We realized that we work hard to make our travel enjoyable. Travel can be very stressful at the best of times. Traveling as a couple can significantly increase the anxiety, but only if you allow it. If you are in any doubt about this, just tune in to an episode of Amazing Race and watch how the strongest couples completely melt down, often over what appears to be a very minor issue. We have learned, largely through trial and error, that there are many little things we do to reduce the stress of travel. Learn from our mistakes ... it will make your travel much better.

About John & JoAnn
John & JoAnn Girard
We have traveled together to more than 70 countries, all 50 US states and all 10 Canadian provinces. After two decades of traveling as a couple, we had an epiphany, as much as we love travel, we really only enjoy it when we can share the adventure. Our time together - in planes, trains, cars, RVs, ships and even on camels - is our most enjoyable time together. Well maybe the camel piece is a stretch, but it is a good story.
