I feel like every female blogger who loves travelling has a travel loving significant other by her side. It makes me kind of jealous and I wonder what life would be like with a husband who dreamed or planned trips like I do. Or one who doesn't ask how much that will cost when I tell him I want to go somewhere. I wonder how many adventures we would go on if he loved planning and travelling as much as I do?
Don't get me wrong, KC doesn't dislike travel, he's just indifferent. KC enjoys travelling while we are actually travelling (though not for too long), he just doesn't enjoy paying for it.. or planning it. Which sucks because my favourite part is the planning and talking about it part!
Even though it's not his favourite thing in the world to do and it wouldn't be his first choice (he'd rather have the money sitting in the bank) he still does it. He still lets me plan and spend our money on travelling. They say marriage is all about compromise, but I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say there is very little compromise in my marriage - I pretty much get my way every time (and I don't mean that in an evil way). He understands he married a traveller and even though we aren't road tripping or jetting off places every month, we still do plenty of travelling and he just goes along with it all. I'm pretty lucky. He's my favourite travel buddy and I am so thankful for him and how go with the flow he is.
Our very first 'date' was a (short) roadtrip to Cincy for a baseball game.
Then in November of that year, we went on a short road trip to Indy for a football game, and then we went on a much longer drive to a freezing Green Bay to watch the Cowboys lose spectacularly.
I tagged along and met them in London for a very short trip.
After London, we didn't travel again until we met up in Disney in 2011.
And after that we didn't travel until a roadtrip to DC.
Although you can't tell from the photos, a lot of our travelling is with another couple, our best friends. They were planning on going to Gatlinburg for Valentines Day and we tagged along and called it a weekend getaway for my birthday.
Our first real trip together (just us!) was Vegas for our Honeymoon.
We have gone on more roadtrips to Illinois to visit KC's family than I can remember.
And of course, our biggest trip to date was going back home and showing KC around my 'hood.
And last, but certainly not least, we ended 2014 with a short trip to NYC.
And now... we are off on our biggest adventure yet! Sure we went to Australia, but I know that like the back of my hand, or like.. you know, one knows their own country. But now we are headed to Europe for a couple of weeks. Paris, Rome and Dublin. Dream come true. I am so excited, and a little bit terrified.
My brother in law is staying in our house - with my husband's guns - while we are gone. Just in case any creeper stalkery people wanted to know. I've asked some lovely ladies to guest post while I'm gone, so hopefully they'll keep you entertained (duh) and I will catch up on all the reading and commenting when I return. You know I'll be blowing up the gram while I'm gone, so be sure to follow along!
Does your significant other like to travel? Any tips for the places I am going?
