Travel is amazing no matter how you slice it, but there is something extra special about sharing a trip with the one you love. This has definitely held true for us, in fact choosing to travel together has been one of the most enriching things we’ve ever done for our relationship.
Here are 7 ways that travel together will strengthen your bond as a couple:
1.You’ll see the world through their eyes.
Is there anything better than experiencing new places or stunning scenery hand in hand with the one you love?
2. You’ll find out things about each other that you never knew.
Whether it’s a scenic reminder of an unshared memory, or a plate of food that includes an ingredient you didn’t realize he hated, travel together brings up best stuff!
3.You’ll build unique memories as a couple that will strengthen your bond.
It’s science. New experiences, new food, shared experiences – just look at how many travel-related things made it on this list!
4. You’ll find space to regroup away from everyday distractions.
Sometimes this is just what you need to get perspective and create a plan of action together.
5. You’ll have some of the best talks ever.
It seems like new scenery always sparks new conversations. Remember when you were dating and could talk about nothing for hours? Travel together can bring you right back to that sweet spot.
6. You’ll have the chance to overcome challenges together.
It’s these experiences – getting lost, seasick, or even just disrupted plans for the day – (and overcoming them) that strengthen your relationship most of all.
7. You’ll experience the adventure factor.
Being in new places doing new things with the one you love breathes new life into your relationship. This article from Lifehack explains it so well.
