Some Things I’ve Learned From My First Family Travel as an Adult

Since there’s going to be two public holidays in Indonesia earlier this month, we then decided to pick the later date of August to start our trip. Anyway, since I’m probably the only person in the family who often travels once in a while, I’ve been in charge of the trip preparation in general.

But in case you didn’t know, I get so used to travel solo that preparing this road trip was a bit more complex than usual. Especially since I will travel with my mom, my brother, and my cousin. All of them have different traveling styles that I need to comprehend and adjust in the masterplan.

Anyway, I know so many solo travelers find it challenging to prepare a group trip. So then I decided to share what I’ve done so far during the preparation for my family vacation!
