Is couple trip a concept that you think just won’t work for you? You think that it will spiral into a guilt trip even before you leave and you end up having a family holiday because you think that the only holiday you will ever need are holidays with the children. However, going away on a trip where you can be husband and wife, and not anyone’s parents, for a few days can do you good. Here are five reasons to convince you that it’s actually a good thing for parents to vacation without kids:
Going on a vacation without kids means you have dedicated time for each other that provide lots of opportunities for relationship growth. Since daily life is already overwhelming that you forget to put your husband/wife at the top of your list, vacation is the right moment to just focus on both of you and to keep the sparks alive.
Traveling without children allows parents to be individuals, and to take care of themselves as individuals too. Let’s think about this: what could be better than a time for mommy to have some quiet and peaceful moments with a good book while daddy goes for a fishing trip? That time away, even as couple, is good for parents. You will return a happier, more engaged person and parent.
Parenting is a constant monitoring of kids’ needs and wants, until you can no longer maintain your own sanity. Going on a vacation without them is hard with all the guilty feeling that may arise from leaving them behind, not being able to physically be there and take care of them for a moment, but you will come home with heightened appreciation for them, and so will they.
When you separate yourself from your children, you give them a chance to be independent. Kids need to feel independent and confident in their own abilities without needing constant affirmation from parents.
When you’re on a vacation with your spouse, chances are you’re going to leave your children with a close family you trust. This will allow for a precious bonding time between your children and other important people in your life.
Are these reasons to leave your kids for vacation convincing enough? We certainly think that every parent needs some time off, to enjoy the holiday moment with each other and come back home refreshed and ready to take on the parenthood thing all over again.

A surefire way to escape traffic and mass of people blocking the roads holding their own parties. This is also a great chance for you to explore the hidden corners of London and really get the feel of the city. If you're the introvert kind, taking the public transportation will also allow you to observe all the fun from afar without having to take part!
There are plenty of venues - both small and large - across London that offer a public viewing of the Royal Wedding as well as their own activities inspired by or alluding to the Royal Wedding. If you feel like having some fun, why not join them? Check out the local listings or simply ask around to find the perfect venue!
The British public might not have got a day off for the wedding but pub fans certainly have something to thank Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for! The celebration period over the Royal Wedding weekend allows London pubs to open longer well until 1 A.M. the night after the wedding. Refresh yourself with a pint or two!
From museums, festivals and concerts, there are different going-ons in London over the Royal Wedding weekend too, so if you don't feel like taking part in the whole Royal Wedding madness, then it's time to plunge into another London trademark: the arts! Consult your guide on which event is most suitable to your heart's content!
Not into crowds or festivities and want to feel like a royal yourself? Then just stay in at one of the hotels in London with its own special Royal Wedding offers. We recommend the following: One Aldwych, Zetter Townhouse and Hotel Cafe Royal. We say you deserve your own royal treatment too!
