It is always difficult to find new activities that will not bore you immediately. Because of that, it is always a good idea to think of new things that you will do with your partner, as you really do not want to end up in a rut and live the same day over and over again. Some interesting and new activities require traveling, others not, but we present you 10 summer activities that you can do with your boyfriend, and that both of you will like:
1. Surfing’s always fun
One of the most original things that you can do with your partner is surfing. This is not an activity that is popular in every country in the world but it is definitely an activity that plenty of people would like to try out. Even if they are clumsy, they love seeing other guys getting their surf equipment on and showing what they have. So, get your tickets, fly somewhere where surfing’s always cool such as Australia, and hit the beach!
2. Why not try hunting?
Hunting is somewhat a taboo topic right now because some people oppose it on moral or other grounds. However, you can easily live out a fantasy of being a hunter even without harming any animals. If that sounds appealing, then you can always check out TheBowGuy, pick the equipment that you need and hit the road. Of course, just put on your equipment and get in tune with your inner hunter by shooting archery targets.
3. Skydiving for the brave
5% of people all around the world are scared of heights, which means that this 5% of people will definitely not take this suggestion into consideration. However, if you are among the other 95%, then skydiving should be one of the top things to try out. This is not something that you will be trying out more than once, so it would be really magical if you did this with your partner for the first time.
4. Bungee jumping’s also an option
Even though skydiving is booked for the brave, if you’re not scared of heights but still do not want to jump out of a plane, you can try bungee jumping with your partner. If you choose a great destination (one that is not only popular for bungee jumping, but rather for both bungee jumping and its beauty), why not try it out? This is also an activity that can be paired with a trip as there are amazing bungee jumping destinations all over the world. Imagine jumping from the Navajo Bridge in Arizona!
5. Time travel
We still haven’t invented time travel (or we have but we don’t know about it, perhaps Keanu Reeves knows?) but time traveling is one of the options that sound very interesting. Even though it is physically impossible to time travel, you can always opt to go to a cafe or a place that is rather retro. For the full experience, dress appropriately and behave in the manner people behaved back then. If you want to travel physically but also in time, take a look at the following tip.
6. San Francisco realness
Traveling to San Francisco perhaps equals time travel, but in gay language. This city has been the cradle of gay culture as we know it today, and being such, it is a place where every single gay bar is important for some reason. Opting to go on a gay and cultural trip and actually seeing how the LGBTQ rights came to be is an amazing and a very adventurous idea.
7. Opt for gay dance parties
There is nothing more adventurous than sitting in your car or buying a plane ticket and heading to some of the best gay parties in the world. Of course, you will be able to find these on every single continent, you just need to do a bit of research. So, find the one that is closest to you, and go there to party the whole night away with your loved one.
8. Organize a picnic
If nothing else, we can find beautiful landscapes anywhere we turn. Just take a look outside of the city and you will find dozens of pretty villages, forests, river banks and other places where you can host the most romantic picnic ever. See the sunset and then start your car and head home. It is a day well-spent in nature, so it’s not only romantic, it’s healthy as well!
9. Catch an open-air cinema
If you want to be old-school, put on your roller skates (just to be in the ‘80s fashion) and find an open-air cinema where you can go to. If you can find a drive-in cinema, even better. These are not only good because you get to watch a movie in a new and unusual way under the stars, but it’s also great because it can be rather private as there’s only to be two of you in the car.
10. Treasure hunt
This might not be the most “adventurous” activity of them all, but it’s one that is going to boggle your mind and infuse it with mystery! Treasure hunts and similar room escape games (there are some that are organized in open space) are not only interesting, but can also serve as great team-building activities. You can take another couple or your best friends and make a team! The choice is yours.
There are so many different activities that you can opt for only if you open your mind just a bit. The final piece of advice – do something that you will never do again! Try something for the first time with your partner, and make your relationship even stronger!
