How to Plan the Perfect Break with Your Significant Other

How to Plan the Perfect Break with Your Significant Other


Going on a trip with your significant other is always a great idea. Not only do you get to experience the world, youget to develop your relationship and have a few romantic adventures along the way. Trips are great times to relax, explore, and even perhaps get to know each other again. That’s because not only is the change of pace great for your relationship, you will also be spending the time exclusively alone with each other.

The quality of the trip will affect how much fun you have on it, which is why planning with your partner can help you both make the most of the experience:

Choose a Destination

Before you can start planning or researching anything else, you need to first pick a destination. This destination doesn’t have to be set in stone, either. You could choose to go on a trip through a country instead. You might choose a destination that isn’t on your list simply because it is well within reach of two or more places you do want to visit, and so on. Regardless of where you go or what kind of trip you plan, do so together to ensure that everyone is on board and excited.

 Agree on the Type of Trip You Are Going On

Just as you should agree on where you are going together, so too should you agree on what kind of trip you are going on. If you plan on romantic meals and slow strolls through the city, while your partner wants to check off all of the top sights, you will clash once you are there. Sort out what you should both expect beforehand so that no one is disappointed and you can make the most of your trip.

 Read Travel Blogs and Gain Insider’s Knowledge

Once you have your destination and what kind of trip you will be going on, it’s time to find things to do and places to go, and there is no better place to find this information than a travel blog. You can visit this VacationRenter Blog, for instance, to gain insider’s knowledge of communities around the world, from what to pack to where to go, and even top news that you should follow before you set off.

Create a Master List

What is important to note, however, that there are some things you should plan, and others you should let be. Going through travel blogs is a great way to create a master list that you can save into your phone or onto a map app. This will let you choose on the day what you want to do, based on what’s closest. The only time you should set in stone your day’s plans is when there are events or bookings required, and you have to book these events and experiences in advance. Other than that, let your heart take you where you want it to go, and spice up your getaway with a bit of adventure.

There is no better way to travel than with your partner, and by planning correctly,you can both ensure you know the best places to go and save some space for spontaneity and adventure. Combined, you can have the perfect romantic getaway every time you jet off!

    My partner and I went on our first holiday together last year, which was our fourth year together, and it was an amazing experience. We managed to find a good balance between adventuring and relaxing, which was important, and it was absolutely amazing to discover a brand new place with your best friend. We went on our second holiday this year, and are brainstorming where we’ll go in 2019. I can’t wait to see the world together!

    I’m not much of a solo traveler and sharing trips with my partner is something that we enjoyed from the start of our relationship. However, no matter how familiar you are with one another I do also think, as you said, that it’s always good to plan together and to both agree on the places that you will see, in order to avoid those minor clashes:) Surprises are also fun, but not all the time, right?

    This is great advice – it’s really all about communication and having the same expectations. I travel full-time with my husband now and we are constantly checking in with each other. We love a mix of spontaneity and schedule, and we try to find routine when we can.

    Agreeing on the kind of trip is mandatory. If you are planning an adventurous trip and your partner only wants to relax on the beack, it might be a problem!

      Ha, yes! That would be a problem…

    When you travel together, particularly long term, I think it makes your relationship stronger than ever. You learn so much about peoples behaviour and interests when you spend all your time with them. I think it can go one way or the other though, I’ve met quite a few people who had been in long-term relationships which went pear-shaped when they travelled together!

      I totally agree with you, it can definitely strengthen the relationship!

    It was a nice thought, I love it. One trip can make your relationship more strong and known about yourself. You can know about your partner deeply and It helps to move on together. I love this way and I want to go a trip with my beloved partner. Thanks for sharing the nice thought. This can help the partners to more love each other.
