5 Tips for Travelling With a Partner

If you’re looking for couple travel advice, you’ve come to the right post. This video is 13-years in the making! My husband Siya and I started travelling the world together right at the beginning of our relationship and never stopped. We are high-school sweethearts and global travel buddies with great tips to share with you on how to travel with a partner.

Travelling with a partner is the ultimate relationship test.

You really get to know many sides of your partner in a very short time. For better and for worse are really defined when you travel the world together. That’s why many who’ve never done it are adamant about taking that first trip. It can feel worrisome knowing you will be faced with the “not so pretty aspects” of a relationship. There will be days when you won’t be able to stand your partner, and you’ll have several conflicts of interest, but these are days when you learn and grow the most together.

5 Tips for Travelling With a Partner

Travel will strengthen your bond like nothing else.

Travelling is the ultimate way to develop a bond with your loved one. I truly believe nothing will deepen your connection the way travel can.

Travelling has taught Siya and I many lessons which we want to share with you. The following 5 tips we discuss in the above video are ones that we’ve learned throughout the years. Each one has really strengthened out relationship. The 5 tips are:

  1. Learning to Compromise
  2. Taking Time Apart
  3. Dating Again
  4. Getting Through the Shit
  5. Not Thinking of Home

    I feel about travel the way a happy new mother feels about her impossible, colicky, restless newborn baby – I just don’t care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because it’s mine. Because it looks exactly like me.

    Getting complacent is a relationship is our biggest fear so we try and leave random notes and messages.
    We are just 2 years into the relationship and been travelling just under 2 years but we have made so many memories that we treasure.

    We love getting lost and most of our trips are spontaneous ones. No matter how hard we try, we end up getting lost and then have a 5 second argument and back to our abnormal selves lol. Also, I’m getting better at directions and google maps…that’s another story lol
