Local Getaways

Romantic getaways for couples can be a fantastic opportunity for you and your spouse to reignite your relationship.

What I like about a local getaway is that you can get in the car and drive to the destination. Usually, my spouse and I get up and go without any serious planning before we go.

We generally have an idea of where we want to go, such as the ocean, the mountains, a waterfall, or a lake nearby.

Once we agree on the general destination, I will Google the area for romantic destinations or things to do in the area.

Once we determine we are going to this destination, I will search for a romantic getaway in the destination area.

I make a reservation at the most romantic hotel, cabin, or house rental in that area.

If there is no hotel, house, or cabin available, I will rent an RV, or we will take the SUV and go camping in the destination area.

However, we will usually look for a local getaway hotel or house first since we are looking for a soft bed, a shower, and indoor toilets.

The bottom line, a local getaway hotel is going to be cheap. I have spent $200 or less (per night) at a local getaway hotel.

The more quality features you and your spouse look for, the higher the price.

Usually, there are no fees to gain access to the beautiful scenery. However, park fees and beach parking are always an issue, so I would make sure your budget includes miscellaneous money for parking and entrance fees.

In addition, make sure you have extra gas money above your estimated gas budget. You never know how much it will cost to get to your destination and roam the general area.

I will usually calculate $50 a day for gas. I will budget $150 for gas for a three-day trip, plus an extra $50 for unknown possibilities.

I always look for a fireplace in the local getaway hotel, cabin, or house. Having sex near a crackling fire is so romantic!

If you rent a cabin, I recommend looking for spiders, cockroaches, and other critters when you arrive.

My wife was bitten years ago by a spider in a cabin we rented, and the scar from the spider bite and her itching wound left a mark on her leg for a year.

So I recommend killing all the bugs you see when you arrive. You don't want your spouse to go into a panic attic over a spider while she is peeing!

In addition, if your spouse is not the athletic type, don't force your spouse into kayaking. My spouse's elbow hurt her all weekend when we kayaked in Thailand.

My spouse ensured I understood her elbow's pain for three days.

I learned a precious lesson that weekend! Never force your spouse to do something (physically) when she is not a workout bunny!

A local getaway is not only enjoyable, but helps both of you release any "bottled-up" stress that can affect your relationship.

My recommendation: go on a road trip every four months to a local getaway to talk about your relationship, sex, income, home remodeling, or other issues!

International Getaways

When you want to get away from it all, my wife and I get our darts out and throw them into our world map on our home office wall and go for it.

International getaways are very expensive. However, sometimes I can get rates as low as $220 per night, but usually, world-class resorts cost $450 to $1,000 or more per night.

Then there are the airline tickets. They can cost $2,500 round-trip for each of us.

When you choose random places in the world, getaways can lead to serious adventures.

When you make reservations like my wife and I, you need to invest 14 days in your international getaway adventure since you'll lose two days traveling and another two days recovering from traveling.

I try to look for romantic things to do in every destination, but sometimes when you throw darts at a map, it's hard not to get a little scared.

For example, my wife won our dart throw about ten years ago. My wife threw a dart at our world map on the wall and hit the Amazon jungle.

We both started to get sick to our stomachs when we gazed at the dart sticking out of the map. The Amazon seemed extremely dangerous to us.

However, we knew nothing about Amazon except the action movies we watched on TV.

We thought of giant snakes, head hunters, the drug cartel, and armed rebels hiding out in the jungle.

So, I started doing some research, and to my amazement, I found a hotel with quality rooms and bathrooms with great views of the jungle and delicious buffets for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The hotel is called the La Casa del Suizo. Go to:

The Amazon is genuinely compelling and one of the world's natural wonders.

You barely leave the hotel, and you are right in the thick of the Amazon jungle.

It was so breathtaking to view exotic birds and monkeys and get a glimpse of jaguars for a few seconds.

The amazon is an endless, giant living zoo filled with butterflies, giant insects, snakes, and mammals that I have only seen on national geographic.

We saw the locals in their natural environment, which was so lovely. They may be extremely poor, but they were so happy and kind!

I would also highly recommend going to the Andes and the Galapagos islands while in South America.

