Romantic Destinations (Good for Some Kissing)

Since I've been stuck at home this past year due to circumstances beyond my control, I've only been able to visit romantic foreign destinations in my mind. Here are a few photos I took of some of my favorite romantic spots in the past. I plan on returning on my round-the-world trip, as well as making new discoveries.

Prague


With its medieval architecture, romantic cafes, and overall atmosphere, Prague is one romantic city. Unfortunately, the only time I've been there, I was on my own. So yes, now it's on my list of places to drag the unsuspecting husband.

Venice


Venice is a bit too crowded for my taste, but with views like this, it's possible to find moments where you can forget about the crowds. 


The ruins of Dunnottar Castle


If a crowded city isn't to your liking, remote castle ruins might do the trick. Maybe it's just me, but I find ruined castles much more romantic than standing ones. Art and tapestries are interesting, but crumbling stone ruins are even better for the imagination -- and also for finding a secluded spot away from the crowds.


An alley behind the Magic Box. 
 Oh wait -- maybe that's just for Buffy and Spike.

Juliet, Sophie, and Lee -- Thanks for sharing that you liked the pics!

Rachael -- I could never love Venice as much as you, because it's just SO CROWDED, but it does have its charm.
