Michele Lisenbury Christensen

My husband, Kurt, and I just got home from our latest adventure to Croatia. It sparked so many thoughts I can’t wait to share with you about why I think it's so important that couples carve out the time to be together, to get a completely different environment, and to have some novelty and adventure. I'm going to share with you over two episodes what we've done, why, and how you can do it, too. In this episode, we're going to dive into all the ways your relationship can benefit from an intimate getaway and tackle the mental blocks that keep you from your next adventure.

As you listen to this episode, you'll hear about:

  • Why we prioritize traveling alone together, even when it’s challenging
  • Some of our recent and memorable adventures
  • The guilt of leaving your children behind and how I overcome that mindset
  • How an intimate getaway can help you find a deeper connection with your partner and yourself
  • The emotional, physical, and financial risks of traveling and the rewards you and your family will gain for tackling them

Join the conversation by listening, then share your story or response on our voicemail at 206-659-9865 or inside our free Conscious Couples' Circle on Mighty Networks.

Hot Moments in This Episode:

  • Why I don’t feel badly for taking a trip to Europe 5:23
  • How we got a day to ourselves in Japan while traveling with kids 9:32
  • How being in a different country reminds us why we fell in love 13:59
  • Why I panicked before my trip to Croatia and how I got past it 19:39

I hope this episode affords you a new perspective on traveling with your partner.  My wish is that you have many beautiful and enlightening adventures throughout your long lives together.  And may the light within you illuminate the world around you.
