Hi There!

I am new to the site so be gentle!!!

At present, my boyfriend is unsure of whether we are 'right' to go travelling together...

We are relatievley different but we usually just deal with it... he drinks a lot, i am ALWAYS sick when i drink (obv poses a problem), he is a live wire, i sometimes like to just have an hours peace haha!

I dont think it would be an issue travelling, however, he does.


Has anybody ever done things like a few weeks together, one a part etc?

Or maybe has anybody experience splitting up whilst travelling?

could be unbearable. go travel on your own if he doesn't want to go. you'lll probaly enjoy tens times more. plus we will have one less "dude and babe" couple touring the word. lol.

peace

Hello,

I'm going travelling with my boyfriend next year. We are both really different too - i'm like you, i always get sick when im drunk - where as he can drink loads & only have a headache.

We've been together 4 years tho and not had any major rows so i think we will be ok.

I think we will try and have days to ourselves and stuff while we are away and not spend everysingle second together.

Where you travelling?x

I cant see how going with your boyfriend is any different to going with a best mate - you still have the same pro's and con's! x

You could always go in opposite directions and meet up on the other side of the world - then just take it from there.

edit: ...that's assuming he wants to travel at all? You didn't actually say.

I'm of exactly the same mind set :)

To be honest i think he wants to go with me, just afraid we would ruin the trip if we argued/split up... I would think there would be arguements though
