  • Imagine leaving the hustle and bustle of city life for a little while, taking a scenic drive to the calm countryside. Once you arrive, you find the perfect spot, under an old, robust tree or near a river with a soothing murmur. You lay out a picnic blanket and sit down together, surrounded by the peaceful sounds of nature. While enjoying your homemade treats and crisp wine, you reconnect with each other in the serene tranquillity of the countryside. As the afternoon sun starts to set, painting the sky with hues of pink and gold, you snuggle together, enjoying the moment, whispering sweet nothings in each other's ear.
  • This outdoor date is an opportunity to experience the beauty of the country, see the sights, enjoy each other's company and create lasting memories. It's a chance to feel the warmth of the sun on your face, the cool breeze in your hair, and the closeness of your partner by your side.
  • But the romance doesn't end when the sun sets. As you pack up your picnic and prepare to return home, take a few moments to gaze at the stars beginning to twinkle in the sky, holding your partner close. In the quiet countryside, the stars seem closer, brighter, and more magical than they do in the city.

Preparation steps:

  • For this date, preparation is key. You'll want to pack a picnic basket with delicious treats and refreshing beverages. Think of sandwiches, fruits, a bottle of your favourite wine and some sweet delights for dessert.
  • Pack comfortable blankets to relax on and a few fluffy pillows for added ease. Make sure to bring a couple of folding chairs, too. Check the weather forecast beforehand and bring a pop-up tent or a large umbrella, just in case.
  • Make it extra romantic by adding a few touches like fresh flowers, a wireless speaker to play your favourite songs, a book of poetry to read to each other or a board game to play together.

Some tips:

  • Choose a location that is peaceful and beautiful, where you can hear the sounds of nature. Try to find a spot with some natural shade, in case the sun becomes too hot.
  • For the picnic, opt for light and refreshing food that's easy to eat and doesn't spoil easily in the heat: think sandwiches, salads, fresh fruits and other picnic classics. Don’t forget a chilly bin for your food and drinks. A bottle of wine or some refreshing iced tea can go a long way in swinging the mood.
  • Finally, remember to leave the surroundings just as you found them. Bring a trash bag to collect all your rubbish. This way, you can enjoy the serene ambience of the countryside while making sure it stays lovely for future visits.
