  • Your day starts by finding the ideal spot with the most stunning view, perhaps overlooking the emerald green waters of the Aegean Sea or the fairy tale chimneys of Cappadocia. Once there, reveal the surprise picnic you've prepared and settled down together to enjoy the food surrounded by breathtaking views.
  • Afterwards, walk together through the paths of the location, hand in hand, discovering the hidden gems only locals would usually know. The remainder of the date entails swapping stories and sharing laughs while the sun sets, coloring the sky in hues of orange and pink.
  • Before you head back, make sure to capture these special moments with some photographs with the stunning backdrop of Mother Nature. This date is not about extravagant gestures, but more about enjoying each otherโ€™s company in the beauty of the nature.

Preparation steps:

  • Pack a picnic basket with simple yet delicious food that doesnโ€™t require any preparation at the picnic site. Include items like sandwiches, fruits, cheese, crackers, and a bottle of your favorite non-alcoholic beverage. Donโ€™t forget to take some cozy blankets and a camera.
  • Be sure to check the weather forecast before you plan your date. You donโ€™t want to end up in a downpour. In case of rain, always have a plan B location in mind that can either be indoors or under cover.
  • Having some background knowledge about the spots you visit will add extra charm to your date. Do a little research to find out interesting stories about the places and share these with your partner on your exploration walk.

Some tips:

  • Leaving early in the morning will ensure that you secure the best spot before it gets too crowded. Most of these scenic locations can get quite crowded with tourists during the day so being early has its advantage.
  • Wear comfortable clothing and footwear suitable for a walk in nature, along with hats and sunscreen to protect from the sun.
  • Keep the picnic spot and the surroundings clean. Remember, you are in nature and it is important to respect the environment and wildlife. Pack your trash and dispose it properly.
