You and bae are all set up and excited for your baecation. You have agreed on your budget and your travel plan, know your destination, worked on your packing list and you are now wondering what to do on your trip? You need to know beforehand the activities you both want to undertake and also leave room for spontaneous activities but having an itinerary is a must.
See below some activities we have picked out for you and your significant other.
Baecation is a time to tryout new things and to have adventures with bae. Enjoy that! Be prepared to look silly trying new things. Laugh about it and allow yourself to truly enjoy the experience. Try bungee jumping, skydiving, ziplining, paragliding, and anything your destination has to provide.
Get wonderfully lost
You do not have to have it all together on your trip. Make things flexible and be spontaneous. Get lost in the city, on an island, anything. Lose the map and explore the city.
Hit the beach
If you chose a destination with a beach, then by all means put on your swimsuits and hit the beach. Tryout all the activities the beach has to offer.
Go hiking/ camping
If you chose a destination that offers a great place to hike and also camp out, then why not give it a shot. Go on a mountain hike. Camp out in the beach or at the seashore. With bae by your side, you won’t be afraid of any monsters.
Do some yoga in open air
Stretch out, control your breathing and strengthen your body and mind through yoga/ meditation. Try out new poses together. Laugh at each other when you fall and just stay healthy.
Go for an early morning jog or run
Enjoy the sunrise, talk without pressure and stay healthy by going for a run or a jog.
Dress fancy and go on a date
Take time out and really dress up for a date night. Wear fancy clothes, heels, makeup and take yourselves to fancy restaurant or hit a cool bar.
Try local delicacies
You cannot visit a country without finding out what the locals eat, how they eat it and where to find the best delicacies. Get adventurous and go all the way.
This would not be much fun for boo but girl, this would be your territory. Shop for yourself and boo, get some souvenirs for family and friends.
Go wine tasting
If the country offers this, then by all means you should include it in your itinerary.
Enjoy some “me” time
Baecations are not always a fairytale. There might be little arguments and disagreements. There might also be that moment when you or bae will need your space at least for a while. Use this opportunity to visit places you wanted to see, go for a meal, explore the beach, shop or do something cool.
Have a relaxing day at the spa
Nothing spells bonding than two people in love indulging in a couple’s massage. This relaxes you while it provides you two time to just enjoy the company of each other with very few words.
Go on strolls and watch the sunset/ sunrise
Nothing says romance than holding hands with your significant other while walking the shows of a turquoise blue sea with sun rising or setting. This is simply picturesque!
When you get tired of all the activities and the outings, you can take a day out and just stay in bed. Indulge in each other, talk about your feelings, plan the future, etc. Just stay indoors and order room service.
Pack some adult games
Pick up some adult games for the days and nights you two decide to stay in.
Go Dancing or take a dance lesson
If you visit a country or city that loves dancing and take dancing seriously, use the opportunity to learn some dance moves and then go dancing to show off your moves.
Make sure to capture all your moments together or apart. Share on Instagram with hashtag #baecation, print them out or keep them in your couple album.
Take the baecation up a notch
If you still have time and can easily explore the country’s neighbouring countries and cities, do it! Travel for so many hours to see the perfect beach, monument, mountains etc. Just get on a bus, a car, or a train and go see it with bae. Time flies by and if this opportunity has presented itself, take it!
PS: You and bae must stay off your phones and enjoy your time together.
