My wife and I like to travel and the rental business has blessed us with the opportunity to do some really neat trips now that we are older and have the time and money. Her preferred style of travel usually involves a top of the line cruise or river ship in a place with a rich history to explore. In planning a trip for early next year It's her turn to select so I gave her a list of options that I thought she would like. Most were the standard cruise options on a really nice ship in some history rich place. Then I added one that was a high adventure trip trudging through the Amazon jungle that is far from a luxury outing.

I knew which one she would pick, she loves traveling in luxury. Boy was I wrong, she chose the Amazon adventure which I would have guessed would have been bottom of her list. We've been married 36 years. I've always been the adrenaline junky doing scuba diving, para sailing, zip lining, bungee jumping and the like. She has always been the one to go for the safe bet of comfort and luxury. When I asked her why she picked that one she said "I was feeling adventurous"... Now after 36 years, she is feeling adventurous? I was reminded of the old Sci-Fi movie "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", who replaced my tranquil, easy going wife, is she now an alien?. Are we going through role reversal as we age? I'm trying to figure out what this really means. Help me understand!

MikeA,

Maybe she was feeling adventurous but my guess is that she assumed that you put it in the group of choices because you would like it.

I think she picked it because she thought that was what you wanted to do. Seems like you made a really good choice 36 years ago.

Yup - I bet she loves you and wants to give you what she knows you want.

Maybe she really want's to give it a try & she's just built up the courage after seeing you survive so many "crazy" things for so long. My biggest concern would be whether she is up for it - safely - rather than starting with a more "mild" adventure.

From another perspective:

Why would you suggest the Amazon in her year to pick?

Perhaps your love for her would offer her a second chance to pick, because you REALLY want HER to enjoy the trip. You can always find another adrenaline junkie to go with you to the Amazon another time, I bet. --68.229.xxx.xxx

I don't think that's it. I asked her about why she chose that one and she didn't miss a beat when she said she wanted an adventure. We talked for a while after and I think she really wants to go. It isn't her usual style but it isn't completely roughing it either. I'd call it more glamping, they have air conditioning and running water. You just have to take a small puddle jumping plane to the middle of the jungle to get there. --209.205.xxx.xx

That is so cool about your wife's choice of visiting the Amazon rain forest! I am piqued by her own deep interest in places that are rich in history. Maybe she would like to see the lungs of the Earth and the namesake of a big company? Maybe she has been seeing and hearing about the extremely colorful creatures that people often share on social media?

I myself am curious about the touring glamping company that will help outsiders see the rainforest. Would you please share your thoughts after your trip? Have an awesome trip! --71.202.xx.xxx

My mother visited the Amazon in her mid sixties. It was one of her favorite trips ever. I was very jealous!!

My wife and I are the same way...she is the homebody and I like adventure. I think she is trying to please you.

WHen I plan our vacations, I make sure to include things each of us like. For her, we'll visit a lavender farm and a topiary garden. For me, some old castles and a couple craft beer pubs.

Hope you enjoy the trip! --99.92.xxx.xxx

Running buildings is a day to day adventure so she wanted peace while travelling. So now it's not nearly so harrowing for her so she has room in her heart and soul for adventure. Or she is possessed. That does happen. If your teenager suddenly becomes a monster, call a priest. --71.188.xx.xxx
