What to Expect From Traveling Together

What can be better than travelling? My answer is travelling together with your significant other.  Since 2010 Mike and I have been exploring this wonderful amazing world. I can safely say that my happiness is possible only if shared. Think breathtaking views of the Alps and boundless dunes; these are greater when you enjoy them together, and supporting each other helps to overcome any obstacles.

Travelling is a great test for your relationship. I’ve always said that traveling together will either make or break you as a team. Not all couples sit this test though, and before moving in together they seem to get along. Though travelling together is not the same as living together, just as a real date is not the same as a virtual date via some free dating site.

So, let’s see what to expect should you both decide to set out for a round the world trip, Europe trip or even jump outside of your comfort zone and move to another country.

You’ll Learn About Each Other’s True Colors

Travelling is stressful. From the moment you step foot onto foreign soil you will find yourself in a territory with an unfamiliar language, culture, traditions, food and so on.

No surprise than in a stressful situation people show their true colors. How they react in stressful situations and how the think on their feet, how flexible they are, and their ability to adapt and deal with conflict.

Living beyond a comfort zone acts as an accelerator. And travel is not always about a relaxed island getaway, but tensing flights, packing and unpacking, saving your common budget and endurance in emergencies.

You’ll Learn to Adapt and Compromise

In order to get the best out of your trip and not to waste your whole vacation arguing, you’ll eventually learn to compromise and come to a decision you are both OK with.

There are only two of you in this strange, foreign place, and the success of your travels depends on how well you get along. Knowing each other’s habits and peculiarities, and how you each behave in different situations will help you to prevent arguments and disasters.

Finding a compromise can be easy. In reality when your boyfriend wants to go hiking and you dream of lounging in the sun, a compromise is to schedule your time so as nobody feels deprived and disappointed.

You’ll Break Up Or Be Made Stronger

Hardship can either make your relationship stronger, or completely break it. I believe in the power of a positive attitude. Despite any circumstances you’ll have to deal while travelling, there will be so many unforgettable memories and moments to share with each other. And every minor annoyance, frustration, or hardship you fought through on the road will be forgotten in place of these memories.

When your mind is focused on positive things and you want to be closer to each other, a trip will be one more opportunity to discover not only the world around you, but the inner universe hidden in the depth of your soul mate’s heart.
