It’s February! And for a lot of people around the world, February is the month for love. That’s why Global Women Travel is talking all about couples travel. Because it doesn’t take a therapist to tell you that too little attention paid to a relationship means eventually there will be very little relationship left. We have ideas for places to go to reconnect and rekindle those wilting relationships. Many women, just like you, have shared itineraries they have enjoyed with their significant other. Our itineraries can be adapted to suit your travel needs and can give you ideas to create your own trip. Or just download and go with any of our downloadable pdf files. Check out our list of couples travel ideas for 2020!
Life sure knows how to chew you up and spit you out. And if you are anything like, well anybody, you spend the majority of your time giving all you have to your work, your family, your friends and if you’re lucky you have a little bit left for yourself. Sometimes it doesn’t give much time for your partner.
Sharing new travel experiences with someone can become your next inside joke, the secret no one else knows or your partner’s favourite new antic. Beach itineraries can be a wonderful place to sit together and recharge the battery. This itinerary in Palawan, Philippines is a wonderful mix of lounging and playing together with paddleboarding, snorkelling and swimming. Or try a beach vacay in Thailand where the water is cerulean and the poolside drinks are plenty. If you don’t want to beach it, but want some good quiet time together, try this road trip across the Scottish countryside.
Getting out of your daily routine is a nice way to see your relationship from a different angle. It gives you a chance to assess how things are going. It is a great time to make goals for the future or even get on the same page with current goals. If you are like me and hate setting goals you can always talk about where you see yourselves in 5 years, or 10 years and explore possibilities together. An adventurous itinerary might get your mind and body in the right perspective to review and tackle changes together. This New Zealand itinerary has great outdoor activities to get you working tougher as a couple. Or try a Laos Adventure where you can zipline from treehouse to treehouse. Or even this pastry crawl through Paris is a great way to talk out your life plans over delicious treats.
Many couples complain about the amount of attention given to devices instead of to each other. It’s easy to find yourself spinning in a vortex of over connection with everyone in the world but your partner. All those texts, chats, tweets, emails, pings, grams, etc can take the forefront of our brains because they are constantly feeding the part of our brain that keeps wanting more.
A couple’s trip is a great chance to rewire your own habits and your relationship habits. Take a trip to Switzerland where it’s easy to leave your phone inside and breathe in the beautiful outdoors. Places like Sri Lanka or enchanting Uzbekistan with limited internet service are great couples travel ideas for 2020 that can help you break poor device habits and refocus on each other all while experiencing a new culture.
If you have been with your partner for a while, chances are you know how hard it can be to find time for intimacy. There is nothing like a romantic trip together to rekindle some fire and passion for each other. (And if you are in a new relationship, there is a chance you are already want to plan a romantic getaway ; )
Global Women Travel has many romantic itineraries that have been shared by our readers. If you like culture and romance, try this couples trip to Bali where couples massages and the smell of the evening air will awaken romance in your heart. Or check out either of these trips to the Maldives. Who wouldn’t want to spend their time snorkeling all day and cuddling all night in a waterfront villa? You would be crazy not to. Even a romantic Italian getaway will have that fire rekindled in no time.
All you need is love (and a vacation)
My friend recently confided that she just took a trip with her husband to decide if they were going to stay together. It was a trip full of marital things. Some good and some not so good. There was much talk about how to make things better so they didn’t fall apart. There were personal revelations made and inner hearts assessed mixed in with couples massages, sightseeing, and quiet time.
They made some breakthroughs and are still working and growing as much as they can. Was it the perfect trip? Of course not. Very few trips are. But they made their couple trip a priority and their relationship a priority. And when you do that, love can grow. We hope our couples’ travel ideas for 2020 can help you to grow not just your travel passport but your love passport as well.
If you travel anytime this year, we would love to hear about it! Please share it with all of our readers through our online form to help other women make their own personal or couple travel plans.
