Traveling changes you. Your perspective on life is broadened, your thoughts are challenged, and you see the world differently. You begin to connect the dots, realize both how big and small the world is, and grow as a person.When , they grow together. They get to witness first hand what is changing their spouse, which leads to better understanding of the other person. Nobody stays the person they were at whatever age they were when they were married. Look back 10 years into a relationship to the beginning and you’ll laugh and cringe and be slightly wistful for the people you used to be. But when you can grow together, you’ll still be the kind of people that chooses each other over the rest.

Seeing your partner at his or her worst and still loving him/her is the ultimate testament of love and the ultimate test of a relationship.
If you can deal with these situations and still love your significant other, you’re going to be just fine when it comes to a tedious argument about the toilet seat being left up.

Your adventure together will help to form a new and powerful bond between both of you. You will share vulnerabilities and grow closer together, forming a lasting friendship.
YOU HAVE A BETTER SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP
And it’s a fact that couples who travel together have the most amazing sex life.

YOU KNOW HOW TO COMPROMISE
It’s inevitable in any planning stage of life that disagreements will arise. That’s why most marriage counselors advise against tackling things like building a house until couples have been married for at least a year or two; the longer and stronger a relationship is, the more likely it is to be able to weather periods of disagreement.Couples who travel together know how to compromise and make decisions together. They know how to give and take along the way. If it is impossible to see and do everything on a trip, they know how to talk about their desires and reach a decision together. It may not be a seamless process, but they realize that the person and the trip is more important than their agenda.
YOU KEEP THE SPARKLE ALIVE
Having something new and fresh around every corner of your travels will make your experience together nothing short of magical. Any time a relationship becomes stagnant there is room for contamination. Rather than allow your relationship to become dull, constantly sharpen it and keep that spark alive.
Travel is one of the best ways to make sure you never lose that spark.
YOU WILL RETURN HOME WITH A SENSE OF COMFORT AND ACCOMPLISHMENT
After getting home, you will reflect on your time together and realize you can do challenging things together and survive, if not thrive. This will give you a feeling that you and your partner are great together.

Grab your partner and go! You will experience highs and lows and as a result, learn and grow more together. You will both return closer than ever before with new memories to reminisce on.
