Romance travel is my niche in the travel industry. Most of my clients are honeymooners, or couples having a destination wedding, or married couples that are celebrating 5, 10, 20 years or more, together. Increasingly, I am getting married couples with children that are wanting to go on vacation together. Just the two of them…no children! The benefits of parents traveling without kids can be profound, not only for their own relationship but for their children. Speaking from personal experience, my husband and I take a week every year to travel together without our daughter. It’s relaxing, we get plenty of alone time, and we keep up with our daughter via social media when my mother or sister are posting pictures of her antics.
Romantic travel getaways are a time for relaxation and rejuvenation, but it is also a time to cross those things off of your bucket list that you can’t do on a family vacation. I recently had two single mothers travel together to Costa Rica for 8 nights. They spent every day hiking the mountains, ziplining the tree canopy, conquering fears on the hanging bridges, and enjoying adult drinks and dancing in the evening. For the past two years I have had parents of 2 young children spend a week in Hawaii climbing Mt. Haleakala, learning to surf, and snorkeling with the sea turtles. As soon as their children are old enough they want to stay at Disney Aulani and share in new family experiences on a Hawaiian Island they have yet to visit.
I see many couples wanting to experience local cuisine, cooking classes, and more! The whole reason to getaway together is to experience the world together. Where will you and your spouse go next? Let me assist you in booking your next adventure!
