  • Get away from the city lights of Frankfort and drive to a secluded spot under the open sky. Lay down a cosy blanket and sit together, gazing up at the stars. Use a star chart or stargazing mobile app to identify constellations and distant galaxies. As the night progresses, share stories, dreams and hopes with each other, strengthening your bond under the silent witness of the starry sky.
  • Take breaks to sip on your preferred beverages and snack on sweets or other small snacks you've brought along. Also, consider playing soft romantic melodies in the background to set a perfect ambiance. The night wouldn't be complete without making a wish on a falling star.
  • As the night comes to an end, cuddle up together, recapping on your favourite parts of the evening and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Preparation steps:

  • Firstly, you'll need to find an open area, away from city lights, where the sky is clearly visible. Check the weather forecast in advance to make sure the sky is clear. As September evenings can be a bit chilly, dress warmly and carry a cosy blanket.
  • Next, pack a picnic bag with your favourite beverages, sweets or light snacks. Download a star chart or stargazing app on your phone in advance, and bring a portable charger in case your phone runs low on battery.
  • Lastly, prepare a playlist of your favourite romantic songs and make sure you have a way to play it at your stargazing spot. Don't forget to bring a torchlight for your safety. Plan to get there early for sunset and you can spend the twilight hours getting settled in and watching the stars come out.

Some tips:

  • To increase your chances of seeing a falling star, plan your stargazing date during the Perseid meteor shower if it coincides with your dates. Also, familiarise yourself with a few constellations using your stargazing app so you can point them out to your partner and make the experience more interesting. Remember to turn off your torchlights while stargazing to prevent light pollution.
  • The evening can get chilly, so it's a good idea to wear warm clothes, better yet, use the cold weather as an opportunity to cuddle. Also, make sure your blanket is big and comfortable enough for both of you to lie on.
  • Create a comfortable and cosy space by bringing cushion or pillows. Don't forget to capture these precious moments, but don't let the camera distract you from enjoying the present experience. This is a time to connect with your partner, away from the distractions of daily life.
