So you're moving overseas
You've made your plans and you're ready to hit the road. Chances are your spirits are high and you are excited about the opporunity to see the world together. You may be setting out on a nomadic lifestyle, an overseas working holiday, or being moved for work.
Regardless of the reason, travelling as a couple is a great opportunity to get to know eachother better and to share new and exciting experiences together. Unlike a holiday where you are just enjoying the sites, a longer holiday can often involve stresses such as work, missing family back at home and the cultural differences involved in daily interactions.
Whilst these may seem fun and exciting at first, there will be moments when one or both of you are a little down and finding life away from home challenging. This can be tough if you're a travelling twosome, particularly if you don't have a new network of friends or contacts in your current location. If care isn't taken, these stresses can accumulate and weaken, rather than strengthen your bond.
But never fear, these useful tips will help keep your relationship on track!
