Ask a million people what they think Valentine’s Day is all about and a lot of them would tell you that it’s all about chocolates, red wine, and flowers. But Valentine’s Day is more than that, or at least to me, it is. It is a day to share with the one closest to your heart. Valentine’s day is about re-kindling the sparks of the very first day you realized you wanted to be with your partner. It is a time to strengthen your love and get even closer than you have been. It is a lot more than just the date, it is about the feeling.
And what better way to reconnect than going on a ‘baecation’ with your significant other? There are plenty of beautiful places you could visit this love season. And below is just a little summary of some of the places you should consider taking the love of your life.
