Travelling with friends can be an exhilarating experience
allowing you the opportunity to see new things together for the first
time and make memories that you will be reminiscing about for years to
come. That said, there is a particular art to travelling
successfully with friends without stepping on toes and cramping each
others style. Here’s how to enjoy a motorhome holiday with friends and
avoid becoming ‘frenemies’:
Plan the journey as a group
build anticipation and ensures that you’re all on the same page. Get
together in the planning stages and come up with a rough itinerary that
takes into account everyone’s interests and must-sees. Planning in
advance is a great way to avoid conflict while you’re out on the road.
Allocate one group member as the leader to take down notes off each
person and put together a draft of the itinerary. The planning process
doesn’t have to be a drag – get together over pizza and drinks and turn
it into a light-hearted social event where everyone contributes.
Travel with the right people
before you jump in the motorhome, you may want to reconsider your
companions. Travel with people that you know well so you will know their
boundaries and they will know yours.
Don’t feel pressured to do everything together
don’t have to do absolutely everything together on the holiday. You may
want to break up the group to do different activities or just to have
some alone time. Having a break from your travel companions is a great
way to rejuvenate and appreciate the time you do have together during
