My husband and I love to travel and to be honest, given the chance we’d be travelling every day! We have done a lot of travel this year and we are currently in the hold period between trips, so we’re saving hard for the next adventure. We have cut back on all sorts because we’d rather spend our money on the experiences when we travel, so with Valentine’s coming up, we made the decision to stay in! Which as you can imagine is hard. Luckily for us, eShores Travel sent us a little Valentine’s culinary treat to have at home. Best of both worlds!

Staying in is the new going out

The thing with travel is that once you start you can’t stop. It was funny, the other day I was reminiscing with my friend about myself 10 or more years ago and I didn’t travel much. How could I not travel?! It’s crazy, because I pretty much spend my days planning my next adventure.

eShores romance

We had this gorgeous hamper delivered full of Italian goodies, and real Italian goodies! This is in honour of the romantic holidays that eShore Travel offer, which takes you to the most romantic European destinations. For us, travelling is not possible during Valentine’s but eShores Travel wanted us to experience a little romance at home, inspired by the destinations – Paris, Venice and Rome.

With our romantic night in we decided to take some tips from eShore about the Importance of Romantic Holidays. We obviously took the idea of putting phones away as one of the main things to do. We also cooked together, which is quite a rare occurance for us!

eShores Valentine’s food

It was a wonderful excuse to stay in and nice to remind myself of why I love Italy and Italian food! A classic pasta dish is easy to do, but 100 times better when you have the best ingredients… can you imagine how good this would be actually in Rome? Maybe next Valentine’s Day we’ll be having a romantic Italian meal in Rome!

If you’re looking to get away for a long romantic weekend then take a look at some of the perfect destinations for a lovely getaway. I mean, who knows love better than the Italians? Okay, maybe the French? Whichever you chose, these destinations are the ideal spot for couples.
