For those of you who are unsure about the awesomeness of Twitter, let me show you how amazing it can be. When I need advice, tips, or information, I send out a tweet. Most of the time my “tweeps” come to my rescue!
So, when I started thinking about our upcoming vacation and the fact that we are “vacation novices,” I thought I’d send out a few queries to my Twitter friends for advice. The response was kind of overwhelming! Thank you to everyone who chimed in; I really appreciate it, and I think you all had some great advice.
What advice would you give to a couple about to take their first vacation or honeymoon together?
Ladies: what are the essentials you would pack for a tropical vacation with your significant other?
***Sorry @alongfarview, I wanted to make sure that everyone knew you caught your typo***
Very shortly after I posed that question, I received the most popular piece of advice from my buddy Em:
Oh, don’t you just love it???
I definitely plan on splurging a bit on food and drink…YUM!
The topic of couples massages created an entirely new conversation, but we’ll leave that out of the timeline. Haha!
Seriously @LicoriceOlives – what a clever tip! I usually pack one outfit and pajamas on my carry-on bag just in case this happens! But I really like this idea; what if you were stuck for a few days without a bag?
Ah, the lingerie debate. Another issue that I could ponder for a while. Is it necessary to go out and buy some pretties to bring with, or will it just sit in the suitcase the entire week? I think it probably depends on the person. Hmmm.
Oh @lakitu41, you opened a can of worms here with that one. It’s a smart piece of advice, but I also can see how it could be complicated.
Very brilliant @thatsostelle! On my packing list: a deck of cards! For sure. We also learned on a previous trip that having a corkscrew is very useful, because buying one WITH a bottle of wine or having to ask the front desk to help you out is really annoying.
So, there we have it! I wanted to say “thank you” once again for ALL of the amazing advice that everyone tweeted to me. I hope it helps on our trip, and perhaps for any of you out there thinking about embarking on one soon!
Do you agree with any of the advice, or have some to add?
