Where are the world’s most romantic destinations? I asked, YOU answered!
Happy Valentine’s Day! While I could go on and on about the commercialization of love and how much sub par chocolates we all buy on this day, I’ll save my cynicism and instead treat you to something a little nicer. Hehe.
As I’ll be celebrating Single’s Awareness Day this year, I thought I’d ask our Facebook followers and friends where the most romantic places they’ve ever been were. From personal hideaways in hometowns to the ever stunning Paris, there was a wide range of what people thought of as romantic. Here’s some of the choices from you all on the most romantic places in the world!
Unsurprisingly a number of you mentioned Venice. It’s one of those places that you think can’t live up to the centuries of hype it’s got, but no… it really can. It’s an exquisite place that instantly captures your heart. A sunset walk along the canals is very romantic.
“The southwest coast of Ireland, especially near the Dingle Peninsula. It’s breathtakingly beautiful and wild and unsullied by touristy stuff.” – Jacquelynn
“Charleston. In the early part of our relationship, my husband and I stayed there at our friend’s house. I’ve never been so wooed by the explanation of Civil War history in the city, including the details of battles as I was by the fireplace, whilst the Christmas tree twinkled, and Hootie and the Blowfish played. Fond memories…and the feel of the old house. Still one of my treasured moments.” – Carlina
“There are areas of rural North Wales where the world and all its problems seem a million miles away, where the natural beauties of this planet are close and immediate and real, and where happiness and contentment soak into your soul from the surroundings. Romance – in the broadest and most fundamental meaning of the term – is in the very fabric of these places, in the earth and the air, in the water and the mountains.” – Bert
“I personally think Prague is the most romantic place I’ve been too. I used to cross Charles bridge every night, under the winter sky and stars, and love it. That was 18 years ago and in a month I’ll get to share it with my husband.” – Magaly
“The canals in Amsterdam.” – Scott, “Amsterdam for me.” – Kurt
“Most cities and towns in Italy especially in Tuscany, but also Sicily… There are way too many to name.” – Gabrielle, “Tuscany.” – Elizabeth
“Bruges, Belgium. It’s a very silly place.” – Lyndsay
So what I gathered from everyone is that to be romantic, a place should have canals. I must say, I agree. Do you?
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
