#2 Travelling with family, set a date with your spouse

How about a day just for the two of you? A romantic dinner by the beach? A walk on the park? You do not have to be on a separate hotel with your children to do this. Sometimes a half day or a meal with your spouse is already enough.  Do not feel guilty when you have to send your kids early to their bed. Remember that a happy wife is a happy life.

#4 Book activities ahead of time

It is still best to plan ahead.  This is especially true for famous sites and tourist destinations.  Check the availability of guides, accommodations and logistics.  You do not want a messy holiday just because you did not book well in advance.

#8 Be gadget/internet free 

Due to the availability of Internet, it is very easy to do something online. Make an effort to stop yourself from accessing your apps and music. Instead, observe people, listen to the noise the environment gives and have real conversations with the people you are with. And yes, you can let camera be the only gadget around.

#9 Seize every moment

There would be times that even your camera won’t be able to capture the moment you are in.  So just stay there and embrace everything you see for it may not happen again.

#10 Write a journal at the end of the day

Ooooops, do not imagine this to be a summary of how your day went.  It could just be a sentence of how you felt, a new foreign expression you learned, a phrase that caught your attention, or even a word that would best describe your day.
