15 Tips For Traveling With Your Significant Other

When you plan a journey with your significant other, its not just about the destination, the reason, the budget, the flights, the hotels etc. The journey is an opportunity, to discover/ re-discover each other. It can be said, without a doubt, that every time you travel with someone, you learn something new about them.

So whether youre going away for the weekend, or a week long vacation, a month long knapsack journey, or even merely attending a marriage the journey is, in itself, very important to your relationship. Because it will help you see your partner in a new light.

So, heres a few tips that I could think of

1. Discuss the flight timings, and the hotel alternatives with them before booking . If you like night flights, and your partner doesnt, you will have a grumpy person with you when you land and you dont want that. Also, if your partner prefers charming boutique hotels to high rise five-star hotels, then you might want to know before you volume. So do your searches and bookings together. Its actually a fun bonding exercise. And dont shy away from an upgrade if you are able afford it, flight or hotel. It will build you both happier people throughout the trip.

2. Figure out your partners travel behaviour at the airport. Are they the type who like to shop at obligation free, walk around, grab a brew or bite at the airport, or do they like to get there just in time to board the flight. Make room for each others choices.

3. Some people are flight talkers, some are flight sleepers, some are flight movie marathon runners . Figure yours out. And tell each other. Tip sometimes having some( or a lot of) wine with your in-flight meal can be a precursor to a fun conversation.

4. Provided you have your transportation to your hotel all done, and you get there after a long, tiring flight, the first thing you should check is if the hotel looks as nice as the pictures ( they are deceiving a lot of the time ), and if your partner likes it. Trust me, there are shockers a plenty when it is necessary to hotels right from the location being in a weird component/ street, to the carpet aroma in the rooms, or even merely the hot water. This is why you should read reviews online before booking a hotel. But if youre still in for a amaze after all your research, ask your partner what they would like, and both of you decide together if you want to stay or change. Ive come to realize that if youre not happy with your hotel/ room, the place where you remainder, your energy is not going to be at its best on the trip.

So even though there might be a little early tension in the journey if the hotel isnt great, merely be prepared for it, and make sure you ease it out by calmly figuring out a solution together.

5. Youre sharing space with someone, and youre living out of a suitcase . Try not to be sloppy. Maintain the bathroom floor dry, keep the wash basin region dry, dont throw your towels around all over the room, keep your stuff in your suitcases or in the part of the room where your stuff is. Dont have it strewn all over the place. Not merely does it look/ feeling untidy to the other person, it messes up the energy in your room. So this is just basic, general stuff that it is possible to even stick to at home. But Im emphasizing on this more during a journey because you are sharing space with a lovely person and you want to build them more comfortable and happy around you than less. 6. Ask your partner what kind of things he/ she likes to do in a new place . If you like exploring old houses/ monuments, and he/ she prefers to check out the bar/ club scene, then mix the two together and make sure you both enjoy the other persons interest with them. Thats what being together on a trip is about. Compromising is key, be open to doing new things even though they might not be your interest. Youll find that sometimes trying something new with your partner might just spark a new interest in you and you might grow to love that activity.

7. Hold hands while walking around and exploring the place together.

8. Dont be camera-crazy like some tourists , but definitely take some memorable pictures together. In the future, these pictures will always build you smile.( Avoid the classic stand together and smile poses .)

9. If youre strolling a lot on the journey, ask your partner when theyd like to rest / take a break. Induce a beverages break out of it.;)

10. If one of you falls sick on the journey, dont left open alone and run off to explore . This is where you show them your priority. Stay back in the hotel room with them, the point was to spend time together on a violate. So do it while watching tv together in bed if thats how it turns out. No big deal. The last thing you want is to be left alone when youre unwell, in a new country, all alone in a hotel room with nothing to do. So dont do that to them either. Classic solution for situations like this carry a pack of cards or uno with you. I always have a pack in my suitcase. Uno always turns things fun.:)

11. While I dont think you should leave the other person alone when youre unwell, I do believe that it can be healthy to spend some time apart even on your journey together. For example, one of you loves shopping or scuba diving, and the other one loves spas or merely lazing at the pool/ beach well, you can split up and each do your thing for a couple of hours. Its healthy, it will allow you to miss each other for a bit, and who knows, it might just give you both a fun tale to share later.

12. Be aware of each others requires at all times. Seem after each other. Be considerate.

13. Get drunk together . 14. Have conversations with strangers together . In a bar, on the street, doesnt matter. Engage in a healthy dialogue with a new person/ couple youll learn something new, and youll make a memory. 15. The most important one LEAVE YOUR PHONE IN THE ROOM . And DONT CONNECT TO WIFI, anywhere. Youre on this vacation so you can DISCONNECT FROM THE WORLD, and merely be with your partner. Get your together day. Getting on Facebook, updating your status, checking in whats it all worth ??? NOTHING. The world will not stop running if you dont check your Facebook for a few days. Theres a live human being in front of you that you love/ am worried about, whose traveled hundreds of miles away from home to spend time with YOU so be there WITH THEM, completely.

Share tales, talk, giggle, get to know one another on a new level recollect, that is the whole point. You never get to do that when youre at home in your city. Do it now. Dont waste time on the usual crap you fill your life with back home. Youll never look back on your life when youre old and think I wish I had checked my Facebook/ Twitter/ Instagram more often. But you are able to regret not having made the most out of time together with your partner.

And finally life is short, day is short, and your journey is definitely short. So merely have fun, get to know each other on a deeper, newer level, remember that being with each other was the point of the journey, let your frets and tensions go, and enjoy your time together! Its never going to come back.
