A Unique Kind of Intimate Getaway

Taking an anniversary trip, regardless of the total years together, is the ideal way to re-commit to your relationship.

And for the husband and wife getting near the Ruby anniversary? Different from a honeymoon where a couple wants to unstrain and have fun, particularly after the many months of planning, an anniversary trip demands more planned preparation. camping-1106782__340.jpg It is important to consider a location and schedule that is ideal for your marital landmark. For instance, couples celebrating a 45-year anniversary might want something more leisurely, like visiting Santa Barbara wine country, whilst the younger folks may want to ski in Colorado or check something off the bucket list like a safari in Botswana.

Holidays such as these will give you a new understanding of the world as well as your connection. And luckily, there is a list of places ready to go. Principality of Monaco

Witness Monaco Ville, called Le Rocher, where you will be taken back in time to an old town with tiny, windy medieval lanes. Later on, head to the celebrated Casino de Monte-Carlo which gives couples the opportunity to get all gussied up, and the gents must don jackets after eight pm. Amsterdam, Holland What could be more romantic for an anniversary than to visit Holland’s famous tulip display?

The main attraction though is the original seventeenth century canal houses in the country's capital, Amsterdam.

Beaver Creek, Colorado A couple can reserve a private room in the deluxe Trappers Cabin, which typically holds ten, and renew their vows at Beaver Creek Mountain, only 12 miles from Vail, Colorado. Cabo San Lucas

Observe the glory of whale watching in Cabo when humpbacks start showing up between December and April. Republic of Botswana Along the Khwai, east of the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana, you can travel to the Khwai Private Reserve which comes with access to the well-known Okavango Delta. Algarrobo, Chile

Do you wish to swim in one of the world's most extensive saltwater pools? Then head to the Crystal Lagoon at San Alfonso del Mar Resort in Chile.
