A couple have spent five years building a twin-hulled catamaran so that they could sail to their dream holiday in the Caribbean, Wales Online reported Januray 26th. The article, “Welsh couple fulfil their Caribbean holiday dream by building their own boat,” noted that Mark and Suze Hicks from Tenby are now moored in Barbados after a hairy 2,800 nautical mile journey across the Atlantic. Mark commented, ‘It took us five winters of hard work to build with me doing most of the work alone and Suze helping when she wasn’t working to pay our bills… Suze is a bit of an adventurer – a keen free diver, climber, mountaineer and off piste skier – and needed no convincing.’ (

Following on from this, Yourwellness Magazine explored why couples fight when on holiday. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘Holidays are a stressful time for family wellness and wellbeing, and nearly all couples have fights during holidays. What you need to do is just take a step back and think about the bigger picture, as it’s much better in the long run if you can keep your stress levels low. If you look around you, you’ll see holiday stress and relationship dramas everywhere you look…If you start thinking negatively, it’s far too easy to let all the little things turn into major fights.’ (

Yourwellness Magazine advised couples to transform their mindset, and start thinking that the holiday is going to be great rather than a big stress to organise. Yourwellness Magazine also recommended couples communicate about little things, so that the vacation isn’t ruined by those holiday blowups that everyone is so susceptible to. Yourwellness Magazine commented that, when couples are on holiday with other family members, one partner may have a closer relationship with the family than the other, and so this can lead to tension.
