Ah, the Glorious Romantic Getaway!
Between honeymoons and Hollywood we are SO ready to plan and take the fabled couples’ vacation. We expect to gaze lovingly at each other over a beach sunset and have beautiful multi-course dinners paired with the perfect vintage wine — the ultimate in romantic travel.
So why do we sometimes end up fighting over who ate the last chocolate in the mini-fridge?
It’s simple, really: travel pushes us outside our comfort zone. And when we’re out there — where it’s unfamiliar, where we don’t have complete control — we can get touchy and defensive.
This is a totally normal response and fortunately there are ways to help us keep our cool. Looking at the nine steps below, and being mindful of your differences but choosing to focus on your rapport, you have a much better chance of keeping the “romance” in your upcoming romantic travel holiday.
