Hey! We are Michael and Alex. In 2015 we launched Couple's Coordinates (yes, like GPS coordinates - we aren't "coordinating" anything) to inspire couples to travel and pursue a life that is filled with more than office jobs and white picket fences. Solo traveler? Don't worry, our travel tips are relevant for you as well...maybe just skip the honeymoon guides and romantic getaways. Here on our site, you'll find travel blogs with travel tips and funny anecdotes, travel resources, and photography from around the world. For exclusive access to insider travel tips and guides that aren't published on the blog, giveaways, and monthly updates, subscribe to our newsletter.

    1. FUEL YOUR WANDERLUST

    The first obvious step in planning a trip is determining which destinations you'll visit. Before we quit our jobs and embarked on a never-ending honeymoon, we fueled our wanderlust with travel photography as well as some of our favorite travel blogs and books. We have traveled to 35+ countries and our blog includes advice and photos from most of these destinations. If you're looking for inspiration and detailed travel advice, you've come to the right place. Our blogs and travel resources will help you plan your bucket list whether you're planning to travel with your partner, family & friends, or solo!
     

    2. PLAN AND BOOK YOUR TRIP

    Everyone travels and plans in a quasi-unique way. However, if you haven't traveled extensively or you've made costly mistakes when booking travel and planning trips, follow our system to ensure efficient planning.

    1. DETERMINE YOUR DESTINATION

    2. BOOK YOUR FLIGHT WITH SKYSCANNER

    3. SEARCH FOR AND BOOK ACCOMMODATION WITH AIRBNB

    4. PURCHASE TRAVEL INSURANCE FROM WORLD NOMADS

    5. BOOK TOURS WITH VIATOR OR WALKS OF ITALY

    3. SHOP FOR TRAVEL GEAR

    Over the years we have tried dozens of products and have determined what luggage, backpacks, travel accessories, and camera gear we liked best. We NEVER accept a partnership offer for a brand that we do not actively use and love. We do not promote products for paid collaborations and partnerships unless we actually believe these are the best products or services on the market.

    4. TRAVEL TIPS

    More important than anything is that you have FUN. Travel is about exploring new places around the world while you metaphorically explore new places within your heart and soul. If you travel with an open mind and are open to experiencing new cultures, new foods, and new ways of life, then you can't travel "wrong." Over the years we have made a lot of mistakes, but we always made those mistakes with a humble heart. Hopefully, our travel tips will help you mitigate making the same mistakes.
