1. It's a rite of passage
Forget about drinking in a field or meeting someone for the first time, going on a girly holiday is the ultimate rite of passage for every female. Rite of passages aren't something we get to experience with our work BFF so why not book a break away somewhere and have some craic away from spreadsheets and tills?
2. You'll really get to know your work pal
They say you don't know someone until you live with them. Well, you won't have the full measure of your mates until you've travelled and gotten lost in the Greek countryside with them. Who's the most chilled out, who's the anal one, who's the sessioner, who always loses the room key? All will become clear after a few days away together.
3. For the mad chats
When it comes to the chats on a girls holiday, shit gets very real. Social pleasantries and conversation filters go out the window and you'll find yourself talking about anything and everything. Sex, periods and bowel movements are all up for discussion.
4. You'll have great craic
Of all the things we're sure of, this is a rock-solid guarantee. There'll be times when you'll have a pain in your sides from laughing so much and you'll take home stories that you'll be reminiscing about for years to come.
There was this one time, at band camp...
5. To go on the hunt for lads
Inhibitions are usually left at the door when it comes to going on holiday and if you're single, there's no better time to go on the prowl for a few hotties than when you're away with your work BFF.
6. It's usually one big session
One euro for a shot? I'll take 10!
7. The photo ops are endless
The photo collection from a trip with your other half is likely to consist of pictures of two of you. At dinner, chilling by the pool, outside the hotel, beside a famous monument. The excitement is palpable. We can promise you the photos from your trip with your mate will be A LOT more interesting.
8. For that holiday song
No trip is complete without a personalised soundtrack and one song, in particular, will dominate your time away. When you hear it at home, it will remind you of one of the best times of your life.
9. You'll feel like you're missing your right arm when you get home
They might have wrecked your head in parts but a few hours on home soil and you'll miss them terribly. At least you'll get to relive all your best stories over a cup of tea in work.
