Santorini’s awe-inspiring landscape dominated by the Caldera is a photographers dream and makes for a romantic island with totally mesmerising views. This picturesque island with its blue and white palette is the perfect Greek island for a romantic escape.

Antigua and Barbuda will always be on my list as a top romantic destination as it is where my other half proposed. With 365 beaches to relax on, amazing food, amazing people, serenity, and beauty everywhere, it is definitely one of the best Caribbean islands that I have visited so far.

Not only is it easy to get to, Paris is one of the most romantic cities to visit where you can take a walk together down cute cobbled streets, indulge in sweet decadent pastries and freshly baked baguettes, see all the gorgeous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and have romantic dates enjoying all the wine and cheese.

Italy is so full of romance, and my favourite place is Tuscany with its rolling green hills, all the pasta and pizza and wine you could dream of, lush vineyards, creamy gelato and truffle! Whenever we think of choosing a romantic escape, Tuscany pops up as a nostalgic memory and I know one day we will be back!

Devon is our favourite place in the UK for a romantic staycation. There is nothing quite like the English countryside with its stunning views and tranquility. The highlight is the Devonshire Cream Tea to enjoy together as well as lovely walks through scenic fields. There are lots of lovely National Trust buildings to visit too.

Hi, I’m Binny – a writer, dreamer, serial wanderluster and travel addict. I am originally from Kenya but now live in London. I set up this blog to share my experiences eating out as well as travelling.

I love packing my bags and going off on adventures as one of the best things about travelling is the ability to just get lost in it. To set aside the maps and itineraries and just see where the road takes you, learning and evolving and living in the moment along the way.

It’s my goal to get swept off my feet as often as possible.

    I love that you included little old Devon on this list. That’s where I met my boyfriend. And where I lived for years when I was in England! I never thought of it as particularly romantic, but you’re right… it totally is!

      Ahhh I love Devon – we always escape there for a little break from crazy times!!

    Some great destinations there – I always think of Paris and Italy as being romantic destinations for sure!

    We don’t normally do much for valentines, but this year we’ll be away in North Iceland, so Im really excited, snow covered mountains and tundras are pretty romantic, right? I’m just hoping we can upgrade to a hot tub!

    One day I’ll visit Kenya! Really want to explore more of Africa.
