Many women don’t feel ready to do the whole “solo female travel” thing on their first foreign adventure, and so opt to travel with a friend or partner.
It always seems great at first – excited conversations about exotic lands and expensive tours start flying, you plan the basic logistics and you both start packing your bags.
However, without proper foresight, things can quickly go downhill. I have witnessed far too many long-standing friendships and relationships fall apart in a haze of arguments and disagreements on the road.
It’s important to understand that being best friends does not automatically equal perfect travel buddies.
However, with a few easy questions and some simple considerations, you can quickly work out whether or not you will be good travel partners.
