Sophia’s Best and Local Mentors will have you snorkeling and fishing, hiking and camping, dancing and singing, as opportunities to rediscover each others unique qualities. Will you tug ropes on sails filled with Aegean winds or sprawl your bodies on deck to absorb sunlight? Will your partner press their fingertips into mountain rock and climb or keep the campfire warm to cook? Acutely aware of you and your partner’s behaviors, you will peer into each others actions and choices. Peeling off archetypes or tropes, stereotypes or labels, you will recognize each other for your authentic idiosyncrasies. Reigniting the qualities that inspired your love in the first place.
In adventurous tasks in island ports and quests between cobbled villages, you will unravel your similarities to uncover differences, and rummage through your contrasts to find those qualities that you truly have in common. Curiosity may lure you into a wobbling canoe, whilst curiosity may lure your partner into the colors of a canvas. The same surge of freedom may send you charging down the river and your partner into the world of paint. On the other hand, you may notice the similarities you thought you shared are, actually, inherently different. Is swimming a source of thrill for you and a source of peace for them? Are conversations a source of connection for them and a source of pleasantries for you?
It’s extremely challenging to establish the true source of similarity and even more challenging to recognize which differences could potentially be constructive and creative. Between colorful houses leaning over the sea or wooden tavernas leaning into mountain rock, you will explore the qualities of your characters that cause friction and those that ignite the spark that energizes your love.
