Sure, much of the point of traveling with your honey is spending time together—but a little absence does make your heart grow fonder, even on a couples vacation. When my husband and I travel together, we give each other space to do a few things apart. For example, I might take longer to wander through a town’s boutique stores while he heads back to our B&B, as we did recently in Astoria, Oregon; or I might take an extra-long bath while he goes disc golfing at a nearby park.
Our 10 years of happy marriage is definitely strengthened by encouraging each other’s interests and hobbies—and not insisting we spend every waking moment together.
