Who makes an itinerary?
I'd prefer to let my friends plan.
I'll plan once I'm there. My friends are too indecisive.
Consulting with friends/family.
My friends planned it.
By which place looks the most appealing in pictures I found online.
The place that seems the most exciting.
Hotel booking, dining reservation, tour times-- and have I packed a spare of everything in my suitcase?
If my friends have started planning.
It's a whole week away? I'll start packing in a few days.
That the trip won't live up to its hype. I've been bragging too much about this trip.
If I'll have access to wifi in order to upload all of my pictures to Instagram.
One. That should be enough, right?
Five. I'll bring some extras--my friends may need them.
Six, with my initials written on them in Sharpie marker.
A few in different colors.
The item with the most positive mentions in Yelp reviews. (I checked before we arrived)
I'll get what my friends ordered.
Whatever the waiter/waitress recommends.
The item on the menu that I can actually pronounce.
The daily special-- the picture on the menu convinced me.
Call the hotel to ensure our rooms are ready.
Check to see that all friends/family are accounted for.
Find the coolest souvenir shop.
Panic at the baggage claim. What color was my suitcase?
Open Instagram to upload a picture I took on the plane. #flyinghigh
