The list of possible romantic getaways for adventure is extensive. The uniqueness of these getaways is that the adventure itself produces a special kind of romance. The elements of danger and mystery that are a normal part these activities expand the dimensions of a relationship. In a tiny way, it is similar to what happens when people experience the dangers of being in combat together. The extreme circumstances propel them beyond typical relationship development parameters and they end up creating the closest friendships of their lives!
Popular romantic getaways for adventure include snow skiing, water skiing, jet skiing, scuba diving, river rafting, and backpacking trips.
For more extreme romantic getaways for adventure, try skydiving, mountain climbing, or bungee jumping. If you want to truly bare your souls to one another while looking into the face of God, go for one these adventures. I’ve never tried any of them but I’ve been told, as I indicated above, that they take you to a place spiritually that can only be understood by those who have done it. One couple told me that they had instant clarity on whether they should remain together or separate after they went skydiving. They were married less than six months later! After skydiving and getting married – the ultimate commitments, I wonder what they’re doing for adventure these days. 🙂
Some less semi-extreme adventures include hot air ballooning, parasailing, and cavern repelling.
Hot air ballooning has become more and more popular over the years. People who’ve done it say that there is nothing like it. A friend of mine who attends ballooning events annually talks fondly about the stillness, the incredible views, and the beauty of the balloons, which are usually very colorful. There are many companies that offer packages for groups and couples complete with wine, cheese, and crackers. Parasailing is an activity that you normally find at waterfront resort locations. Parasailing takes you flying through the air by being towed behind a boat while attached to a special parachute, known as a parasail. Many operators can take two (2) people up at the same time.
Cavern repelling is similar to rock climbing, but instead of climbing up you repel down into a subterranean cave. You might find yourself not only wrestling with your courage because you’re hanging over 150 feet from the bottom, but also captivated at the same time by the amazing geological formations. Unlike rock or mountain climbing, there isn’t much skill or physical strength required for repelling. I repelled down Moaning Cavern in Vallecito, California. A girlfriend, who had already repelled there once before, insisted that we do it together as a way to enrich our relationship. It worked! The experience of confronting fear together in such a majestic environment added a new dimension to our relationship.
Romantic getaways for adventure can inspire a relationship to grow in unique ways. The outcome can be greater fulfillment and romance!
To your romantic adventure.