Deep Conversations

It is one thing to go to dinner and chat about work, friends, sex, and other miscellaneous B.S. Talking about serious problems with your spouse is an entirely different issue, which I call "deep conversations."

When I was younger, I was afraid to talk about serious matters of the heart or relationship issues that needed to be addressed with my spouse.

However, as I got older, I learned to address these issues head-on at dinners to get our relationship back on track.

I usually had these deep conversations when we went on a local or international getaway.

My spouse expected these deep conversations when we went on our getaways. However, sometimes my wife would not wait for dinner; she would often start these conversations as soon as we hit the highway in the car or while we were waiting for our plane to arrive at the airport.

Many times, I had to bite my tongue and take the punishment that was directed toward me. I figured I deserved it and would apologize after my wife stopped "ranting" on me.

I use the following five steps for an apology to my spouse:

1. Say: I'm sorry.

2. Say: I'm wrong.

3. Say: What can I do to make it right?

4. Say: I'll try not to do it again.

5. Say: Will you please forgive me?

I have to admit that I am wrong more than my wife. However, she has moments where she apologizes and asks for forgiveness.

I feel that in most relationships, more men are fucking-up than women. I guess that's the nature of men and women.

Sometimes we talk about things we either hate or love happening in our lives.

For example, I bought a $10,000 Japanese bed while we were in Tokyo. And my wife explained that she did not like the bed and would like a new one.

And I liked our bed.

So we looked for new beds while we were on a getaway adventure. I move on rather than fight, even if the bed cost me $10,000.

So if you go on these getaways every four months and air your grievances, your relationship will be kept on the right track, and you'll avoid the divorce court.

Romantic Sex Outdoors

My wife and I love having hot, steamy sex! And I look for as many places as possible to have sex outdoors.

Whenever we go outdoors, I look for a place to have sex. {Affiliate Disclosure: We earn a small commission if you purchase through this link.}

My wife has a pretty keen eye for finding places outdoors to fuck. It keeps us alive and young at heart!

I get a hard-on just thinking about fucking my wife's pussy! So when we're on a local or international getaway, we're looking at all the possible locations to fuck.

It could be a dressing room at a woman's dress shop, the bathroom, on an airplane, in a movie theatre, on the beach, in the jungle, and on and on.

I recommend that the more creative you get with your outdoor sex, the more fun you'll have on these local or international getaways.

So start fucking outdoors!

Creating a Unique Romantic Memory

Regardless of whether you choose a local or international getaway, you will need one fantastic romantic memory to remember your getaway adventure.

I always start with my destination and think of what I can do romantically once I arrive at my destination.

Let me give you an example.

My wife and I decided to drive to a little island on the Georgia coastline (USA) while visiting my brother's house.

I booked a hotel room for the night ($220).

The island was not an exotic island with waterfalls or a clear blue ocean. The ocean was dark and cold, and the island turned out to be a typical east coast tourist trap.

We took three outdoor Citronella candles (Amazon $14.99), an extra-large picnic/outdoor blanket that has a water-resistant mat underneath the blanket (Amazon $26.99), and battery-powered LED lights in the shape of roses (Amazon $11.99).

In addition, we bought some seafood, pasta, bread, two cheap wine glasses, and white wine to go to the beach.

We laid down our blanket, set the candles at three corners (since we only had three), laid out our rose LED lights around our blanket, put our dinner in the middle, toasted, and had a romantic picnic at sunset for $125.

After we finished eating and drinking, no one was on the beach. We stripped our clothes off and made love right on the beach under the stars.

It was so romantic!

These are the romantic memories we have concerning the Georgia coastline. It's ingrained in our brains whenever we think of Georgia.

These are the memories you want to create so that you can smile from ear to ear for the rest of your life.

Last word of Advice Concerning Getaways

Do not take your old lingerie outfits or sex costumes. Always buy new lingerie outfits or sex costumes your spouse has never seen.

And always bring plenty of vibrators and sex toys with you. {Affiliate Disclosure: We earn a small commission if you purchase through this link.}

This way, when you have hot, steamy sex in your hotel room, your spouse will be turned-on and cum hard when you both start fucking like wild teenagers!
