I have always enjoyed combining my love for other things in life such as surfing, wine drinking and climbing but there is something else that I like to combine with my travels, romance. Throughout the years, my partner and I have been to some of the most romantic spots in the world and I wanted to share a few of them with you. If you are looking for inspiration as to where to take your loved one for your next trip, here are some passionate places where you could go.
They call Paris the city of love and very often these titles are not lived up to, Paris thankfully, most definitely does. There is just something in the air in the French capital which you can’t put your finger on, but most certainly feel, love really is in the air here. I love Paris because of the sights such as the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame cathedral, as well as the romantic activities which you can do. Float with your loved one down the Seine at sunset, lovelock one of its bridges, drink red wine in a hidden away bistro and kiss under the Arc de Triomphe, the perfect city for lovers.
Turks and Caicos Islands
The Caribbean has plenty of perfect getaways for couples but the pick of the bunch for me is the Turks and Caicos islands. This place is pure paradise, the straight-out-of-a-postcard sort of location where you can relax in each others company in pure bliss. These quiet islands give you the chance of complete seclusion, surrounded by white beaches, palm trees and crystal ocean. Paradise should be enjoyed by lovers which makes the Turks and Caicos a perfect destination.
Of all the Greek islands it is Santorini that steals the show, the jewel in the crown of the Aegean sea, this small island offers plenty for getaway couples. Santorini ‘s houses and villas which hug the coast are the whitewashed buildings which you normally see when people talk about Greece. I really liked the choice between seclusion and getting involved here in Santorini and aside from the amazing food, my partner and I really enjoyed getting involved in the local culture.
There is absolutely nothing to dislike about the Maldives, sat deep in the heart of the Indian Ocean you can stay in small, secluded huts above the water, on your own slice of the planet. The idea of a romantic getaway for me is a little adventure with lots of time spent enjoying my partners company. If this sounds like your idea of romance too, then the Maldives is the best option for your getaway.
Italy offers a huge amount of places for romantic getaways but Florence has to be my favorite. This was the classic Italy that I had seen in movies, a city with art throughout the streets, good food, music, dancing, Florence really had it all. As far as romance goes, it doesn’t get more romantic than sitting in an ornate square, listening to opera and drinking a fresh white wine with your partner, and that is why Florence is perfect.
