Obviously, The Travelling Freelancer wouldn't be anything without all the experts contributing both to the magazine and the blog. For example, on the blog you'll find a monthly post with questions for life coach Dina Pyramid! Got your own question? Send us an email and we'll ask her!
I've been travelling for about 5 years and last year I fell in love with a local from Australia. I decided to stay with him and we took quite a few short trips together across the country (it's `SO big here!) whenever his work allows. However, the wanderlust is starting to itch again and I don't think a quick fix short trip is going to fix it this time. My boyfriend likes travelling, but he's also very happy with his life and work here in Australia. I love him and I don't wanna lose him, but I also want to keep discovering new places. What can I do, how do other people do this? Hope you can help!
Well Tamara, the first thing I would do is sit down with him and have an honest conversation and explain how you feel… you never know what might come from it! Without clearly understanding how someone is feeling, you cannot move forward with a decision.
If you have already spoken about it without any resolution and the wanderlust itch isn’t fading, you should follow your heart. Go and explore. If you’re meant to be together forever, then what is a couple of months/half a year away from each other? It’s just a drop in the ocean compared to the rest of your life. Also, you will both learn new things about each other that could make the relationship even better. Remember you are the only person who can decide what is right. Listen to your intuition. :)
