Whether you’ve traveled with family or friends, chances are at one point or another you’ve clashed with someone. Maybe this person interrupted your alone time or simply had a hard time letting go of a pet peeve. Whichever the case may be, there are a few things you should take into consideration before traveling with others. Ask yourself the following questions:
Do I enjoy spending time with this person? If you don’t, you’re in trouble. Don’t assume for a second that traveling will change your dynamic. On the contrary, it will only emphasize it.
Is this person organized? Sure you’ve mentioned traveling together, but is this someone who can budget accordingly and keep track of spending? You should travel with someone who has a sense of what s/he would like to do.
Is this person reliable? If you’ve previously planned something with this person, then you know if s/he is someone you can count on.
Who have you traveled with recently and what was it like?
