Having a date night with your spouse is fantastic, but sometimes you desire more than that. Couples that travel together can reap some amazing relationship benefits. Travelling together sparks intimacy and romance and can help to rebuild your relationship. Whether you are hoping to solidify an already strong bond, or just relax with the one you love, planning a romantic getaway is a fantastic way to celebrate your relationship together.
Sit down with your spouse and discuss where you want to go for your romantic getaway. Planning together can be a fun part of the process and will ensure that you both get what you want out of the vacation.
Set a Budget
This may very well be the most unromantic part of the getaway planning process but it’s a necessary evil. Ensuring that you have a budget outlined will help to make sure that your mind is on romance and enjoyment instead of finances while enjoying your vacation.
Choose Your Destination
Now that you have your budget and a list of places you both want to visit, it is time to choose your destination. Pick one that you both agree on, that coincides with your budget and has romantic packages you can take advantage of. Finding a destination that speaks to both of you is a very important part of planning your romantic getaway.
Plan Activities… Or Don’t
Once you have booked your destination and know the dates you will be travelling you can start planning some activities to participate in. Many destination websites have a section dedicated to activities that you can participate in on your visit. Booking activities in advance may be a good idea, especially if you are visiting a popular destination. If you want to be more spontaneous, you don’t have to book anything at all. It may be more exciting and romantic to just go with the flow.
Commit to Connecting
It can be difficult to truly connect with your spouse when you are burdened with all the distractions that come with technology. Social media, work emails and the like can take the focus away from the original intention of the getaway, romance. Make a pact to have some 100% device-free time while on your vacation. If you are going to snap a photo, do so but then put your device away again. Take the time to really connect with each other, you can connect to the internet anytime.
Once you have reached your destination, you need to make sure that you take some time to relax together. Visit the hot tub and have a soak together, book a couple’s massage at the spa or even just make time to lay in bed and enjoy room service. Don’t forget that a vacation is about relaxation, it’s easier to connect with one another when you are stress-free.
Planning a romantic getaway with your spouse is a great way to strengthen your relationship. Make sure you plan your vacation properly, commit to connecting and find the time to relax together, and this getaway will be a romantic memory you can share.
