Today marks 4 years since I drunkenly stumbled into H’s life decked out in my Halloween costume and basically forced him to hang out with me( you can read more about there here). It has been a crazy four years with my Viking, we have done the whole international long distance thing, said tearful goodbyes in airports in three different continents, traveled all over Europe, and our now navigating life in Iceland. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us!
Being an international couple travel has always been a huge part of our relationship. Whether it was traveling to one others home countries or going on trips together, it is a part of our relationship that I love. Traveling with your partner is absolutely amazing. I could go on and on about why you should travel together but I am just going to say, a couple that travels together stays together.
H and I have already made some wonderful travel memories together and I am looking forward to many more. To celebrate our special day here is a look at some of my favorite travel adventures with H.
Our first adventure (and picture) together, headed off to surf camp in Australia. Guess I did get my Australian surfer, just in Viking form.
The first time I visited H in his homeland, heard him speak Icelandic and explored this beautiful country I now call home.
Not every picture can be magazine worthy but that is why I love this photo of us in front of the Colosseum. Almost all our photos from this day are of us squinting our eyes against the bright sunshine. Squinty eyes and all this stop in Rome was one of many during our 5 week Eurotrip and the Colosseum will always remain a favorite visit for me.
Popping bottles on the beaches of Mykonos makes for one fun day with my man. Greece I love you almost as much as I love H.
Oh you know, just doing some couple bonding while bench pressing some trees in the Redwood forest.
Acting like an intellectual couple while browsing the halls of the Louvre. Our visit to the museum is one of my favorite things we did in Paris, a must do for sure.
We are clearly fans of wine and this trip tasting wine in Tuscany was one for the books!
Both of us lived out our inner GOT nerd while visiting Dubrovnik.
Our hike at Landmannalaugar will always be one of my favorite travel moments with H. Exploring a part of H’s country and learning more about where he grew up has been wonderful, and it doesn’t hurt that his homeland is full of stunning landscapes!
I even love our not so glamorous travel moments, like sleeping on the uncomfortable chairs at the airport. These unglamorous moments weren’t so bad with H by my side.
I sure adore this guy and am looking forward to all the adventures our future holds!
