Testing Your Relationship Globally
Challenges that couples face during travel.
Holidays 07th Oct, 2021
When traveling with your partner, you’re sure to face some common travel challenges. In the end though, no matter the circumstances, you will see that this significant step in the relationship, was definitely a great decision and one of your best travel experiences. In fact, if you want to put your partner to the ultimate test, there is no better way than to travel the world. Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel worldwide, especially places that are difficult to get to and from, and if you’re still in love with that person by the time you get back, go ahead and get married.
1. Lack Of Personal Space:
Having a travel companion means being together all the time. During travel, you are bound to spend a lot of time together. Even if you take some alone time off, guess who is waiting for you back in the hotel? The good thing is that you will also get to know your partner on a much deeper level. For instance, you will smell the morning breath, witness a no-makeup face, among other things. So make the most out of it. Since you will be spending a lot of time together, you better communicate what you want to do. If you’d rather lay on the beach while they want to go for a hike on that particular day, that’s fine, let them. Just make sure at some point you go exploring together. Simply put, enjoy spending time together. Create new and unforgettable memories.
2. Embarrassing Moments:
Being together all day means that sometimes there will be awkward moments. You may get food poisoning resulting in all-day bathroom visits. Back at home, there was no need for your partner to witness it, but on a trip, you can’t hide. Learn not to be ashamed of being human, and don’t let both of you be ashamed! Make the most of it and laugh about it. Don’t take yourself too seriously. The embarrassing moments are often the only ones you’ll remember from the trip!
3. Language Barrier:
If you are traveling to a country where neither of you speak the language, it is an ideal situation to take your relationship to the next level. If neither of you speak the language, you will be confused by all the translations that you will do. You may need to communicate with gestures and sign language, but being together on this mission will bring you very close. Nothing makes memories faster than describing your ideal restaurant in China to a local taxi driver. Believe us, this is an experience that every good traveling couple has, so you better be prepared for it. If you speak the language, but your partner doesn’t, prepare yourself to be the translator at all times.
While couples’ travel can be challenging, don’t be discouraged. It will be, without a shroud of doubt, one of the best experiences that you can imagine. Likewise, it will strengthen your relationship like never before. Sometimes, couples’ travel can make or break a relationship, but that is for the best. After a couple weeks of fun and hardships, you will be in a better position to know if you want to spend the rest of your life with that person.
