As we grow up and our lives start to move in different directions, it is hard to get all your friends in a room for a day let alone plan a getaway with everyone’s contradicting schedules and lifestyles.

Monetary conversations can often be awkward, especially between friends, but when you’re planning a trip, open conversation about the budget is important for everyone to be on the same page. You need to make a budgeted plan according to the convenience of all your plans and accordingly book the location and activities. Often done backwards, it leads to a lot of miscommunication and misunderstanding. Do not assume a splurge from everyone; plan a trip by staying sensitive to all your friends and their contributions.
3) SELECT A LOCATION
One of the most important aspects of your trip is the location, as the location sets the mood for the whole trip. Here’s where you can prioritise your choice of city/country but make sure it’s logistically practical for all your friends.

Whether you’re a beach or a mountain person, make sure your friends have a baller time.
