Why You Should Travel With Your Significant Other.

Why You Should Travel With Your Significant Other.

Hey everyone! I haven’t written a post in awhile, as I’ve been busy working on the social media for Wondering & Wandering, but I have been wanting to write about this topic for awhile. Bri and I travel as often as we can, and it’s an important part of both of our separate lives and our life together. So without further ado, here is why you should travel with your significant other and how to not kill each other while traveling. I hope all of you who read this article get encouraged to start planning a vacation with your significant other!


Why You Should Travel With Your Significant Other


Lots Of Alone Time

This isn’t so much a tip as it is a potential test in your relationship, especially those who haven’t been living together for very long or even not at all. There is far too much you learn about someone once you go to bed and wake up to them all those consecutive days, as well as all of the seemingly endless time spent together. You can learn a lot about someone while traveling – whether it’s their behavior and attitude during a flight or car ride, or a public space that’s brand new to both of you. Plus, if you get into a fight, it has to be fixed ASAP because you’re stuck with them in the same place for the same days, as well as the same transport back home.  If you came here for relationship advice, the best advise I can give you is that no matter where you are or what the fight is about, always resolve it before you both go to bed.

Here's why you should travel with your significant other. Book your tickets now, it'll be the best thing you ever did for yourself and your relationship.


Running A Budget Together

The number one thing any and every couple fights about is money. It’s always been that way and it always will be.  Going on vacation together will help to teach you how each of you likes to spend their hard earned and saved up money. Perhaps you’re like me who is always hoping to go under budget and doesn’t have a strong affection for souvenirs. Most likely though, you’re probably like Bri and want to spend at least the entire budget and get a souvenir from each and every stop.

Learning To Compromise

Perhaps you want to go to a beach vacation while the other wants a sightseeing tour. Or once you’re on the vacation, maybe you want to go to a famous tourist spot, while the other wants to go somewhere less well-known. It’s very unlikely you two will always agree on the destination so there’s a need for compromise.

Putting Yourselves In A Stressful Situation

There’s no denying that traveling can be stressful. Having to route yourself to your next destination in a city you’ve never been before can cause quite a meltdown. There have been a few instances where it’s happened to Bri and I. Once, while we were in Brussels, we were walking around the neighborhood we were staying trying to find someplace to eat and it started down pouring. We had just gotten in from Paris and were both starving so our tempers ran pretty high and we started to argue about nothing. We then ordered McDonald’s and our problems were solved (Bri says McDonald’s solves all of her problems). We’re planning our honeymoon right now and to prevent any sort of stress while on the trip, I’m secretly hoping we’ll spend the entire trip in our room, the bar, or the pool.

Creating Memories

You take trips to create great memories that you’ll remember for a long time. Creating memories with your significant other is really what it’s all about and can help bring you two even closer together. From the moment you start planning the vacation together you’ll feel closer to them and that feeling will continue beyond the moment you arrive back home. Sharing a unique experience with someone is truly a gratifying experience. Bri wrote about this a few months ago, but we shared quite the unique (even though negative) experience when we were trapped in the Eiffel Tower while we were in Paris this summer because of a knife attack (luckily no one was hurt).

    Completely agree with all of these points. Traveling with my husband is most wonderful. It has brought us closer together and allowed us to learn new things and grow as people together. You gotta really like each other tho! 😉

    My boyfriend and I have been travelling for nearly a whole year and there have certainly been some bumps along the way but we are learning 🙂 we lived together for three years and were together five before that but nothing prepared us for this! Wouldn’t change it for the world though!

    Awesome post, and so true! I feel like you learn so much more about your partner since you’re in unique situations that you wouldn’t probably need to face while doing normal life back home. You can learn a LOT about a person based on how they react to a delayed flight 😉

    ps, as for your honeymoon, my husband and I had a very stress free honeymoon since we barely went out. We opted for netflix and snacks in our room most days haha. Although it wasn’t very adventurous like previous trips, it was so restful and just what we needed.
