“Traveling in the company of those we love is home in motion.—Leigh Hunt

epic vacation

Vacations are getting ready to happen again, especially after last year when many vacations were put on hold.

With the delay in getting away, both of you may have expectations when you do travel again. There are many different expectations from relaxing on the beach to sex and everything in between.

It’s normal to go into this time together thinking about things like what type of adventure you’re going to go on and what amazing places you could eat at. In other words, thoughts of an epic vacation can quickly fill your head. 

The challenge comes when those expectations aren’t met and the vacation doesn’t go as planned. Although you may want an epic vacation do you both have the same idea of what that is?

It’s because of this, that things can go sideways while you’re on your epic vacation. 

You want to experience an epic vacation and yet there are things that you don’t address like:

  • What is your sexual intimacy going to look like on vacation
  • How do you balance adventure and relaxation
  • How do you find things that you both enjoy
  • Finding the balance between planning and spontaneity
  • Deciding how you are going to handle work/our phones or other electronics
  • Different ways of dealing with stress

And then it becomes easy for the vacation to go from epic to excruciating very quickly.

But what if you could change that cycle and address things ahead of time? 

What if you had a plan before you left on how the two of you were going to handle different aspects of your vacation? Something that you could come back to daily or revisit when things start to go awry.

It’s possible and yet here’s the thing, you can’t leave it to chance or just hope for the best. You have to spend a little bit of time setting yourselves up for success before you leave.

In the end it’s not always the place you go that creates the epic vacation but how the two of you experience the time you have together.
