Travelling with a significant other is so much more than a destination, it is a journey! It's a big step and one that can push your relationship in one of two directions. You inevitably learn a lot about the person you're dating and it teaches them a lot about you in return.
Deciding where to go on said trip can be tough, there are a lot of factors that need to be considered.
I recently took a weekend trip to Tofino and it became quickly apparent to me that going to Tofino is possibly the best thing you can do for a relationship, especially one in it's early stages.
Why Tofino you ask? It has all the qualifications needed to create the perfect weekend getaway to strengthen the bond with the person you're dating.
First of all, getting to Tofino includes a (almost) two-hour ferry ride, followed by an absolutely stunning three-hour car ride. Let me tell ya, you learn a lot about a person when you spend three hours in the car with them. You learn habits, idiosyncrasies, bladder size, and it gives you time to create genuine conversation thus deepening your bond.
Once in Tofino, there is never a dull moment. I tend to think that learning something new with a significant other is not only fun, but also strengthening to a relationship. It encourages supportiveness and allows for healthy vulnerability. Tofino is packed with things you've probably never tried before. You can rent wet suits and surfboards (or bodyboards) and even get a lesson together. This creates memories, and you leave having learned something new.
The element of adventure that exists in Tofino is unparalleled and is an awesome way to spend time with someone you care about. There are amazing trails that lead to stunning views and even hidden beaches for you to have a cute make out session on!
Winding down in Tofino is just as easy, which of course, is integral to a good weekend getaway with the babe. I would suggest getting a room that over looks the ocean. Long Beach Lodge is just one hotel that has fantastic views for great prices. There is not much that compares to enjoying a bottle of red while watching the waves in the evening. Put the new Banks album on and you two are ready for a romantic evening in.
We all know that deciding to go away with someone can be nerve-wracking at the beginning but it's also an important part of getting to know each other. It's a way to connect with one another on a higher level than you would at home. So the next time you're looking to plan a weekend getaway with that cute someone, Tofino is absolutely the place to go.
