The Do's and Don'ts of Traveling with Friends

I once went on a road trip to Arizona with a really close friend. It was our first time going somewhere together for more than a day, and it turned out to be the last. We started strong, enjoying the same playlists and bottomless car snacks. But when she began to prioritize hanging around local coffee shops over actually exploring Sedona, I knew I had chosen the wrong car to get into. Partially my fault—I knew her penchant for being glued to her phone, trying to get just the right shot of a beautiful landscape instead of being present and interacting with it—but it was here, after spending the better part of the last four years traveling, that I began to understand the value of an open schedule and the right company. After a lot of trial and error, I finally realized the meaning of a good travel sidekick.
