​Have you ever been in love? Isn’t it an absolutely beautiful feeling!? You feel great and suddenly all your problems in life seem minuscule and manageable.

Love does make the world go round.

And it becomes even more special when you go around the world with the person you love by your side. Even the most mundane places become gorgeous and nothing makes you feel tired anymore. Love and travel are perfectly in sync and only help make each other more meaningful. The key is to keep yourself open to new experiences, because you never know what will bring you closer together.

Here are five reasons why having #Befikre experiences will help your relationship:

1. You get to really know each other

Well yes, you might have known your “better half” for a long time. You might have even been in a relationship for many years; but it’s not until you’ve travelled with them that you get to know what they’re really like. If the experiences are impromptu, they test the character of a person and show you sides to their personality that you might not have seen before.

2. Crazy becomes crazier with your partner-in-crime

Experiencing new places with your loved one is a lot better than doing things alone. Whether it's indulging in an outrageous local tradition, such as running with the bulls in Spain or climbing up a steep mountain, once you realise that your beloved is just as crazy as you are, the experiences will become crazier.

3. You start trusting each other blindly

When you have been completely insane together, that’s when you can start to trust your beloved. Stranger shores bring with them a lot of unpredictability, which only increases when you leave yourself open to trying new things. In order to do all that your heart desires, you need to put some faith in your partner. With time, you will begin to trust that they will have your back in difficult times.

4. You create priceless memories

Isn’t this the most important factor of them all? Your memories together will be the foundation of your relationship. When you are travelling with your partner and are completely #Befikre, you have a greater chance of creating unique memories that only the two of you will share.

5. Your love will last a lifetime

Travelling #Befikre with your partner is a sure-shot way of forging an unbreakable bond. So follow my advice: get to “know” your partner well, go “crazy” with them without thinking about the consequences, place your utmost “trust” in them and create “priceless memories” to last a lifetime and a half.

Mastercard’s #Befikre Contest

Understanding this universal rudimentary emotion, Mastercard invites you to share your #Befikre travel stories.
