Chances are you and your girls will step into the museum and revert into shy school girls, blushing and giggling as if you’ve never experienced sex before!

Now, with this being a girls trip, who’s to say that these giggles aren’t intensified with a few libations from the local bars you stopped at before arriving at the museum…


Speaking of libations, make sure you let the ladies know that you’ve made transportation accommodations that allow you all to safely maneuver through the city.
