People tend to roll their eyes when it comes to cliches, but not us. We see cliches as nothing but truisms and who doesn’t need to hear a truism once in awhile. This is especially when it comes to running away on a romantic city break. But forget Paris and Venice because the best of all the romantic cliches is New York City. Now you may be thinking that two people in love can make almost anything lovey-dovey, and you’d be right, but sometimes a big backdrop and a little scenery can take it to another level. Think you’re in love now, wait until you’ve stepped off one of the cheap flights to New York and experienced falling head over heels for each other in the Big Apple. So, without further ado, here is a list of the most romantic things you need to do on your escape together. Picnic Under Brooklyn Bridge Experiencing a view of Manhattan’s infamous skyline as evening falls is one of the most incredible things you will ever experience. This …

This week, let the alphabet be your inspiration: find a string of letters. Try a multi-photo gallery to collect images of single characters. Find some beautiful typography, or look for letters hidden in natural forms. I’m excited to see your ABCs! Love begins with yourself & is infinite thereafter. Once you find it, you can never lose it. Always choose Love – It will guide you on your journey in life. Stay true to yourself, your soul & your heart – Love Unconditionally, Always! 🙂 Photo Location: Shoreditch, London E1 To participate in this week’s photo challenge click here
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symbol.” This week, share a symbol with us, and tell us what it means to you. Recently I came across this very interesting question online: If you had to marry your partner where you first met – Where would you marry? The futuristic looking location above of Vauxhall, London, UK answers that very question as this is the location where I met someone very, very special 🙂 – To participate in this Week’s Photo Challenge head over here
These love locks can be spotted on the Dom Luís I Bridge in Porto, but you will most likely miss them, unless you actually look for them. I didn’t notice them until my second or third visit across the bridge. They are sort of subtle and hidden which makes them even more special. 🙂 I really like that there aren’t many of them.
If you have missed my previous 3 posts on the Second Day in Rome, you can read them here in this order: Second Day in Rome: A lot of Walking & Sightseeing Second Day in Rome: Piazza Navona Second Day in Rome: From Piazza Navona to Trevi Fountain The Trevi Fountain is one of the most famous fountains in the world and also one of the most romantic ones too. Currently the Trevi is going under a €2.2 million restoration which is funded by the Fendi fashion house and should be completed by Autumn 2015. I think a lot of people think of Paris first when they think of Valentine’s Day and where they would like to spend it with a loved one. I haven’t been to Paris yet, so I can’t possibly comment, but I will say that Rome would most definitely be my choice for romance. You also don’t have to have a significant other to experience a romantic city. If you love to travel, you will most likely fall in love with beautiful …
I am in love with Trastevere. It’s such a magical place. This Piazza is next to my little apt & it’s beautiful. If I had to describe Trastevere, I would say that it’s quaint, charming, romantic, easy going & very cool. There are lots of little cute shops & boutiques around, all kinds of cool little bars, beautiful restaurants & everything is interesting. People are so friendly here, I love that.

My beautiful friend Rebecca recently went on a 2 week Caribbean Honeymoon Cruise with her hubby. The itinerary included 10 islands in 2 weeks. How cool is that? Together, we are sharing with you their amazing itinerary & some beautiful photos from their daily activities on the islands. DAY 1: St. Thomas A 20 minute bus tour took us to our destination. We have a brief introduction by our guides as to what the day would consist of. After kayaking through the mangroves for about 30 minutes, we stopped for a break and learned a little bit about the mangroves and the history of the area. We then travelled for 5 minutes to our next destination, where we raced hermit crabs followed by a short hike to see a tide pool and a blowhole, where the water crashed into these huge rocks. During snorkelling, we saw many beautiful colourful fish and a stingray which was hiding on the seabed. Our guides of the day were engaging and informative.
