So my fiance has been begging for years to go on a zipline. As I’ve said a few times I have some chronic illness issues and I never really see myself being able to do one. I had a wild idea of buying a zip lining excursion for him about half way through our honeymoon (this will give me a chance to rest without him missing out and me feeling guilty) but not sure if this is inappropriate because it’s our honeymoon and we should be spending it together.
What do you think? Would it be a nice surprise or should I wait and try to plan a trip with his friends down the road to fufill this bucket list item for him.

I say do it! It’s only for a couple of hours and you can treat yourself to the spa while he’s ziplining.

I love that idea and I don’t think this is inappropriate at all! You can just call it another wedding present. Definately nothing wrong with a little extra rest for you too!

I think it’s a great idea! While he’s ziplining you can take a nap or hit the spa. The spa usually runs specials while the ship is in port.

sounds like a great idea. There’s no rule that says you have to spend every second together 🙂

I think such a wonderful gift from the heart is far better than the idea of “we are supposed to spend all our time together, right?” What a thoughtful bride!
I also think the spa idea is beyond wonderful.
He’ll be all geeked up from his zipline, you will be all relaxed from your spa time – gee, I wonder what that could lead to!

Great idea! I’m sure he will love the surprise.

@MelodicCallie: go for it. Ziplining is loads of fun, your fi will love it.

Go for it, if you feel really guilty about not going along (which would be totally fine) you coudl always go along & the the picture taker! That way you could ‘experience’ it together..

You should definitely do this. I did things separate from my Darling Husband on my honeymoon. He doesn’t scuba dive but I wasn’t going to Fiji and not going to go! 🙂
No reason you should have to be attached at the hip just cause it’s your hm. you also probably COULD go with him and watch if you wanted!

if it makes you feel better, i did exactly this! i know my fiancee wants to do ziplining, but i’m afraid of heights. i knew once we were there he wouldn’t go without me, so i already booked it for him as a christmas present. i’m hitting the spa 🙂

I agree!!! Go for it! Just because it’s your honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be more thna 5 feet apart at any time. It’ll probably be nice to get a teensy bit of separate time anyway. And he gets to do something he really wants to do. And you get to relax or go to the spa! Win win win!

Thanks for you suggestion ladies. I dropped hints about him doing an excursion alone and he didn’t like the idea. Oh well, it was a good intention. Maybe someone else will read this and successfully gift their new hubbs a surprise excursion.
