IELTS Speaking topic: A time that you and your friend had a disagreement

Describe a time that you and your friend had a disagreement.
You should say:
when this happened
who you disagreed with
what you and your friend argued about
and if you two solved the disagreement in the end.

Well, recently I had a disagreement with one of my close friends. We were planning a long travel to the Tibet several days later, but we were not sure how many people went there together. I suggested that we just went on the trip with two or there people together because it would be very difficult to organise the trip to meet different people’s needs. But my friend insisted that we should go with group of people because it would be more fun and secure. I admitted his opinion was reasonable but didn’t want to compromise as I didn’t want to take risk to plan everything for so many people in such unfamiliar place, and I thought he didn’t care.

Ultimately after endless disagreement and even quarrels, I found myself couldn’t express myself well and became more and more frustrated and less effective at explaining my feelings. So I left him that day without any results. The next day, after I calmed down again, I sent him a text message to tell him what I was concerning, attempting to communicate without angry or overly emotional exchanges. Finally, he replied to me that he understood my consideration now, and agreed with my plan.
