Dear Poll: Relaxing or Adventurous Honeymoon?

Yesterday Honeymoon Fiasco Francesca asked me for advice on how she and her fiance could compromise on their honeymoon destination because she wanted to relax and he wanted to explore. Since I've never been married, I can only imagine how hard it must be to agree on where to go for your honeymoon, not to mention agreeing on everything that comes a long with planning a vacation. When the time comes for me to make such decisions, I'll be all for relaxing and getting pampered, but what about you? Would you prefer a relaxing or adventurous honeymoon?

Both of course. One day at the beach please and then a hike the next day. Maybe climb some Mayan pyramids or some sailing around the area. I need it all.

i'd want 2 weeks in italy so i'd want to be exploring new cities and towns, but at a leisurly pace- and taking time to enjoy all the good food and wine. so not the usual frenzied european vacation!

A little bit of both though I'd need a little more of the relaxing part.

I'm going to Africa next year for my honeymoon. We're going to spend most the time on safari but have saved the last couple days for the beach.

To me, a honeymoon is like a vacation and I never take a vacation unless I get to see new things! My fiance and I are going out west for an action-packed two weeks!

My dream honeymoon is to go to Egypt (still don't have the husband part figured out, but whatever!) where you can explore ancient ruins and take a beach break. Best of both worlds if I do say myself!

I thought I wanted both, but the one day we set aside for relaxing on the beach was BORING. I wished we'd signed on for another day of scuba. I guess we're too active and adventurous to sit on beach chairs all day long.

I love the beach, but I want to play, I don't just want to sit! Water skiing, surfing lessons and scuba diving!

A little bit of both! Relaxing on a beach and then maybe go scubadiving and explore caves.
