When this same screen name was visiting Mexico in March, they had their wife with them.

My wife wanted to read this topic but will wait until tomorrow because she does not have time to read every word tonight.

As others do, we split up and agree to meet somewhere at a specific time.

"I guess my husband and I are not travel compatible."

Get yourself another husband.

Hey, if WorldTraveler1024 doesn't know if he/she is the husband or wife, how can we help them.

Maybe there are two people posting? But they both use the same screen name? And both don't have a good time regardless of where they travel?

People, people, look at you! Split personalities is a serious disorder, and should be handles with care. Nothing funny in waking up in some foreign country not remembering who you are.

Or you think it can be planeed like we plan vacations: if it's Tuesday and it must be Belgium, I'm Mrs 1024 today?

>>>>The OP was a male in the post above, but now seems to have had a change of orientation...<<<

Perhaps the OP went to Asia for surgery?

Well I hope for his/her sake that they had carpets in the hospital rooms!

I am amused how so many posters will try to discredit my husband and I by bringing up our old posts and try to guess if my husband or I wrote the post. Both of us use the login and screen-name worldtraveler1024.

He thinks that most couples spend the whole day at the major museums and I am wrong for wanting to see a little bit of many different tourist attractions. We have to agree to disagree.

Glad you solved the gender mystery!

You know, you have asked many questions here and many people have taken the time to respond. Have you considered writing a trip report about your recent visit to Italy?

nice to have you back, WT.

mmm - i see no right and wrong here. when you say that you have agreed to disagree, will he be accompanying you to a non-museum attraction next time you go anywhere?

i win, i win (i guessed two people posting under the same screen name).

WorldTraveler1024~ You might each want to post under your own name. It would be a LOT less confusing that way. I don't think I know of any other posters who "share" their screen name.

I don't mean to make fun but...every time I read the heading on this thread my mind fills in the second part as "and my cat makes too much noise."
It's nothing personal towards the OP and certainly off-topic, but fans of "Always Sunny in Philadelphia" will get it.

There is another poster who sometimes uses his/her spouse's name but always starts off ...mr. ___ here. So no confusion. CJ

Well- here's a solution. Have everyone here vote for a couple of options:

Couples together all day every day at a museum
couples together at all different types of sites for varying times less than the full day
Couples that spend a lot of time together but some apart when they want to see different things
Couples in which one partner would take vacations with another family member or friend because the partner is so controlling and irritating
Couples in which one partner would take vacations with another family member or friend because the partner is so controlling and irritating

Then show your husband the results.

He does? On what basis? There's grounds for divorce on the basis of him being a complete idiot.

Troll. You've never left the USA.

I don't understand couples who think they always have to do the same things. Two people, two sets of preferences.
I also don't understand people who seek marital advice on a travel forum.
