My name is Liz and I love travelling (oh really?) although I wouldn’t say I have been a “big” traveller so far. During my childhood, my dear parents would always prefer to spend summers on the beach in the same country (not that I complain!), but over the years my interest to learn about the world out there and thirst for travelling have grown bigger and bigger, especially since I got a real job (yes! you guessed it, I am a Millennial).
Since my half-emancipation (now full emancipation, yay!), I have lived in a few countries – Belgium, Estonia, France, Poland, Romania, Spain, Switzerland and United States (all in alphabetic order, I will let you guess where I am from and where I live now 😇 ) – and in one of them, I met the love of my life, my hubby (hereinafter “H”).
This doesn’t make me/us “big” traveller(s) yet, and will explain more about this below, but because of one reason or another (lack of means or holidays I guess) a few years ago we would barely go outside Europe (hint), but now we have started to do at least one “big” trip per year and after all the research behind and enjoyment during, I feel like our first-hand experience could help others plan their own trips!
We really hope you will like this blog and find it useful
Why ‘The Resistance Traveller’?
Maybe by now you have guessed it? H is all about doing things but travelling is not in his list of priorities, and this means I need to show a lot of resistance in general in order to manage to have him on board for a trip, plus the whole organisation usually falls on me and thus the name ‘The Resistance Traveller’.
In addition, picking up a destination is often quite difficult, either because of distance, safety or other reasons, and this requires a lot of strength 💪 and lobbying from me within the couple. Does anyone see herself/himself reflected in this situation? Please tell me I am not alone!
And yes, H is the kind of person that you take him to an amazing place and looks at you like “Yes, beautiful, but I could have lived without coming here…” 🙄 … That said, H is the most amazing and interesting person I have ever met, and has enjoyed all the trips we have done together so far (I can see it deep inside his eyes, hooray!).
My ultimate goal with this blog is that H will some day publish his own post…
[That’s not me either!]
By now (if you are still reading) you will have noticed I like GIFs… one day I will share my favorite one! 😉
We would be pleased to hear from you!
