Re: Adventures with Spouse
Hubs' idea, that I loved the sound of, was for us to take it in turns to plan and book a trip, then simply tell the other when it will be and what type of weather to pack for. Could be a simple, local weekend away or something further from home. Well, I eagerly said I'd book the first one. He is hanging for a vacation. I told him I'd have it covered.
I have a destination in mind. This is a place he's been wanting to go. I'm excited about it too. What I'm finding though, is how much we'd normally share together about where we'd be going and what we'd be doing. I'm currently feeling in two minds as the excitement leading up to the trip is part of the experience shared! I'm realizing that I'll not only need to have a good (enough) understanding of the culture for both of us but I'm also considering taking a beginners language class to get us by... which feels strange when we'd normally do this together.
Still, I'm excited at the thought of pulling it off for us and willing to give it a try and see how it feels planning it solo. He's normally the one that researches everything in detail, whereas I'm more the one to wing-it, but I think for this trip I owe it to us to be more prepared than is my usual style. It's had me wondering if I'm normally able to wing-it because in the back of my mind, I know he'll have other details covered if needed. It's an interesting mini-experiment!
