    Can you say: Feel free to message me and maybe we can/could plan a trip together som

    Can you say:

    Feel free to message me and maybe we can/could plan a trip together somewhere.

    Are both okay? What's the difference?

    They're both fine. My only very slight change would be to remove "and" if you use "could".

    Feel free to message me and maybe we can plan a trip together somewhere.
    Feel free to message me. Maybe we could plan a trip together somewhere.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    What's the difference between using can and could here?

    According to http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/perceive , I take it to mean 'the meaning perceived by the person being addressed' in this context.

    Not a teacher.
