Travel With Your Guy Without Killing Each Other: Tips from ‘Man, Woman, Wild’

The hosts of the Discovery Channel show ‘Man, Woman, Wild’ offer tips on how to travel with your significant other without killing each other– metaphorically OR literally!

-Ruth England and Mykel Hawke

Man Woman Wild

They’ve been to Botswana and the Amazon, eaten boa constrictors as a lunchtime meal, and even had to resort to desperate measures for fluids in the desert- drinking one’s own pee (believe it or not, it’s safer to do than it sounds!). Mykel Hawke and Ruth England, stars of the Discovery Channel series Man, Woman, Wild, take exploring the great outdoors to a whole new level. And while their version of travelling isn’t exactly what all lovebirds have in mind for a weekend getaway, they still have plenty of savvy travel tips that will benefit all duos no matter where they roam. Here they are in their own words!

1) Do Your Research

Always research where you’re going to travel, together. If you plan as a couple, you’ll both be able to express in advance what you’re looking to get out of the trip. This preparation means you’ll know ahead of time where you’ll need to compromise and what your partner is most looking forward to.

• If you’re going to an exotic locale, be sure to study weather, diseases and any potential dangers – just so you don’t have any unpleasant surprises!

• Know the roads, bodies of water and alternate routes so you can get yourself to safety if need be.

2) Adventure Strengthens Relationships

Sometimes the least populated areas can make for the most memorable trips. Outdoor adventures where couples are out of their element are great opportunities for strengthening a relationship. Our Man, Woman, Wild adventures have given us many opportunities to REALLY get to know each other better than any ordinary vacation would ever do.

3) Avoid Being Snappy

Don’t be afraid to let strained words go without sharp reply. Regardless of what your roles are in the home, both partners should take turns planning and leading. Even though Mykel is the trained survival expert, there were plenty of times where I (Ruth) had life-saving advice that really helped our circumstances. We each have our own knowledge and experiences that got us through some tough times when we worked together. Especially in adventurous travel, it’s important to strike a balance.

  1. Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.
