    22 Things That Happen When You Go On Holiday With Your Best Friend

    There is no one better to explore the world with, or sit on a beach eating ice cream for a week with.

    1. Before you go you'll discuss what you're packing to see what you can share.

    "I've got aftersun so you don't need that. Do you think we can share deodorant?"

    2. You probably booked the cheapest flight possible, so you have to be at the airport at 4am.

    You'll both look like crap, but it doesn't matter because they've seen you looking worse.

    3. You'll fall asleep on each other on the plane.
