Some people may have chemistry in most areas of life but not when they travel. Traveling is its own beast. The moment you remove someone from her environment where she can control her meals, where she sleeps, her schedule, and pretty much everything, she can change. A friend or partner who you thought was pretty relaxed can become a ball of nerves once it’s time to pack your bags. A friend who you considered to really have it together at home can become a disorganized mess while globetrotting. There’s really no right or wrong way to travel (though some would argue being flexible is critical), the important thing is that you travel with people who have the same philosophies about travel. If you don’t, then your trip has a good chance of being ruined. Here are signs you do—and don’t—have travel chemistry with someone.
You have the same accommodation standards
You have the same ideas about accommodations. Maybe, for example, you both just want to stay somewhere clean and affordable that’s near the sites. You don’t need a luxury resort, but the sheets can’t be stained. You don’t need to stay upstairs from a museum, but you’d like to be walking distance to one.
