Love seeing this."

In a similar story of two friends, Sandy Hazelip and Ellie Hamby, are traveling around the world together at 81 years of age. Inspired by Jules Verne's classic novel, "Around the World in 80 Days," the two longtime friends set out to take on a mission to cover 7 continents, visit 18 countries and experience 9 Wonders of the World in just over two and a half months, reports CBS News. Despite their plans being delayed due to the pandemic, the two finally decided to take the journey in 2023 and have already made remarkable progress.
They had first met on a trip to Zambia about two decades ago and have since become close friends. They've tried everything during their travels, from hot air balloons in China to mountaineering in Argentina. They both have total knee replacements, but that hasn't deterred them from experiencing the world the way they want to. The two have even packed light and travel cheaply to make the most out of their trip.
"We don't travel first class. And so when we have other ladies, especially those who say, 'Oh, I would love to travel with you two,' the first thing I always do is look at their hands. If they are well-manicured, they do not want to travel with us," Hazelip explained. The pair want to inspire people of all ages that it is never too late to start exploring the world. "Don't sit in that chair and waste away," Hazelip said. "If you don't use it, you lose it."
