Love has forever been in the air, and there’s nothing better than surprising your spouse with a romantic vacation out of the blue especially if you’re searching for the lost spice in your relationship. The beauty about relationships is that if there’s romance in the heart, the place doesn’t really matter. A simple beach getaway or a romantic rooftop dinner far from the city should do all the magic. This definitely solves the budget problem if there’s any. However, there are quite a few bloopers that may ruin your getaway by killing the romance. Here’s few things to avoid if you want to keep the romance up and build the spice in your lovey-dovey relationship, when on a romantic holiday.
Don't Kill the Surprise!
Don't spoil it beforehand! If you're longing for a surprise let it come from your significant half on its own. Don’t drop hints. Don’t ask for it directly. Don’t force the other to surprise you let surprises be surprises. On the contrary, don’t get too impatient and eager to see the reaction of your partner by speeding to get there. Remember, 'Haste makes waste.'

Don’t Stick to A Tight Budget
We know you don’t want this single getaway to get you bankrupt. But neither would your partner want that for you. Do not let the fear of spending too much get in the way of the fun and romance. It’s ok to spend a little more and it’s ok to treat the other for a change. It’s not cool or necessary to Dutch every time.
Don’t Get into Unnecessary Fights
Wrap the fights up and flip them out of that window. Fight are one of the chief factors that kill the romance in a relationship. You don’t want to ruin this holiday or your mood with unnecessary quarrels. Lighten up!
Don’t Let The ‘Hungry’ Become ‘Hangry’
Shoddy behavior is not acceptable. In the bargain of your big surprise getaway or the joy of the romantic moments you’re looking forward to, do not forget that your partner may be hungry. If you’ve been driving too long or been too busy arranging the line of surprises for your significant half, do not assume that the surprises will please them and the hunger may just disappear.
Don’t Expect Your Spouse to Cook Just Cause Your Room Has a Kitchen

Remember that your spouse is here to relax and have a good time as well. May back home s/he cooks for you, but not on the vacation. You should in fact go in for candle light dinner or check a famous restaurant in the area and keep the homemade food for home.
Don’t Stick to Each Other Too Much
We understand you want to make the most of this getaway, but don’t let the romance get to your partner. Spending every minute together might just get suffocating. Give your partner some lone time and enjoy some lone time yourself too. When you’ll meet after this short distance, you’ll will love the together time even more.
Keep That Phone Away

Facebook, Watsapp, Hike, and the many apps and games you’re addicted to, can wait. And those business calls can be ignored for a day or two. The best way to keep it romantic is to start by paying attention to each other. Everything else can be put on standby.
This Isn’t a Business Trip
