Destination Romance

Nothing says romance like whisking your partner away on a last-minute short break. Reconnect and reignite the spark between you both this Valentines…

IF your mantra is “there are never enough hours in the day” then you probably don’t have much time to relax, and even less time to pamper yourself.

So many couples are inundated with information overload and way too much ‘activity insanity’ trying to keep up with their own schedule and their children’s schedules. Have you considered the toll this is taking on your relationship with your loved one? The lack of together time can do major damage to the foundation the two of you have invested in building your relationship.

Of course you’re busy these days, and as responsibilities pile up on your calendar, it can be hard to pay attention to the smaller things that make life enjoyable, but let’s be real. If you don’t make the time, you will find romance slipping away and before you know it, your relationship will be as cold as a bag of frozen chips.

If your relationship is in a rut and you need to reignite the spark of romance, then a romantic getaway this Valentines is just what the doctor ordered — the love doctor, that is. Few things can give your relationship a shot of adrenaline better than a romantic holiday.

Time to reconnect

Quality time together is essential for keeping romance alive. A romantic break slows you both down and allows you to step out of the daily rat race. You can then move at the same tempo. You have time to talk and share what’s important to each of you.

Conversation is at a whole new level of intimacy when you’re holding hands strolling along a sun-dappled forest trail or sharing a Guinness, snuggled up in front of a open fire in a country pub in the middle of nowhere – with no mobile signal.

Go ahead, be romantic

Sharing a few days together creating lasting memories is money well spent. The gifts of time, love and care are some of the most meaningful gifts you can give to your significant other.

Pull at your heartstrings

A romantic getaway is the best way to break into your partner’s heart and lower their inhibitions. Your loved one is more relaxed away from home without the pressure of daily responsibilities.

Try giving each other a sensual massage. The magic of touch is a wonderful way to connect. Plus, it’s a great way to ease into an evening of romance.

Rekindle your passion

Sometimes, the daily grind of life does not leave much energy for a night of passion. A romantic break gives you the time to enjoy each other anytime of day or all day. Sharing breakfast in bed, swimming together in the hotel pool and a candlelight bath are a few ways to rekindle the passion.

Do not disturb

As long as those ‘sparks’ of romance are flickering, a little time away just might be the ticket to create a full-blown, night of Barry White-style loving.

Ready to go? Try booking a night, a weekend or even a full week this Valentines. And don’t feel like you have to have ‘deep pockets’. You can romance your sweetheart in luxury or on a shoestring budget. There’s a romantic escape in every price range.
