7 destinations to NOT take your partner for a romantic weekend
Share This Article:
Valentine’s Day can be a really special occasion, as long as you choose the right location. Luckily, I have taken the time to do the research for you so you don’t end up in any of the places listed below. 1. Swansea, UK Despite the long, open beaches and fresh sea air, Swansea is high up on the list of least dreamy destinations. According to 3% of Britons, it’s one of the last places you’d want to go on a romantic Valentine’s break. Even the Wetherspoons took a battering last year with one TripAdvisor review calling it the worst in the whole of Britain. 2. Belgorod, Russia A hot toddy and a cuddle by the fire. Belgorod sounds like an idyllic cosy break with a loved one, doesn’t it? Not so much when you discover that Valentine’s Day in schools and government offices is banned. The townsfolk believe the annual celebration promotes promiscuity over true love. 3. Rotorua, New Zealand Also known as “Sulphur City”. While the countryside is beautiful to look at, with its distinctive landscapes and soothing hot springs, the smell isn’t quite what you’d have in mind to set the mood. The whole place wreaks like your dad’s socks after a long day mowing the lawns in 30-degree heat.
