In today’s world, social media has a strong presence. People are constantly bombarded with news, videos, and opinions of other people. So many times I have seen on social media outlets the benefits of solo traveling and the amazing experience you will receive. Although this may be true, I am here to tell you that moving abroad and traveling around the world is not only for single people and that the couples can do it too!
Many believe that moving/traveling abroad will be this soul searching experience and you will be able to get in touch with your inner self and find out your true calling in life. This may be the case, but you can also achieve those same goals with your partner (or friend) by your side. Some may say that traveling alone will give you a sense of achievement and independence, but I really do believe that I was able to accomplish those goals even with my partner by my side.

As college graduation drew near, I became increasingly certain that my next move would be one that would take me abroad. Never having left North America, I felt like it was my only option: The time was ripe to see the world by living in a different country. Coincidentally, my significant other (SO) had highly similar goals, and we both zeroed in on teaching English abroad as the best way to fulfill our dreams. A few months after graduation, I moved home to save as much money as possible, and my significant other did the same.
