(1) Choose a destination you are both interested in
Choosing a destination that interests you both is key to your trip as a couple being a success. You do not want to start off on the wrong foot where one of you is not happy about being in a particular country or city. It will just lead to tension and bad vibes, which will ruin your holiday. So to avoid such negativity, sit down together and decide as a team where your next adventure will be.
(2) Decide on a budget
Planning your budget is extremely important, especially when it comes to things like food and entertainment. In order to add structure into your spending, try and set a daily budget. Get a sense of how expensive things will be at your destination by checking TripAdvisor. Another useful tip is to watch Youtube videos about the particular country you will be visiting. All of the available content will get you both mentally prepared on what to expect and it will give you both a good reference point on how to decide on your budget. This is key to really getting the most out of your trip together and your wallet will thank you later.
(3) Do Something Romantic
Do something romantic everyday. This will give you guys a chance to communicate and remind each other why you fell in love with each other.
(4) Laugh when things go wrong
Things will definitely go wrong during your trip. It may be missing your flight or even arriving at the wrong hotel. When things go wrong, avoid blaming each other and try and see the humour in the situation. Good memories together can often come of situations that seem bad.
Situations that go wrong can even bring you and your partner closer together. In a few years down the road, both of you will look back and laugh.
Compromise is the golden relationship rule. On holiday you may not always see eye to eye, but try to compromise so you can both can get the most out of your trip together.
Be flexible and spontaneous. Things may not always go according to plan, but as long as you are both comfortable with that, your trip together will be one to remember.
