silently Posted November 18, 2017 Share Posted November 18, 2017 So my friends and I started planning a trip to Germany next year (we're from the US). We're getting everything figured out and so far most of my friends can go/afford it/parents will let them. I just talked to my mom tonight about it and she was instantly super unsure about it and said she'd really have to think about it. (but it really sounded like a no) I'm 19 years old (20 in about 6 months) and all of my friends ages range from 20-22. I will be paying for the trip with my own money that I've saved up from work. One of the friends coming has traveled to many countries before and knows her way around. (her sister has also lived in the area of Germany we want to stay and can help us get to know the area) This friend is also someone I've been friends with since I was a kid, there for my mom knows her and her family really well and her parents are fine with it. Also, another plus is that we're meeting a good friend of mine who has lived in Germany his whole life so he will be able to guide us and help us with language barriers and such. She basically told me that she trusts me and my friends but doesn't know the type of 'environment' in another country. She thinks it's unsafe and that we'll get preyed on because we're young tourists. (She has never traveled outside of the US before and I've only been out of my state twice in my life, so I think the lack of experience is what worries her) But that's why I'm going with other people who are experienced! Is there anyway I could convince her into letting me go? Link to comment
