Your honeymoon is your first adventure together as a married couple. You want everything from start to finish perfect; seeped with enough romance to last a lifetime. Chances are it will be right up until it’s not.
Face it: Perfection is for scripted romance movies. You and your honey are humans and that means it’s pretty likely a few snafus will arise no matter how hard you try to avoid them. It’s how you handle those little mishaps that determines whether you’ll look back on your honeymoon with stars in your eyes or a preference to forgot the whole thing.
Here are some honeymoon travel tips “they” probably haven’t told you about that can help you avoid (or handle) some of the most common mishaps:
If your honeymoon is taking place in a sunny destination, chances are swimming is on the agenda. That also means you and your sweetie are going to be soggy messes, or at least your bathing suits will be. To avoid the awkwardness that goes with trying to get into suits that just haven’t dried out, be sure to bring at least two. That way one can always be hung out to dry thoroughly while you enjoy the sun and surf in the other.
Sunburns and Dehydration
Noting can sideline romance quite as quickly as a burn or a case of dehydration. Be sure to wear lots of sunscreen (and reapply it frequently). Also, limit time in direct sunlight and consider covering up a bit when you can. Drink plenty of fluids to avoid the blah feeling and fatigue that go along with dehydration. When it comes to sunburns and dehydration, an ounce of prevention is really worth a pound of cure. Plus, you’ll look a whole lot sexier for those romantic nights if you’re not burned from head to toe!
It’s uncomfortable and no one likes to talk about it, but the truth is vacations and digestive issues do seem to go hand-in-hand. Your honeymoon isn’t likely to be an exception to that rule. After all, you’ll probably indulge on some rather rich foods and drinks. Add to that you’re going to be far from the comfort of your own loo and the privacy you’re accustomed to.
So, how can you avoid those uncomfortable, frequent trips to the loo? Exercise a little common sense and do your body and your honey a favor by trying to eat healthy, balanced meals most of the time. Drink lots of water and be sure not to overindulge on new cuisine or overly rich dishes until you’re sure your body will react kindly. All that isn’t to say you shouldn’t have fun or try new things, just take it slow. It’s also a good idea to bring along some digestive aids … just in case.
