Weigh in please

So HH and I are planning our next honeymoon, and we need your help. We can’t decide whether to go on a relaxing vacation: think lounging by the pool somewhere tropical (Bali, Costa Rica, Belize.)

Or do we go on a “trip” where we actually learn something, see new things, smell new scents, etc; thinking along the lines of Egypt, Russia, or New Zealand.

So what do you think? Rest, relaxation and foo-foo drinks under an umbrella? Or the camels and I comparing toes in the desert?

For the record, our first honeymoon was both a vacation AND a trip. We Eva & Juan Peron’d our way all over Buenos Aires for the first five days, and then rejuvenated in Carmelo, Uruguay for the last five. The perfect honeymoon combo bite.

  • I vote for BOTH! Like your first honeymoon. Knowing you- maybe you'd be bored with too much pool time. xx

  • I vote for the relaxing vacation. I always find that I need a vacation from the "busy" vacations when I come home. Costa Rica is beautiful, you can lay on a beach, then head to the rainforests, or volcanos, then find great night life.
    I found your blog through the comment you left on mine today…thank you.
    Your blog is very well done. I will continue to read.

  • Go to an Ashram in India for some spiritual exploration and then jump over to Bali for some R&R in a hut over the ocean.

  • to each their own and only you can decide but if it were me i'd go with option 2. do it while you're still young and have the energy to ride a camel thru the desert. you won't in a few years.

  • I will be your baggage bitch.

  • i also vote for both. hubby and i had postpone our honeymoon (we got married in may http://tearinguphouses.blogspot.com/2009/09/i-lov… ) bc we're in the process of unexpectedly relocating. anyway, at the beginning of the year we're doing both bc he wants relaxing and i want adventure — a couple of weeks in italy galavanting around the cities and a few days winding down on the islands in greece recharging. sooo looking forward to it.
