travel: never marry a guy until you travel with him

even if you don't marry him, at least you brought along someone who can take photos of you

“Never marry a guy until you travel with him” is a piece I wrote for Byond.Travel, a new experiential travel site I do content consulting with and which happens to be owned by someone I know:D I’ve since cross-published it on Medium.com. I also discovered that Bill Murray shared similar advice last year and, though I might not follow it to the T, I would still like attend a bachelor party with him someday (after I get invited to one) (a girl can wish, right?):

“If you have someone you think is the one, don’t do… don’t just sort of think in your ordinary mind, ‘Ok, let’s make a date… and have a party… and get married.’ Take that person and travel around the world. Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel ALL around the world and go to places that are hard to get to and hard to get out of. And when you come back… and if you’re still in love with that person… get married at the airport.”

Now here’s the video if you’d like to watch it. Pay attention to the young men in the background who slowly get jerked back to reality when the old uncle figure begins giving them advice — reminds me of all the fam jams where one of my uncles has one-too-many and we’re all laughing until suddenly he gets down to serious business, eg.: “Now, did you know that when we were kids, grandpa once told us a story about his father…..”

Please note that I absolutely despise airports so the likelihood of getting married in one is very low. But everything else is generally in line with my views on life and love.
