5 Extremely Simple Tips for Traveling as a Couple

Sometimes, it is such a challenge to travel with your significant other. Still, it is possible, and it brings so much joy and happiness when done right. Undoubtedly, traveling as a couple is an ultimate test of your relationship. What is more, it could even lead to a split up. However, did you know that we are the ones that let our trips be stressful? That is tight. Delayed or missed flights, wrong rooms booked at hotels and other unexpected stuff will always be the parts of any trip. Your reaction to all the mentioned is what defines whether you will have the time of your life or the worst vacation ever. We will do our best to help you have the best trip as a couple and do at least try not to kill each other in the middle of it. Let us start. Thank you for these tips to Russian dating site.

1. Have a Long Time about Your General Expectations

The most frequent reason for spoiled traveling is her “Let’s Instagram everything we see here” and his “Let’s leave our phones at home”. To avoid it, have a good talk about where and why you want to go a month before departure. Sit down, listen to your partner’s take on her/his ideas for the trip. Then compare notes and compromise.

2. Speak on the Budget in Advance

This is probably one of the most essential things that you do before leaving. What really works for the most of couples nowsdays is going Dutch as they say. You just literally split the costs fifty-fifty, right down the middle. Still, try not to get over-focused on the money issue. You don’t have to be counting evrery single penny because you may get obsessive and cause a little bit of bad blood. Keeping it 100% totally even does no good for any couple. So stay human. Try not to become the Scrooge McDuch. Your date picked you for a trip, not the crazy duck of Disney.

3. Eat Before You Get “Hangry”

Walking for hours, trying to record every second, sight, an impression of your trip in your brain, the food is the last thing you care. Then you wonder why you get so disrespectful and snappy. Your date drives you mad and you cannot control yourself. Remember that from time to time it is the stomach talking, not the real you. That is why avoid it. Get snacks. Stock up. Have serious conversations during or right after meals. At the breakfast make sure yout tummies will be full during the whole day whether you will have an all-day-long road trip or a flight.

4. Value Personal Space and Time

Travel cna foster immense personal growth, especially solo travel. Be ready that traveling as a couple you may not have your wings spread and that real diving into your destination and diving a little deeper into yourself. If you want a great trip, just accept that both. Like you are two different people. You might have different desires when it comes to what to do at the destination and each of us is ready to sacrifice some time to do that. During the short solo trips, use them to embrace your individuality, explore an adventure, create moments with yourself and then renuite and obviously share all your adventures, experiences with your date. In the end, it just brings you closer as you demonstrate an essential value, respect towards each other.

5. Have a Plan, But Never Overplan

Overplanning, you feel the stress like you need to be doing something or you need to be somewhere at a certain time. It removes you from the moment. That is the worst thing to happen on a cool vacation. In most cases, you go somewhere to relax from the daily routine and fill yourself with the energy. It is impossible to enjoy and relax when you have a strict plan set and you’re worried about it all the time. We recommend you have a loose general plan and one no-plans day. Depending on the way you both feel in the morning, you can either spend the whole day in the bed or go for some crazy adventures, spend the whole day with the locals and clear mind.

7 Cool Things to Do with Your Girlfriend in Singapore

Someone says that Singapore is a technology miracle, another one claims that it is the front window of Asia because it is an energetic and inspiring place, which has managed to become one of the best. Singapore is many-faced and magnificent like Ukrainian girls. You can choose many different epithets for the island-city-state of Singapore, but all of them will surely be vivid and not ordinary. Singapore remains one of the greenest cities in the world, having so many astounding futuristic buildings and attracting a big number of people from all over the world. So, what can you do with your girlfriend in Singapore?

1. Look to the Future

The future of science fiction movies will come in Singapore very soon when the first spaceplanes start landing in the airport Changi, and robots say, “Next in line, please!” You should surely look at the steel baobabs of the Gardens by the Bay. In the evening, the lights are turned on, and the magic garden begins to shimmer with colored lights, just like in the Avatar. At an altitude of 22 meters, supertrees are connected by the sky bridge, from which the domes of futuristic greenhouses are visible.

2. Relax on the Beach

When the brain melts because of the heat, you can escape from the stone jungle to the beaches of the tropical island of Sentosa. You can visit each of them during the day because a free tram runs along the coast. If both of you prefer a relaxing holiday in the hammocks under the palm trees, go to Tanjong beach, and if you want to suf and play volleyball, go to the beach of Silos. You can also visit the mangrove thickets of the island of Pulau Ubin. In this Singaporean village, you can ride a bicycle through rubber groves, eat grilled shrimps and look out for rare birds from wooden bridges.

3. Update your Wardrobe

In Singapore, you can find ten boutiques per square meter because local people like brand-name things. Good dressers with packages of Chanel and Louis VUitton go from one showcase to another. If you do not have enough money to buy a Prada handbag, go to Bugis Street, and you will buy the same but from Chinese masters. tripadvisor.jp

4. Shake the Paw of the Lemur

The Singapore Zoo is one fo the most advanced in the world. More than 300 species of animals walk freely through the rainforest. Here, you can have breakfast with organutans, feed the giraffe or dwarf hippo during lunch, and watch the dinner of predators in the evening. Both of you will be excited like kids.

5. Take a Photo on the Edge of the Abyss

Only a lazy person did not see the pictures of the hotel Marina Bay Sands on the Internet. Three 200-meter towers, crowned with a gondola, perfectly fit into the landscape of Singapore’s space harbor. Many people go here to take a photo in the famous swimming pool on the roof, here the water seems to pour over the sides to the abyss. What a stunning view of the bay you will be able to enjoy there!

6. Look at Singapore from a Height

To see whole banana-lemon Singapore at your feet, don’t miss a chance to ride the Ferris Wheel. From the height of a 55-storey building, you will be able to distinguish even the Indonesian islands on the horizon. In the evening, the city lights up with millions of light bulbs, and you feel like superheros on top of the world. If you have a special evening, you can book a separate booth with champagne and dinner for two.

7. Try “Star” Noodles on the Street

Chinese rice with slices of duck is friend in soy sauce on every corner of Chinatown, but you need to stand a kilometer line to try noodles with chicken from the street chef Chan Hong Menga, his street tent has been awarded a Michelin star. If you are fond of spicy chili, go to the Indian city block.

Fun with Kids in Perth – (Day 3): The Core Cider House (Fruit Picking), New Moon Dim Sum Restaurant, Fremantle Markets, Cicerello and Kings Park

Hello Perth! It is always good to self drive in Australia as car hire is affordable. The last thing you want to try is taking their taxi. In fact, we rarely come across any Singaporean visitors not self driving when visiting Australia.

Day 3

We fondly remembered the sumptuous dim sum breakfast we had the day before and on our final day, we drove out to Northbridge again to try a new Chinese Dim Sum Restaurant but not before we had a mini-tour of Chinatown in our car.

We love Perth. So much so that we don’t think we will get bored going back again.
