Me and my Fiance found it hard together for 5 months travelling at many times but it helped us grow more solid as we spent some of the best times in our life travelling together which i find now makes us almost married by the mind more than before we travelled ,

- it will make you or break you

ah allways wondered what arguments we would face as with many relationships would suppose it would be money. but it must be awesome to see so many sights with the person you love.

Jon is right - travelling as a couple will make or break you. I went travelling for a year with my boyfriend in 2005 (we've been going out for almost 8 years) and it definately brought us closer than we'd ever been before. We'd been on one two week holiday together before and had a great time so there were no worries for going away together. We never actually argued about money - I don't think we argued that much really, probably less than being at home. We mainly argued when we were driving cause I drove and he was in charge of the music and kept playing thrash metal Anyway, i'd recommend it if you have a good relationship already and if it doesn't work out then it's probably not meant to be ;)

yeah music is another killer in a relationship. we are still in the planning and saving stage. but everything is going brilliant i really admire you guys for the places you have been, anyone got any tips on places to go in the uk or eu as we wanna go far and wide when we do the big one but still wanna see all the bits in eu
many thanks adam

My girlf and i have been away for six months now and are half way through our trip. Yeah, we have had some sketchy moments and at times we have had some incredible arguments but we are still together! I think what you need to do is spend time apart from each other when you can and if you feel an argument brewing, take some time out and wander off on your own. We spent 9 weeks travelling in New Zealand and spent every day together and we hated the sight of each other after a while but its made us stronger and i wouldnt dream of finishing my trip without her.

Have fun
