A romantic getaway in the Blue Mountains may be exactly what you need. To help get you started, we have scouted some romantic places to stay, so you can re-connect with your loved one.
This year is the year of adaptation, resilience and patience, and just like many, we can’t wait to see the end of the havoc caused by COVID-19. Unfortunately we are still not in the clear and the feeling of extreme stress and uncertainty is affecting many aspects of our lives, our relationships being one of them. It is of great concern that Google searches for the term ‘divorce’ surged to their highest point in 12 months at the end of June 2020, surpassing the usual spike after Christmas and New Year. If you feel you and your partner are in need of more than a “date night”, then some good old domestic travel in the form of a romantic getaway in the Blue Mountains may just be what you need. To help get you started, we have scouted some romantic places to stay, so you can re-connect with your loved one. Before we get into the list, please remember, before booking any travel, to check for any developments with domestic travel restrictions.
