Weaving thoughts into words

100 word fiction: Hunger for travel

PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

“You’ve got the moxie to flock to a crowded market in a city you’ve no idea about. Being how whimsical you are, sometimes I wonder if you would disappear without telling me only to reappear later.”

Ronald and Rochelle had travelled to South East Asia for a trip of a lifetime. While they commonly shared the love for travel, the differences began thereafter. While Ronald liked holidays to be laidback and loved staying away from crowds, Rochelle liked to explore as much as she could.

For her travelling and exploring was like a contest which she always needed to win.

  1. I am more like Rochelle. Very good story.

  2. Can identify.
    We must make the most of our time when we are travelling!
    Explore & do lots more 🙂
    Here is my story- The Red T-Shirt

      It’s definitely important to explore as much as one can. But when travelling with someone else, I guess its also important to be receptive to what the other person likes as well. Otherwise things can go awry quite quickly.

  3. I love the last line. That tells us so much about her character

  4. I’m with Rochelle here. Been there, did that. 🙂

    • transitionofthoughts

      Oh yes, so many of us are like her, ain’t it? 😀

  5. A good look at the travelling mind. Well done.

  6. There’s nothing worse than relaxing on holiday. I usually need a break when I get home! So much to experience, so much to see! Nice one .

    My story!

    • transitionofthoughts

      Oh holidays are definitely a great chance to see and experience so much :).

  7. Yes, the last line says it all. Enjoyable read!

  8. A good balance between the two is ideal, but unfortunately when you’re “trapped” with someone on vacation and have polar opposite modus operandi, it can become torture.

    • transitionofthoughts

      Oh yes, when both aren’t ready to give each other a bit of space and compromise a bit for the sake of each other’s happiness, it can only end in disaster.

  9. Nice slice of life. And you taught me a new word – I’d never come across ‘moxie’ before!

    • transitionofthoughts

      Thank you :). Oh yes, even I learnt this word recently. Pretty cool :D.

  10. Well told tale. Sounds as though he is a little reticent of crowds and fears for her safety.

    • transitionofthoughts

      Thanks Michael :). Oh yes he is. And Rochelle herself never liked to back down whenever it came to anything related to travel.

  11. Oh my, sounds like a recipe for a disaster. It’s too bad she’s not willing to compromise and give a little for both their happiness. Well done!

    • transitionofthoughts

      Yeah a think a little bit of compromise from both sides wouldn’t hurt anyone.

  12. So true of many couples. I love relaxing at the shore. Terry wants to go DO something–anything that doesn’t involve baking in the sun :). We’ve learned to compromise so we both go home feeling rested.

    • transitionofthoughts

      Ahh that’s awesome. Yeah I think a bit of this and a bit should do. Everybody stays happy this way :).
