We have this slogan called “Adventures of Lifetime” for every trip we take. The first “adventures of a lifetime” started in San Marcos where our girl Deborah (Creator of Redefining Beauty) lives. But this past May we took it a step further and went out of the state to Los Angeles and it was phenomenal! Here’s a recap.
Here are some tips to a successful vacation with friends.
Go with the right people. We all have friends, but that doesn’t mean we have to travel with all of them. Luckily the ladies of InspireFire and Redefining Beauty are besties and awesome travel partners. We just fit. We love the same things: working out, nature, shopping and healthy food. You should go with someone with similar interest and plan activities related to it.
Location is key. Pick a location where stuff is (for a lack of better words) popping! We got an Airbnb smack dab in the middle of WeHo (that’s west hollywood). We were walking distance from shops on Melrose and cute restaurants. Oh, and there was a Whole Foods literally down the street! A dream!!!
Plan ahead. When there’s four people you need to have a plan of action to make sure you’re never sitting around asking what’s next. That’s why we made an itinerary breaking down each day, down to the restaurants. And no, we didn’t stick to the itinerary completely, but we were never bored. So start doing your research and plan your trip out. You won’t regret it.
Know the infrastructure of the city you’re visiting. When planning this trip we asked for a lot of advice. We got the warning signs about the traffic in LA so that’s why we picked a walkable location. But we still knew there were places we could only go in a car (due to lack of sufficient public transportation), so we rented one. Know the city infrastructure so you know your needs.
Go with the flow. Sometimes things just go wrong or don’t go as planned. But all you can really do is go with the flow. Don’t get stressed out about things you can’t control. For goodness sakes, you’re on vacation. Relax and really enjoy the people you are with.
Have fun! Go crazy and live it up. You deserve it.
