Here’s why you should totally take our advice.
You become adept at handling glitches together
While en route your destination, a lot of mishaps might happen, including missed train or flights, misplacing luggage or tiffs with the natives of that place. How your partner handles the stress and irritation with you by their side, is something that you essentially get to know about them.
To compromise, or not to; is the question
While on a trip to an entirely new place, it becomes very important to adjust to the new surroundings. A position like this gives you a lot of chances to measure up how your partner reacts to certain things. Whether they compromise a truckload of things or turn into the worst nightmare of sticklers for the smallest of things, can tell a lot about the future, you two might have.
Stepping out of your comfort zone
In a new city, with its new culture , traditions and a ton of strangers, it becomes difficult to stay within your own comfort zone. This gives you an opportunity to notice how your partner reacts to these new surroundings, new people, directions and in general the way they are able to handle themselves in an extremely new, unfamiliar situation.
Apart from these, one of the best things that could happen to you would be, the fact that you would have all the time in the world, to give to each other. Also you can reach a different level of intimacy in these kinds of trips. It gives you a lot of space to become extremely comfortable in each other’s space, both in public and private.
