The Nomadic Boys share their tips on how to travel together as a gay couple
We caught up with the Nomadic Boys to talk about the highs and lows of being a gay travel power-couple.
Travelling together is one of the big tests of any relationship - do you have any hints or tips for couples on how help your relationship survive any travel dramas?
This is the ultimate test of a relationship. We’ve sadly seen many many couples who haven’t survived a big trip, and others that have flourished. Travelling together has certainly made our relationship far more intense. We learnt a lot more about each other’s personalities, but in a good way, which has brought us very close. We can’t imagine living without each other.
The biggest tip we can give is to appreciate the need for ‘me’ time every so often, and allow for this. Also, communication about everything is key. We feel we can talk to each other about anything, which helps massively.
When travel starts to become a possibility again, where would you recommend for a romantic mini-break?
If you’re Europe-based, then one of the Baltic states like Riga or Tallinn is perfect for a romantic weekend break. Really easy to fly to with the budget airlines, and only a few hours away. They’re gorgeous – like fairy-tale cities, especially during winter-time when covered in a blanket of snow.
If you’re based in Asia, you’ve got discount airlines at your disposal so you can fly almost anywhere for very little money. For us, it’s Bangkok for a romantic weekend mini-break. It’s central enough to most destinations in the region to be no more than a few hours away. We love the food, nightlife, and general atmosphere of the city.
If you’re based in the US, then it would have to be New York, or the Keys in Florida for sunshine.
