We had been identifying one another for a few months, and this was our first expedition together. But expelled from our usual situations( in bed, or watching TV, or watching Tv in bunked ), we realised too late that we had nothing to say to each other. At one point we parked our rental gondola and just sat there, pas the time until we could go home and eventually break up.
Anecdotally, this is not uncommon. The first trip-up away together is likely to be stir or smash, either by spotlight conflicts it was easy to gloss over at home, or by putting your new affair under such strain it is unable to recover. Asked for admonition for surviving duet holidays, more than one person greeted:” Separate journeys .”
