Do’s and don’ts of traveling with friends

Some think that the best way to travel is to travel with your friends. One thing about traveling is that we do not want to be judged and we want to let our hair down at all costs. Relaxation and fun are two of the primary objectives of travelling. Friends are assets of a lifetime. They don’t judge us and always end up listening to the most pathetic mistakes that we have made or the most outrageous flings that we have experienced. That is the reason why many prefer to gang up with their friends for a memorable holiday. But in every flower there are some thorns and in every plan there are some problems. The essential traveling guidelines described here will help you to enjoy your vacation with friends without any problems.



1. Be cautious while picking travel buddies

Compatibility should not be judged by how well your choice of food and drinks match or how you both have been wearing the same color scarf the other day. Select your travel buddies carefully. Only a long standing companionship can make someone eligible as your travel companion. Otherwise there is no dearth of drug peddlers and anti-socials around us. So, stay on your guard.

2. Keep it small

Imagine you guys have reached your destination and now each has a different plan, will that be fun? You should be with friends who have common interests and if even they want to try new things they are not absolutely scary for you. Doing things together is the basic idea. The best advice is to travel in a group of 3 to 4 as more members than that can create unnecessary chaos.


1. Don’t be lenient about your plans

Going to a destination without any idea what to do there would be problematic. Check out some activities that you can take part in and make prior arrangements and plans. According to your plans and accommodation, you can pack proper clothes and be prepared for the unexpected too.

2. Don’t ignore your team

A team spirit is very necessary for enjoying a vacation with friends. You cannot turn a blind eye to the needs or desires of your friends. Doing things you love and eating at restaurants of your choice is not the right attitude. Take decisions together and maintain the spirit that true mates have while camping or sailing.
