To travel is my greatest passion and I am fortunate that I’ve got to travel to some places that I like. I travel once or twice in a year, I know that’s quite a bit small in number but for a full-time expat working lady like me, I should be even more thankful that I’ve got to travel to places on my bucket list.
On finding the right travel companion, it might be tricky for others whom to choose. But in my case, (and the majority of married women out there) I would perfectly consider my husband as the best travel companion.
I truly enjoy and love being with him any time of the day and most especially when we are traveling. There are instances that we role- play as strangers, introduce ourselves to each other and get along as if we are not partners in real life. He makes every minute of our traveling truly worth remembering and fun.
And before everything gets cheesier, I will write down below five unbiased reasons why I consider him as my best travel companion.
HE IS MY BEST FRIEND
Aside from the fact that he is my husband, he is also my ultimate best friend. He exactly knows what I love and hates about most things. And truth be told, nothing is better than having a husband who is both your lover and your best friend.
HE BRINGS OUT THE BEST IN ME
He’s more myself than I am. He believes more clearly the things that I can do more than I believe myself. The last time we went on a hiking, I almost give up on our halfway but he brings out all motivating words to get me through and reach the top. It was an amazing experience when you attain your goals, when in fact you’re almost giving up. It’s all because of him.
HE HAS AN ENDLESS JOKES AND STORIES ON HIS POCKET
Never a day that he cracks a joke on me. To which it’s always a hit and makes me giggle with laughter. I do not know where he gets all those jokes that even to small things that we see he can easily come up with a humorous topic about that. Wherever we are, even in 36,0000 feet above the ground, he has always a bunch of jokes stored in his pocket to which I truly like when we are traveling.
HE ALWAYS BUY ME FOOD AND COFFEE
And he never gets annoyed that I am always searching for food all the time. He exactly knows when is the best part of our trip to get me fueled by coffee and sweets. Arriving at the airport before our flight, he will willingly volunteer himself to buy me coffee and most times that he will ask me what do I want to eat.
HE NEVER SAY NO IN TAKING MY PHOTOS
As a matter of fact, he has an eye for instaworthy spots and makes me thankful for that! He is very supportive about my craft and helps me improving it too. He does a really good job in taking my photo, and never, never did he says NO about it. He even directs me on what post to do, advising me on my right angle, to smile or not, look at the camera or look away. He directs everything on my photo!
HE IS THE LOVE OF MY LIFE
To travel with the most comfortable person to be with makes your travel smooth-sailing. I won’t deny the fact that traveling sometimes creates tensions when ridiculous things happen out of control but when you have your partner, you can just go with the flow and let things happen the way they wanted to be. (It always happens to us!) Having him by my side when traveling feels me more secure and always a minute worth treasuring.
Having a husband along the ride is a rewarding experience when traveling. You both enjoy each other company and by means of traveling, you grow together as a separate individual. Travel changes people, and that’s a magic of exploration does to ourselves. A solid support system who knows you is a great technique for making the travel worthwhile.
