Oh hello there, Valentine’s Day. Nice to see you again.
It seems as though there are two kinds of people in this world: those that love Valentine’s Day and those that think it’s a silly materialistic holiday. As for me, you can find me in the former group of folks surrounded by flowers, a glass of rose’, some chocolate-covered strawberries, and more likely than not, many different shades of the color pink.
Because love is in the air — or maybe that’s just the smell of the Valentines cookies baking — I’ve compiled a list of some of the most romantic places we’ve explored so far. These divine destinations are the epitome of a romantic getaway; so grab yourself a glass of wine (hey it’s five o’clock somewhere) and lets explore!
Mo’orea, French Polynesia
Of course I had to start this list with the most romantic place on earth. Overwater bungalows, jungles straight out of Tarzan, and a crystal clear lagoon set the stage for an enchanted tropical adventure. Everything about Mo’orea is magical and during our stay it often felt as though we were living in a fairy-tale.
NaPali Coast, Kauai, Hawaii
Okay, full disclosure on this one: We were engaged along the NaPali Coast. Baised. Perhaps, but a sunset sail along that chiseled emerald coastline and you’ll be swooning, too. As the saying goes, “All you need is love and a sunset.” 🙂
U.S. Virgin Islands
Could it be any more romantic to spend the day sailing around the U.S. Virgin Islands? I think not. The bluest of waters, bright-green islands dotting the horizon, and a beautiful sailboat all sound like something found within the glossy pages of any travel magazine; however don’t be fooled, this isn’t a magazine spread, its real life. Grab a few beverages, kick up your feet, and wait for the sunset. You can thank me later. 😉
There’s a reason why Maui is ranked one of the top Honeymoon destinations in the world: fantastic beaches, incredible snorkeling, fancy resorts, and an abundance of delicious restaurants are just a few of the highlights. Simply put, Maui has it all.
Did you think that all of my favorite romantic destinations would include bikini attire? 🙂 I knew that I would love Norway because of my family ties to the country, yet I never expected that the tiny town of Geiranger would sweep me off of my feet. This small nordic town at the end of the fjord is filled with charm and beckons visitors to explore. Take a leisurely afternoon stroll (hand in hand, of course) and see what treasures you’ll uncover.
