    No matter how long you’ve been in a relationship, you don’t really know a person until you’ve travelled with them. A journey together can take you through all ups and downs, thicks and thins, and make the bond last forever because we truly believe that people who trip together, stick together. Maybe exploring new places with your SO is what leads to exploring each other while on a journey, and spending 24/7 with one another in an unknown territory help you find your perfect place. On that not, we recommend The Perfect Us by Durjoy Dutta, a great read you can add to your travel essentials. The narrative is all about Avantika and Deb, who’ve been in a relationship for 10 years and are still in the quest of the their perfect happy place.

    So we say, take some time out of the regular hustle bustle of your life and check out these destinations that will make you fall in love all over again.

    Dublin, Ireland

    Fine literature and drinking, that’s most of everything to this gorg city, rich in heritage for travellers to soak up.

    Marrakech, Morocco

    This place will make you feel like a royalty without paying the price for it. This former imperial city still has the remnants of its luxury with maze-like alleys that offer souks of traditional textiles, pottery and jewellery. Not to be missed are the ethereal palaces, gardens and mosques. This is a must visit destination with your partner because chances are that you will manage to get lost at least once in those alleys, tired, hungry, annoyed yet walking next to each other looking for the right path. This place will find you both having a stupid argument and laughing over it later.

    While Mykonos and Santorini are trending at par these days, the latter is more suited as a couple destination while the former is more of a party place. The picturesque white hillside villages with crystal blue water makes for a dreamy vacation. We believe that a key part of travelling with your SO is to be able to try new and different things which you usually miss out on in your regular life back home and Santorini is going to give you that much needed escape.
