Why the Journey is Better When You Have Someone to Share it With

Going it alone has its advantages, of course. If you’re looking for maximum freedom to go where you desire, when you desire and in whatever way you desire, solo travel might be the right thing for you. But for many people, having someone along for the ride is indispensable.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll look a little at the How of travelling with someone: How to not kill your travel partner, How to negotiate with each other, etc. But today, we’re focusing on the Why. Check out why these travellers think travel is better when you have someone to share it with.

The Top 3 Reasons For Couples to Pursue “L’Avventura”

To my husband Adam and me, “l’avventura” is the fine art of picking a place to go and seeing where we end up.

Some people might see this pursuit of adventure as a waste of money, elaborate chore avoidance, or even restless leg syndrome, but it works for us. More specifically, it works for our marriage.

Here’s why:

Love Letter to a Reluctant Traveler

So, maybe you and your better half are in a slump. You feel like you’ve tried to plead your case for a vacation, but your partner, in answer, has escalated from stolid indifference to eye rolling, whining to panic. When the emotions and excuses have faded, you’ve found yourself still in your home…waiting.

You remain convinced that making a plan to go somewhere, whether it’s close by or several time zones away, is the answer to rediscovering your passion — maybe even the sound of your own laugh.

If your partner could only see that it’s important to take time for yourselves, away from work, family, friends and chores, they might save not just your love but also their own life. Because if they don’t agree to take you away on a trip, for a few days, a week, or more…you may have to kill them as they lay sleeping.

Before it comes to that, consider handing them this letter.

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

    • Kiwi Blog Bus

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
