1. Selecting the destination
The most important aspect of travelling is the destination. You don’t just visit any random place you have no idea about. There is still a possibility of doing this when you are travelling solo but as a couple, you need to decide your destination wisely. The place must be interesting and appealing to both of you. The duo must make sure that both their interest lies in the place. Make sure that the points of attractions are enjoyable.
2. The Budget
Discussing and setting a budget for the trip is essential. You must plan the whole trip according to the set budget and also decide it pre-hand that who is going to bear what expenses. It is also convenient if one of you pays for the entire trip wherever and whenever necessary and your partners will reimburse your account after returning back from the trip. This is essential in order to avoid conflicts regarding who spent more than the other.
3. Spend accordingly
After deciding the budget, it is also necessary that you pay attention to your partner’s spending habits. If your partner is not a spendthrift, your excessive spending habits might turn him/her off. Try and control your expenses wherever possible. If your partner thinks that staying in a particular hotel will add unnecessary expense, you should try other options. Mutual consent and understanding is a must while travelling as a couple.
4. Avoid getting HANGRY
Okay, so hangry stands for ‘hungry + angry’! Make it a point to have meals and snacks at regular intervals. It often happens that people lose their cool because of starving for long hours. You must not keep your partner waiting if you are not in the mood to grab a mouthful. Also, make sure to pay heed to your partner’s choices and head towards eateries that cater to both of yours taste. Enjoying the local delicacies together would definitely add a charm to your trip.
You have to compromise in order to make your trip worth remembering. Stubbornness will only spoil the fun. You may have to let go of your choices sometimes in order to make your partner happy. Avoid taking decisions on your own and learn to discuss everything with your partner before finalizing things. This will also keep your relationship healthy.
Do unusual stuff with your partner. Indulge in sports, become an adrenaline junkie even if you aren’t and take up challenges. You will love the thrill and excitement and having your partner by your side will boost your confidence. It will be a unique experience and you both will love every bit of it when you recall the memories after returning back from the trip.
7. Give space
If you feel your partner is looking for some personal space, please give them some time alone. Do not force yourself on your partner. If suppose you love shopping but it irritates your guy, let him rest in the hotel room for some time and you can head towards the market area and have a fun shopping time. Who knows if he misses you hard and plans something big while you are away?
Discover yourself from the eyes of your partner. Spend ample time with him/her and try to know what your partner thinks about you. Also, knowing about each other will take you a step closer towards your partner. Discover new lands, new places, and new people; but do it all together. Your trip can become the trip of your lifetime if you discover the inner YOU!
9. Taking Care
You must take care of yourself as well as your partner. Remember that you are not travelling in solo but with your companion. If you feel that your partner is getting tired and is in need of rest, head back to the hotel even if it demands a change in the schedule.
10. Forgive and forget
You may have clashes and arguments but do not let these petty matters spoil the fun. Take things lightly and whenever an adverse situation arises between the two of you just kiss and make up. If your partner is annoyed and irritated, do not just react in the same manner. Try to calm him/her down and do something that would make him/her happy. Plan a romantic dinner date and take your partner to a nearby romantic attraction. Live every moment to the fullest.
11. Capture the memories
You absolutely need to have gorgeous and awesome pictures with your partner. Make memories and record them. Do not always be behind the lens and also don’t keep getting clicked in solo. Pictures tend to be more beautiful with your better half, isn’t it? You both will relish the moments after the trip gets over.
12. Rest and relax
Don’t keep your schedule too packed. It may make both of you tired and the excitement drops. You cannot enjoy the trip until and unless you feel fresh and light. You should have short breaks and rest time in between so that you can charge up as and when required.
Are you all set to take off with your partner? Go live life to the fullest! Happy travel!
