Romantic Escape: Budget-Friendly Options for the Thrifty CoupleInk Well Mag June 28, 2016 0 COMMENTS
Whenever romantic holidays are mentioned, most Australians immediately think of Thailand or Bali. These destinations are indeed more affordable options compared to others. But getaways shared by lovers don’t always have to be at the beach. You can take your significant other to simple and affordable places and still have fun together.
Here are some options you may want to think about:
A simple Google search will show you the best hotels in your area that don’t cost much. Instead of leaving town, stay in your preferred hotel for a couple of days, maybe over the weekend. For working couples, this is a great option that doesn’t require them to drive or fly and be gone for a long time or spend too much money. Before you argue that you’d rather stay at home, consider that being in a hotel means ordering room service, swimming in the hotel pool and generally relaxing in a different environment. No food to cook or dishes to do. No nosy neighbours, either.
There are spots in Brisbane and other areas that are great for a short skiing holiday. Visit a snow shop in Brisbane and rent some gear. You can do this for a day or two. Don’t forget to bring your camera or smartphone. Snowcapped mountains are always great for selfie backgrounds.
Not a big fan of lounging around in a hotel or skiing in the mountains? How about biking? The great part about biking is you can do it around the city as a form of exercise and bonding experience. You can also do it in the woods or just about anywhere a mountain bike can handle. To add to the excitement, talk about destinations, like a specific food truck or maybe a camping ground. This is a great option for couples who are into an active lifestyle. You can even bike to a romantic location and watch the sunset together.
There are many options if you’re looking for a way to spend time with your significant other without spending too much money or traveling too far. All you need is some imagination.
