You may have decided on a destination but have very different ideas of what will take place once you get there. Person A in the relationship dreams of a romantic getaway spent parked in a hammock, fruity drink in hand, while Person B wants to engage in more adventurous pursuits like scuba diving, island hopping, and water skiing. Likewise, your plans to follow a jam-packed, super detailed itinerary may not jive with your partner's natural inclination to aimlessly meander around a city. So be sure to talk through your preferences and draft up a list of activities and experiences you both agree on before embarking on your journey.
Not only will talking help your travels go more smoothly, it also gives your partner a chance to voice their wants for the trip. You don't have to do everything together, but a list of agreed upon activities will make the trip easier. For more tips on travelling with a partner, check out the full post via the link below.
