Whenever Alex and I are on a trip—on a plane, on a train, out to dinner, at the beach—we end up playing "Would You Rather?" It's random and entertaining...and it also can reveal funny things about the other person (someone you thought you knew until he admitted he'd rather have the power of invisibility vs. flight what is he crazy!!!)
Some sample questions:
Would you rather be lost in a desert or at sea?
Would your rather make more money or get more vacation time?
Would you rather meet your ancestors or your great-grandchildren?
Would you rather be able to eat anything you wanted forever or get rid of all your fears?
Would you rather take a vacation to a city or the beach?
Would you rather be an amazing cook or an amazing dancer?
Would you rather camp or stay in a hotel?
Would you rather always be a little too hot or a little too cold?
The game invariably spirals into other questions, such as: Who would you invite to have dinner with us tonight (if you could pick anyone*)? Where would you go on vacation tomorrow if money were no object? What are you bad at that you wish you were good at? Describe your dream house.
Do you ever play this game? Any other little rituals you have in vacations?
P.S. A great thing to do on romantic vacations, and our first trip without babies.
