A weekend getaway with your girlfriends is something is special. Just like the film portrayed, a trip is an act of sisterhood that can bring people closer or get them to never talk again in life. This trip is high on emotions and drama. We are not trying to scare you, instead, we are here to help you. We are here to give you some tips that will make your next weekend getaway with your girl gang, the trip that you’ll remember forever.
Meet up and decide the place
Instead of having continuous long WhatsApp chats that you can’t really keep up with, meet up and decide on a place. Get together for a brunch or dinner and talk about the places that you want to go to and the things that you want to do. This helps everyone keep their points forward and they feel that they are being listened to. This will also be like a tester for your girls’ trip.
Be upfront about the budget
This is a very crucial point. Some people might be comfortable spending a certain amount of money on the trip and some won’t. Try and find a common ground that is acceptable for everyone. The things that you spend the most money on are hotels and conveyance. Therefore, try and find hotels that are safe and pocket-friendly, and modes of transportation that everyone is comfortable with.
Do the bookings beforehand
Who doesn’t like to have hilarious conversations with their girlfriends over a glass of wine? Right? So, let your trip be all about those fun conversations. And in order to remove the element of stress and panic from your girls’ trip make sure you do all the bookings beforehand. This includes all the touristy places that you will be visiting and all the safaris that you will be going to.
Plan on things that you want to do
The planning phase is of utmost importance. That is where the chances of all the mishaps happening are the most. Planning everything within everyone’s budgets and including all the activities can be challenging but that’s the only correct thing to do. This might take a lot of back and forth but it will make your girlfriends feel that their points are being considered and they will happy.
Have an itinerary that is approved by everyone
This is important. Once you have the seal of approval by everyone on the itinerary, there are very few chances of anything messing up and the trip taking a turn for a fight fest.
