  •  Mr. Scribe traveled extensively (10+ / 0-)

    alone before we dated and in the early days of our relationship; it's one of the things that attracted me to him. It was the 1980s, perhaps a saner era, but he had no problem whatsoever. Many of our trips together before we were married involved both of us traveling alone for at least a brief period of time, just because he had more vacation time than I did (the perks of a union job, plus he didn't have to worry about paperwork stacked 3 feet high on his return). And even now when we travel together, often we'll split up for a time then meet up later or call to rendezvous on our cell phones, for example if I want to do some shopping or he wants to gather information on local sights and transportation. I also tend to get moving earlier than he does (I wake up later but get ready faster), so I can go out and do things while he's lazing around the hotel room.
