I met Tony in Nov 2009 at a friend’s ugly Christmas sweater party - another ridiculous party theme that college students used as an excuse to drink. We were young, naive and fell for each other fast...Those 2 carefree years together in college were so much fun - we got to know each other, made great friends, and drank wayyyyy too much beer & ate $5 Papa John’s pizzas almost every night out. We’d built a strong relationship that lasted through 1 year apart while Tony started his career in Chicago & I finished my senior year but I knew that the ultimate test would be our first international backpacking trip together.
We’ve learned so much about ourselves and each other on all of our trips - big & small - that we never would have just staying at home in our usual routine. Which is exactly why we’ve put together the 5 reasons why every couple should travel. If you & your significant other have traveled together or are considering traveling and you’re nervous about it, this blog is for you!
