Travel Guides’ most modern individuals, Melbourne-based Deepesh (‘Dee’) and Sage, may nonetheless be newlyweds (the duo tied the knot in 2017 after years of courting). Still, they reckon they’ve got this entire traveling as a couple of things down pat.
Firstly, they have got a delegated ‘planner.’
“Project control is my professional profession, but when it comes to tour, [Sage] is the planner,” Dee tells 9Honey Travel.
“Oh, she plans the whole lot to the tee! She suits each outfit of hers together with her footwear, and he or she packs 5 of hers and mine … I am inspired at her lists, her ticks, and crosses.”
Sage – who is also apparently the official ‘navigator’ – agrees with this evaluation. ” I can’t loosen up until the ultimate hairpin and rubber band are packed … I even have my yellow book, and I relied on pen and stale I move! I need my listing, right down to the minute information.”
Secondly, they have mastered the art of compromise (critical).
“Generally, we tour honestly well together. We used to bicker over what and the way to percent for the journey. Since then, we’ve got made a percent; this means that he is not allowed to the touch the bags anymore, except for lifting and weighing them,” Sage says.
Dee agrees; it’s far more peaceful now that she packs for the both of them.
“I simply go together with the go with the flow and gloss over itineraries, dates, and stuff; however, Sage is unique about most matters she does.”
Lastly, they have the same precise travel style commonplace – you spot, it seems the newlyweds both share a rare urge for food for adrenalin.
To provide you with an instance, following their 2017 nuptials, the couple launched into an “adventurous honeymoon,” visiting around New Zealand’s South Island and partaking in thrill-searching for sports like bungee leaping and jet boating.
Ahead of the launch of this year’s season of Travel Guides, the couple is hopeful Australia will see their “cheeky and humorous facet” at some stage in the collection (“do now not omit our ‘Taiwan’ episode”).
But do not anticipate smooth cruising all the manner – the Indian-born Aussies may supplement each other well. However, they may be the first to confess they may be now not proof against the bizarre on-the-avenue hiccup.
“I am very ‘expressive’ and now and then outrageous while installing uncommon tour situations. I am also a chunk twist of fate/incident prone … Makes for humorous tv moments,” Sage teases.
For any couples considering equal adventure, Sage had this advice: “Be yourself, be expressive; allow yourself pass. Try out something new, awkward, and interesting collectively, and you will enjoy it even extra. Remember that existence is brief. It is now or by no means.”
