Romantic Getaways - Let the Sparks Fly
by: Shari Hearn

Here’s a little pearl of wisdom about relationships: if you think it’s time to get away to put a little spark in your love life, it is. And if you don’t think it’s needed, take one anyway. A little romantic getaway never hurt any relationship.

Planning a romantic getaway can help to strengthen your relationship. For many couples, the problems they face on a daily basis are due to not being able to communicate easily between each other. A getaway for just the two of you enables you to talk with one another without the distractions of daily life. And, if you have children, some adult time alone can help you remember what attracted you to each other in the first place.

Where might you consider taking this romantic getaway?

A Tropical Island

There’s something about a tropical island that just says romance. Maybe it’s the water. Maybe it’s the sun. Maybe it’s tenderly applying suntan lotion on each others’ bodies. A few tropical locations you might consider are:

Barbados: Barbados is an eastern Caribbean island sometimes referred to as the “lover’s paradise.” If walking with your loved one along miles of unbroken sand beaches appeals to you, then Barbados is for you. While there try one of the local sunset cruises on a yacht or tall ship.

Tahiti: Tahiti is often referred to as “the most beautiful island in the world.” (Of course, maybe people in Barbados would disagree). Located in the Pacific Ocean, just below the Equator, Tahiti feels like it was made for romantic getaways, with numerous resorts offering themed activities just for couples.

Jamaica: Jamaica’s another vacation spot with numerous resorts just for adults. One such resort worth mentioning is Hedonism III in Runaway Bay. Here you’ll find swim-up rooms, a Roman tub in every room, and a see-through slide that snakes through the disco.

A Cabin in the Woods

Another great choice for a romantic getaway is a cabin in the woods. Reconnecting with one another in front of a crackling fire in the fireplace is just downright romantic. You can choose a wooded area close to home, or, if you’re feeling adventurous, try the Pocono Mountains in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The Poconos is a mountain resort area which caters to couples, often referred to as “The Honeymoon Capital of the World".

Return to Your Original Honeymoon Hotel

Want to re-experience the magic of your honeymoon? Try going back to your honeymoon hotel. You may find the trip is even more romantic than the first time you made it. You might even go back to restaurants you ate at the first time, or take the same walks. The key is to remember the honeymoon while staying in the present moment, knowing that you may be older and a little more stressed with daily life, but the sparks still exist between you.

Bring the Romance Home

The key to making your home a romantic getaway is to treat it like a vacation. Well, okay, without the packing. You have to unplug your phone and let your friends and family know you are on vacation. Once your "at home" vacation starts, here are some things you may want to include to add to the experience:

-go to the library or a bookstore, pick out a book you both like, and read it out loud to each other while sitting on your back porch, or by the fireplace.

-give one another a massage while listening to soothing music.

-take a romantic walk to watch the sunset.

-rent a documentary about a foreign city you always wanted to visit, like Florence, and afterwards have dinner at a local restaurant that serves the cuisine you would find in that city.

-watch a romantic movie and fall asleep in each other's arms.

Remember, a relationship sometimes needs a little tending to help keep it romantic. A romantic getaway helps. You can also keep the romance alive after your getaway by occasionally scheduling a “date night” with one another where you go to a special restaurant, watch the sunset or do…whatever.
