Nothing quite beats having quality family time. Life can get so busy, and family members may start to grow apart from one another, resulting in one feeling estranged from the other.
However, this only presents an opportunity for you to plan a family bonding session to reignite the relationship with your loved ones once more! So, if you’ve let the bond between you and your family skip; it’s time to embark on a private yacht rental for ample time to spend together reconnecting.
Without further ado, here are a few things you can prepare ahead to ensure the time is spent well and caters towards family bonding.
Plan your itinerary accordingly
It’s important that the whole family’s interests are catered to. Spending too much time on one activity that only one of you loves and the others are not too fond of, is not a good idea for bonding.
Sit around the table before disembarking, and discuss the interests of everyone. Take into account what everybody wants to do and plan an itinerary accordingly. You should definitely add excursions and activities that can be enjoyed as an entire family.
For instance, it could be an activity as simple as bird watching! It’s a perfect way to keep everyone involved just by documenting on a field journal, identifying birds, and keeping a family log of every one of the birds you catch sight of. Whether it’s by taking or drawing pictures – prepare to get ready for some fun-filled adventure with your fellow family members.
Limit the use of electronics
This might be an unpopular rule, but when digital devices are removed from the equation, family members will be encouraged to actually speak to one another. After all, you want to actually spend the holiday communicating with each other rather than have faces stuck to their phones.
Still, allocate a specific time of the day to let your family members take a break and unwind with their technological devices – be it for playing their mobile games or posting phones on their social media.
Other than for that particular period, for the rest of the holiday – no digital devices!
Once in a lifetime activities
Just like a yacht birthday party, a family bonding session is a great way to create long-lasting memories.
Without a doubt, there are loads of activities that you will be able to do once you are sailing around the coast. For example, you can take this opportunity to watch a sunset by the waters; something one won’t usually get to do when you’re on land!
The experience is just extra sensational and it’ll definitely make for an excellent photo that you and your family will cherish forever.
Create delicious food together
Certain luxury yacht charters do have chefs who will be ready to whip up scrumptious meals according to guests’ preferences.
But rather than leaving the cooking duties to someone else – why not do it on your own with your family members instead? If there is one thing that can bring a family together it’s eating delicious food, and it’s twice better when it’s a meal that has been cooked by everyone!
Try out different kinds of cuisine and snacks; food that you haven’t tried before as a family. It could be Vietnamese, Korean, Thai or any other cuisine that appeals to you and your family! No matter the choice, as long as everyone is on the same page – the cooking experience will make for a fun one. Just make sure you do everything in your own kitchen beforehand so the cleanup process will be a lot easier. At the same time, this will also make way for the ultimate relaxing experience as you dig into your meals.
Undoubtedly, sitting around a table enjoying a delicious meal and chatting away is one of the best ways to bond as a family while experiencing food from a foreign land.
If you want to strengthen a relationship with extended family, why not invite them along? This will be a great opportunity to bond with family you don’t see as often or haven’t had enough quality time with.
