Make A Flawless Plan
Plan the romantic trip together
Make sure to ask your partner what he/she wants to do on a romantic trip, and the places he/she wants to visit. Because if you try to plan everything on your own, you may be surprised that your partner does not enjoy your choices the way you expected he/she would, which might make you frustrated, and change the mood of the whole journey. So make sure your plan attracts your partner as much as it attracts you.
For the romantic trip, pack the clothes that makes you look attractive the most, such as outfits, underwear and evening dresses, make sure to pack swimwear as well. Also bring sunscreen and mosquito repellent, because sunburn and insect bites will stop you from achieving the desired romantic atmosphere.
Include “a quiet time together” in your plan
Do not fill all your time with activities during the romantic trip, without leaving a good time to rest. The aim of the trip is to enjoy the company of each other. Take advantage of the quiet moments such as time at the hotel, overnight, or during breakfast, it is as important as the time you spend out doing activities.
No Devices allowed
While being on a romantic trip, take a break from texting, phone calls, and answering emails. When you take photos, wait until you go home and post them on social media. You’ve taken this trip together to get some time away from everything else, so take advantage of this opportunity to stay away from electronics and live the moment.
Avoid crowded places
Some of the most famous places in the world are not really as romantic as they appear in pictures and movies. As many tourists head to the same places, you will have to wait in a long line to enter a famous museum, or visit a known monument. And although these places are really worth visiting, they are not suitable for couples looking for a romantic time together, away from the long waiting and high entrance fees. If you want a more personal and private experience with your partner, look for less known museums and attractions, or plan a visit in a quiet season such as school and university times.
Put a surprise gift in your partner’s suitcase.
