I've heard stories about friends having to change their life styles after they are married. Some have to cut on times to hangout and some others have to stop traveling because their spouses dislike the idea of traveling. As a single travel enthusiast, I find those stories a bit disheartening. But here are three couples who shares passion for globetrotting with their spouses and blog about it.

Indonesian couple Jeff and Diana, who were married in 2004, live by Dalai Lama's saying:"Once a year, go someplace you've never been before." They have been traveling to Asia (China, Macau, Hong Kong), Australia and Europe (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Slovakia and Switzerland) as well as visiting the local tourism destinations. In Bahasa.

Dua Ransel, which means Two Backpacks, chronicles the journey of Surabaya-born Dina and her Canadian husband Ryan going across the globe with only two backpacks. In 2009, they sold their stuffs and embarked on what was planned to be a one-year trip. But then, they changed their minds. They called themselves permanent travelers, nomads or even vagabonds. In Bahasa and English.

American couple Julia and Yuriy kicked off their marriage life by taking a six-month honeymoon across the world. The couple, who work as photographers, also visited Indonesia during those six months. Their latest trip was to Iceland! *nosebleed* In English.

Have a lovely Monday!
