|Subject: Re: Traveler's Aid: Helping Others Plan Trips|
Some family members do ask for my help when they're planning a trip - I love helping with that sort of stuff so much that I almost give myself a headache trying not to interfere/help until invited ;-D
Others (family and friends) prefer to make their own mistakes and call them their own - that attitude surprises me I must admit. It would make more sense from my point of view to ask for help, take the notes or advice on board, then do your own thing on the trip but at least have the benefit of pooled *knowledge* and *options*.
That said, my parents love it when I help plan their trips.
So move over and make room on the travel-control-freak couch because I'm a card-carrying member! :) Megan Brisbane, Australia
