The Couples Travel Quiz

Couples travel can be a little trickier than you’d imagine. It all depends on your travel personalities, what you want to get out of a holiday or vacation and how patient you are.

So when The Annoyed Thyroid put up this Couples Travel Quiz Tag, I loved reading it so much that I decided to try it out with Mr M. As you’re going to see, we have VERY different outlooks on travel. So he has to make the sacrifice of getting out and about a little more than he’s used to, and I need to tone things down a bit.

Try this out with your partner – it’ll give you a few insights on what you both enjoy doing and allow you to tailor your holidays accordingly.

    1. Hahaha, I struggled to find pics of us together on trips! Maybe that’s something we should work on. Either he’s making a face, or I am, or we both are… Thanks for sharing this one!

    1. I thought you might appreciate that one… I’m not too bad with people, as long as I don’t have to interact too much 😉
