If you’ve only ever enjoyed a weekend together and suddenly you’re about to embark on months of traveling, why not start off with a group tour? This way you can break yourself into the trip gently before enjoying coupledom on the open road. Hooking up with family and friends along your route can also help to refuel your relationship.
Don’t over-romanticize the idea of the trip. Be kind to yourself and learn to forgive each other as arguments can and do happen – that’s just a fact of life.
