I have a grasp on where my characters need to go, and what they'll do when they get there, however writing the travel portion of the story itself is what's become my biggest block. My two main characters Auron and Luna have to travel across two countries to arrive at a place called Ferma. They need to do so because Auron just acquired a legendary sword (at the expense of their Kingdom getting attacked) and needs to find a master capable of teaching him how to use its true power. Auron's generally selfish and doesn't like to put his trust in others and has to learn to do so. Luna's said Kingdom's princess and is rather strong but also arrogant and needs to learn how to become a leader. There's also going to be a third party member down the line but I have yet to get there because I can't think of anything to write when it comes to how they get to Ferma in the first place. I can't help but feel like any challenges I write up for them come off as formulaic. 'They run into a villain they have to fight or run from', 'they have to find their way out of a monster infested cave', etc. I also don't want to skip over the entire travel to Ferma since they're going to be relatively different people from when they started. I have ideas about how Auron and Luna are going to grow as characters along with the relationship between them in their journey, but I don't know how to go about writing it. Anyone got any tips?
