Okay, so you’re getting ready for a major travel adventure with your good friend, and you’re probably super excited. However, there are a few things you should consider doing before actually going on the trip. While you may think that you and your friend are besties for life, things are different when you’re on vacation in another country. Here’s what you need to talk to them about before you go.

Your Budget

Even if your friend has a higher budget than you, you can still do similar things together on the trip. But it’s still super important to clarify at the start what you’re willing to spend and what they’re willing to spend so that there are no surprises later on.

Your Plans

While you and your friend might have similar interests back home, it’s possible that they’ll have a different mindset on the road. You may want to see mountains, while they may only want to party. Again, having differences can totally work, but it’s best to talk about it beforehand.

Your Comfortability

Another thing that you should discuss is your comfortability in foreign places. Is your friend okay with being alone for hours at a time, or even a full night? If not, then you’ll know not to leave them alone in a precarious situation.
