WATCH OUT FOR HANGER (HUNGER + ANGER) AND EXHAUSTION
You are going to come across many situations on your travels that are going to make you extremely frustrated and tired. An activity packed day, catching multiple flights, jetlag, the change in weather and the lack of sleep can all be exhausting! Any / all of these may result in arguments and unnecessary fights. You might laugh now, but as someone who gets super grumpy when they haven’t eaten for a while, trust me when I say, arguments caused by hunger are scary! Don’t try to fit all your sight-seeing into one day – get enough sleep, and load up on food. Instead of snapping at each other, try and fit in activities that will help you calm down and relax. A canal cruise or a couple's massage at a spa will help you to relax and reconnect. Additionally, it would be good to carry enough snacks (trail mixes, protein bars, and fruits) so that you can be prepared when hanger strikes. Don’t let the little things get in the way of a great vacation together!
