7 Best Tips For Your Next Holiday in Spain With Friends
1. Book everything early
Book the flight early. That's one of the rules of traveling. The earlier you book it, the cheaper it is. You may also be able to find the best options if you think about the whole trip earlier.
2. If you're a lot, book an Airbnb instead of a hostel
Let's admit it, an Airbnb would be more convenient than staying in a hostel, right? If you're going to be more than 4 people, then book an apartment instead. Aside from having your own bathroom and kitchen, you will all have the fun you all want to have because you'll have privacy and you can go at your own volume and pace.
3. Be prepared to walk
That's the whole sense to making a trip, right? To go somewhere and explore the place. With group trips, you will have to walk and walk and walk. So, I would prepare very comfortable walking/running shoes if I were you.
4. Make more friends
When you're in a group, it's also easier for you to make friends with the locals, or in this case, other backpackers/travelers as well; and it's always fun to strike up a conversation with people from other countries in order to widen your circle and also to learn things from them. When you get along after all, your group can be able to merge together and have a very fun and memorable trip by doing an activity together.
5. Familiarize yourself with basic Spanish words
Spanish is not such a hard language and learning the basics would really be advantageous to you when you are in Spain and the locals would appreciate it very much when you exert effort to learn their language. They are very friendly and what better way to communicate with them than the language they alread know right?
6. Be comfortable with friends
For this trip to work and to be worth it, you will have to be comfortable with the people you're with. I mean, you would want to spend the days you're there with a person you dislike, right? It will take away the fun of the trip and conflicts may occur in the duration of the whole vacation.
7. Let yourself loose and just enjoy!
The best thing about going on a trip with friends is that you get to create these memories together. Someday, you will remember the whole vacation and the crazy things you and your friends did! I, for example, also enjoyed my trip in Spain because I went with really good friends of mine and we were able to do what each person wants to do because we were flexible with one another. Moreover, we felt comfortable talking with each other and that's one of the ingredients to a fun and memorable trip!
