I guess I am lucky here.  We are both lounge on the beach during the day people then hit a little local spot for a few drinks and music that evening

My guy is just like that.   Vacation to him is mountains/nature. Not a problem with me but not every vacation!  Doing nothing on the beach with a book is vacay to me.

I’m just like your hubby DG! I have to have an activity or two for each day and will research unique restaraunts to eat at before leaving. Fiance likes to lay on the beach like you and we drive each other nuts!

I suppose my out of control sightseeing probably has something to do with the fact that I’m a red head with very fair skin and a history of second degree burns from “lounging”!

Lol, DG!  My husband doesn’t know how to relax either.  πŸ™‚  Ideally, all of our future vacations will be set up like our honeymoon: several days to explore/sightsee/do stuff and then several days to relax/drink/spend quiet time together.  I found that, just like with our dogs, I have to really wear him out or he doesn’t leave me alone!

MrsDG, I can’t believe it!  You and I are super similar and my Fiance and your hubby are super similar.  We compromised on our honeymoon and are going to Kauai, so we can have the best of both worlds. 

He can’t understand why I wanted to have an oceanfront resort because he claims that they are just expensive and it doesn’t really matter.  Of course it does!  I plan on spending my days just relaxing on the beach, with a fruity drink and a couple of books.  Fiance just about flipped out.  He said that 10 minutes of laying on the beach would be torture.  Oh well, wish us luck on our honeymoon!

I ask my husband to bring me breakfast on vacations with the excuse that it takes me longer to get ready in the morning, and breakfast in the hotel will move things along.  Also, I give him the camera and tell him I want X number of photos from each location.  πŸ™‚  But driving while he runs behind the car might work too!

OMG…we are completely different!…Mrs. DG you are like me and your husband is like mine!  I could go a whole week on a beach…maybe occasionally hitting up a site or two while i’m there…but the bulk of my dream vacay would be relaxing somewhere…that would sooo not be his idea of ‘fun’…but that’s actually our everyday lives as well…hubby has to be busy doing 10 million things a week while could be happy going to work and coming home…

I am one of those have to do something vacationer. Especially regarding food. I was a culinary arts major, so I always want to go out and try new food. Fiance is more of the relaxer. He’s content with just laying around!

Depends on timing for us.

Right after the wedding: veg and relax at small ‘controlled environment’ resort island

Vacation as newlyweds 3 months later….a little more touring and further off the beaten path but surrounded by loved ones in a semi-familiar location

Vacation as ‘old’ marrieds 6 months later…first time non-package Europe adventure exploration, by ourselves–flipping out planning it and relying on each other to make lemonade of whatever comes our way!
