- Have you had problems before that could affect the trip?
One of the requirements of friendship is to know how to forgive and ask for forgiveness, which means maybe not bringing up all those negative things every time you’re together. But it is also necessary to be cautious and always anticipate the possible problems that may arise, which implies, of course, going back to the past in previous conflicts. Ask yourself, have you had any problems with this friend that could have a negative impact on your trip? If so, how can you ensure that those issues don’t arise again on this trip? Listen, we’re not saying you shouldn’t forgive your friends, because everybody makes mistakes. But if this is always the friend that has a little too much at the bar and ends up getting you in trouble, maybe lose their invite in the mail on this trip.
- Clear things up from the beginning, so there are no problems.
When you’re on a trip, nothing is going to determine your itinerary more than budget. With that being said, traveling with friends that are on a tighter budget, or expect to spend way more than you, could become a real issue. Agree on your plans well in advance, so everyone is aware of what the spending will look like. Some may even want to go as far as to create a trip fund, put their budget into that fund, and use that for the duration of the trip. All in all, agreeing on the agenda of your trip well in advance will make it easier for everyone to make sure they are on the same page in terms of fun, and funding.
