Rate your partner's ability/inability to travel

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Only difficulty is applying for visas to UK/EU which she needs my help for; everything else an absolute breeze.

It's physically impossible for me to drink the entire beer budget even with some friends to help every day - just the way I like it... :beer1:

Rate your partner's ability/inability to travel
I never really understood you breeders and your requirement of a full time female cohort, so suffice to say, personally, it's something i never have to consider.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

My wife loves to travel, but I get frustrated traveling with her.

Whenever I tell her something like "We have to leave the house at 11:00 a.m." this means that at exactly 10:59 a.m. she will go into the bathroom for 7-10 minutes.

She has been to 7 countries know, flown more than a dozen times, but is still basically incapable of catching a flight anywhere on her own. She seems to have no concept of the difference between flight time and boarding time. It totally befuddles her when she checks in for a 2 p.m. flight and then she gets a boarding pass that says boarding time 1:20 p.m., but to find her departure gate on the screen she has to know the flight time, which is 2 p.m., not the 1:20 p.m. printed on the thing in her hand.

Same problem collecting luggage. She flew from Phnom Penh to Singapore once and went to the baggage claim screens to find her flight and baggage carousel number. She couldn't find it. She was staring at the cities starting with "S" for Singapore.

She frequently stops to use airport bathrooms and then spends 10 minutes in there every time while I'm standing outside holding her bag.

When I was single, I always booked an aisle seat. Now,I have to sit in the middle seat at least half the time. Usually more than half the time, because the solo traveler in the window seat is usually a man and she wants me to sit next to strange men.

She has no interest in using Google Maps and learning where things are on her own. Asking a Cambodian to use Google Maps is like asking a chimpanzee to solve a Rubik's cube.

I have taken it upon myself to just walk into the airport with her and say nothing and tell her find out how to check in, board the flight, find the luggage, etc. and she always fails and resents me making her try to do it on her own.

Confucious says,,, He who travels fastest ,, travels alone.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
