more or less than the other. You've got to set the rules before you go. You've got a group trips there. It gets even more complicated, I think, being honest, here's my budget. Here's where I wanna go. Sometimes there will be that back and forth. Let's say one person in the relationship is making more money. If they really want to do the splurge, do you think they may have to pay more of a percentage off what that hotel room looks like? But you gotta lay that out of this church. You gotta understand, because the reality is most friendship groups. Most couples, they are not all earning the same money. If there is going to be a difference on, I think having that conversation before you go or you kind of make. Sometimes if you are the person making more money, you might have to do this trip Soto, because it's not fair to put people that aren't on the same financial level as you into that situation and may or may be you compromise and you go on the backpack trip. But the key is communication up front. What are we spending, who's spending what percentage Watson. No go Watson. Yes, what do we spend our money on, either in a group situation or a couple situation? It's awkward, but getting that conversation of the way before you get on the plane is important, and we also should be discussing the nuts and bolts of how we're going to pay for those things. Once we're on the road or beforehand, I always recommend getting ah, trip expense app. So split wise is a really good one. I am like an evangelist for this app. It is truly I go on a trip with my girlfriends once a year, and they're eight of us. And we are now at a point where we're all super competitive, not with each other, but with ourselves about points and so deciding who at the table is going to pay for certain things and ensure that they're going to get paid back? Um, is a huge conversation that we have and split wise has, like, completely eliminated all of the concern about who's going to pay and are you going to get the money back? And are we splitting it equally? Or people paying for their bar tabs? Because you in the app can just do everything. But even the conversation that happens on trips, it happens at dinner. I had alcohol. I didn't have alcoholic the Venmo requests that come and you're like, Wait, I don't understand what I'm paying for here. It's gotta lay it out before I am. Really, I'm really stringent about that because I don't drink alcohol at all. So I refused to pay for anyone else's alcohol. I e Likewise, a couple of my best friends are vegan, so they're not really eating anything when we go out. I remember I traveled with six girlfriends to Brazil and as part of our economy. It was fantastic. And we, as part of our trip, we went and we had all of the meats on my to vegan friends were there and you know, when it came around to displaying the bill or what have you. I mean, that had to be a really important consideration because they weren't way we're eating. Absolutely. Furthermore, I think that if we're not able to bridge those conversations verbally about expenditures and what type of experiences we wanna have, let's throw up Pinterest Mood Board. You know what type of hotel. Do you envision yourself being in? Well, guess what? If somebody is putting a photo up of if someone's pinning Ah, a photo of a hostile on somebody else's pinning. Ah, the Four Seasons. Well, we understand that there's a mismatch. They're equally important is having that discussion as to what you're going to do as a group versus what you're going to do by yourself. I am an extroverted introvert. I'm an amber effort. I get energy, draw energy from people, but then they tire me out, and I actually just want to sit in the room and do something by myself in the dark. Eso really making it clear that you know what? I'm going to have my alone time from 2 to 5 every day or what have you? Um, as we travel in a group, this general understanding of not having to move in lockstep is so, so, so important. And I think that if we do have that conversation beforehand, we can avoid ah, lot of tears. A lot of you know, uh, descent on also, financially, if you are like, I can afford to do two of these four experiences, but I'm going to dip out of the you know, those two big ticket item experiences because I want to go on this trip and I can't afford it. So I'll sit those two out. But I'll do these to it. It's a conversation. And I think also, if you are not willing in a place to have a conversation about money and finances, you probably shouldn't be going on a holiday with these people because, like that, you should what? In whatever situation, you should be able to have a conference. You're going to travel with these people 24 7, Whatever it is, if you can't have money conversation before you go there, probably not people. You should be with them, and money is the way the world works. I mean, you will be. These conversations are imminent because everything you do wanna trip involves money. We don't work. We don't live in a barter society anymore. So there is going to be some sort of expenditure being made until you need to be comfortable. Um, to do so. And to have that conversation on those things add up a swell. Sorry. Even just we've talked to a lot of women about travel for hen parties. What do you call them over here? Bachelorette parties on stuff like those things add like they and they people have come to us with bills.
