Here are some tips to keep in mind when you travel with your partner.india Updated: Nov 30, 2011 13:27 IST
Plan together :
It’s important that you both feel like you have a part in the trip’s success. Check out all accommodations from bed & breakfasts to boutique hotels, vacation rentals to spa resorts. Take the virtual tours, read the guest reviews, check out the location relative to the sites you want to see and book it, together.
Work with each other’s strengths:
While planning, if one of you is a savvy researcher then perhaps that person can do the destination investigation, while the other could be responsible for booking the flights or hotels. Working with each other’s strengths is even more important while travelling. Don’t be afraid to play to each other’s strengths.
Factor in downtime for your vacation as well as extra time while sightseeing. You never know when you will want to spend some additional time in a museum, or on the beach. And you’ll appreciate not having the pressure to be on time or the disappointment of missing out on an opportunity.
Are you tired? Do you want to stay in this town for another day? How quickly we forget that we are not mind-readers. Be sure to let your sweetheart know what you’re thinking before it’s too late to do something about it. When travelling, you are out of your normal rhythm and routine so it’s important that you are sharing your needs and desires even if you are used to your honey knowing what those things are.
