Valentine’s Day Travel without Leaving Home

 

As Valentine’s Day approaches, many of us may not have the money to travel to a romantic destination, but be encouraged, you can bring the destination to your home. This is just what I have to do this year. My husband and I have just had our first child and he is three months old. As you will learn from reading this blog, we had been blessed to have traveled to exotic international locations and have had spontaneous get-aways. Now we are adjusting to life with an infant and getting two hours alone, let alone traveling, is much more of an ordeal.

Creating a romantic travel destination at home is simple:

  1. Decide on your romantic location. Pick a location that you can create a romantic theme around. For instance, imagine that you are on a gondola in Italy. Or, perhaps you are on an art tour in Barcelona, Spain—choose a setting that speaks to your heart and inspires your creative and passionate side.
  2. Create a meal from the culture of your location. If you decide to transport your date to New Orleans, for example, then you might stew up a big pot of gumbo. Visit one a recipe site (i.e. www.allrecipes.com ) and learn how to serve up delicious food and big points with your loved one. Don’t forget about including a delicious dessert!
  3. Create the ambiance. Go ahead and download music reminiscent of your location’s culture. Using New Orleans as a theme again, giving inexpensive beads that can be picked up at any dollar or party store, will help to set the stage. You can also select many of the romantic and peppy jazz tunes to set the mood.
  4. Enjoy! I know that we will!
