Choice of hotel
Maybe you thought booking a room at the Motel 9 next to the correctional facility was a good way to save a few dollars. After all, it did get three-stars on TripAdvisor! Your partner’s idea of a romantic getaway, however, might not have involved a panoramic view of "the yard."
How to solve it: Pick the hotel TOGETHER. Like, even if one of you says, “I don’t care,” there is a 10,000% chance you will if the hotel sucks.
Where to eat
At home, you’ve no doubt slipped into that joyful rut of going to the same P.F. Chang's every week where Ted the waiter already knows you'll be splitting the Dan Dan Noodles. Once you’re away, though, there are all kinds of frustrating new options and food decisions to disagree about, especially if you’re in a foreign country.
How to avoid it: Peruse some websites with local restaurant info (ummm, perhaps the tab above that reads “CITIES?" Just a thought.) before you take off, and plan out your most important meals ahead of time.
