travelling with a friend

There's something truly magical about embarking on a journey with a friend by your side. The laughter, the shared experiences, the unforgettable memories—it's all part of the adventure. But before you pack your bags and hit the road, there are a few important questions to consider. Trust me, a little preparation goes a long way in ensuring a smooth and enjoyable trip for both of you.

So grab a cup of tea, cozy up, and let's dive into the 11 most important questions to ask when traveling with a friend:

What's our travel style?

Are you a spontaneous explorer or a meticulous planner? Understanding each other's preferences will help you tailor the trip to suit both of your tastes.

What's our budget?

Money can be a touchy subject but it's essential to discuss finances upfront to avoid any misunderstandings later on. Plus, finding ways to save together can make your trip even more rewarding!

What are our must-see and do?

Share your travel bucket lists and find common ground. Whether it's sipping on R & R at one of the local Barracas in Ponta Malongane Village, diving, snorkling and jam packing your trip with activities or do you prefer to go for early morning runs along the pristine Mozambique beaches and spend most of your days chilling by the swimming pool of the house you have booked.  Make sure you're both excited about the itinerary.

How do we handle conflicts?

Let's face it, disagreements happen. Talk openly about how you'll navigate conflicts respectfully to keep the harmony alive during your travels.

Are we morning people or night owls?

Sleep schedules can make or break a trip. Make sure you're on the same page about when to rise and shine or unwind and relax.

What are our deal-breakers?

Whether it's dietary restrictions, fear of heights, or a need for personal space, understanding each other's boundaries will help you avoid potential pitfalls.

How will we split responsibilities?

From booking accommodations to navigating foreign streets, dividing tasks will lighten the load and ensure a smoother journey for both of you.

Do we need alone time?

Even the closest of friends need a breather sometimes. Discuss how you'll carve out solo moments to recharge and reflect without feeling guilty.

What's our communication plan?

Stay connected and informed by deciding on communication channels and frequency, especially if you'll be exploring separate interests during the trip.

How will we handle emergencies?

It's better to be safe than sorry. Exchange emergency contacts, know where the nearest help is, and have a plan in case of unexpected situations.

What are our expectations for the trip?

Be honest about what you hope to gain from the experience. Whether it's seeking adventure, relaxation, or cultural immersion, aligning your expectations ensures a fulfilling journey for both of you.

By asking these questions and communicating openly, you'll not only strengthen your friendship but also create memories that will last a lifetime. So go ahead, seize the moment, and embark on your next adventure together. After all, the world is waiting to be explored, and there's no one else you'd rather share it with than your dear friend.

Safe travels and may your journey be filled with laughter, love, and unforgettable moments!
