The friends you go travelling with can literally make or break a trip! Here are a few examples of friends you need to have the patience for when travelling with them.
– The friends that can’t take a good picture
I mean girl come on, we need a friend that can break her back go on top of a mountain like because yeah, we require that excellent picture! Allow them friends that take a picture with their thumb in the right-hand corner or where you are bare blurry the person is just not needed!
– The friends that don’t embrace a culture.
Them ones that travel, but don’t know how to experience and live in the culture surrounding them. They complain about everything! It can be the weather, the fact that people are speaking another language around them or worse that they can’t stand the food!. FYI traveller – you are in another country – embrace what is around you or STAY AT HOME!
-The friends that need you to hold something for them – like every two seconds!
Oh my gosh! I can’t. I recently went away with someone, and they always needed me to put something in their bag. If it wasn’t that, then they wanted me to hold something. Now I think I wear my emotions on my face so this person could see this was getting on my nerves.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with holding something for someone here and there; every second can be extremely annoying!
– The friends that don’t do anything!
Lucky for me I haven’t yet been on holiday with anyone like that – tell a lie I have been with someone like this, and it can really ruin a holiday! I have a friend who went on holiday with someone that was basically terrified of going anywhere and basically ruined the holiday and can you believe we both had that experience when we went to Barcelona – I need to go back!
-The friends that rush you to get ready
Hunnie I am a black girl, and when I am on holiday I like to slay! I have a massive obsession with doing my face up – adding my eyelashes and just trying on a few outfits and planning how I am going to look! If you are rushing me, this gets me angry. Just don’t rush me but please don’t be the person that is always the very last to get ready that will get annoying when everyone’s still sitting around waiting for you.
– The friends that rely on you for everything
We can agree that if you are travelling with someone who plans or decides to do nothing that can be a hell of annoying! I have been on a few trips with people who rely on you for everything, and it can be incredibly frustrating. However, what I will say is at least you get to do everything you enjoy.
-The friends who always need the toilet
Look, I get it. I am someone who should always go to the toilet when I leave a location. But some people don’t have self-control! This person will slow you or the group down, and you don’t need this.
– The friends that are always on social media
I am very guilty of this so I can’t really talk – *wait yes, I can it’s my blog*
Let’s face it when you are Instagramming, Facebooking, snap chatting, and whatever there is nowadays it can get very annoying! As I am very guilty of doing this, I think I have learnt that it is ok to take videos and pictures and whatever, but spend some time trying to enjoy the moment and then do all of that stuff letter.
– The friends that are CHEAP
Now I know this isn’t me, so LISTEN and listen well!
Please don’t go on holiday with stingy people and I mean people that are happy with you to pay for everything and they give you an I.O.U tab on your head. I’ve been on holiday with some CHEAP people and trust me it can hurt one’s soul! Let’s be real when you are on holiday you want to participate in activities and if you have a friend that doesn’t want to pay up you are going to be a little irritated trust me!
