Choosing the right itinerary, organising shopping and cooking on board the houseboat: the first steps for a holiday with friends.
The first thing to do is to choose the right itinerary for the group from those available, prioritising the style of holiday you have set for yourself. You can choose between nature and fun-oriented itineraries, but how you live your holiday will always be up to you, thanks to the many possible activities, the non-obligatory extras on board the houseboats and the wonders that Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia can offer.
Once the itinerary has been chosen, it will be important to organise spending effectively. Before leaving, establish a budget and divide the expenses among the participants. Also organise a shopping list and establish who will be in charge of purchasing the products. Remember that, on board, cooking is the heart of group life: get ready to experiment with new and tasty recipes, but also to indulge in a few dinners based on typical local products, such as the delicious seafood from Grado, radicchio from Treviso, the purple artichoke from Sant'Erasmo, clams from Chioggia, Venetian cod and much more.
A boating holiday with friends is also the ideal opportunity to have fun together and create new memories. Organise games, cooking challenges, perhaps using the barbecue on the terrace of the houseboat, or themed evenings on board. But also remember to take time to relax and enjoy the beauty of the landscape and the peace and quiet of sailing.
How to manage living together on board the houseboat while on holiday with friends
Living together on board a houseboat can also present some challenges: respect for common spaces, time management and activities. Here are some tips for harmonious cohabitation on board:
- Respect the common areas: each person must contribute to maintaining order and cleanliness on board, avoiding leaving scattered objects or soiling the common areas.
- Organise your time and activities: draw up a sailing and sightseeing schedule together, but also treat yourself to moments of relaxation and rest.
- Communicate openly and honestly: if you have any difficulties or special needs, talk openly and honestly about them with the other group members. Communication is essential to maintain a calm and relaxed atmosphere.
A river holiday with friends is the perfect opportunity to share moments of fun, relaxation and discovery of the beauty of the area. Choose the itinerary you prefer, organise your shopping and activities effectively, and treat yourself to an unforgettable experience.
