Going on your first vacation together as a couple can be both relaxing and enjoyable. This article will serve as an in-depth guide on how to survive your first vacation together as a couple. Remember that your first vacation together will probably point out some things about your significant other that you never knew before.
The first thing you can do is take some time and plan the vacation together. This will allow each person to have a say in where to go, how long to stay, and what kinds of activities you can do together as a couple while on your vacation. For some couples, their first vacation together is actually their honeymoon. Sometimes the bride has no idea where they are going. This was the case with me. When I got married my husband had it all planned to go to Las Vegas and I didn’t know where we were going until we were at the airport getting ready to fly out. We were scheduled to fly out the early morning after our reception night. Let’s just say we didn’t get any sleep at all and had to drive two hours just to get to the airport to fly out at 5 in the morning. We left some of the important documents back at the hotel and had to turn around, half way there, and go get the paper work. We almost missed our flight.
My advice would be to plan the vacation with enough time for mishaps. You never know what can happen before you even leave for your vacation. Making a list is very helpful. You should list important things like clothing, bathing suits, sun screen, toiletries, important papers, etc. As you both start packing for the trip, start marking things off the list and set them aside. It doesn’t hurt to double check the list before you head out and make sure you have everything you need.
Once you arrive at your destination, exploring the area can be very fun and exciting. On our first vacation as a couple we stayed at a very exciting hotel. This place had a lot to do inside the hotel and you pretty much never had to leave if you didn’t want to. This can be a good or a bad thing. We ended up getting a little bored and decided to head out and see what else Vegas had to offer. My advice would be to get out and explore the area as a couple. You can discover some tasty places to eat and some cute shops to buy souvenirs, as well as experience the local culture.
Don’t be surprised if you get sick of each other on your first vacation, I know we did. You may want to do some things apart for the day and then come back and do something together. This is perfectly ok to do.
Remember to make your first vacation romantic. I’m sure there will probably be some ups and downs on your first vacation but you can always turn it into something fun and romantic. Keep each others needs and wants in mind and be accommodating to each other. During this vacationing time, you can grow together as a couple and learn things about each other that you never knew before.
