How to bond with your partner on one bus trip

 In Bus Travel

It only takes one bus trip to set the sparks flying between you and your partner. Don’t believe us? Well, think about it for a moment. Picture yourself and your partner driving in a car for six hours on end, the tension, the stress of having to reach your destination safely, no friendly chit chat, nothing. Seems pretty unromantic to us.

Now, if you two were on a bus, sitting back and enjoying the passing scenery, you’d have plenty of opportunity to reconnect and bond.

Here are a few ideas you can explore to reconnect with your loved during a bus trip.

Take loads of romantic selfies inside the bus

Without one of you having to drive, both of you are free to take as many romantic selfies as you’d like. Whether you’re taking pouting pics or funny photos, take as many as you can. It is pictures that create the most precious memories.

Take advantage of the long bus trip and play 20 questions

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been with your loved one for years, there’s always something new to discover about one another. Play 20 questions but be sure to make the questions interesting. Steer clear of favourite colour or best movie questions. Remember, you can always make it 25 or 30 questions: the bus trip is quite long.

Play games together on the bus

Stay entertained, laugh more and just enjoy one another’s company. There’s nothing like a fun game to reignite the joy in your relationship. Combine your grey matter and do a cross word puzzle together or teach your significant other how to play poker or blackjack.

Watch a romantic movie together

The great thing about mobile technology is that you can watch a movie whenever and wherever you want. Pick a romantic movie or any movie you’d both enjoy, share a pair of earphones, sit back and relax. Just don’t watch anything too raunchy. 😉

Share a blanket

You know what they say, sharing is caring. If you happen to travel at night, there’s nothing more romantic than sharing a blanket during the bus trip. Cuddle and settle down for the evening without one of you having to stay awake throughout the night. Hold hands and shift off to dreamland together.

Not sure where you would like to go?

Here are a few romantic destinations you can consider:

Visit the extraordinary wineries in Stellenbosch

Learn to surf together in Jeffrey’s Bay

Take long romantic walks on the Golden Mile in Durban

Go on a romantic holiday to Mozambique

Go on a romantic safari or take breath taking photos of the waterfalls in Phalaborwa   

Go on a Table Mountain cable car ride in Cape Town


Intrigued? We agree, going on a bus trip is just so much better. We have various routes available. So, pick a romantic destination, book your Citiliner bus tickets and enjoy the trip together. It’s not so much about the destination but rather about the journey.
