    No action-packed vacation for me!  doesn't fit my temperament.  Vacation for me, is synonymous with leisure.  Even if I want to have some action, let me decide when, where, how, at my convenience.

      Thanks MsDora, Having loved both types of holidays, depending on time of year, destination and travelling companion I see your viewpoint totally! Thanks for your comment!

    I prefer a natural vacation. Natural means a life blended with nature with my wife. Might be a beach resort will give me the perfect natural vacation spot for me.

    Both, please! Sometimes it is great to hang out on the beach, especially after a really busy work period or stressful event. I love hiking, visiting new places, and trying new things, though - so I usually go for action-packed vacations!

      Hi leahlefler, I know, it's hard to choose if you enjoy both!! I love skiing but also lazing on a beach!! Thanks so much for your comment!

    I enjoy a combination of the two; we always schedule some action and some downtime. Our 5 year old would be bored silly without some sort of fast paced activities (his favorites are water slides and 4 wheelers). I enjoy the zoos, aquariums and anything to do with nature. So, we compromise so that everyone gets a little of what they enjoy.

    Hi Suzie HQ,
    can't do lazing on the beach but can do sitting at coffee shops on the piazza's watching people and the world go by. That's southern Italy piazza's of course,

    I mostly prefer a relaxing holiday where I can just lie on the beach or walk through a forest and listen to the sounds of animals and birds.  Although, there must at least be something interesting to see or do, I think I'd get bored if I was on a deserted Island for more than two days.

      Hi MelChi, Know exactly what you mean with boredom possibly on deserted island however I would still love to give it a go!! See how creative I could be with things! Thanks for your comment!

    Both! Last year we went to the Australian Outback for a week and followed up with a cruise. That was a perfect combination.

      Wow Bill, great combination always fancied both these trips! Often watched the cruise liners in different ports around Europe and thought"Yep, must give that a go sometime" and The Aussie Outback would be an experience all in itself! Thanks Bill!

      Hi vims003, Relaxation definitely needed from work, and often takes you days to unwind, I have found. Good to switch off and recharge the batteries! Thanks vims003 for answer!

    I would say a mixture of both. I would like to have fun when its time to have fun and relax when it's time to relax.

    I would rather have and easy going, relaxing vacation than an action packed one.  The reason, when vacationing I am trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  I do like to do interesting things, especially hiking and sightseeing.  but I want to come home feeling refreshed, not tired out.

    With children I don't think anyone can have a complete relax, laid back, vacation. We usually incorporate both into a vacation. Have to keep them busy, yet at the end of the day go somewhere that is relaxing.......

    Hi LaThing, Thanks so much for answering. With children on vacation, activity is always good especially if the adults get some down time to relax!  Best of both worlds! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
