Life is getting
tougher by the day, and we at BordersBlog couldn’t help but acknowledge it.
There are more work responsibilities to meet, more goals to achieve and more
social media posts to like. But amidst all these, a couple often starts feeling
uncomfortable. Distances start growing larger to a point where you are simply
longtime roommates. We keep the spark alive in our relationship by traveling together
to new places. Here are some of our most important tips to enjoy the getaway.
You only have
the weekend to yourself, so keep all the distractions at bay. It would be best
if you don’t talk about work, stop picking phones (unless, of course, they are
very important), stop replying to emails and stop skimming through your social
media feeds. When we are together, we always ensure that we have a minimal
number of distractions. We like to talk, share our experiences and just have a
good time together while creating posts for BordersBlog. It is refreshing to
have some time alone in the world with your partner and feel like kids again.
Don’t plan to go
too far away
prefer to go to destinations that may be too far away from the city they live
in. You often have to dedicate the majority of your time traveling which
doesn’t make sense. Moreover, it’s just a two-day weekend. Even if you manage
to stretch it to three days, you don’t want to come back home, hoping to sleep
for 12 hours straight. Keep your journey as short as possible so that you spend
more time with each other, just going around and having fun. We once went to a
nearby farm that was just a 2 hours’ drive away from our home. We had a great
time running behind goats on the grazing lands and spent two hours just
chatting, sitting on bundles of hay. Of course, we brainstormed tons of new
ideas for BordersBlog too.
Don’t forget to
It is not just
going ticking a box on your to-do list. You go to a place together to enjoy
each other’s company and to fall in love all over again. This makes it important
to have fun with each other. Some couples make an itinerary that includes
visiting one restaurant, drinking beer at a craft beer shop, attending a small
local event- that’s it. We don’t do that. We always leave some space for
exploring and sometimes roam around the streets with ice cream cones in our
hands, just trying to live life and living each moment to the fullest.
Talk to each
You would be
surprised to find that most couples don’t have time to have a heart-to-heart
chat with each other these days. Their responsibilities, jobs, etc. take so
much of their time that it becomes impossible to share your fears, joys and
desires with the one you love. Don’t let this space come in between you two.
Even if you are going to a local fair, leaving the kids with their grandmother,
just make sure you talk and speak to each other directly from the heart.
