Our Favorite Conversation Starters

One thing we love hearing after our guests have returned from their Getaways is that they connected more deeply with their partner, their sibling, their parent, their friend, once they were away from their daily distractions. It seems inevitable that with time away from screens and stress, and time spent in nature, we start reflecting on larger themes and questions in our lives, and we start asking our loved ones deeper questions.

Here are some of our favorite questions to ask to get to know our family and friends better.
