He Said, She Said: Travel Edition

We spend a lot of time apart which means we have a lot of opportunities for conversations. One of my favorite things to do is to gather ice breaker questions (hello Pinterest!). I then send the questions to the husband in batches. There are a lot of times that the questions lead to more in depth discussions. Since it's hard for the husband to blog from sea, I thought I'd send him some questions and use them for a new series known as "He Said, She Said." I hope you enjoy our answers and I invite you to use the questions to start conversations with your significant other!

Here are the questions for our travel edition of "He Said, She Said."

1. How many states have you lived in? 

He said: Three, unless you count a-school (12 weeks) and boot camp (8 weeks)

She said: I've only lived in two states - South Carolina and California.

2. What has been your favorite trip?

He said: Camping in the red woods.

She said: Our trip to Crescent City, CA where we camped in the red woods has been my favorite.

3.What was your least favorite trip?

He said: The haul across the country in a u-haul.

She said: When I was younger, we went camping with Girl Scouts and the radiator in our car was messing up. We had to stop every half hour or so to let the car cool down and during one of these stops, my dad ended up with pretty bad burns on his arm from the water spewing out of the radiator.

4. List three places you would like to visit someday.

He said: Alaska, China, Brazil

She said: France, Australia, Ireland

5. What are your top 5 things to pack for a trip? 

He said: Toothbrush, deodorant (almost always forgotten by me which is why I am the proud owner of 15 sticks), and the right shoes for the trip. The last two things are not material but an absolute necessity - an open mind for the adventure that lays ahead (regardless of how undane the trip may seem - every one is an adventure) and a proper attitude. The only way to travel is in high spirits. I try to always try to travel in a positive mood. After all, there is something on the other side of the road and plenty to see in between.

She said: Underwear, camera, toothbrush, clothes, and money for anything you might have forgotten.

Now that you've read our answers, I encourage you to ask your significant other the same questions! It's a great conversation starter (even when you're separated by miles). We'd love to hear your answers in the comments below or even see them posted on your blog! (If you do blog these questions, please leave us a link so that we can check it out!)
