Defer, Delay, Deflect

Dear Short Answers:
Last summer, two other married couples joined my husband and I on a two week trip to France. It started out well but by the end of the trip none of us were speaking to each other. One of the couples is now suggesting that we do it again next summer in Italy. My husband and I have avoided the topic whenever it comes up but now it’s getting awkward. They clearly must remember the trip differently than we do. Should we continue to deflect their invitations? Or do we simply tell them that we will never ever under any circumstances go on a trip with them again?
Feeling Pressured

Dear Pressured:
No reason to tell all — just tell them you want to vacation alone this year.
