More and more couples are chasing the dream of travelling longterm together. This is something we’ve done too, as we’ve travelled together for over 1.5 years through Australia and Asia. Of course, travelling together isn’t all rainbows and butterflies and previously we’ve already asked 10 couples how they keep their relationship fun while travelling. This time, we asked 15 couples what the best part is about travelling together and also pitched in ourselves. So are you thinking of travelling together with your loved one? This post contains enough wanderlust to make you want it even more!

Most of these awesome couples also run a blog and/or have an amazing Instagram page about their travels, be sure to check it out!

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

Alex: The best part about travelling as a couple is all the things you learn about each other. You will experience and see sides of your partner that you would probably not see otherwise. And you will grow together and handle stressful situations as a team.

Christine: What I love most about travelling with my partner is all the memories we create together and all the moments we’re sharing as a couple. And if you feel a bit sad, you have someone who’ll give you comfort and cheer you up!

About Paulina & Pedro: Our story began in 2015 when we first met in Barcelona. We met on the beach and from that moment on we started to hang out together. Things between us developed naturally untill the point we realize we shared the same goals and identify with each other. After that, we decided to move together, start to plan our first big trip overseas to Southeast Asia and create our travel blog. Three years passed and we developed a strong bond together, nowadays we are looking forward to new challenges.

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

The best part of travelling as a couple is that we are able to share our travelling experiences, joys, fears and thoughts with each other which combined strengthen our relationship. Having each other present to give sympathy, love and confidence when it’s needed is that what makes travelling as a couple a great adventure.

Travel Couples Share the Best Part about Travelling Together, travel couples, travelling together, wanderlust, couple inspiration, #travelcouple, what is the best part about travelling together, what is the best part about travelling as a couple, Away Lands, Amy & Brandon, chapter travel, Nomadic couple,

About Brandon & Amy: Away Lands is the creative partnership and life journey of Amy Seder and Brandon Burkley. Away Lands was sparked after feeling unfulfilled in our jobs and wanting more, and what started as a decision to embark on an adventure around the world quickly evolved into starting a business together. We’ve been on the road travelling full-time since September 2016, working on photo and video campaigns across the world.

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

Travelling as a couple teaches you how your partner really, truly is at their core, and you get to know each other so strongly in such a short time frame. Because you’re constantly dealing with new situations, new places and the unexpected, you see how your partner reacts to everything – from missed flights to getting lost in a city without a cell phone, to incredible hotel rooms and seeing places that you had dreamed about your whole life for the first time. If you want to find out if a new relationship is built to last, take a trip to a foreign country early on and see if you still want to be together at the end of it.

The best of travelling as a couple is not dissimilar to the best parts of just being a couple, living together, having new experiences together, solving problems together – just on a heightened scale.

About Mark & Miranda: We met 8 years ago and became close friends pretty quickly – though it took us another 3 years to actually start dating! In 2015 we quit our jobs and took to the road, travelling through South East Asia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Europe, and Southern Africa together. We’re now based in London and are enjoying a much slower pace to our travels again!

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

We think travelling together is one of the coolest things you can do as a couple. Being able to share all those amazing, unpredictable experiences that happen while you’re on the road with someone that you already enjoy a special bond with, is definitely the best part of travel for us. Whether it’s exploring a new country, trying to overcome a language barrier, tasting new flavours, or simply trying to survive a 42-hour bus ride (we’ve been there!), being able to navigate it all together definitely strengthens your relationship and helps you grow together. Plus we’re looking forward to reminiscing about all our adventures together when our hair is a lot greyer! On a practical level, it’s also generally cheaper, and it’s always nice to have a sense of familiarity with your person by your side.

About Monica & Alex: Monica and Alex travelled together extensively over the last year while they took time off work. They created the travel blog Harbor & Hill to inspire others to travel, including honest travel tips, favourite spots and unique ways to explore new places.

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

There are two things that have been the best parts about travelling as a couple. The first, is that we get a chance to experience everything together. Taking a year off to travel the world is something we have both always dreamed of doing but never really thought would happen. As cheesy as it is, we’ve built memories together and it’s been a great bonding experience.

