You're totally ready! 

The two of you make a great team, and traveling together should be a wonderful experience! It's likely you've already taken a few trips as a couple. Now a longer-term, bigger trip could be wonderful.

You know what makes the other person tick, you've handled some challenges together, and you are ready to make beautiful memories across the world. Go plan your next romantic getaway!

Go ahead and book a short trip together!

You might not be ready for a round-the-world jaunt, but you and your partner should certainly give a quick weekend getaway a try. This is the perfect opportunity to test the waters of couples travel and see how you do on a short vacation together. If you want to challenge yourselves a little more, try for a road trip or a trip somewhere where you don't speak the language.

Spend more time together first

Chances are good that you could be great travel buddies. But it sounds like you may need to spend more time together first before going away on a trip. You can stay close to home and seek out new adventures. Try having unique experiences together. If these go well, a successful trip could definitely be in the works!

Travel with caution

Something indicates that you're not ready to travel as a couple with your current partner. This doesn't mean that you'll never make great travel buddies, but it might mean that you have some work to do on your relationship first. A strong, loving relationship can help make traveling together far more fun and stress-free.
