/ romantic destination help needed...
well it's about time she learned then...
I remember Salzburg as being "chocolate box" pretty, all that Von-Trapp crap as well.
Keswick. Every time.
I had a lovely romantic weekend away in Budapest last year. It's a beautiful city and fairly cheap to stay in a posh hotel. We had nice food and the best hot chocolate ever, went ice skating in the park and spent ages lazing around in thermal baths.
It might have sounded more romantic if you'd said..
I want to take................
Dont have any suggestions other than this kind of thing is usually very couple specific.
Not guaranteed to be snowy, but super pretty whatever the weather. They have an ice-sculpture festival from the end of November.
It's not super-cheap, though.
Also, it's one of the only places in the world where drinking beer and eating chips counts as "exploring the traditional local culture".
or for warm, yes to Barcelona or if it's just for a weekend maybe Palermo?
You can't get cheaper than Blackpool
Have you chosen the ring yet?
agree with this - be careful though, the Estonian women are distractingly gorgeous. wear blinkers...
I vote for Tallin (Estonia) or Poland (Poznan, Krakow etc) cheap, easy to reach and the old towns are very picturesque. If not them then possibly Bratislava (though its a poor relation when comparing old towns)or Budapest?
Though for romance with easy travel and cheapness you can't go wrong with Prague? Probably the most romantic city in Europe (some would say Paris however I have never understood the lure of Paris its a sh*t tip full of grumpy people).
I think you'd be taking pot luck on cheap sunny places. November is the wettest month for a lot of the med, but if you got lucky Rome would be great, and plenty of indoor stuff if the weather's not so hot.
A Travelodge just outside Mirfield on the A62 was one of the most "Interesting" nights of my life from a romantic point of view...
+1 for Prague - went in September and it is such a beautiful city. Cheap food and good food if you take the time and the trams out of the fleshpots to find it - and Charles Bridge at sunrise is about as luminously romantic as it can get I reckon.
Beer's cheap too
cheers for all the ideas, guys... i've just booked us a stay in the old Von Trapp family house in Salzburg. She loves musicals, she loves fairytale castles and she loves winter markets. i reckon i did good :)
Lautro in Crete
You could maybe get a cheap flight there.
+1 for marrakech
