As so many people lately are going on vacation or traveling, one thing came to mind.
One day a friend said, "It's amazing but when you travel with a person, you learn things about them you would not have learned in 10 years!".
That got me thinking, and it is so true! You may say, "I've known that person for 7 years". Yet, if it was just casual, "how are you doing?", phone calls, out for coffee, you may not really know that person at all, since you may hear a play by play of the day's events, maybe bragging, maybe complains, though are you really spending quality time that really shows you what they are made of?
Yet, once you decide to take a vacation together, you must plan, agree on where to eat, where to stay, and in the process spending so much time together, conversation after a couple hours passes from the superficial into more in depth, plus you start to see all the little hidden quirks, funny ones, cute ones or not!
By spending 2 weeks with someone, you learn about a person what you would not have learned in ten years!
