I wish he shared my passion. I wish we would go on vacations together as a couple. but he simply doesn't seem to get the point in traveling. any idea on how I could make him open up his eyes when it comes to this matter?

I have a friend who is an avid traveler and have been to many places all by herself. Her husband refuse to tag along simply because of air travel phobia. She met and made many new friends sharing her interest in traveling. Now she and her new traveling buddies travel together everywhere. And this has the blessing of her husband who graciously foot all her traveling expenses.

Maybe your friend's husband is happy to have some time alone!

@swissheart Not at all. Husband is homely type while my friend is a happy go lucky woman. I don't know where she gets all her energy as she seems to be traveling every month with her camera taking pictures of all the interesting places she visits. She is a good photographer as well.

You should ask him the reason of why he doesn't like travelling as much as you. However you should also respect his opinion.

Maybe you could ask him why he doesn't seem to like travelling. You can't really force a person to want what you want but you could both come up with a solution for this matter.

his idea is that I should do these things on my own but I don't think is normal as long as we're a couple

@swissheart Ask him that it would be a lot fun and meaningful if he was there with you. He might give in

How your man could be like you? Every individual has a distinct personality and their desires and motivation level are different. We always wish that other one should be like us but it is not the case. Nonetheless, you could discuss your desires for going on vacation with him and could convince him that change is spice of life and if you both go for an excursion trip, it would be a good change for you.

I'm convinced that if he did this once he would start to enjoy it but as long as he never went abroad...

My sisters husband is the same way. He hates planes and feels uncomfortable out of the country.Luckily he doesnt mind short road trips othereise they would never go anywhere. Have you tried to talk to him about it? Not totally sure that would help but is worth a try.

There really are people who don't get the point of travelling... Oh well, it's their point of view... If you want, you can visit Philippines! lol
