TIPS FOR A ROMANTIC OUTDOOR ADVENTURE
We’ve all heard the cornball adage that the couple that plays together, stays together. We think it is absolutely true; sharing adventures with your significant other is one of the best parts of a relationship. But taking the love of your life on an outdoor adventure can also be stressful, and end badly if you aren’t prepared. So we’ve gathered a few tips that can take the stress out of a couples weekend of hiking, backpacking, or camping.
1. START WITH SMALLER ADVENTURES
If your significant other isn’t as experienced or outdoorsy as you are, start small. If you want to plan an epic backpacking trip, start with day hikes and a few shorter backpacking weekends before working up to the big trip. Your first adventures need to be fun and not overwhelming so as to nurture a love of the outdoors that will last a lifetime.
