Via way of compromise, often diverging opinions can be brought together to find a mutually beneficial path.
Such are the thoughts that occur when the HTB are discussing honeymoon destinations and plans. a very wise friend of us both suggested writing down a top ten list of things we individually wanted from the honeymoon (and, yes, I am aware that it sounds silly to have a honeymoon thrird time around but I’ve never had one and I would love to do it).
So we each made up our separate lists and our essential criteria and I am embarassed to admit that his were all incredibly loving and noble and mine were all crass and shallow.
I said I wanted a private pool or spa or to be on the beach: he said he wanted a lap pool at least ten metres long so he could do laps for exercise.
He wanted quality of experience: I wanted a room where the staff would just leave me alone.
He wanted serene surrounds: I wanted privacy so I could be naked all day.
He wanted a reasonable selection of different dining options; I wanted to eat out at roadside stalls.
He wanted proximity to other experiences and adventures: I wanted proximity to the air port.
And, most damming, he wanted a country that had equality of law for its citizens; I wanted a pool with a swim up bar.
Do you think we are doomed?
