Travelling together should be a must for couples. And here are 7 reasons beyond many that i want to highlight:
1 - How do you handle each other? When you travel together, most likely you will be 24/7 together. You will be in each other’s orbit much more than you are back home. This is going to be a great opportunity to see if you are heading towards overdose or not. Are you triggering each other? Are you pushing each other's "buttons" ? Are you experiencing more frictions? Or, at the opposit, do you experience a deeper level of connection?
How much of each other can you handle in a this type of context? The answers to those questions are usually a great indicator of what is going on in your relationship.
2 - You will have a chance to discover different sides of each other. When you are in a complete different situation, outside of the routine, you will definitely expose different aspects and traits of your personality that wouldn’t come up other wise. In short, travelling together gives you a chance to reveal unseen attributes and personality tendencies that remained hidden till then.
3 - Have different conversations. Work and home duties being out of the way, and now that the everyday logistic is left behind, what are you two going to talk about? Travelling together allows you to be in a different MIND SPACE. And that mind space will certainlely lead to conversations and talks you both eventually never shared before.
4 - Perfect moment for dating! There is no better time than holidays to reanimate a dormant flame in your romance! How many times do you find yourself caught up in a never ending list of tasks and barely have a minute for yourself, left alone for a quality time/catch-up your with your partner? Holidays provide you with the ideal environment to re-ignite the spark between the two of you.
5 - Do new activities together. Holidays usually goes hand-in-hand with a bit of adventure. And adventures are good for your relationship. Anything new /exciting that you both are going to share together will contribute to strengthen the bond between you two.
6 - Resynchronise your relationship. We all have 24 hours in one day, and for many of us it feels far from enough. When you take a break and go somewhere together, you put yourselves in a different TIME FRAME.
The way you use your time during holidays is different than it is back home. You have some time to restore. You have time to reset. And you can take some time to adjust things and resynchronise your relationship.
7 - Evolve and grow. You see, when you go to a foreign country, with a different language, different culture, different environment, different traditions and beliefs, It will definitely challenge and recalibrate your own perceptions, your own beliefs and the way you approach life. And that is gold for personal growth. So when you travel together, you EVOLVE AND GROW TOGETHER.
Understand that Travelling together is an amazing opportunity to know each other on a deeper level. It will for sure test your relationship and will take it to the next level - either up or down - Either way it will allow both of you to evolve and there is nothing more positive than that.
