A mini break
A mini break to somewhere you’ve always wanted to experience will always be a welcome change. A change of scenery and a change of pace is just what couples need to reflect and reconnect with each other.

Technology is a wonderful thing and it’s meant to make our lives easier. However, despite being able to keep us connected with people all over the world, it’s distressing to see how it can keep us disconnected from those we love the most. If you’re planning a romantic getaway, switch off from your tech!
That means turning off those push notifications, not replying to emails and staying off social media. Sure, take photos and capture some amazing moments, but save the uploads and hashtags for when you get home.
Let the hotel know it’s a special occasion
You might not be planning a surprise engagement and it may not be a special occasion in the traditional sense, but you’ll be surprised at how many hotels and B&Bs are prepared to go the extra mile to ensure you have a stay to remember. Let them know how this romantic weekend is special to you. You may find a bottle of something bubbly waiting for you when you check in! If you order room service you could be treated to a couple of additional romantic touches! It doesn’t hurt to ask.
And finally, plan your days but don’t forget downtime
Whether you’re wanting to enjoy a hike together, or you want to experience the local cuisine, whatever activities you plan to fill your days with, make sure they’re ones you both enjoy. Most importantly, plan your downtime. It won’t be much of a break if you don’t get a chance to sit back and relax with each other. So, don’t forget to choose some quieter activities too – relaxing in your room and ordering room service is always a welcome option!
