Despite being in various long-term relationships, I can’t say I’ve ever really been on a proper “romantic getaway” before. I’m not a hugely romantic person but you never know what being whisked away to far off shores could do to a gal! I’m yet to find that one out (and I wouldn’t personally consider a week on a boat on the Norfolk Broads a “romantic getaway”, as fun as it was) but a girl can dream, right? From Thailand to Australia, Paris to Austria, I think anywhere has the potential to be the perfect destination for a romantic getaway, depending on your own personal preferences. Where one couple might find sky-diving and jet-skiing romantic activities to do together, another might not (I certainly would not…) So, if I had my way, money was no object and I could deal with heat a little better than I’m currently doing right now in this ridiculous UK heatwave, here is my wish-list of romantic getaway destinations!
I’m not a huge traveler in the sense that you probably won’t ever find me backpacking around Thailand or moving to Australia for a year. Firstly, those places are far too hot for my delicate ginger complexion but mostly, it’s just not my sort of thing. I love a holiday – as most of us do – but lengthy travel isn’t for me. However, lately, I’ve discovered that there are plenty of places I would absolutely love to visit. In an ideal world, if I were to win a hefty amount on the lottery, I’d certainly be booking some holidays and short breaks to the places in this list. But in the meantime, I can just dream. Here’s my 2018 travel bucket list (or where I’d go if I won the lottery!)
