Going away with your significant other can be one of the nicest ways to reconnect, reset, and take a little time off. But, unfortunately, taking a couples tripcan also be really stressful. If it’s your first trip together, it can come with stress about how the trip is going to go. And even if you’ve already been on a bunch of trips together, planning a trip can feel like a second job. So how can you plan a couples trip quickly and easily?
I’ll confess, “quickly and easily” isn’t something that comes naturally to me. I’m a planner, through and through. When my boyfriend and I go somewhere new, I’ll spend hours searching Airbnb for a great spot. But while that might sound like a nightmare to some people, I love looking at properties Airbnb, so it’s not stressful. It actually feels like a treasure hunt. (Also I’m a total voyeur and I love looking in people’s windows, digitally and with consent, of course.)
So, yeah, I’m not a natural when it comes to quick and easy. But I did just spontaneously go to France this February, with no planning. And I’m practicing spontaneity more these days. So I figured one way to get better at feeling more comfortable doing big things without a lot of planning is by researching how to plan a couples trip quickly. Here are seven tips to make your next couples trip quick and easy to plan.
