Warning to couples wanting to travel together
…just beware for all couples out there who want to start traveling with their significant other–especially to those independent travelers who have no problem venturing out solo…
The warning is: Once you begin traveling with your significant other, you will never be able to travel again alone.
At least, that’s true for us.
I firmly believe travel should not just be a recommendation for couples, it should be a requirement. If I ever do marriage counseling, I would make that a necessary step in the process. It isn’t just about getting away together, it is about experiencing new things together. Amelia went to Greece last year just a few weeks after we started dating. She had a blast, of course, but when she came back, she said she never wanted to travel without me again. I feel the same. I just can’t work up the same excitement about traveling if I know she won’t be with me. We are a unit. Tackling a new place without my number one teammate is not something I intend to do. So, just beware for all couples out there who want to start traveling with their significant other–especially to those independent travelers who have no problem venturing out solo–know that you will never again be able to acquire that same level of satisfaction and thrill from travel without that person there to experience it with you.
But this most definitely is not a negative change. Traveling with Amelia is more wild and satisfying than ever before. Travel together. Always and forever.
