How do I survive the first vacation together

How do I survive the first vacation together

The holidays require a special handling in order to avoid surprises. If you've re-traveled in the past and spent a holiday together with your partner, then the challenge is certainly less.

But if the relationship is recent and the holiday season is approaching and there is a common desire to spend it together, read the following tips carefully to protect yourself and your relationship.


Distance. The mood may be elevated, even the possibility of long-lasting breaks, but it is good to try something simple. That is, take the two-week journey you've always wanted to do in Thailand. The first step is to include holidays at a near distance, with a simple design and without much need of transport or transport changes. Even another European city with a direct flight is OK. For even safer, you can select a destination within the border.


Durance. The first contact of this type is always full of good or less good surprises, so it is good to make sure that the holiday frame does not burden any difficult situations. That's why it is good our holidays to be relatively short so as not to get tired of each others, without a break.


Expectations. Perhaps the idea of a surprise trip is tempting, but it is certainly a bad choice when we still do not know exactly the tastes of our other half. In other words, we may be intrigued by a five-day holiday in the cosmopolitan and noisy Ios, but on the other hand, it may seek a peaceful Ithaca. This does not mean, of course, that retreats have to be made only on one side. The goal is both to have good time. So put down all your favorite destinations and make the decision together.


Itinerary. When we say you need a good plan, we do not mean to visit any museum, archaeological site or gallery, based on a program... We must not forget that the purpose of our holiday is to relax and better knowing each other, in a beautiful setting. The part of the program concerns more practical aspects of travel, expenses, means of transport. For the rest, just be more spontaneous. 


Expences. Money can easily cause misinterpretations, especially if we have not solved or, in some way, assume how common bills will be paid. Is it going to be 50-50, will you pay alternatively for meals and drinks or something else? Surely take with you more money than you think you will spend. Also, from the outset, it is good to have a common recommended budget. Sooner or later there will be a problem if one is expecting to dine in the evening at the restaurant and the other to bet on the fast food.

The only way to avoid such a turn is to be completely honest with the still planning of the route. Everybody's wallet must be absolutely welcome, and if any financial difficulties are an obstacle to your vacation level, there must be understanding on the other side.


Mood. In your mind, you might have planned a dream trip, somewhere on a small island in the Aegean or in some corner of Messinia. But the unexpected ones are in the program. You may forget your cell phone on the other side of the city, spoil your car or have a noisy couple next door. It is difficult, but it is necessary for such things to be managed with humor and composure. These unexpected ones are that often leave a pleasant note at the end of the holiday!
