Here’s why a Caravan Getaway is the Most Romantic Thing You Can do this Valentine’s Day
1. Even when the campsite is chockers, you’re always assured of a few square metres’ breathing space between you and your neighbours. If you have ever stayed in a hotel room with thin walls, you’ll be able to fully appreciate the necessity of this space. Nobody wants to be kept awake by the couple in the next room arguing, or worse, making up!
2. If your relationship is still blossoming, then camping is a great way to test the waters and see how your new partner reacts to being out of their comfort zone. This tactic is not without risk however; if they decide after the first night without phone reception that they aren’t the ‘outdoorsy’ type, things could turn colder faster than Brad & Jen after Mr & Mrs Smith. As with every camping trip – be prepared for the worst.
3. If you want to rekindle the once-blazing flame, a campfire is the perfect excuse to get cosy with your boo. Snuggle up with a blanket and just stare at the firelight reflected in your lover’s eyes (be sure there’s no single people watching, you might just make them sick).
4. Nothing improves the wonders of our unique Australian landscape more than having someone you love there to share it with. Be adventurous by day; skinny dip in secluded watering holes, explore the rugged outback by 4WD, test yourself on a challenging hike and be rewarded with a breathtaking view. Turn on the romance by night with a bottle of champagne and a sky full of stars.
5. The less cash you waste on expenno hotels and fancy restaurants, the more you’ll have to spend on a gift your partner will really love (hint: it rhymes with ‘sing’).
6. If you simply must bring the kids along, a holiday park full of activities and other children to play with will serve as the perfect distraction. While they’re within eyesight, amusing themselves on the giant blow up pillow, you two lovebirds can steal a sneaky smooch by the barbeque.
7. There’s a reason why the bedroom takes up about half the entire space of most caravans. Camping on Valentine’s Day is one time when rainy weather will definitely work in your favour – if the van’s a rockin’, don’t come a knockin’!
8. Show that special person in your life how much you really care about them by thoughtfully planning an entire romantic weekend getaway all by yourself. Cook them a delicious campfire feast, bring a few bottles of their favourite wine, turn on some slow dancing tunes and watch them fall in love with you all over again.
9. Are you someone who isn’t fond of crowds? A camping holiday means you won’t have to share your special day with a hundred other couples at the late screening of this year’s “Valentine’s Day”.
10. Take a caravan escape to somewhere remote without phone reception or WiFi. Clear your heads and avoid your social media pages being inevitably clogged with selfies of kissing couples and posts of expensive gifts. Being unplugged from technology means you can devote all of your time and energy to romance.
11. Instead of an expensive, cramped, stressful flight to your holiday destination, you could be enjoying a scenic, leisurely drive with nobody else but the love of your life. Blast some cheesy tunes and become teenagers again on the best road trip of your life.
12. When it comes to bunches of flowers, there is simply no question as to which arrangement will charm your lover the most; a dozen wilted red roses bought at the servo, or a lush, fragrant bouquet of wildflowers hand picked for them on your morning stroll about the countryside.
13. Going camping is a national pastime. Impress your partner with a relaxing escape to nature, rather than attempting to wow them with a surprise gift they may not thank you for, like a life drawing class, extreme fishing, or bungee jumping.
14. Although camping in a tent may seem charming and idyllic from afar; a warm, comfy double bed is a hundred times better in real life. Unless you prefer sleeping with a massive tree root under your spine, having your tent invaded by a starving wombat or waking up to a nest of bull ants crawling all over your face.
