A great start is planning your trip and choosing the destination that’s perfect for you both, whether you are keen on a local or international destination, ask yourself which appeals to us the most as a couple, is it the Ocean, sounds of the waves crashing and sipping on something refreshing as you gaze into the sunset, or are you keen on being surrounded by blue skies mountains and greenery, taking long walks holding hands and exploring hiking trails.
