Perhaps the main benefit of traveling together is extra time spent with the one you love. Of course, if you’re not big fans of tourism, then this is of no consequence to you. You don’t have to go on a trip to spend more quality time together. Maybe there are other occasions in your life that give you an opportunity to enjoy each other’s company. A trip itself is not a magical pill that will improve your relationship. Everything depends on you two. Love is the main reason why people are together. A joint trip will not completely substitute it, but it will certainly strengthen the connection between you, teach to value time spent together, and definitely bring many exciting moments.
A long-distance relationship is considered to be the best test for a relationship. But indeed, a small room in a cheap hotel will test the viability of your relationship even better than the distance. A joint trip can be a great way to know each other better before finally moving in or bringing your relationship to a more serious level. A five-day trip can reveal more facts about your significant other than dozens of dates and evenings at home. So, here are some reasons why single ladies and single men who want to develop their relationships should travel with their loved ones.
You can fall in love with your partner again. People need special circumstances to reveal their true nature. Usually, dates don’t provide those circumstances. Two partners are focused on each other, they talk about some hypothetical things, but it is actions and reactions to unexpected situations that can tell much about person’s real character. Going hiking or climbing a mountain, you can see that your partner is not just a good guy/girl but a very inventive, caring, and reliable person. This can make you respect and love them even more.
You see how good he/she is at planning. Any trip requires some preliminary preparations. Choosing a destination, buying tickets, packing up bags, planning out your travel budget – watching how your partner does all these things will give you a clearer idea of their preparation skills. At least you’ll know approximately how they would handle the wedding preparations.
You discover new facets of your partner. Exploring new places, you’ll discover much new information about each other. It may turn out that your partner knows German a bit or can share some insights into the history of the Templars.
You have plenty of romance. The two of you in a foreign country, walking the streets of an unknown city – it’s so romantic! When you go with friends, it’s just a lot of fun. But if you travel with your soul mate, each day on a trip will be a separate daylong romantic date.
You have someone to support you. In comparison with solo trips, joint getaways are more comfortable psychologically. You have your partner by your side, and you can go through some unpleasant moments (they are not a rarity on a trip – food poisoning, flight delay, lost reservation) with someone who will cheer you up and make you look on the bright side.
You share unique unforgettable moments. You’ll recall your joint trip after you return home. It’s a great feeling when you talk about things you experienced together, crack jokes only you understand, recreate some rituals you started during your trip.
You have more time for intimacy. How many times do you kiss and cuddle a day? If you travel together, you can rediscover and improve intimacy in your relationship. You’re close to each other 24/7, you can talk about your sexual desires, you can take your time and experiment in bed.
You become better friends. A relationship is doomed to be successful if partners are not only lovers but friends in the first place. During your travel, you act not only like love birds but more like best friends who enjoy hanging out together. You talk about different things you normally would not touch upon in everyday life, you get childish, you put up with each other’s habits and still love each other.
