Traveling is always stimulating, traveling with your partner is even more. The first time Mau and I traveled together, we left without a date back to the south of America. We did not know much about each other but we decided to take the risk because traveling is how you deeply get to know people.
Traveling reveals the true essence that hides below the excitement and the adrenaline. It is like the liquid of contrast that allows you to reveal the photographs. You get away from the cyclic life, from the earrings, you clear your mind, you get excited about everything new around, but the most special thing about traveling is those deep connections are created through shared experiences, memorable memories. That’s why when you travel with friends you end up creating much stronger bonds. But, do you imagine then what happens when you travel with your partner?
Here we give you 9 reasons why traveling with your partner will open a world of possibilities.
1. Get out of the routine.
New places, new experiences, new meals, new friends and even new beds. While traveling there is no routine, just new universes in constant change that expand your perspective. Traveling with your partner will break the monotony and energize your relationship completely.
2. Time is just for you both.
Do you remember when you first met? How did you prioritize the space for sharing as a couple? Traveling you recover those moments, the first and last in the list includes both and no one else, a real quality time.
“If not now, when?”
3. You get to know each other better.
What happens if you really share and enjoy the journey and the hours together? You learn to know each other deeply, to have the time to see, hear and have fun in different contexts and situations.
4. Friendship is strengthened.
Moments of travel create and expand our experiences to connect with new emotions and strengthen complicity and bonds of friendship with your partner. Living new experiences creates unforgettable moments that are imprinted in the memory of both and have a high positive emotional component.
5. Learn to tolerate more.
Being all day with your partner, especially if you are not used to it, can show you aspects previously unknown for both (and they will not necessarily be pleasant). Traveling teaches you to tolerate what you disagree with, to accept new other versions of your significant other. At the end, those foolish details that could be upsetting before, lose meaning. That is why traveling with your partner will make you more tolerant.
6. You adapt to change.
Not everything is perfect. If there is something fixed while traveling, it’s change. What invites you to adapt. Losing your luggage, a flight or money are stressful situations. This teaches you to trust your partner, the possibility of finding solutions together and adapting to any new situation is key. Then, you will remember those moments and they will be stories to laugh together.

7. Discover new aspects of your personalities.
Due to the continuous change during trips, creativity is usually increase. Do not be surprised if you discover new talents or skills in your beloved that you did not know and that become new connection points between both of you.
8. It stimulates intimacy.
Not only the intimacy of friendship, but also sexuality. Perhaps because of stress reduction, sexual appetite and stamina are increased. You rejuvenate. You unleash creativity and discover new erogenous zones, new spaces of fantasies. Have fun together, after all nobody knows you next door.
9. Work on detachment.
When we travel, we must leave many things at home. We detach ourselves in many ways, we learn to be happy with little because we finally have what matters most … each other.
That first journey was the foundation of our relationship. We have been traveling together for almost a decade and it has been the best thing that has happened to us. This is our experience and we can tell you that traveling has allowed us to deeply know each other, for building our relationship. Traveling for us is the best therapy when the wanderlust is activated. (read more about this here)
