Cupid’s Advice:

Traveling as a couple is one that can be very exciting. You both get to experience new sights and adventures together. You’re making memories that only you two will remember. But, traveling with your partner can actually strengthen your relationship as well. If you’re already packing your bags or are thinking about going off in the future with your significant other, Cupid has some relationship advice on how traveling can bring you that much closer:

1. Seeing the best and worst of your partner: Few things can quickly bring out the highs and lows in another person than traveling does. It’s automatically a stressful situation if you’re traveling somewhere where there’s language and cultural barriers. But, it can also be the best experience when you see your partner at the height of their excitement. You’re both being able to take part in something that neither of you has done before. Traveling usually shows every side of your partner, and if you can handle those highs and lows, it can create an unbreakable bond between the two of you.

2. More time to talk: It’s obvious that when you’re traveling there is a lot more time to talk than any other time in your relationship. You’re constantly driving, flying, or waiting around. And, if you’re traveling as a couple, you are the only two people you’re constantly talking to. Being able to have that time to really converse and open up to your partner while experiencing new things together is an opportunity to learn a lot more about them than you thought you knew. The open discussions and conversations you have on this trip can bring you that much closer to each other than you ever thought possible.

3. Teamwork: Traveling is a very stressful thing to plan and do. Traveling with your partner can show how well both of you deal with working together. There’s always the planning of the trip and packing the right necessities, and then there are the directions and where to go once you’re there. A lot of couples get into a pre-travel ritual that allows them to both work with one another to get everything sorted the way it needs to be before they go. It’s amazing how helpful teamwork and splitting up duties can make you feel less stressed, especially when the trip starts. It can also bring you closer by figuring out how to have the best time together as you travel, encouraging the other or keeping their interests in mind.
