Send her a postcard from your first destination!! At least she will know that you're serious.

Did she have a clue that you were thinking of traveling? Did you start dating her after your plan began to form?

I agree with supaw0man, but depending on your girlfriend's response - you may end up handling Dave's way...

If you've gone and booked everything without saying a peep to her, you may be eating a frying pan for supper. But at least you'll heal nicely in time to go away... As for the boss, well - if you're not concerned about coming back to the same job, leaving to travel will be as simpe as leaving for any other reason.

I wouldn't worry about the boss. Generally people I worked with were happy for me and a little envious I was getting to have a great adventure.

The girlfriend, on the other hand, you better be careful with (as the others have hinted).

Break it to her very slowly after you have put a few pints down her and just maybe she will go with ya. you never know.
As for the boss, who cares, its just a job, u can get another when and if you ever get bak.
Good luck mate!

Maybe he doesn't want her to join in the adventure... And the bruises will heal quickly...

Well maybe he has not thought of asking yet? Travelling gets lonely.

yeah, i don't think i would like my girlfriend to join me on my travels

it wouldn't be healthy for any ov us if we fell out half way round the globe

plus i wouldn't be able to cope with her straightening her hair twice a day!!!!
