The intinerary needn’t cover every minute, but you’ll want a general idea of what you’re going to be doing if only to know what to pack. One thing that shouldn’t be left to chance: find a couple of romantic spots in the local area that you want to share with your partner. It might be a restaurant, a beautiful spot with scenery you can’t get anywhere else, or something you can only experience there.
4. Something many couples forget when they’re planning their romantic getaway is to make sure they aren’t bringing along any unnecessary worries from home. If you can, leave valuables in a safe deposit box back home, and don’t check work email, or take non-emergency calls from work while you’re on a trip that’s supposed to be about your lover. Try out pet sitters, babysitters, and housesitters on a short getaway so that when you get the chance to take a longer trip there are no lingering fears that will distract you from enjoying your time together.
5. Last, but not least, plan to steam up your hotel room a little bit. After a long plane flight, a relaxing, sexy evening in the hotel may be the perfect way to recover. Order some champagne or a bottle of wine and room service, and enjoy each other. After all, that’s why you went on the romantic getaway, isn’t it?
