The best way to create a stronger, more intimate bond with your partner is by spending quality time together. When we asked our friends what they would do if money was no object when planning their next vacation, one of them said that she’d take her husband on an adventure-filled road trip across America.

That sounds like something both of us could get behind! The idea of exploring new places while bonding makes this type of travel sound perfect for couples who are looking to grow closer together as individuals or as partners. We hope these random questions have given you some fun ideas about how to spend quality time with each other without having any distractions.
