Have you been missing out on quality alone time with your special someone lately? Not enough vacation days to spend a summer away? Here are few mini-vacations you can take and rekindle the flame while getting some proper holiday fun.

Napa Valley, California

Known for its vineyards and greenery, Napa is a great place to spend a weekend or so, enjoying the quiet and calm of the serene fields and hills. You can go wine tasting or tour the wineries and vineyards yourself. Learn about the process of winemaking and get involved too, from picking the perfect grapes all the way to the table for a candlelit dinner. This is one popular romantic retreat that people flock to from all over the world.

The Alps

There are plenty of Alpine ski resorts and private lodges you can visit with your significant other, and you can get some quiet time alone or hit the slopes. Have some hot chocolate by a fire, or get a couple massage. Enjoy the sights and the silence, and breathe the cool fresh mountain air. This trip is good for a vacation and also for your health!

Sweden

This country is famous for its snowy mountains, forests and lakes, but the best way to enjoy a romantic retreat here is at a spa getaway, and you can do it all in a couple of days. Treat yourselves to a massage for couples, check out the saunas, and take a dip in the world famous hot springs, which are said to have healing properties.

Brazil – Carnival

Carnival is a Brazilian festival that occurs for five days before Ash Wednesday, and if what you want is fun, excitement, and action, this is definitely the trip you want to make. See and take part in the parades, watch the samba dancers, and taste the wide range of Latin street food.

The Great Barrier Reef

If you and your partner are moved by nature, this is one immediate must-see, especially as the environmental damage means it won’t last much longer. Go snorkeling or scuba diving and see all the marine life, the world renowned colorful fish and coral. The coastal resorts will also be perfect for that alone time you’ve been needing.

All these places make a good vacation for two and they’re both affordable and brief enough for when you just don’t have enough days off from work! Best of all, online booking has made it easy, even for last minute reservations, for you and your partner to make the most of your holiday.
