My mom, being the wise wise Hispanic mother that she is, always said you reaaaaaally got to know someone when you traveled with them. There is just something about travel that reveals true colors of both your companions and yourself. Traveling as a married couple isn’t always sunshine and rainbows; just like a marriage it is full of ups and downs, moments you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else with anyone else and moments you would rather sulk in a museum alone because you are annoyed. Marriage isn’t perfect and neither is traveling when you are married. But there are important lessons to be learned. And it seems that each trip no matter how brief or long, Tim and I learn something new about our relationship and each other.
