Research commissioned by the Travel Association reports couples who travel together are significantly more satisfied with their relationships; enjoying better sex and improved romance long after the trip ends.
Not surprising, we’ve all known that couples who travel together have healthier, happier relationships compared to those who don’t. Exchange those quick wilting flowers and high calorie candies for a gift that will bring you and your love closer and stronger by planning a romantic getaway
Almost two thirds of couples (63%) surveyed say a weekend getaway is more likely to spark romance than large or small gifts. Just one-third (36%) viewed receiving small gifts the same way, and only 15% rated getting big gifts like jewelry as important to improving romance.
Getting away together sparks romance! More than eight in ten (83%) of those who travel regularly as a couple say the romance is still alive in their relationship, and fully seven in ten (72%) of the couples surveyed believe traveling inspires romance.
Couples who travel together report having a better sex life than those who don't Three-quarters (77%) of respondents who travel as a couple say that they have a good sex life, compared to 63% of couples who do not travel together. More than one in every four couples (28%) say their sex life improved after traveling together and of those, 40% say sex together is permanently better after travel.
Couples who travel together have more time for intimacy A majority (59%) of couples say that being more intimate is an important reason to vacation together. Among couples that did not take a trip together in the past year, nearly one in four (23%) say they "do not have enough time for intimacy and sex."
The survey interviewed 10,000 adults and found that travel can boost romance because it allows couples time to talk, reconnect and share new experiences. It also provides a change of scenery and a break from the routine of children, chores and busy schedules.
The best news is that you don't have to travel to Tahiti for week or plan an expensive getaway. Just one night within driving distance from home offers as much opportunity to reconnect, explore and play. Find new restaurants, theaters or wilderness and create a new experience together.
My favorite two travel quotes are “Travel is not about destination but education” and "Love, like everything else in life, should be a discovery, an adventure, and like most adventures, you don't know you are having one until you're right in the middle of it"
