Five reasons traveling together is great for your relationship

Traveling together can do a lot for you relationship. I would even say it’s one of the best things you can do as a couple. Spending quality time together is always important, but it’s even better to get away from the monotony of every day and enjoy doing something different with just the two of you. So why not plan a trip for Valentine’s Day or just because?

It’s fun. Plan a break at the same time as your special someone. Get away from your daily lives and normal routines and spend quality time together. It’s exciting to explore a destination, eat different food and enjoy unique activities. A smart person once said, ‘We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.’ Don’t get stuck having the same dates over and over. Do something different, and make memorable adventures together.

It’s romantic. What’s more romantic than a getaway with just the two of you? Pick a destination you both want to see. Leave the distractions behind and enjoy the company of one another. You can pack in multiple dates all at once when on vacation – eat local cuisine, stroll the streets hand-in-hand, stop by museums or historic sites. Save time for relaxing and kicking your feet up together. Savor the alone time with each other.

Traveling tests your relationship. Traveling isn’t always as easy as that Instagram photo of you drinking a margarita on the white, sandy beach last summer. Problems arise, so it can be a great test for how you problem solve together and deal with adversity. Your flight could get delayed, making you have to alter your plans. You may face car trouble or accommodation issues. How you work together can help you with problems you face in the future.

Trips bring you closer. Making new experiences together is a great way to grow closer. Spending so much time with just the two of you can help you bond together more, especially compared with the typical Netflix date nights at home. Sometimes traveling can put you out of your comfort zone, and you’ll be in it together. Memories from your trips will be the ones you talk about in the coming days, weeks, months and years.

You’ll learn more about each other. Taking a trip with anyone can teach you a lot about someone. You have more time to talk to each other one-on-one, whether it’s deep conversations or silly ones. Additionally, you’ll see the way your special someone handles booking and organizing a trip. It gives you more insight into what they like to do and how they react to certain circumstances.

Get out there and plan a trip, love birds. Make new memories in different places and become closer than ever before.

  1. I totally agree! One thing is fundamental though, as far as I’m concerned: An important element is that both partners are “compatible” when it comes to travelling. Everyone loves to travel, but for different reasons. So, consider yourself lucky if your partner is interested in similar travel activities as you are. And if he does, make the most of it!

  2. Hey Kaylene,

    I also think that traveling is a great way to get to know your partner better. To find out, where you both stand and how you get along when you’re on your own, somewhere far away from the daily grind.

    People most times behave a little bit differently when they’re traveling than if they were at home. That’s really cool to see. In the end, you’ll have beautiful memories together.

    Best regards,
    Mimi

  3. I agree and have been dying to get away with my boyfriend! We went on a group trip last year but I’m hoping we get a chance to go somewhere just the two of us this year 🙂

  4. Completely agree! Being in a Long Distance Relationship, all our meet ups are like mini holidays and it’s awesome! Definitely a way of finding out more about each other under certain situations!

  5. Yes, these things are so true and you see it all the time on the Amazing Race. There is nothing that can bring you together like being lost in a foreign place.

  6. My husband and I travel alone and together. We are taking a cruise together soon for our 20th wedding anniversary. One of the things that happens when we travel is we slow down enough to reconnect. I think we all relate to our partners differently when we change our day to day living and / or our surroundings.

  7. Fully agree! You get to know the other person so much better and in various situations! Very good points!

  8. Agree with you! One of the things I love about traveling together is that I have someone I can talk to about the trip afterwards, and look at trip photos with, over and over, and he won’t get bored by it because he’s just as excited about looking back at our trip memories as I am.

  9. I have been thinking about this a lot lately, especially because my husband and I also run our website together, so there’s the whole ‘working with your spouse’ fun bit as well in there! I do think that our travels, in particular, have been critical to our relationship over time, and when we’re on the road, I think we’re our best versions of ourselves, which is such a nice way to be!

  10. This is a great post, I totally agree with you! I’ve been travelling with my boyfriend for 2 years now, and it can be trying, but I’d never trade it for travelling on my own. Travelling together and solving problems that we weren’t quite ready for has made our relationship so much stronger 🙂
