Valentine’s Day Weekend Getaways From Bangalore

According to a survey of 1,000 couples about understanding how important traveling affected their relationship positively, almost two thirds (63%) of the respondents claimed that traveling has helped them stay together. Source

Let me paint you a picture of an ideal Valentine’s Day.

Champagnes, a romantic movie time, a banquet of roses and probably a candlelight dinner. I bet you have been brainstorming on how to make a memorable day with your loved one. To be more specific, you would be jumbled up, on how to make this valentine’s day up a notch, marking it as a special one all through the lifetime? If yes, then I am here to clear the smog by pulling out a few amazing ideas from my bag. 

Make this year a marked event for your relationship by giving them the gift of time and companionship with a travel weekend. This idyllic idea cherishes your love by spending time on the other side of the world. After all, the beauty of relationships is having someone to share special moments and experiences with, going through all of the ups and downs together, and knowing that they’re there for you through thick and thin. 

If you are still on the verge of deciding, let me list down the advantages of traveling with your partner. 

1. Being close to the nature steers clear of any relationship issues

Valentine's day weekend getaways from Bangalore

When you’re in nature, you don’t have to look into your mobile phones. Instead, you’re either focused on the people around you, or on what you are doing, like climbing or walking across a beach shore. This will create peace of mind for you and your partner for any conversations during this will be constructive, practical on your past experiences and paving a ray of sunshine for the relationship you are about to begin.

2. A stress-free Valentine’s weekend

Valentine’s day is clearly a high-pressured occasion. It’s because it sneaks up on you as you do the last-minute plans. Your take on minimizing your stress is a well-planned travel getaway. So, there is no stress on disappointing your valentine, and instead, you will be busy having open conversations and indulge in an adventure as a sign of showcasing your true love.  

3. Bond better while away from the digital world

Communication, intimacy, and trust – these are the key behaviors leading to a stronger relationship. Give a chance for these key factors to build up, while you have fun and adventure at the feet of nature. Traveling together as a couple will strengthen the friendship, deepen our trust for one another, and build an unfailing foundation of mutual respect.

4. Create a memorable relationship milestone

No matter how long you’ve been together, there should be a few milestones for the two to be crossing. Moving together and sharing your Netflix accounts aren’t the only milestones you can achieve. The small travel getaways can be a smart choice to increase the depth of knowing one another and result in a closer relationship. 


 

Plan The Unplanned gears you up with a few exclusive trips to plan a perfect valentine’s day and I am listing it down below! Let it be mountains, or beaches or a perfect sunrise. Choose the trip that suits your taste and get ready to create memories that last forever!
