CLEO (Malaysia) - - TRAVEL SPECIAL -

here’s just no greater feel­ing than head­ing off to an ex­otic des­ti­na­tion, im­mers­ing in new cul­tures and cu­rat­ing that envy-in­duc­ing In­sta­gram feed. How­ever, what’s not so en­joy­able is when your com­pan­ion is be­ing a royal pain. If you sus­pect you’re about to head off on a big hol­i­day with any of the fol­low­ing travel species, heed the ad­vice of Con­tiki tour man­ager Jes­sica Nann. She’s dealt with ev­ery kind of chal­leng­ing trav­eller imag­in­able. And there are a lot of them ... has mapped your itin­er­ary down to how long you get for toi­let breaks can turn your trip into some­thing re­sem­bling a stint at Litch­field Pen­i­ten­tiary. Jes­sica says it’s im­por­tant to gen­tly re­mind them it’s okay to go with the flow, and that the best ex­pe­ri­ences aren’t al­ways planned. “When our tour group was on the road in Switzer­land en route to Lucerne, we hit bad traf­fic,” she re­calls. “It was com­pletely out of our con­trol but it meant we could have a bit of a rest out­side the coach. “There was lots of snow where the bus stopped and we had a big snow­ball fight, which was re­ally cool for those who had never seen snow be­fore!” If you think you’re guilty, re­mem­ber to make ev­ery mo­ment mat­ter!
