Traveling together as a couple can lead you to the most vulnerable experiences and memories. Most couples understand that traveling has a positive effect on their relationship. But we all agree it is hard from time to time to keep that sparkle in extreme situations. So where is that golden mean?
According to a survey it was found out that couples who travel together agree better and have fewer disagreements than couples who don’t travel together. And there are many reasons for that.
Your Inner Growth
Many relationships, even with friends, ended up due to growth. What I mean here is that inner growth is important for relationships and traveling is the best time to grow together. You face hard situations together, then learn a lesson and move on. Even in some situations a growth is possible from one another.
A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions – Oliver Wendell Holmes
Traveling Shows Real You
Traveling makes you more patient and understanding. Everyone while traveling face unexpected situations and you will for sure experience heights and lows on your travel. It means your partner will see you at your best and worst. But eventually if you can still love a person after seeing the worst he can show, it will be like an ultimate love testiment for each other.

Travels will show how most of the problems are resolved more easily when you woks as a unit!

Create Memories Together
Traveling together means having fun together! It is always better to share the joy with someone you love. Remember those times when you got back from the trip and you were filled with stories to tell. But imagine how good it is when those special moments are lived through with your partner. Best memories comes from adventures and traveling is the best time to experience it.

Traveling can improve your perspectives in life. It can be a ticket to a better selves. And if you travel together, you will gain new experiences together.

Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you traveled. –Mohammed
We are in a relationship less than a year. And we decided to go on a big trip to Asia after being half of a year together. I know, some people are still not sure if they want to be with the person after this period of time. But it was all simple for us. We knew we wanted to walk with each other through an entire life.
Never go on trips with anyone you do not love. – Ernest Hemingway
Traveling with your partner is like a roller coaster. Everything comes and goes fast. You need to learn how to find the right pace for each other to feel comfortable.
We encourage each other to take either it’s a big or a small step. For example, both of us started plant based diet together. While living a sustainable life is our dream, now with intense traveling it’s hard to complete it completely.
Travel is like love, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like love, never really end. — Pico Iyer
Many people say you travel to escape the reality. But you travel to live one. We all choose our path in life. And if one says your way of life is unacceptable, it doesn’t mean you doing it the wrong way.
Some people live more in twenty years than others do in forty. It’s not the time, it’s the person. – Doctor Who
The thing about seeing places is that you will never comeback the same. You will learn new ways, innovative solutions, but the surroundings of your home town will remain the same (or slightly different). Traveling changes a person as much as he is willing to change. As much his mind is open for it. But in the end, he will come with a fresh view.
Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” ― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky
Best life lesson
What I have learnt from traveling that no matter what life brings your way you have to accept it. Even when you think that it’s a bad thing. And most important thing, don’t forget spend quality time in nature. It’s good for your body and mind. Like walking barefoot resonance you as energy changes and it’s called earthing.
Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe. – Anatole France
In the end, don’t forget to travel with your kids when they eventually come to your life. I remember traveling with family from really a young age and it’s the best time memories I have and it shaped my mindfulness and openness for the world.
I am a passionate traveler, and from the time I was a child, travel formed me as much as my formal education. – David Rockefeller
