You can call her in the middle of the night because you’re worried your boss hates you. She borrows your clothes. Your fondest memories all have her in them. Your BFF is someone you rely on, laugh at the good times with, and support each other during the bad. She’s always there for you. So give your BFF some love. Show her how much you appreciate her by planning a girls’ weekend away and leave the world’s worries behind for a day or two.
You might not be able to fly internationally for a long weekend but there are plenty of breaks you can take with your bestie:
Road trip: Pack some practical clothes that make you look and feel good, grab heaps of water and other drinks, pack a picnic, stock up on some awesome tunes, and go. You can plan your road trip using one of the many apps out there. Just make sure you take lots of pictures of the two of you at all the interesting places you stop.

Sightseeing in your ‘hood: You don’t have to go very far to have an awesome weekend with your best friend. Grab a guide book and explore your town as if you’ve never been there before. Visit all those touristy exhibitions and must-see sights that you’ve never been to, because you live there. Try out that flash new restaurant that’s just opened, or look for tiny artisanal markets filled with the weird and wonderful. Have a crazy morning in the park, on the swings, or order frothy double chocolate espresso milkshakes at 10am, just because you can. Travel your ‘hood.
Luxury hotel: If you are a duo who appreciate something more luxurious, splurge together on a night or two at the plushest hotel you can afford. Then mince around in the complimentary bathrobes. Drink a glass or two (or four or five) of bubbly, get in some retail therapy, and check out the facilities. Drink cocktails at the hotel bar, wear your best frock, order room service, and sip Champagne as you watch TV in your room. Spa or sauna anyone? Bali Hotel: Viceroy Bali
Pamper weekend: You and your BFF could also plan a pamper weekend. Book in at a spa and indulge in facials, massages, hot wraps, and more bubbly (we forgot to mention that bubbly is also a must on any trip, just don’t drink and drive!). Top 5 holistic spas in the USA
It doesn’t matter what you decide to do – just make sure it’s something you’ll both love. Shower your BFF with some much needed love and give yourself some traveled-inspired TLC while you’re at it too. Good times for good friends!
