Good friends reconnect over a few drinks and plans are made for traveling abroad!
We hadn’t seen each other in years but once we started talking there was no time distance. All the closeness that we had in our earlier lives came back. We talked of many things but once we started talking of travel a plan was hatched. I love to plan the travel and am always ready to go; my companion had the desire and the general locations so together we hatched an itinerary and started our countdown to the trip abroad.
We began talking more frequently as we planned the details of the trip; we talked of what and how to pack and what excursions to take. I made some reservations for different experiences along our itinerary.
My companion was not accustomed to packing lightly; an extra day before the trip was necessary to combine our efforts in getting the luggage under control. We were going to be handling our own luggage for parts of the trip and it needed to remain manageable. We were taking trains, planes and boats across several European countries and neither of us was feeling up to lugging lots of extra accessories!
We laughed our way through the trip and both of us felt lighter and happier than we had in a long while. We were sorry to say goodbye to our vacation together and immediately started planning the next trip.
Everything went as planned and we enjoyed each other’s company and found out we were excellent travel buddies! I did it!~
