Make compromises and communicate
This is an important one to allow any holiday to flow, especially if you are away for any lengthy period. The art of compromise is always important in a relationship, but when you are away from your home comforts, it is especially crucial. As two separate individuals, there is likely to be a difference in what you both want to do and get out of the trip. Therefore, good communication is also very important. If you don’t like something, tell your partner right away. After a 20-kilometre hike, you will be tired and hungry, so it will be hard to stay friendly. In the end, it will teach you mutual patience and tolerance.
Allow yourself some time alone
Just because you and your partner are travelling together, it doesn’t mean you have to be joined at the hip throughout your time away. It is inevitable that one of you will want some time away from the other, whether that is for an early night or just some peace and quiet to relax in a different environment. Embrace this rather than let it worry you. You can be apart while on holiday. It gives you both a chance to do something you want to do, and that is an important way of maintaining the status quo throughout your period away.
