I am madly in love with my husband, but we have such different interests when it comes to taking a holiday. I prefer just spending time on the beach, getting a tan and reading a good book. I love letting the stress of my normal life just evaporate as I enjoy the lazy life for a week. My husband is the opposite. He wants to stay as active as possible, and our two children take after him. You would think this would make holidays hard for us, but it’s easy! Take our hiking holidays in Spain, for instance.
When we go there, we know that we are going to spend a lot of time together, but we also know that I will get my private beach time and he and the kids will get to go exploring. We have been there twice so far, and the hike schedule was different both times. That made it so much nicer for them, though I suspect they would have been equally as happy if the hike schedule had been the same. They enjoyed it that much the first time, and they knew that there was a lot more to explore to warrant a second holiday there.
While they were off exploring the hillsides and coves of Spain, I was on the beach enjoying a very peaceful and relaxing time. I read three full length novels and got a fantastic tan at the same time. When the kids and my husband were done hiking, they were ready to join me for a swim, and then we had plenty of restaurants around us to eat at. We even took a trip into the city and was able to visit some museums that was interesting for all of us. I suspect that we may even go back for a third trip soon!
