100 word fiction: Hunger for travel

“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.

    • 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.

  1. 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.

    • 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.

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

  2. 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.

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