With the New Year on its way, many of us are making new resolutions to get out more in 2013 and explore everything that the romantic world has to offer.
And it is especially nice to be able to do this with someone. So, where can you can your significant other head off to in the next 12 months? All you need is a few helpful suggestions for things for couples to do in the UK and around the world!
Plan a spa break
You men may think that spas and beauty treatments are exclusively for women but you’d be wrong. Many spas now cater to male guests and there are a number of beneficial treatments you can try together. Why not get a relaxing couples massage therapy in Culver City, CA (or in a nearby location) and unwind in each other’s company? Or take to the Jacuzzi and melt away all your week-day stress. Many spas are also inside hotels so you can book accommodation and dinner as well. If reading this is already taking your imagination to the bliss and relaxation you’ll get to experience, then this is definitely something you need!
When it comes to getting away from it all with someone you love, you don’t have to travel far. There are plenty of destinations around the world for anyone looking for a perfect romantic weekend away. While Edinburgh has a rich culture and heritage and some of the country’s best restaurants and bars to enjoy, Arizona is home to some of the world’s most spectacular natural beauty, including the Grand Canyon.
With its breathtaking views, desert scenery, and unique wildlife, Arizona is a great destination for a romantic getaway. Brighton, on the other hand, has the added bonus of being near the coast and so makes the perfect summer spot. A city break is the perfect destination for those looking to get out of the hustle and bustle of daily life but still want things to keep them entertained.
There are many places to explore the diverse history across the country, and some of the most well-known and informative can be found in London. The Natural History Museum is ideal for couples who are looking to delve into the past together, while the Tate Modern offers a touch of refinement and artistic expression to your trip. There are also many great tourist spots to explore, such as Piccadilly Circus, the Sherlock Holmes Museum, and the Tower of London.
In the US, the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is a popular destination for couples exploring history, while the Guggenheim Museum in New York City provides an opportunity to appreciate art. In Australia, the Australian Museum in Sydney is a great resource for learning about the country’s history, while the Art Gallery of New South Wales is a must-see for art enthusiasts.
Curl up at home
This may sound like a cop-out but how many of us actually spend a whole weekend curled up at home in front of the fire without ending up doing something grown-up and responsible, like tidying, cleaning, or household odd jobs? The answer is, not many; so why not take this opportunity to regress back to your teenage years and simply veg out? Get some favourite films together, splash out on a takeaway, and stay in your pyjamas the whole time if you fancy it! And if you’re feeling a little adventurous, explore each other and stretch the boundaries of the bedroom. Think of your wildest fantasies and make them come true; if you’ve always wanted to try kinky equipment like sex swings that you can use almost anywhere around the house, go for it and experience new levels of ecstasy!
The Great Outdoors
After spending five days a week coping up in an office or shop from 9 am until 5 pm, you may be feeling sluggish and lethargic when the weekend rolls around. It can be tempting to stay in bed all weekend (see tip number 4!) but if you feel like getting a spring back in your step, why not venture into the great unknown and explore the countryside? From Snowdonia to Scarborough, there are some wonderful walks and hikes to enjoy across the country and all you need is a pair of boots, a map, and your significant someone to hold your hand.
