E is for Explore Your City Like a Tourist on a Date through the Alphabet

So, at this point... there's been 4 dates that have been remarkably outside the box, and we are onto date five, the letter "E." 

If you have little creativity or internet researching skills, you can opt for the easy choice of  "Eating."  But way to be an adventurous wet-blanket on that choice... or you can opt for dates with a little more pizazz. 

If I was tasked with the letter "E" and had a hefty bank account, I would choose either to go to Europe, maybe an excursion to see the Eiffel Tower or to Egypt.  Like, le duh... I have been afflicted with the incurable Wanderlust bug... Now, since that is likely not the situation I would find myself in, I would opt to Explore my city like a tourist. Now, that can be harder to do when you live in a smaller city, versus a larger one, but I haven't been everywhere here in Paducah. It's time I spent time as a tourist in my own city and what better way than explore with a sweetie. 

My other idea is to choose two or three fun excursions and put them each in an individual envelope. Then I'd let my significant other choose an envelope and we would venture on the excursion inside that particular envelope. 

If you've been everywhere there is to go in your city, or really aren't up for the choose-your-own-adventure envelope idea, perhaps you'd like to go the healthy route and you'd like to exercise together. Maybe take a run or partake in an exercise class at your local gym? If you are eco-friendly, perhaps you'd like to work together planting a vegetable garden in your backyard, or beautifying the Earth around your home. Landscaping? If you choose the latter, come on over on my 30th birthday. That's what I've asked for. 

What does your "E" date look like?

  1. I LOVE the envelope idea. It would make for a really fun and exploratory day.

    Good luck with the 2015 A to Z Challenge!

  2. I LOVE that excusion/envelope idea! I might have to use that sometime!
    And we love exploring our city. It's huge and so it actually can be used a date over and over again. Especially if you count St. Augustine in there because it's just an hour away and but has even more fun things to do!

    1. You should definitely try that idea! I loved visiting St. Augustine... minus the pirates that I always want to take pictures with, but then they expect you to surrender the $booty$... Just wait until you can incorporate Baby Obie on your exploration dates!! Eeeeek!
