India is a difficult travel. Relationships can suffer while experiencing this country. While it helps being a couple because we have each other to rely on and to vent to, it can also take its toll on the relationship because both of your emotions are running high.
Here are some of the things that Dave and I have done to keep sane and enjoy each others company while traveling through India.
1. Splurge. It may stress you out more than the stress of India itself when you spend a weeks budget on one night of accommodation, but your relationship will thank you! Clean sheets, hot shower and the chance to snuggle up to one another in peace, quiet and comfort is just the key. Most beds in guest houses in India are simply two single beds pushed together. I always feel like I am sleeping alone because we have a space between us or it is just too uncomfortable to sleep on that crack in the centre of the bed. A luxurious hotel room will help you reconnect to one another.
2. Go on a Date. India has a lot of movie theaters and chances are you will find one showing an English flick. Make plans to go and see one and then go out for a romantic dinner. Find the most expensive place that you can afford. You will feel almost normal. It’s like date night, only it’s in India.
3. Communicate. It is important to talk about how you are feeling and to vent your frustrations.

I didn’t want to do it. I looked for every excuse leading up and during to our voyage to Antarctica trying to justify why it would be ok if I didn’t take the Polar Plunge.
I had never witnessed so many shades of blue and I couldn’t comprehend the beauty around me.
But what we were really excited to see was the sculpture of a whale skeleton that someone put together years ago.
