Benefits of Traveling as a Couple

Traveling together as a couple is great for building a healthy relationship.

Traveling is a big part of our relationship, and we strongly encourage every couple to embrace it. Traveling doesn’t necessarily mean you have to fork out hundreds or thousands of dollars to get on a flight to another city or country, it could be just a short drive or ride to the next town to explore.

While we travel, we make happy memories, which last forever. It is important to constantly create precious memories together as a couple because time is limited.  Have you heard of the saying ‘Time passes, life goes on but memories remain…?’ If you do not make the most out of life every second of every day, time will just creep by, not waiting for anyone, young or old, healthy or sick, ever so selfishly, just ticks on without a care in the world… And before you know it, you have lost precious time that you can never get back with your soulmate, even if you had millions of dollars.

There are so many benefits of traveling as a couple and we hope to inspire you to travel more together like we do! Here they are:

A New Adventure

A new adventure keeps the relationship exciting as you discover, learn new things and grow together as a couple.

Living in a New Environment

Living in a new environment puts the both of you out of your comfort zones and poses healthy challenges to overcome together as one, bringing out positive sides of both people which you might not have seen before.

Couples traveling together can experience other cultures such as floating food market.

Away from Home

Being away from home allows you to appreciate what you have with each other as you mature as a couple along the journey.

‘WE’ Time

‘WE’ time is crucial in any happy and healthy relationship. Traveling is a chance to spend time together with only each other as company, enjoying every moment without the day to day life stresses and creating amazing memories.

Sun and Fresh Air

Going from one place to another not only exposes the both of you to fresh air, but also the sun, which is filled with Vitamin D that naturally boosts the mental health. If you are unaware, there is actually a scientific correlation between insufficient Vitamin D in the body and depression.

A couple traveling together and spending time in the sun are happy.

Seize Every Opportunity to Travel

Lastly, remember that time waits for no one. Seize every opportunity to travel and keep creating memories with your loved one. As a famous and very wise person once said:

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart” – Confucius –

  1. Hi Alicia,

    What a great article, I really enjoyed reading it!
    I am married and have two beautiful children, and since the kids were born we didn’t have the time to be together:) Like many other married couples:) It would be an excellent idea to travel just both of us. You have given great suggestions, and it really makes me want to follow them!
    Thank you for this great post!

    1. Hi Daniella! Thanks I’m glad you found the article helpful! It’s never too late to travel and experience new places and cultures as a couple. I understand, it can be so much more challenging to travel with kids, perhaps it’s something to look forward to when the kids are older, or if you somehow managed to organise time away that would be fantastic

  2. You must be enjoying a very close relationship with your special someone, it sounds you know from personal experience how traveling as a couple keeps your relationship strong and healthy.

    Awesome benefits you shared in your article, some very special moments can be enjoyed traveling as a couple and not alone.

    1. Hi Jeff, thanks! Alicia and I love traveling together and several of our friends have shared their experiences too. Some great adventures and fun!

  3. A great article! I write a travel blog and can definitely say that travelling is one of the best things you can do, whether as a couple or alone – it really broadens the mind and breeds tolerance and understanding in my opinion 🙂

    Being somewhere different can free your mind and give clarity to things in your life. I try and travel whenever I can, whether its to a new town in my home country of the UK or to a completely new country.

    1. G’day Louise! Absolutely agree with you that through traveling, you can ‘find yourself’, as many travelers have experienced. We haven’t been to the UK and would love to travel to that part of the world, in the near future hopefully! There’s so much to see in Europe and is definitely on our travel list — do you have any must see/experience local places that you can recommend to us?

      Have you been to our home country – the sunny land down under (aka Australia)? 🙂
