So you’ve booked a trip with your partner. It might be your first trip or your fifteenth- but it doesn’t matter what stage of your relationship you’re in, because our tips for things to do when travelling with your partner will ensure you have an amazing time together!
Go on your own pub crawl
When we were in Prague for Craig’s birthday we decided to go on our own mini pub crawl. We each took turns choosing a different pub, and the other had to agree to the pub the other chose.
As a result I ended up drinking in many pubs I usually wouldn’t [Craig loves a heavy metal/rock pub] and it was a great way to experience the many different pubs all around Prague!
Take turns choosing activities
We have a rule that every time we travel togethe, we both pick 1-3 things we really want to do, and the other just has to suck it up and do said activity.
As a result I’ve tried a few things I wouldn’t usually do- for example we’ve played UV mini golf in Budapest which is something I never thought I’d do, and Craig gets dragged along on my birdwatching adventures around Scotland.
The benefits of this is we both get to do the things we want but we also get to try things we usually wouldn’t. It’s a great way to discover something new, and hey- you might discover a new passion.
Refuse to use any public transport for a day
This works really well if you’re staying in a city. Rather than catching a bus or train to some of the local attractions, why not walk there instead?
We have discovered some really cool bars, restaurants, shops and monuments just by choosing to walk verses taking a bus. It’s also great exercise, and you’ll see more of the local side of a city this way.
