Love being the rarest and the most longed-for abstract noun, there is a paramount need to preserve and nurture it with the ticking of the clock. Love itself is healthy, strong and passionate. And no relationship brimming with love is less beautiful and exciting. BUT overtime it is good and devouring to add some honey to your whiskey.



“Couples who spend more time traveling together enjoy a more ignited relationship than those who don’t.” This has proved right in the case of umpteen number of couples and in fact travel has strengthened their relationships like nothing else could. Having been fed with the experiences on both the sides of the line, I honestly believe that travel is the MAGIC BEANS that has nurtured our strong relationship into the strongest and most charming. Earlier, before we chose travel, our rendezvous overtime seemed to become less lively. The regular weekend destinations turned our dates into a bizarre and the monotony muddled our souls. This only led to more forced eloquent speeches and humour. But we did not take long to realize the need to irrigate our parched love life. We bustled into various activities like photoshoots, outdoor adventures, trying new food, indoor games, music, long drives etc. But then we realized, putting all these tasks together- TRAVEL, nurtured us to the best.

Here are a few beautiful advantages that couples who are travellers enjoy.

Once you start travelling with your better half every weekend and date becomes  more adventurous and venturesome. As Pinterest quotes “Lose your way to find your soul”. Travel enriches your souls and makes you animated and zippy-zappy. Unlike the bizarre dates in monotonous and unexciting malls and theatres, the deep jungles, shallow brooks and beautiful mountains will keep you love birds bright-eyed and bushy tailed. Outdoor adventures like trekking, paragliding, jungle safaris, bungee jumping, sky diving, fishing, swimming, rafting, kayaking blah blah blah gives you an adrenaline rush and you will with no doubts grin from ear to ear through this entire date. Romance in the tents or open deserts gazing at stars by the warmth of the bonfire with some lovely music defeats the rendezvous at your regular soulless buildings.


Travel reveals more of yourselves to each other. Couples who travel enjoy the privilege of sharing more of themselves with each other and understanding and analysing themselves.

Travel teaches you patience. And at the end of every great voyage you understand more about your better half and also reveal more about yourself. You become more patient towards each other and misunderstandings and tears seem far off your life.


We could “before travel days” be easily categorised as spendthrift couples. The only factor that kept us alive was some opulent shopping, coffee dates in lavish bistros and dinner dates at extravagant restaurants. But when we chose travel, we realized with no time that  it kept us vehemently alive and the expensive shopping dates were no close to the way travel made us feel. We slowly learned to save money.


We do shop occasionally some good clothes and shoes but not carelessly. We make sure we set aside the lion’s share of our pocket money and our time to time earnings for our travel expenses. It is always good to be a little calculative. Travel helps you learn to spend less and cut off some unwanted shopping and save more for future and surprisingly it doesn’t seem a difficult task at all. The craving to travel more and tick  destinations off your bucket list only makes you want to save up more for the next time.

When you travel you simultaneously become great planners. You begin with planning beautiful and exciting travel dates for yourself and eventually help other” new to travel couples” to plan their voyage. Over time you begin to plan more productive and pocket friendly trips and your travel experiences may even qualify you as a professional travel planner. Thus  you can enjoy the privilege of “Making your passion your job.”

If you are a shy couple and don’t talk or laugh much with new people, then travel is a choice you must make at least once in a while. New anonymous towns and cities introduce you to new cheery people. It helps you become amiable and develop cordial relationships with the rest of the society. However it is important to be careful before you trust new people. And travel this ways helps you understand human behaviours and stay vigilant. It also introduces the travellers to new food and new culture. You get to relish the traditional plates of every new place you visit.

However this does not imply that we do not enjoy luxury. Travel does not mean total aversion to  grandeur. We always make sure we go on a luxury travel one in two months. The fatter your budget the luxurious your trip will be. This may include luxury suite room stays with beautiful views, palatable cuisine, must try adventures etc. We however spend our luxury travels usually doing nothing but catching up with some movies, reading a lot, relishing some great food and cuddling a lot.




Travel has always helped us with great memories and each time we return back from a trip we proclaim “Ohh mahn! This was the best!” and immediately get back to our job, planning the next visit to a new place. Travel also definitely amuses photographers. And when you are a “photographer couple” like us it becomes a huge bar of candy for you. You can spend time photographing new people and new emotions and also capture beautiful pictures of yourselves wallowing in your dream destinations. ALERT! MEANWHILE  PAY NO HEED TO THE EVIL EYE.