The second thing is that it has challenged us as a couple. Spending that much uninterrupted time with one person can be hard, especially when you’re constantly being pushed outside of your comfort zone. I’ll admit, we argued more than usual during our travels but being challenged in that way and getting through those tough days makes us think that if we can handle that, we can handle almost anything.

About Sverrin & Bonita: In may 2016 we started our travels in South East Asia for six months and we have been wandering around Australia for almost a year now. Although we did not plan to keep on travelling for such a long time, we’re adding new countries to our bucket list on a daily basis and become more and more interested in videography and photography while our travels continue.

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

For us the best part of travelling as a couple is being able to enjoy the most memorable moments together. We can’t help but feel utterly blessed when we watch the Milky Way at night in the middle of nowhere through the rooftop window of our car. On a bed hard as a rock I must add, but hey, we proudly built it in there ourselves! So cliché, but moments like these have a way of making us appreciate the little things in life. Through travel ups and downs, it is great to have someone to laugh with and someone who always knows how to turn your frown up side down whenever you need it most.

About Mikey & Jana: We are husband and wife travel bloggers who enjoy spreading love while travelling the world. Our free spirits met in 2005 in the snowy fairytale of Vail, Colorado.

We’ve been to 47 countries together and keep on going.

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

Travelling together as a couple has been the best part of our life journey. We are absolutely the happiest, more loving and positive when we are on the road. We love that we get to share so many experiences, both good and bad together. We get more inspired and we motivate each other constantly. Travelling together brings us even closer and brings the best out of us.

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

The best part of travelling as a couple is having familiarity. I know it sounds corny to say home is wherever I’m with you, but there is truth to that saying. It is really nice having someone be your constant when everything else around you is constantly changing.

About Cato & Sander: We’re two dutchies who have been together for five years now. We have one big thing in common and that is that we both love to travel! Since the moment that we’ve met we started to travel around the globe. Right away we booked our very first trip. Since that moment the travel-virus kicked in! We’ve visited almost every continent and we are using all our spare time to travel around.

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

The best part when you travel as a couple is that you grow together! When you’re travelling as a couple, you really get to know each other. You see each other’s best and worst sides. But if you really get to know each other’s true nature and this matches with your own personality, then that’s the best basis for a longterm relationship.

Travelling as a couple is essential for strength, happiness and success in your relationship. You’re building memories that will last forever. We’re staying at the most beautiful places and we enjoy the most beautiful views together. The best thing of travelling as a couple is that we are not growing only as a person, but also in our relationship. Our travels have shown us adventures where we never dared to dream of. They also brought us closer than we ever imagined and they learned us lessons that we will never forget.

About Joanna & Richard: Rich and Joanna met through couchsurfing in Brazil in 2009 when Rich was backpacking across South America. Since then, they have travelled to more than 20 countries together and aren’t planning on stopping any time soon!

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

Travelling can be really exhausting but sharing special moments with the person you love makes it all worth it! We have been travelling together on and off for over 4 years now and to us the best part about travelling as a couple is that we push each other to do cool stuff all the time. We both love going on hikes and getting up early to watch the sunrise when we are travelling, but sometimes we get lazy. That’s when we rely on each other the most, to make sure that we don’t just sit back and take the easy option.

About Maartje & Roxanne: We’re Roxanne and Maartje, two tall blonde Dutchies travelling the world together. Three years ago we started dating, moved in together, separated for half a year for Maartje’s study abroad and we found out a world travel was inevitable. We finished our bachelor degrees (physical therapy and media & culture), worked our ass off in the cinema and as a nanny and barista, sold all of our stuff and started our big adventure in March 2017. With the plan to travel as long as possible!

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

Sharing all those amazing moments! Experiencing things together and always having someone to talk to; it’s the best. Travelling together really strengthens the bond; you learn to be a good team and get to know each other better and better. Having a constant factor in your life when travelling long term is so important. Everything is different and new all of the time, but that special someone is always there with you!

About Tino & Angela: We got married in 2009, both left our 9-5 full-time corporate jobs and made the switch to a free and independent lifestyle as Nomadic Entrepreneurs. We see the world as one big playground, travel to wonderful places to enjoy other cultures and lifestyles and we are exploring our path to becoming global citizens.

