5 Sweet Spots Around The World For A Valentine’s Day Getaway
It’s that special time of year again, when the drug stores fill with candy hearts and everyone starts making sappy googly eyes at their love. It’s the perfect time to take bae out of the city and on a private adventure for just the two of you. Here are five picks for Valentine’s Day trips with your travel partner-in-crime.
1. Yummy Treats in Brussels, Belgium
Yes, history, yes beautiful architecture. But foodie duos, hit up Brussels for some sweet treats. We’re talking waffles, maybe topped with some ice cream, maybe some caramel sauce. And you know the best part of traveling as a couple? You get to order two of everything and try more flavors. Besides flights and waffle-expenses, set aside about $80 for an Airbnb or the same for a hotel room (if you’re willing to do some searching).
2. Beach Time in St. Lucia
Picture yourself and your bae on horseback. It’s sunset and the colors reflect off the beautiful Caribbean water. Yeah, the beaches of St. Lucia are pretty prime for a Valentine’s Day trip. Hotels range from a big all-inclusive splurge to 4-star hotels around $150 to $200, depending on your V-Day budget.
3. Coziness in Scotland
We’re feeling the Highlands for February this year. It’s time to really embrace the cozy life with your sweetie and cuddle up in a Scottish B&B ($65 and above). Wander the wilderness, get some local whisky to toast to your love and return back to your warm and toasty room for some couple time.
4. Outdoor Adventures in South Island, New Zealand
Looking for an outdoor adventure for your romantic escape? New Zealand, y’all. The Abel Tasman Coast Track is a beach-bound hike requiring camping on the sand (free lodging!). It can be a two to five-day journey, with as many swimming breaks as you want.
5. Wine Tasting in Ribera del Duero, Spain
Snow-covered vineyards and a glass of red wine – bring on the romance! The Spanish wine district of Ribera del Duero has more than 270 wineries, some even housed in historic castles (staying in a castle-like hotel runs around $100). Who knows, the locale might even inspire you to return for another momentous occasion… Do we hear wedding bells?
