My husband spends too long at each tourist attraction

Jump to last reply

I guess my husband and I are not travel compatible. I like travel but get so frustrated with him when we visit museums, historic and scenic sites. For example, he will go into a museum or an Art Gallery and insist that we spend basically the entire day there. After 3-4 hours I am getting bored and ready to move on to the next attraction but he is just getting started. By the 6th hour he is just getting started and I am frustrated. Finally we leave and I am so happy to get out of the place and he feels like he was being rushed!

So, when you travel does your spouse want to stay the same amount of time as you at various scenic, historical or cultural attractions? How can you compromise?
