Traveling is one of the most amazing and coolest thing that Ace and I have done together. As much as our parents advice us to start saving for the future we can’t help put a trip on our weekend schedule. (Sorry, Ma.)
Here are some reasons why you should travel with your partner in life base on our personal experience together:
Learning to understand and adjust to each other’s limitations.
Traveling means getting out from our comfort zone. Every place we visit always offers something different — different people, different challenges. Some of these situations test us to our limits and unknowingly pushed that red button on our head. This is the time when we get to know each other beyond the corners of our bedroom. Ace knows just how to support me when I’m having a hard time carrying my backpack or when crossing the river becomes a struggle. I know just how to make him keep his composure when he gets mad over some mean staff at the tourism department. Basically, we learned the art of balancing each other’s limits.
Traveling together is economical.
We have to admit it, the only thing that separates us and our destination is BUDGET. But, common… Paulo Coelho once said, “Travel is never a matter of money but of courage.” So, we have to learn to take risk. 😀 When we travel together, our expenses are halved making it economical. Better than traveling alone and paying the hotel all by myself.
Happiness is better shared.
Every place crashed on our list brings a rewarding feeling of happiness. And the feeling becomes double when we know we do it together. That fulfillment when you climbed the summit of a mountain alone is far compared to reaching the peak together. Jump shots are better done with him than doing it alone.
Someone asked us if we still have time for sexual intimacy after a long week of working in the corporate world and then spending our weekends out of town. Yeah, the question is a bit off the limit but we’re aware many are wondering. :p (Of course, we do. Why not? We’re on the same roof people, in case you forget.) We know we’re both busy working on weekdays but we don’t consider our weekend getaways “busy days”. It’s a “getaway“. It’s our way of destressing and unwinding, in such way we improve our sexual relationship in the process. Spending a night in the mountain or in the beach? Why not? It’s a chance to get adventurous. :p
Waiting don’t get boring.
How could we tolerate falling in line to get our ticket, a 12-hour ride on the boat or delayed flights and etc.? Simple, we have each other’s company. And we know just how to entertain each other. Nothing beats his corny jokes and my never ending stories.
Two heads are better than one.
Traveling together means sharing decisions. Sometimes it becomes complicated when our choices are different but we also learned to resolve it. It makes the work easier when one is thinking where to eat and the other is what to eat. 😀 Simple situation that requires decisio making could occur when traveling. And it is always better when you have someone with you who could make it when your head refuse to work.
We hope this inspires you to pack your bags, grab your partners hand and start going out of your bedroom. 😀
‘Til next time.
Love, Ace and Demi.
