Gorgeous Destinations For A Perfect Romantic Weekend

Cities like Paris, Rome, and New York City have always been right up there as top choices for people who are looking to get away for a romantic weekend.

As much as those cities are amazing, and I will never say no to going back to Paris, there are some other destinations that are equally beautiful, charming, and will make even the coldest of you feel all romantic and fuzzy.

These places don’t get as much credit as they deserve – especially when it comes to romantic city breaks, but I’ve included them to give you some inspiration and allow you to try out some new places that may just become your favourite.

Amsterdam

This is a shock for most people who have never been there, and even a few who have, but I assure you that Amsterdam has far more to offer than coffee shops and ladies in windows. For such a small, compact city, there’s truly something for everyone. Simply just walking around and admiring the quirky architecture of those buildings that look like they’re all about to fall into each other is a great way to spend the day taking in the delights of the city. At night, the canals are all lit up, so take a boat ride and book a package that includes dinner and drinks so you can enjoy the beautiful sights around you and have a romantic evening together in a unique place.

Prague

Anyone who’s been to Prague will agree that it’s truly a picture postcard city, no matter what time of year you visit. Things like eating out and the cost of beer and wine is extremely cheap in Prague, yet the quality is very high, and there’s nothing more romantic than taking an evening stroll around the delightful old town of this gorgeous city as you take in the unique buildings and gothic churches.

Vienna

One of my all time favourite cities has to be Vienna, and it also doesn’t get anywhere near as much credit as it deserves, but it’s absolutely worth it. Taking a walk around the center of Vienna and taking in the old town is one of the best ways to really get a feel for the city, because the architecture is simply spectacular, and with so much rich history, it truly is a city to get lost in. Music lovers and foodies will appreciate the Austrian capital more than most, so taking an evening to visit the Vienna Mozart Orchestra will honestly take you back in time. Famous for its amazing coffee, Sachertorte, which is a unique, rich chocolate cake, eating out in Vienna is something everyone should try. Coffee and cake are traditionally had before the main meal at lunchtime, so once you’ve sampled, then you can enjoy some freshly made Wiener Schnitzel and wash it down with a nice glass of wine or beer.

Venice

This one is pretty cliche in terms of romance, but it deserves a shout out because it truly is one of the most unique cities you’ll ever visit, and if romance is what you’re after, then Venice will always deliver. Once you arrive in Venice, you’ll probably be shocked to realise that it’s actually just a typical, modern European city – that is until you get to the old town. The old town can only be reached and left by boat, so once you’re there, you’re pretty much stuck – I could honestly think of worse places to be stuck. You access the old town by water taxi, which drops you off at one of the designated drop off points, and then you pretty much feel like you’ve gone back in time as you walk through the narrow streets and observing the old buildings overlooking the canals and gondolas sailing past. To make the most of your romantic weekend in Venice, then a ride on a gondola is a must – it doesn’t matter if it’s during the day or at night, there’s simply nothing more romantic and magical to do. Then take advantage of the many amazing restaurants the sinking city has to offer. If you want to get a spot overlooking the water, then it’s best to call ahead and reserve or ensure you visit at a quieter time, as these places are extremely popular.

So, there you have it. Of course, there are many other cities that could be on this list, but this should be enough to get you started when looking for something new. Really, though: where you go together is of less importance than actually being together and enjoying the quality time together. Whether you decide to book a hotel a few blocks from your house, or try out one of the cities above, then it’s always best to prepared for your trip as much as possible.

For example, if you’re going to a place with a nice hotel pool and spa, and you don’t want anything to prevent you enjoying it, then you could consider your options to delay your period with norethisterone, treating yourself to some nice new swimwear and lingerie, and even bringing along or ordering a nice bottle of wine or champagne and candles for your room to set the mood on arrival.

Girls In Their 20’s: Mistakes We Make Now Which Could Affect Our Long Term Health

It’s easy in our 20’s not to worry about our health. After all, we are so busy living our life that our health often goes on the backburner. But a lot of people look back with regret that they weren’t more on top of their health when they were younger. Here are some mistakes we make now which could affect our long term health!

Not talking to the doctor about your menstrual cycle

It’s common for girls to get irregular periods. After all, hormones can cause them to go a bit wayward. But if your menstrual cycle is a bit askew, it’s time to talk to your doctor. A lot of women just leave it, but then when they come to have children, they struggle to conceive. Therefore, you need to talk to your doctor sooner rather than later to find ways to get it back on track. For example, they might be able to put you on the contraceptive pill. Or you might have to change your diet to ensure your periods come on time. It’s better to sort it now before you have trouble when you want a baby.

Not being careful with your coffee intake

You need to be so careful when it comes to drinking coffee. A lot of us have several cups of the hot drink a day. But too much caffeine could cause you to have health trouble in years to come. For one thing, it can cause a rise in your blood pressure. And it can put you more at risk of heart attacks; even as a young adult! Therefore, you need to be careful to ensure you don’t drink too much coffee on a daily basis. Stick to healthier options such as green tea to stay healthy.

Not going to the doctors when we experience symptoms

A lot of us experience weird symptoms such as heartburn or breast pain and decide to just leave it for now. After all, we think it’s normal, and it will just pass. But if it’s something serious and you just leave it, you could end up getting ill shortly. Therefore, it’s so important that you tell your doctor about anything different to the norm that’s occurring in your body. And if you are struggling to find time to go to the doctors, you could always use an app such as Dr App. You can then speak to a professional doctor about your health worries without having to leave the house!

Not being careful when it comes to drinking

I think we are all guilty of drinking too much, especially at this time of the year. We promise ourselves we will cut back when it’s time for a new year. But if you are not careful with your boozing now, you might end up with long term health conditions. For one thing, you could damage your liver and end up needing a replacement in the future. Or you might even put on weight through drinking. Therefore, don’t always drink excessively when out on the town for the sake of your health.

And make sure you are getting enough exercise in your daily life. It’s so easy to just get home and chill out in front of Netflix. But you need to join the gym or head to an exercise class to stay in shape.
