“It is better to travel hopefully that reaching the goal.” says the Japanese wisdom.
Traveling means to me escape, an exit against the usual routine, clear his head and recharge the batteries.
This is why travel with a friend should be fun, not something we do out of obligation.
I absolutely love traveling alone, take the only train, flying alone, eat alone. In short, doing only things do not bother me, quite the contrary.
That’s why when my bestie Habibatou contacted me in early January for us to go to London in late March 2017, I was not very motivated and I’ll tell you why.
This has absolutely nothing to do with Habibatou which is a great and pleasant woman friend but I had a bad experience late 2010 with an old friend who had completely ruined my first trip to London, who spent his time complaining and I had planted in the middle of London (a city I just discovered). Accompanied by another friend who slept with her aunt, I had to make an off-fee of 60 euros for our girlfriend could find the way to its habitat.
From that moment, I promised myself that no one would spoil my holiday.
Hence the idea of this article where I share with you my tips for an enjoyable stay with a (e) friend (e):
- Traveling with A CLOSE FRIEND
Nothing better than traveling you have known for years: it allowed you to observe the compatibility of characters. But still, to see if you can stand to make different trips with her or him. I believe that one can not travel with anyone and it is best to travel with someone you have known for a while. In the past, I had an acquaintance who had the great idea to want to travel with someone she knew only for a few weeks. Result, this person withdrew at the last moment leaving her in a rather uncomfortable situation.
- Short breaks allow you to enjoy excellent moments in friendship. It really allows you to enjoy his friend (e) and can avoid unnecessary disputes. The weekends and the following holidays bridges (and there are many in 2017) give you the opportunity to go to Europe or even further for a few days. This is the best way to put together a trip with friends and then do not we say that travel broadens the mind?
- MAKE A SHORT TRIP

- PLAN YOUR STAY TOGETHER
To avoid losing valuable time (especially if your stay lasts Scent of a Woman), SET plan activities. Do not be selfish by wanting only what you want to do, ask your friend (e) he or she wishes to.
Cut pears in half by going to his desires without suppressing yours: you will see that this will satisfy everyone and no one will feel aggrieved.
- GOOD ACCOUNTS ARE GOOD FRIENDS
Please, avoid leaving the financial burden to your friend (s) about booking your hotel or train or plane tickets. This can create unnecessary tensions and spoil the upcoming holiday. Do not let your friend (e) any pay. Honor your side of the bargain in soldant all before traveling: some people feel embarrass to claim their due (which is totally their right).
