When you think travel, you think dreamy destinations, romantic hideaways, untold adventures, and a world waiting out there to be discovered. What better way to discover that hidden world with all its magic then to travel together with your significant other. Whether you are dating, engaged, or married you should be traveling together. Traveling together is not only fun and a great time to try new things, but travel provides some great building blocks for couples. It is said the “couple who travels together stays together.” Here is what travel can do for you.
Strengthen your bond. Traveling together gives you time to strengthen the relationship as you face challenges. An opportunity to build and grow the trust in the relationship. A time where there are no outside forces of daily life to pull you away from concentrating on each other.
Discover more about each other. Now is a perfect time to see one another’s true colors. How they react to changes and how they handle stress. Are they able to let loose and enjoy or are they fit to be tied? Learn something maybe you didn’t know as far as a like or dislike or even a future dream.
Learn to compromise. As you are discovering each other’s styles, likes, dislikes, you will learn to compromise. Quite often in a couple one is the dare devil and one is not. You may have different visions of what relaxing means. Through travel you will learn to sort through the differences and select destinations and activities that appeal to both of you.
Make memories. Travel will create stories and make you story tellers. You will have moments to share deep into your relationship. “Remember when we….” And be sure to capture those personal photos and pictures to go along with the many adventures.
Rekindle the romance. Traveling together is definitely an opportunity to keep the sparks alive. We all need and I think even more so when we are in relationship that time to disconnect from the hustle and bustle to become human again. Whether you go near or far time spent away as a couple for a weekend, week, month allows you time to reconnect and remember why you first came together.
Want to liven things up and have a less boring relationship then make time for travel as a couple. Not only does it do all the things above, but it is safer, can be less money than single travel, creates quality time, and is double the fun!
