Taking a holiday together is an excellent way for couples to see the world and strengthen their relationship at the same time. There are many reasons why holidays are so good for relationships and why they can deepen the bond between you and your partner.
If you’re a couple who loves to travel, going on an adventure together can deepen your trust in each other. During holidays chances are that you will see your partner at their worst but also at their best, finding out new traits and quirks that you didn’t know were there.
Here are three vacation types you’ll want to include on your bucket list.
Cycling tours combine thrills and adventure with visiting new places. A cycling holiday is perfect for active couples who share a passion for cycling or anyone who wants to experience a new place from an alternative perspective. There are many different types of cycling tours suitable for different levels of fitness and cycling ability but one thing they all have in common is that they allow you to fully immerse yourself in a destination and its culture. The shared experience of exploring an unfamiliar place by bicycle will strengthen your bond and can be very romantic as you pedal through stunning destinations such as Sardinia or the Dalmatian coast.
Theme Park Holiday
If you and your partner share a passion for roller coasters or you’re both big fans of Disney, Harry Potter or Lego then a theme park holiday could be perfect for your next vacation together. There are even theme parks dedicated to slightly more obscure interests like the award-winning Pu du Fou theme park in France for history lovers. Rather than take a day trip and rush around the rides, a short break or longer vacation at a theme park gives you time to soak up the atmosphere of the park, catch the entertainment like shows and parades, enjoy any special events and make sure you get to see and do everything you want to during your visit.
A Road Trip
Taking a road trip together is ideal for couples who want to explore destinations off the beaten track and be in charge of their own schedule. If you love the idea of being totally spontaneous and stopping off wherever and whenever for however long you like, then a couples’ road trip might be perfect for you. Road trips can last anywhere from a couple of days to several weeks, depending on how long you want to travel, your destination/s and your budget. There are some world-famous road trips, like Route 66 or the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia. Or you might want to devise your own itinerary from scratch, prioritizing places you both want to see along the way.
This type of holiday can be quite intense as you’ll spend a considerable amount of time in the car with your partner so prepare for this by coming up with some basic ground rules (for example, “No criticizing the other person’s driving!”) and line up some playlists and games to make your time on the road together more interesting.
