Other Grandeur Travelers.

Why I love Traveling With Thee.


For You.

(This post would have been more appropriate for Valentine's Day but when the elusive inspiration comes, I go with the natural flow).

It is completely ridiculous to think that any brand or type of travel (i.e solo traveling vs. traveling with a partners/companions) is better than the other. There's a myriad of reasons why our restless feet continue to take us to places. Each of them we have to understand and respect. I have already written about the perks of solo traveling once but this short post is written so I can share why I love traveling with someone special.

To fully appreciate traveling with a companion or partner, solo traveling is vital. Nothing can be more liberating than you trying to discover this big world with no one to hold you back. I highly advise everyone to do it at least once. But sometimes, there are moments when we long for someone with whom we can share those experiences. We pause and wonder what it would be like to have those solo travel experiences with someone. Will it be more meaningful? More memorable? Honestly, I believe the whole experience of travel becomes extra special when you find a travel soul mate.

I don't want to sound like a hopeless romantic here but wouldn't it be nice to be holding hands with someone you love after going to Paris countless time alone or with friends? To share that unique time with that person when you see Macchu Picchu or the Pyramids of Egypt? To swim dive in the waters of Amanpulo or Maldives? The list goes on.

In life, our best investment would always be relationships. We are, after all, social beings. When we travel with someone we love, we become braver and more secure. Traveling with your boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, or husband can help solidify and strengthen the foundation of your relationship. It can salvage a sinking ship. To have someone who will always be there to experience the best thing this world can offer--travel-- that's priceless.

If you have found that travel soulmate, consider yourself lucky. Hold on to that person because at the end of the day, what you two have will always be the greatest adventure of all.

I absolutely agree. No matter how beautiful the place is, it wouldn't be so perfect unless you are with your special someone. Or even if the place is not so beautiful, what makes it perfect is your lovely partner. ;)

well, i agree. Yes, it would be wonderful to have a partner on these trips. I've never done a lot of traveling, but when I did I always went with somebody. I can't imagine being a solo traveler, but i believe it would also be a good experience. The freedom to meet new people, to be free of schedules and itineraries that aren't yours... well that just sounds awesome too.

Agree! Each would have its own pros and cons but traveling with someone is always fun! :)

my friend once told me: "It's one thing to be able to travel to places. Being able to do so with your better half is a whole new different story."

a newbie here. I think I'll be browsing your site more often. Nice one! :)

Hi Mishi! Thanks for dropping by! I totally agree! :)

There are places that are best to visit with a loved one or friends.. but either way, having someone to share your smiles, laughters and craziness is all worth the hours spent on the road.. I've yet to find my travel soulmate.. and that's the term I just learned today doc.. hehe :)

deobaraanmd said...

I got hooked up travelling solo doc. It's nice though sometimes when i get memorable unfortunate events that make me braver. I had traveled in groups and with a partner as well pero mas natuwa ako magsoul searching. It feels great being free spirited. Belated happy V day! I got busier lately. I missed reading your blog.
