Travel is awesome. Travelling with friends is even more
awesome…sometimes. Friends can either make your adventure exhilarating,
or they can ruin it, making you wish you’d gone alone. Whatever the case

activities to do for the group. No one really likes to do it but

city alone then each of you should promise to check in with each other.
