“I hope it’s ok that I checked with Myriam to see if we could go horseback riding in the morning,” said Lisa, as I came into the tiny house. Which is how we found ourselves on horseback yesterday, wending our way through mountain forests and meadows. I was atop Tina, a horse prone to breaking into a trot to catch up to Océane, our host. This was equal parts thrilling and terrifying (especially as I was riding English for the first time).
Having a partner who’s willing and eager to bilaterally yes& with me like this makes travel a delight.