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

We’ve reduced our belongings to a minimalistic level and have no fixed address. Pacing ourselves, we jointly research and visit the most beautiful places in the world. It isn’t our intention, nor do we, rush through cities, townships and villages but we immerse ourselves in the cultures of the places we visit. We aren’t tourists, nor are we backpackers or expats. We believe we are the new generation Citizens of the world.

Sharing experiences and creating memories, we feel, is the most rewarding and precious aspect of travelling as a couple. We enjoy total freedom and independence, which enables us to truly be a couple. A leisurely joint breakfast time followed by working towards ways to further our plans for our business venture while soaking in all which crosses our path. This being our main reason why we have chosen this liberating lifestyle.

About Emma & Yannick: We met back in 2014 whilst backpacking on the island of Koh Phangan Thailand. We’ve travelled to over 43 countries before turning 21, documenting and photographing our way around the world one step at a time. Having worked in the luxury travel sector, we know a fair bit about travel hacking and finding deals. We’re now digital nomads helping people travel well for less on our blog.

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

For us, we’ve both always had a passion for travel and believe that those that travel together, stay together. Travelling as a couple has brought huge challenges; we’ve had to compromise, we’ve seen each other at our worst and best. But the best part about travelling as a couple has been the support we’ve given each other on the road. Your partner will always be there when you need someone to talk to or when you want to share your fears and aspirations. When you travel with your partner you’ll learn new things about them every day and see them in a new light than you ever would back home. Whatever way you look at it, travelling as a couple is a unique and such a rewarding experience. It will bring you closer together and create beautiful memories for you both to share that will truly last a lifetime.

About Lena & Bassam: Our goal is to find the adventure in everyday life, whether we are traveling or at home. We believe that finding the fun and adventure in everyday whether through food, home décor, travel, exploring our home, etc, makes our relationship stronger and our lives happier.

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

Our favorite thing about traveling together is that we have the opportunity to try new things that we ordinarily wouldn’t have. We both have really different travel styles and while it was initially challenging to combine them, our travel has become so much more well rounded. For example, I’m obsessed with adrenaline pumping activities while Bassam is scared of heights. I convinced him to take a glacier helicopter ride in Alaska and he LOVED it. Now he’s obsessed with helicopter rides and wants to do them everywhere! We even went on an open door helicopter ride in NYC.

Bassam loves that his interests have been expanded and he was able to conquer a major fear. I like to be on the go all the time when I travel and get the most out of the experience. Bassam prefers to have time to relax. Because of that we’ve incorporated a bit of a slow travel mentality, even when we don’t have time. This was initially difficult for me, but now I love it and feel I really got to experience a destination even if we didn’t get to “do” everything.

About Amrita & Richard: We are high school sweethearts who began travelling in University with the minimal funds we had and we were hooked right away. We continued to talk about the places we dreamed to go and year after year we made it happen. Any vacation time we have, we plan a getaway, whether it be far or near our goal is to keep making memories as we explore the world together. We recently had a baby boy and it is important to us to keep travelling as a couple and as a family. We want to share the world with him!

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

We encourage one another to get out of our comfort zones and try something new. We do have many shared interests but sometimes we have to be willing to participate in an activity we may not have otherwise chosen and it often ends up being a memorable and bonding experience. Whether it’s going to high tea, attending a sporting event or sleeping on a beach in Thailand. We both see the importance of broadening our interests and ensuring both of our dreams are being fulfilled as we explore this beautiful world.

About Jeffrey & Lisanne: During our first official date we already talked about travelling longterm together. Since then we’ve travelled for over 1.5 years through Australia, Asia and now closer to home in Europe. On Chapter Travel Lisanne writes travel guides, tips and more, while Jeffrey is often the photographer of the two.

What is the best part about travelling as a couple?

For us the best part about travelling as a couple is definitely creating all those special moments together. After we travelled together for so long we always have something to talk about. By travelling together you get to know each other so well too! We feel that if we shouldn’t be together, it would’ve definitely be clear by now. You’re forced to figure everything out when it goes bad and lucky to enjoy all the amazing parts in travel when everything is going great.
