After a couple of years of being together, keeping the romance alive with your partner is a key aspect of your relationship. Getting butterflies in your stomach when you see your partner doesn’t last forever, so keeping the sparks flying is vital to the health of your relationship and your future prospects. There’s only so many dinner dates and so many movies you can watch together under a blanket on a rainy Sunday afternoon. That’s why it’s important to think outside of the box to create new and exciting ways for you to intimately connect with your significant other.
Personally, I’ve found that camping in a remote spot in the bush is a great way to rekindle the romance. There’s nobody around to bother you except the birds singing in the trees, and the sunshine and fresh air quickly replenishes your love for one another. What better way to spend a weekend together than by a lake relaxing in the sunshine? Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned camper or not, there are certain things you’ll need to make sure your romantic getaway goes smoothly and you can return home completely rejuvenated. To give you some ideas on how to achieve this, here are our top tips for camping as a couple.
The location of your camping trip is crucial. Setting up camp on a hill and watching the sun set over a valley is magnificent, but you don’t want to make your significant other feel uncomfortable because there’s no shower or running water. If it’s your first camping adventure as a couple, I highly recommend finding a campsite with utilities such as bathrooms and electricity (to make sure you don’t miss that perfect photo opportunity).
Disconnect to Reconnect
There’s no Wi-Fi in the bush, but I guarantee you’ll find a better connection with your partner. In a world where we’re constantly connected, it’s vital that we disconnect sometimes and enjoy being in the moment with our loved ones. Being grounded in nature far away from the world’s problems is the perfect time to unplug and enjoy spending time with your partner in the simplicity of nature.
While you don’t need much to enjoy the company of your significant other, there is some essential equipment you’ll need to make the most of your romantic getaway. Make sure you bring a double sleeping bag and a good double air mattress to ensure you get a good night’s sleep. Don’t forget a nice warm blanket, chairs, wine glasses, cheese, and some speakers. Plus, you’ll need plenty of water, snacks, and food of course. Nothing ruins a romantic getaway more than being hungry!
Depending on where you’re going, you’ll want to make the most off what you have around you. If you’re going to a lake or river, don’t forget a fishing rod and blow up tire. On the other hand, if you’re heading to the bush, don’t forget your hiking boots and selfie stick. Enjoying fun activities together is a wonderful way for you and your partner to connect on a deeper level. There’s no point going on a camping trip if there’s no fun or adventure.
Camping with your partner is an excellent way to add a sense of excitement and adventure to your relationship. Nothing is more romantic than cuddling by a campfire with some roasted marshmallows, a glass of wine, and some of your favourite music playing in the background. Don’t forget that not everything goes to plan and being comfortable with your partner in uncomfortable circumstances is all part of the adventure. Don’t stress, you’ll have plenty of stories to tell your kids one day!