The most important lesson that travel imparts in us is to face challenges and overcome hardships as we proceed with your dreams. Although travel is fun and fills us with peace and fulfilment, it is not a shortcut to happiness. The challenges and hardships never fade away from our paths but eventually we, the travellers learn to dust them off our shoulders with ease.

If you have not yet decided on a good gift for your valentine, this Valentine’s Day present your better half with a trip to the dream destination that you share. Make memories through beautiful experiences and forget not to cuddle a lot more than now!!






Fortunate is one, whose liking, interest, hobby, goals- both short and long time, profession, recreation, recuperation, yearning and purpose is all the same. The world has lately illuminated us gleefully with the old wise words “Love what you do and do what you love.” But making your passion and liking the sole purpose of life is a different thing. And when you are all worn out and exhausted and your body and soul snivel to recline, the recuperation you choose  is again your job, passion and liking, all being the same. Doesn’t that sound tuneful to the ears? And I, who for a long time busily awed the lives of these fortunate, lately, without much scepticism blithely discovered myself to be one among these fortunates I envied. I tag myself, a travel junkie, a wanderlust or any word that portrays my soul’s ever longing for new travels.


      Why do I nomer myself a “travel junkie”??? Is that cause I’ve explored most parts of the hidden world.? NO!!!! In fact I’ve explored only a handful of places. But travel excites me. Any time I get an off from my jog-trotty life, the recuperation my body and heart immediately chooses is TRAVEL. Nothing can be more stirring to a brain that spends days, apprehending on ” A visit to where can make the week astounding??”. New places, new air, new folks, new food and new skies is all the child and woman in me squalls for. Travel excites me in the same way as a taffy world would do with a kid. Nothing satisfies me like exploring new places everywhere I go. In fact, travel is the only thing I never grow tired of. When it comes to travel, long walks, harsh sun, dirty roads, uncomfortable beds and unclean bathrooms never bother me. As long as I’m  travelling, I’m as happy as a clan. And if you are a travel junkie as well, then here are a few interesting , easily mispronounced, hard to say “TRAVEL WORDS ‘.



The term “Wanderlust” originates from the German words wandern meaning “to hike” and lust meaning “great desire”. In modern German, the use of the word Wanderlust is less common and it has been replaced by Fernweh, literally meaning “crave for travel”. 




The word junkie means “an addict or enthusiast of something”. Hence a travel junkie in other words is a “Travel Addict”.

This is one cute sounding word I love adding into my paragraphs when I put my travel experiences in writing, coddiwomple. Coddiwomple is to travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination. This makes it obvious, why I’ve named my blog “CODDIWOMPLE”, cause that’s what I do.

Fernweh is a German word meaning “Far sickness”, the term “fern” meaning “far” and the term “weh” meaning “pain”. Fernweh is an ache for distant places and a crave for travel,  stronger than wanderlust.

The new word resfeber served to our literary plates from the Swedish origin describes the restless race of the traveller’s heart when he is about to embark on a new adventurous travel, when anxiety and anticipation are entangled together. And this is the best kind of anxiety I ever get filled with, the adrenaline rush as I even plan on my new trip.




A wayfarer is a person who travels and explores new places, on foot. First recorded in 1400- 50, wayfarer is from the late Middle English word “weyfarere”,  “wey” meaning “way” and the term “faren” meaning “to go on a journey”.




A solivagant is a lone wanderer characterised by rambling alone and solitary wandering. The term solivagant is derived from the Latin word “solivagus”, the term “solus” meaning “alone” and the term “vagans” meaning “wandering”.

According to psychiatry, ecdemomania is a morbid impulse or obsession to travel or wander around. The mania instigates a compulsive wandering away from home. It is derived from a Greek word “ecdemo” meaning “wandering away from home”.

A peripatetic is a person who travels from place and place, a nomad. The word peripatetic is derived from the Greek word “peripatetikos” and the Old French word “peripatetique” meaning “walking up and down”.




A nemophilist is a person who is fond of forests or woods, a haunter of the woods. It is derived from the Greek word “nemos” meaning “wood” and “philos” meaning “loving”.

These travel words can make your travelogues rich and flamboyant and your travels can make your life variegated and prismatic. Travel can help you escape the scuffles of life. Make a wayfarer, Coddiwomple and resfeber places to refill the pockets of life. If you ever desire to fall sick, then desire to be affected by ecdemomania!!!!!
