Think of this. Both you and your partner are away for a few days, deep in the woods, enjoying each other’s company. Does it sound too good to be true? If that is the case, then you will want to go on a romantic getaway?
Yes, we are talking about going on a romantic camping trip. What better way to help you forget the struggles and pains of your everyday life? When you are with your loved one, you tend to forget everything that bothers you in your life.
Surrounded by nature, staying inside your tent and doing something romantic like reading romantic books, or listening to music sounds ideal. Perhaps, you can also consider taking a dip in a nearby lake or pond, with your partner.
You will need to change your mindset
The first thing to do when planning on a romantic getaway is to change your mindset. You will need to think of the color green and the nature around you. The need to break your bank account or burn a deep hole in your pocket is not there.
It is just like sipping hot coffee or tea and indulging in your favorite snacks in the comfort of your room. The only difference being, you will do that in the midst of nature, with the chirping of birds, the presence of large trees, and absolute silence.
You will need to ensure that you pack up all the essentials you will need for your perfect vacation. Some questions might arise in your mind, where will you answer natures call, how will you cook food, and sleep.
We will help you find the answers. All you need to do is to read the below carefully.
You need to pack up your double sleeping bag
What is the point of going on a romantic getaway when you have to sleep separately in your sleeping bag? Of course, you can relax and get good sleep, but when you are looking for some romance, then a queen-sized sleeping bag is called for. It is not expensive and can be purchased from a traditional or online store. They come in a wide range of colors and patterns. Depending on your preferences and requirements, you can purchase them.
A decent camera
These days, you can find cameras of different shapes and features. Depending on your budget, you will want to take a decent camera along. It could be your partner sipping something hot or cold by the fire, few candid pictures during the trip and so on.
The idea to have the pictures as memories and perhaps, motivates yourself to go on a romantic trip again shortly. We would suggest a Polaroid camera as it is not too expensive and helps you take instant pictures.
The location for your camping trip
The need to travel to a faraway destination for your romantic trip is not required, when you can plan something nearby. Though most camping grounds are fully occupied during the summer and autumn season, you can find few camps that are sparsely occupied.
You do not want to be camping around screaming kids and adults are running around here and there, 100 feet away from you both. A search on the Internet can give you locations, which are romantic and come with beautiful sceneries. Perhaps, a romantic location with a mountain nearby, where you can view the sunrise and sunset, might be a good idea.
You might want to plan some romantic activities
This is when you might want to come up with activities, which can be done by couples. It could be kayaking, backpacking, or taking a dip in a nearby lake or pond. The need to do something adventurous is not always there as you can think of something peaceful too.
Perhaps, if there is a boat ride nearby, you can think of going on one. Just in the company of each other, listening to your favorite music or reading a book is also romantic and pleasant. The idea is to get away from your routine tasks and think of something that helps you both to get to know each other.
Have plans for preparing something special for your man/woman
Though you are deep in the woods, it does not mean, you cannot have a meal that can help increase your bonding. Most of the camping grounds have facilities for barbeque and fire. However, some grounds do not permit the use of firewood.
You will need to take prior permission or make use of alternatives. The need to do something complex is not there, but you can think of preparing something special for your special person. It could be his/her favorite dish or something special for a special occasion.
Have some element of surprise for your partner
Lastly, have some element of surprise for your partner post-dinner or before you retire to bed. It gives a special meaning to the trip and enables you to show, how much you love your partner. It could be anything. A gift that is not expensive, but something that he/she loves and would cherish their whole life. This way, your partner would appreciate your effort and time, which you put in to ensure that this romantic trip was worth it.
As you can see, camping can be romantic. With the right gear and the right plans, you can create more than a little romance for the one you love. With a little bit of information and preparation, you can have a fun filled romantic camping with your partner.
There are certain things in life, which you ought to do, and going out on a camping trip, just with your partner to tag along, is one of them. Of course, you will need to make sure that you pack up the items mentioned above to ensure that the trip is wholesome and romantic indeed. I hope you found this article useful.
