    It’s great to hear the stories behind these couples and what travel means to them. I admit, I’m ‘Mr. Solo Traveler’ but I admire those who can put up with each other on the road for extended periods of time. Bravo! 🙂

      Thanks Samuel! It’s so different traveling solo vs. as part of a couple. I think it’s easier to meet people if traveling solo, although it can be a lot more comfortable traveling with a loved one!

    What a great idea! It’s great to hear how all these couples met and began traveling together. My husband and I caught each other’s interest because a group discussion led to the discovery we had both visited Egypt. Once we started dating, it was a new adventure every weekend, traveling within a few hours of our home. Now we’re married and travel the world! Everyone knows us as the traveling couple! It’s great just to have something in common that we both enjoy doing together.

      So true! The key to traveling with a loved one is common interests– and patience of course. Thanks for your thoughtful comment.

    Aw, aw, aw!!!
    I love solo travel but sometimes I think it wouldn’t be bad to have a partner in crime:)
    I am sure though, that he/she really has to be the RIGHT person, or travel can seriously screw it all up!
    Love reading about these successful stories… happy Valentine’s day everyone!!!

    I always have said that traveling is one of the best “tests” in a relationship because you’ll find out really quick if you can make decisions together and be together all the time!

    Hey, I like what you did with the site! Anyhow, I didn’t read this article because I am single. Please do more stories for SINGLE people!!!! Also, I am curious about how to get other people to fund your trip – like using requests for donations – if you are doing non-profit work, like visiting an orphanage by yourself (if you are single). Do you think that is played out? Lots of Love, Sissie

      You should do a Google search for your question about working at an orphanage abroad (try “voluntourism”). Sorry, cannot help you on that one!
