Baecation is what your relationship needs


Amanda Khoza, a life coach in Joburg, says: “It’s easy for couples to lose the spark. They often get to a routine and start taking each other for granted.” Most relationship experts suggests that you take time off and go on holiday with your loved one to catch up and strengthen your connection.”

Relationship coach Tumi Moloi says seeing someone when they’re out of their comfort zone often shows you their true colours. “Uninterrupted time together is a great way to refocus on each other emotionally and physically.”

We’ve seen celebs do just that; they fill social media with picturesque snaps and snippets of their romantic getaways. More than a trend, there are benefits to travelling with your beloved. Recharging your batteries as a couple, experiencing new things together and uninterrupted bonding are just some.

“Remember that even during times of happiness and vacation, disagreements can arise,” says Moloi, suggesting that taking it easy and letting things go is another way to release the steam. “No one is perfect and clinging to everything your partner does that bothers you will only end up in a fight.”

Mofokeng agrees: “Issues that may arise during the trip should be addressed immediately to avoid making things awkward between the two of you. But don’t bring up old resentments; this is the time to enjoy yourselves outside of your usual space. Bringing up those issues can make or break the relationship. To avoid unnecessary conflict do not address issues while on vacation.”
