Taking Trips for Two
“Traveling is like falling in love, the world is made new again,” wrote Emily Dickinson. The true beauty about taking a trip with your best friend and love is that you can experience yourselves in a different place, in a different moment in time, doing different activities together and see romance grow in a different way. Here are some places where you might want to travel to and see for yourself.
Lake Tahoe, California
As a romantic destination, the lake, pine trees, mountains and year-round seasonal weather is maybe a perfect spot to share with your love. In summer there is water skiing, boating, hiking and horseback riding. In winter, there is snow skiing, snow boarding, curling up by a fire, delightful cuisine, and casino resorts all along the 72 miles of shoreline of this breathtaking lake. Celebrity entertainment abounds at many resorts, and there are diverse genres of musical performances for the two of you to enjoy at a concert.
On the exotic island of Kau’ai, couples will find the fragrance of white and pink blooms among the Plumeria trees like something out of heaven. Incredibly lush vegetation make this apt-named Garden Island and exploration into the “old Hawaii” where big cities doesn’t exist. You can stay at a coffee plantation hotel where macadamia nut pancakes are served. There is kayaking, swimming, golf and attend a festive luau (try the poi) where native entertainers juggle flaming torches and island princesses hula dance in real grass skirts. Rainbows appear daily in this 83 degree tropical climate and romantic walks in the rain are sure to bring color to your love life luck!
The City of Light and Love awaits any couple seeking a French vacation, where outdoor cafes, espresso and fine wines grace the tables for diners amid the narrow streets of old architecture from a time past. Take a walk towards the L’arc de Triomphe along the main boulevard of the Champs Elysees and marvel at the outdoor magic that makes this city popular. The cuisine is renowned, whether at the small bistro or a grand dining room. Take a trip to the top of the Tour l’eiffel to dine and enjoy a glass of champagne from the top observatory that offers the most extraordinary view of the city 360 degrees. Say “Je t’aime!” to your partner and experience true joi de vie!
Vumbura Reserve, North Africa
A trip to a safari lodge offers a variety of wildlife activities. Take in extraordinary scenery from a Nippy Delta Boat. Navigate in a 4-wheel-drive Range Rover to view open game country to observe the surrounding plains and wild animals. Tented suites underneath indigenous trees exude the ambiance of an true wildlife preserve. Go on a safari where you can view animals of over 100 species in their natural habitat. Private and quiet, the night sky you will allow you to view millions of stars like never before. Curl up by an open fire the one you’re with; experience what life is like on the wild plains of Africa together.
Wherever you may choose to get away from it all as a couple, a renewal of the reasons you have for choosing your partner will only progress in a new place to be yourself!
