Having read the post about holiday with in laws I thought I'd ask about holidays with friends.
We've often be away with various friends and over the years I've developed a list of what I expect.
1. For each couple to have their own transport.
This arose because we rented a house in Italy with two friends and we had driven there whilst they flew. This meant that they were dependant upon us for taking them out and about. This was fine, except they didn't get up until about 10.00am. Their normal working day started with them getting up at 5.30am to get to work in London. We were usually ready to go out by about 9.00am so we wasted time.
2. To only go away with friends who enjoy their food and wine.
Nothing worse than being with people who are weight watching and/or abstemious.
3. To have a communal purse to which everyone contributes the same amount so whoever is going shopping takes the purse. Replenish the purse as necessary.
In case you're wondering, I have over the years discussed my wants with friends and they have tended to agree with me.
