I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of holidays with the hubby. Holidays are some of the most exciting times of our lives, and there’s nothing better than sharing a few days away doing something we love together.
Nonetheless, it’s important that you plan the best vacation possible. After all, a bad one could put huge strain your relationship. On a brighter note, a great holiday will bring you closer together and provide magical memories you can talk about for years to come.
Here are four essential tips that all couples should remember when booking their holidays together.
The first major decision that any holidaymaker faces is picking a destination. Quite frankly, the choice of vacation spot could dictate how much enjoyment you get from the trip.
It wasn’t that long ago that holidays were essentially restricted to the continent or country in which you resided. Nowadays, there’s a whole world out there just waiting to be explored. Heading to somewhere like Bali is a great way to experience a completely new culture, meet some beautiful people and see some breathtaking landscapes. After all, isn’t that what holidays are all about?
With so many fantastic destinations dotted over the globe, the only real dilemma is narrowing that shortlist down to a clear winner… and taking into account what your partner wants.
I also recommend New York or Paris for a city getaway, Noosa in Australia for beach life, Dubrovnik Old Town in Croatia for romance in a medieval city, or the Scottish Highlands for a fantastic road trip.
Don’t underestimate the impact that the accommodation can have on your vacation. To get the most out of your holiday, find accommodation where you can easily explore the local area and soak in the culture.
A poor choice of accommodation can quickly test your patience with each other and you don’t want such a simple item to ruin your enjoyment.
Consider the space you need and type of accommodation you want – you probably don’t want to be stuck in a tiny studio apartment for more than a couple of nights. Couples that travel together might also want to keep away from the family holiday resorts and book somewhere private.
Besides, if a little bit of luxury is a key factor of your holiday book your villa online. Or search for a private Airbnb or luxury hotel room. Having nice accommodation to relax in will take a huge weight off of your shoulders.
3. Bucket List
Holidays are a great chance to recharge our batteries and a great opportunity to step out of our comfort zone and experience something we never normally would. We all have a bucket list of things that we’d like to do during our lives; you should use your vacation as a way to tick off some of those items with your loved on.
Some people like to swim with dolphins and others like to go on a hot air balloon ride. Whatever you choose, there are plenty of attractions and experiences that can enjoy on your trip – just choose something you both like.
Finding something that both of you can enjoy together will help make the vacation an unforgettable experience. Those magical moments are something you can reminisce about in later life.
Before you get to enjoy the delights of your chosen vacation spot, you’ve got to get there. When travelling with a big group of friends, taking the indirect route can be a fun part of the adventure. When holidaying with your partner, though, you should aim to keep this aspect simple. You don’t have to fly first class, but you should make the journey comfortable.
Remember, there’s nothing wrong with a connecting flight. In fact, the little break can be quite nice when travelling a long distance. However, no couple wants to leave the plane knowing they’ve still got two train journeys and a four-hour coach ride to follow.
Believe us, that knowledge will quickly drain your enthusiasm – especially on the way home.
