Together, they have accumulated more than 20 passport stamps.  They’ve been all over the place, including, Kenya, Sweden, Zambia, Italy, Grenada, and Denmark. You name it, they’ve probably been there.

In an interview with Travel Noire, the Holders discuss some of their favorite destinations abroad and why they love traveling together.

Travel Noire: What’s your favorite country so far and why?

The Holders: We have too many favorite countries together. But at the top of the list are Italy, South Africa, Grenada, Jamaica and Seychelles. 

TN: What’s the best part about traveling together?

The Holders: We both work very demanding jobs and when we travel, we get to truly spend quality time and relax. We get along as best friends first, so we laugh and play all day long, learn together, dance together, try new things and being adventurous together. Wouldn’t trade it for anything.

TN: What advice would you give traveling couples?

The Holders: Really take into account your partner’s interest when planning a trip. You can be a great couple but like very different types of travel at the same time, and that’s ok. Take the time to learn one another and find your balance.
