04 Jul 2012 Couples Travel Together: How do we do it?
We were recently interviewed about Traveling as a Couple by Travelinksites:
Today we have the fine pair behind the super blog We Said Go Travel. With well over 100 countries tucked away in Lisa and George’s repetoire, these guys are experts! Their blog is full of videos, info and tales from far flung places so make sure you check them out. But first, let’s hear how they travel successfully as a married couple…
1. Could you briefly introduce yourselves and your site?
Hello! We are a traveling couple. I worked for seven years at sea for Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean International and Renaissance Cruises in the youth program and as cruise staff and went scuba diving and traveling on six continents. My husband George lived in Paraguay as part of the Peace Corps Program and traveled around South America. Both of us had been to nearly 100 countries (by Traveler’s Century Club count) before we met.
George found me online—and we started traveling together almost immediately. Our first journey was to Fiji and Vanuatu. In Vanuatu, we went to a village, met a Peace Corps worker and I had my first bucket bath. When we started our first year-long journey, we wrote a newsletter every month. After we got married, we went from our “He Said, She Said” to our website: We said Go Travel.
Thank you to Travelinksites.com for choosing us as a Traveling Couple for their site! We hope to share more about how we do it while we are gone this year!
Happy Independence Day! We hope you find a way to make all your dreams come true and feel INDEPENDENT this year!
