I changed my husband’s travel style! His family only ever went to Disney for vacation and never camped. I grew up travelling all over and doing different things every time, sometimes camping. Since we’ve been together we’ve gone on several camping trips plus visited two other continents and gone on a cruise. He got the travel bug big time and now he loves doing this stuff as much as I do!

Well, considering I never had been anywhere out of the U.S. (except Carribean/Mexico), the fact that we got married in India last November certainly changed my travel style. 🙂

We both LOVE the beach and go every summer a few times to the shore for long weekends. Other than that, nothing new or different.

My family spends a few weeks in SC every summer (going next week! woohoo!), while my SO doesn’t have any travel traditions but tends to go on bigger, more elaborate trips. We haven’t changed our travel styles so much as we take advantage of both–lazy weeks at the beach plus day trips to Charleston, nonstop trips to Vegas, etc. No need for compromise here. 😉

He likes to stay in nicer places than I normally would.. but that’s about it.  I’d be more apt to just pick a destination and then figure out cheap lodging. he prefers to have more amenities like our own home. We both have always found time to get away and enjoy, which is nice. He’s a hard worker, but you can’t live to work – we make travel a priority. Some of our friends haven’t vacationed since their honeymoon and it makes me so so sad for them! Work work work work.

Not really.

I grew up road tripping & doing the tourist things (i.e.: going to museums or points of interest, like Parliament in Ottawa).

He grew up road tripping with the occasional jet set to Mexico (think all inclusive).

I like to go on adventure type outings, like rock climbing, cliff diving, white water rafting, whereas he really likes to relax when on vacation.. though  I don’t rule out relaxing & doing beachy or resort type activities either.

He likes to do the cultural kick, food, music, arts, history, which I love love as well, so I think we kind of share a lot of travel “style” (interests) and it just works. 🙂

Also, we both grew up camping more often than not on “holiday/vacation” so we both like to do the outdoorsy nature thing.

Before our honeymoon, he’d NEVER been on a nice vacation. He’d only been to Florida like twice for family vacays. So, I made him get a passport, talked him into being more adventurous, and doing things on the island, and I send him teasers of beautiful places to visit.

He’s not adventurous or interested in traveling but i am. Sometimes I like to do things but he doesn’t and I’ve learned to simply enjoy a book on the beach.

He doesn’t think vacations are necessary (probably because he never went!) while i went on vacations 3-4 times a year growing up (Mexico, Palm Springs, Las Vegas, etc) so I’m changing him =]
