Many people say, and this has been tested by many vacation-goers time and time again, that visiting a place can be made even more special and fun if you share it with good company. However, a slight miscalculation in choosing who to bring along with you could also lead to catastrophes wasting your time, effort and money.
Thus, next time you start booking or inviting people to your next grand trip, make sure to include these people in your list of travel buddies.
The Master Planner
Master Planner – you just can’t go hop on a plane and travel for miles without bringing this guy with you. Why? Because you will practically not have anything to do when you get to your destination. This guy will obsess for days just to come up with the perfect itinerary that you and your whole group could enjoy from the places you will visit, where you will stay, the mode oftransportation you will take and what food to eat. If you have this guy, all you need to do is bring some cash, pack your bags and enjoy the rest of the trip away.[divider]
The Human ATM
The Human ATM – indeed it is true that money does not make the world go round. However, it makes your trip more fun and exciting because we all have to admit that wherever you go fun is always equal to expenses like the exhilarating paragliding adventure, the underwater diving escapade and the unforgettable surfing experience. Thus, you need someone who will help you pay all of these especially if you are on a tight budget.[divider]
Tech Savant – any group needs its intelligence wing and this guy will surely give you all the information you need. He will make sure to bring along his trusted gadgets with him and always stay connected so you never get lost. All you need to do is tell him where you need to go and he will lead the way. Consider him the walking beacon that guides your path to fun and excitement.[divider]
A YOLO Friend

The Jackass at Heart – this person would either have the bravest heart or the craziest head or both in the group. He will be the one to coax everyone into trying a very exotic delicacy or get into daredevil rides just for the fun of it. Of course, he can be rough with his words and insult you until the end but all these he will do just to make you bring the daredevil in you.[divider]
The Photographer – you make memories when you go from one place to another and you need to be able to keep your memories in all the pictures you can take – but taking selfies all the time would be all too inconvenient! Well, to solve this problem, the answer is simple. Bring along your friend who has dedicated himself to a life of photography. How to know who this person is? He would be that friend who would be all too happy to take a picture of the most mundane things such as ducks walking, ants in line, a fallen fork or a torn leaf.[divider]
