When you travel as a couple things can get hectic.
Where do you want to go next? What are we doing for dinner? The number of decisions you have to make on a daily basis increases tenfold.
When you’re at home you can retreat, go hang out with your friends, just lose yourself in the aspects of daily life, but on the road that’s all stripped away.
Today Jason interviews Heather and I about how we handle taking our relationship on the road. How we deal with decision making, money, and fighting as we travel around the world.
The highs are really high, and the lows can be really low, but we wouldn’t trade it for anything!
What are some of your tips for traveling on the road as a couple?

Very interesting podcast! And funny, too. The personal allowance is a very good idea, we might implement it too. I am curious to know how you categorise your expenses. For example, I assume there are things such as food, accommodation, transport, personal allowance, etc. Now, if for example I want a jar or Nutella (not that that would happen…), and it’s not a need but more of a treat for me… Would you put that in personal allowance or food? And do you have categories inside of personal allowance? It would be cool to see a template to see how you organize your expenses, as I found a template or two online for expense tracking but I don’t think they’re that great. Greetings from Italy!
@Roser- Thanks, and glad you liked it. Yeah, the “what counts as a personal allowance” is the biggest issue that comes up, for sure. We have yet to TRULY figure out an answer, and we disagree a lot about it, but basically we say the allowance is for extra stuff that isn’t a necessity. Usually, this constitutes clothes for Heather and electronics for me.
We’ve never taken out of the personal allowance for food (ex. Heather drinks coffee, I don’t, and I don’t make her use her allowance for Starbucks), but of course, you can do however you think works. But generally, it’s things like clothing, electronics, souvenirs, etc.
HEY YOU PRACTICAL ROMANTIC.
I HAVE THE SAME PROIBLEM WITH MY WIFE. AS IF TAKING EHR ON A TRIP AROUND THE WORLD IS NOT ROMANTIC ENOUGH
HEY SMALLS! I think Trav owes you another trip to Paris for a NEW LV bag for being too lazy to call you by your name. lol
@Tanya- Another LV? Haha, we’ll be broke in no time! I’m sure Smalls would agree with you though.
Was shocked to hear you’re in OCNJ! That’s my temporary home base right now while being nomadic, too. Hope you’re enjoying–it’s fantastic in the winter (when it’s not all rainy like it’s been this week!)
Any chance you will get your podcasts onto Google Play Store?
@Mason Roberts- If you have Android, you can get it on the Stitcher Radio app and listen to it that way. If you know a way for me to get it on the Google Play store, I’m all ears, but I just searched for answers and don’t see anything about submitting my podcast to Google Play.
