Traveling domestically or abroad with your significant other can be a wonderful experience, bringing you closer together with your partner while expanding your cultural appreciation. Whether you spend a week on a beach together, or two weeks traveling from city to city in Europe, vacation time with your spouse can be relaxing, fulfilling, and a whole lot of fun.
Honestly though: it can also be a royal pain too. “Where do you want to eat?” “Where’s the hotel?” “Where do we exchange money?” “Did you pay that cab driver too much?” “Seriously, WHERE is our hotel?” “If I have to tell you one more time to put on sunscreen I am going to lose it.”
While some couples have a sick goal of bickering on every continent, others want their trip to run as smoothly as possible. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of the top 25 couples travel blogs to follow this year – that way you can emulate their successes, learn from their mistakes, and keep your next trip in the “fond memory” category and not remember it as the start of your breakup.

Don’t Ever Look Back is a travel blog written by Amy and Kieron. We’re a couple in our twenties that were born, raised and currently reside in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. After our first international trip together in 2007, the travel bug bit us hard and it’s always been a case of “where to next?” – a question we often get asked by friends and relatives. Our dreams and our priorities right now revolve around travel and our aim is to significantly expand on the 13 countries we’ve visited over the past 5 years. – Amy & Kieron, Don’t Ever Look Back @AmzKiz
After meeting at Leeds University in England, Gaz and I, decided it was time to see the world. So we sold everything we owned and packed what was left into a 65l rucksack. Working and saving hard for a year prior to our leaving date on 01/11/11 meant we’ve been able to explore some fascinating places and learn more about the world, and ourselves, than we could have ever imagined. Since then we’ve visited the USA, the Caribbean, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Vietnam, Cambodia, United Arab Emirates, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. We’ve both become Advanced Divers and fallen in love with life by the sea; surfing, kite-surfing, snorkeling, swimming, sunbathing and of course, scuba diving. We’re currently soaking up the sun and perfecting our surfing skills in Bali. We always travel slowly, often spending time living and working in each country, so we usually have at least a tip or two to offer! – Beth & Gaz, Enjoy the Journey @etjourney

Positive World Travel was created by us-couple Anthony Milotic and Elise Reeks. We are two Australians who worked hard at saving for 3 years and while these years of saving were to be for a house, in the end, we decided rather than a mortgage we wanted use that money to travel the world! So thats what we did! We quit our jobs, packed and sold many of our belongings and started our indefinite travels around the world. Anthony is a Chef by trade and I am a Primary School Teacher and we both strongly believe that traveling allows us to not only explore these passions further but to discover new ones too. We have both always loved to travel and have been overseas many times before we met one another, so when we travel together it is always a great adventure! We love to learn about the world, how others live their lives, find people and places difference to our own, enjoy these experiences, then take it all and live the most positive life we can! – Anthony & Elise, Positive World Travel @positivetravel

There can’t be two opinions on love for travel. Everyone agrees to agree and waits for an opportunity. And there are a few good things about blogging as well. For instance, no disappointments when an editor of a magazine rejects a piece. Or there is no restriction to write a story in 600 words. And certainly one can be enough of a narcissist with as many photographs of oneself. So here we are. Bitten by the travel bug many years back, but have been traveling only since 2004, after coming to Mumbai. With treks, road trips, back-pack trips and adventure camps we have utilised almost all our weekends. We have been doing ‘photo-blogging’ – blogs with only photographs from each of our trips. The links can be found elsewhere in this blog. – Unny & Bindhu, Travel With A Couple

Hi! We are Dina and Ryan. We are backpackers. We have been on the road since April 2009, and we have hit more than 20 countries. We are fascinated by the differences between places that we’ve been. The traditions, the norms, and the behavior. We love to see the new things that are not usually found from where we are, like the remnants of ancient civilizations for example.Us, the two backpacks, and the clothes that we are wearing, that’s all what we have, and we certainly enjoy this simplicity. Some people ask, when will be the end of our journey? When are we going to settle? Our answer is, we don’t know yet. The world is a big place to explore, who knows what happen in the future. We will continue to explore while it’s possible. – Dina & Ryan, Vagabond Quest @vagabondquest
Travelling is something that we are both very passionate about and we have built our lives around it, travelling full time since 2009. We love having adventures, getting off the beaten track and spending time in places rather than doing whistle stop tours. Travelling as a couple, we get to share all these amazing experiences with each other such as trekking for 23 days in Nepal, diving World War 2 wrecks in the Philippines, visiting remote tribes in West Timor, teaching English in South Korea, spending 6 months backpacking through India and climbing volcanos in Sumatra. On our website, Wandering On, we offer travel tips and guides and do our best to share our travel experiences through stories, photos and videos. We hope to inspire others to get out there and see some of what this amazing world has to offer. – Brian & Noelle, Wandering On @wanderingon_bn
We embarked on our second big adventure soon after our wedding–we quit our jobs as a marketing copywriter and a high school science teacher, put our wedding gifts in storage, left our home in Seattle and moved to South Korea to teach English. We spent a year learning Korean, trying new foods, using a lot of make-shift sign language and exploring as much of Korea as we could squeeze in! After our contracts in Korea ended, we took off on a nearly three-month adventure through Southeast Asia–eating street food, wandering through temples, and sunning ourselves on impossibly beautiful beaches. Now we’re back in the USA and seeking out travel and adventure in our own country. We’re not sure where our wanderlust will take us next, but we can’t wait to find out. We hope you enjoy walking about the world with us! – Matt & Andrea, World Walk About @andreasherrodd
