Inspired by the movie “Hope Springs
” and sponsored by Sony, we gathered on December 3rd to talk romantic travel. Our tweeters told stories of 1st loves, vacations past and occasionally veered out of the G-rated category! Where were you when your significant other first said I love you? @dianarowe We'd just rode in to Sturgis for bike week & were walking down Main Street ;-) @WanderingTastes College newspaper (romantic, no?)
@Connie Foggles @DebMomof3 That's a sign of real love, you don't remember and it doesn't matter.
@ionmyadventures At a dance after football game. I still hear Sherriff playing "When I'm with you." How can travel help get the magic back? @leighbra We need time away from boring realities of being an adult! Let someone else cook & focus on each other! @petersterri It's getting away without the kids that helps us! Travel is the only time we do that. @chaotic_barb Shared experiences just add to the memories and romance of long term relationships @ionmyadventures Time alone helps you remember who you are together, not just mom and dad. Can you find romance at a low end motel as easily as a high end boutique hotel? @stblissout Not if there is fear of bedbugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! @chaotic_barb *Bring quarters for the bed!* @theejuliette that's more romantic because you both care about saving money @mommaof4girlies It's what you do, not where you do it Why is food so important in a relationship? What are your faves? @IcySupreme the way to my mans heart @DianaRowe Lots of conversation & intimacy over food & wine! Favs any restaurant @TheBroadmoor, good wine, prime rib, lobster @AustinKVS Food is the way to a man's heart still, isn't it? I won mine with brownies. :-D @ionmyadventures Food is sexy! Love chocolate, wine, and pasta (gluten free of course, or it's not sexy). @maryheston Besides food setting the mood - I get pretty grumpy when I'm hungry - and that's just not pretty
What's the least fave holiday gift you ever got or gave? The best?@rachelferrucci My dh bought me a dress meant for a 20 yr old- I'm not 20 anymore- I'd look like a hoochie- not cool.
@zipporahs My husband bought me a boat - he knows I get seasick. Time to admit he bought it for himself.
@CarissaRogers have to admit the hubs is great about gift, in fact I have to only 'ask' for a few items, or he'll get them ALL!
@sashacory Least fave: wrong sized clothes Fave: custom picture of my late 1st dog. Made me cry :(
Where would you go to renew your vows?
@ky_1987 Bora Bora or Maui
@OneHotMamaGuide I'd say Sonoma County at a beautiful vineyard! Amazing wine+food+friends+fam.
@familytravel4um We renew our vows every day & more often when we travel - esp love Asia
@ramblingstump Got married @ImprovAsylum on Leap Yr Day- we go back on "real" anniversaries. Wouldn't dream of going elsewhere.
