PLAN YOUR BUDGET BEFOREHAND
Budget should fall under your top priorities when traveling. Of course, you two wouldn’t wanna go over budget only to end up with no single penny in your pocket. Do not forget to have a serious budget segregation and allotment to avoid serious problems when you landed your destination and to minimize disputes.
TALK AND COMPROMISE
You want to visit the museum and she wants to just go shopping. Sure! this happens all the time.
It is always best to talk and compromise, plan your itineraries and make sure that both parties are happy with what’s listed on your sheet.
MANAGE BOTH OF YOUR EXPECTATIONS
Trying to imagine you and your beau walking along the shores of Maldives. Sure what could be more romantic than romanticizing this view right? But as you two arrive, mishaps and “expectations vs. realities” incidents are inevitable. So better not set your standards too high and not too low, so you both could end up happy while enjoying your trip.
PREPARE TO SEE HIS/HER WORST
How many days will you guys be out of the country, say 5 days and 4 nights at the least. Be sure to prep yourself to accept his/her bad side, from the way he snore the night off to the way she easily get agitated by your fickle decisions. You know, it is not all flowers and choc’lates!
EXPECT PROBLEMS AND MISHAPS
You’ll never appreciate the best, if you didn’t experience the worst. So prepare to experience mishaps along the way, and just laugh it all off.
You planned your itinerary so well, you budgeted so perfectly that nothing’s gonna go wrong. But, again, it is essential for you two to divide tasks and priorities so you both would come up with the best vacation you could imagine.
TRY SOMETHING NEW TOGETHER
This happens once in every year, so might as well add on your list a bungee jump with your partner, or a sky dive? Go for extremes and at the same time fun! After all, best experiences are best shared with your partner.
