We have been abroad on holiday with another couple twice in the last couple of years - Covid permitted at the time. She did all of the organising and we just paid up.
They are nice couple and we all get on well. However, I don't really enjoy going on holiday with anyone other than my husband. Also, I am not the sort of person to strike up a conversation with a stranger on holiday. I find it quite stressful.
We have booked to go away in March (Covid allowing) and they have suggested that they want to join us.
The last couple of times we went away with them we barely had any time to ourselves.
If I suggested that we go our separate ways for a few hours they would say, No, it's fine we will come with you'.
I usually just go along with it rather than cause an issue. I am very non-confrontational.
My DH doesn't seem to be bothered about them coming with us, which doesn't help and makes me look like the wicked witch.
Also, I am not one for sunbathing and the lady of the couple likes to sit around the hotel pool quite a bit. I am happy to do this a few times and read my book but generally I get bored.
I realise this would be a perfect opportunity go do something different but I kind of feel like I am offending them if we don't go along with what they suggest.
They always used to go away with another couple but we seem to be favourites these days.
I get the impression that they don't like going away on their own at all.
I was looking forward to the holiday
