Some people prefer solo travel, others prefer traveling in groups. Myself, I always like traveling with someone because during my trips there are so many wonderful moments that are even more magical when shared with a loved one or friend.
Of course it's not always roses all the time. Here are a few tips to make sure you will enjoy your time together:
Communicate– Probably the most tip important on any trip with more than one person. Even though you might think you know your partner very well and vice versa, you are not mind readers. You can avoid frustration or misunderstandings by planning out what you both want to see and do during the trip.
Sacrifice– You and your partner may have different interests, but make each other happy by joining them in what they like to do. Compromise and you will both benefit in the end.
Plan– You don't have to over-plan your trip, leave room for spontaneity, but plan a few activities you know you will both enjoy. This way you will feel like you are having a couple’s trip.
Havesome 'me' time – You don't have to spend every minute of every day together just because you are on a trip together. If you like shopping and your partner really dreads it, you are better off going shopping by yourself and they can enjoy some down time. When you reunite after an afternoon, you can catch up over dinner and turn that 'me' time into a fun date night.
Relax– Make sure to plan in some time to relax, some trips can be overbooked with things you want to see and do and are exhausting. But be careful, when you are tired, you are more vulnerable to getting annoyed with each other over things you normally would not argue about.
Tasks– If each of you has their own task, you will make life easier on both of you by eliminating the chance of frustration that one can feel over having to do everything. For example, someone is in charge of the flights and the other looks for a nice place to stay. Everyone has his or her own talents, be it a good organizer or a good driver, use it to your advantage.
Jointmoney – Have money set in a joint account or agree on an amount you both would like to spend on your vacation. If you would like to splurge on something for yourself, have some of your own spending money with you.
