If you and your significant other are planning a trip full of adventure, there’s definitely nothing that’s more memorable or exotic than to take a trip overseas. Whether it’s to the Alps during the Christmas season or to South Africa during their summertime, the sites, culture and outdoor activities are all things that will truly add to all of the love that the two of you already share.
And so, in order to make sure that your vacation together is one that is full of fun, we wanted to offer you five great planning tips for your overseas adventure. Check these out below:
Search for tourists attractions for couples. Any time that you’re planning to take an international trip, it’s important to do a little bit of research on the destination—even before you leave your house. Well, thanks to the internet, that’s relatively easy to do. Simply go to your favorite search engine and put “adventurous things to do” along with the country that you’re preparing to visit and you’ll immediately see links that will give you all kinds of great information. What’s even better is that if you’re going somewhere as a couple, by adding “romantic things to do” to the search, you’ll find activities and sites that are especially for you and your significant other.
Learn some key phrases. If you’re not someone who knows much about other languages, that’s OK. English is a language that is spoken all around the world. But, if you want to be able to make an immediate connection with the natives of where you are headed, try and learn some key words and phrases like “hello”, “please” and “thank you” along with “Where is the bathroom?” and “Do you speak English?” if you’re really in a bind.
Don’t rent a car. Unless you’re planning to go to a place where there’s plenty of rough terrain, our recommendation is to not rent a car. Instead, look into if there are bicycles that you can rent and also, don’t forget to take some hiking boots so that you can do a lot of walking through nature too. In fact, for this reason, remember to take some comfortable clothes and a rain jacket as well—just in case.
Choose a romantic hotel. Even if you planning on “roughing it out” by going camping or staying in a rustic cabin for the majority of the time, towards the end of the trip, try and book a reservation at a romantic hotel. It’s a special way to get some rest, relaxation and romance in before heading back home.
Don’t forget your camera. Say that your adventure travel plans consists of stopping by the Foxfire Mountain Adventures before going to another country. You definitely don’t want to experience all of the excitement that comes with doing things like zip-lining and swinging on bridges without having your camera, or better yet a video camera. So, don’t forget to bring one along. That way, you can remember your amazing adventure with your beloved, long after it is over!
