    Not sure about a walking vacation but my husband and I walk together pretty much everyday for the past 30 years. It’s the highlight of our day!

      I love this! I know so many people who walk in groups, but I haven’t heard much about husband and wives! It’s such a valuable way to stay connected. My hubs and I do the same (have you read Travel Magic Postcards yet (here’s the link: http://amzn.to/1rqZcGx )?) The walking groups I participate in are heavy with women, and I love to hear about ways to include men.
