A camping adventure can be romantic. It does not matter what you think, or what you have been told, you can have the most romantic getaway by camping outdoors, under the stars.
A romantic camping adventure is exactly what you and your significant other need to keep things interesting. However, if you are not sure how – you are not alone. For this reason, if you want to indulge in a camping adventure with your partner, here are a couple of ideas to keep in mind.
The Location Matters
If you do not have any camping experience, it is best to find a local campground. Take out the time to do a bit of homework to find the best possible places for you to go on a camping adventure with your partner.
For starters, you should check out the campgrounds in your state via the NRRS (National Recreation Reservation Service). Make sure you also check out the amenities available to make an informed decision.
Disconnect to Live in the Moment
Once you reach your camping destination, disconnect immediately. Let go of your phone and spend as much time as you can with your partner.
Talk and do stuff together and live in the moment. Nothing says I love you like paying attention to your significant other. Rest assured, disconnecting from the outside will yield fruitful results.
Essentials to keep the Romance in Check
Before you head out on your romantic camping adventure, there are a couple of essentials needed to keep the romance in check:
- Portable speakers (for obvious reasons)
- Wine glasses
- Double sleeping bag to cozy up to one another
- Comfortable blanket to cuddle in, to be closer to your better half
A Tent is a Must
No matter what campground you choose to visit, make sure you invest in a durable bell tent. Since your tent will protect you and your partner from Mother Nature, it would be unwise to cop out.
If you are going to sleep on the floor, and if your tent does not hold up, then it is highly unlikely that you and your partner will be able to sleep. To prevent this from happening, , here are a couple of tips to consider while looking for a tent.
Keep the Food and Wine Flowing
Apart from a brand new tent, and an extraordinarily comfortable double sleeping bag, you will need a fire to heat things up (pun intended).
Before you and your partner get jiggy with it, get enough food and wine to avoid having to call the hunter/gatherer within you. Your romantic getaway can be ruined for simply not having enough food prepared beforehand, which is why it would be wise to stock up to avoid any hassles later on. Moreover, make sure you have enough water to drink.
Explore your Surroundings
Don’t just stick to one place at a campground, move around and explore your surroundings. Hike the mountains, walk the trails and let nature be your gym.
Apart from testing your mettle, you will come across sights that will leave you speechless. Of course, in these moments there is really no harm in taking a picture or two together, with your partner in crime.
Not only will you develop a stronger bond with your partner, but you will benefit from improved health by partaking in physical activities – a great way to kill two birds with one stone.
Be Comfortable with your Partner
Camping as a couple can definitely spice up your relationship. It is a great way to add adventure and excitement to your lives. During such a trip, make it a note to learn as much as you can about your partner. Share whatever goes on in your head, and in return hear what he/she has to say. Once the two of you are comfortable with one another, there is hardly anything that can come in-between.
Being comfortable with your partner in an uncomfortable environment is part of the adventure. But not at the expense of making your partner feel uneasy; especially if they can’t embrace Mother Nature in all her glory.
Focus on getting to know each other first after which you can focus on camping and all the activities you can do together.
It goes without saying your time and undivided attention is the greatest of gifts you can offer to your significant other. As long as you make new memories with your partner, it will be worth more than all the money in the world; and that is a fact.
