The 6 Most Romantic Places On Earth

Romance makes our pupils dilate and our hearts race with desire. It overwhelms us and makes us as giddy as school children. Whether a relationship is fresh, entering a new stage, has been chugging along for years or has yet to be stumbled upon, certain destinations have the enigma, beauty and flair to ignite or heighten romance.

1) Aspen.

AZfamily

A key ingredient to a romantic hot spot is breathtaking natural beauty, which Aspen Colorado has plenty of. With this pleasant and remote resort town’s dramatic backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, I challenge you to find an ugly sight in this southwestern haven. There’s nothing quite like ambling through lushly dense forests and picnicking lakeside to make you and your love feel thousands of miles away from the growing knot of your daily responsibilities. With its thriving nightlife, booming restaurant scene and crisp mountain air, Aspen will make you want to stay forever.

2) Barcelona

The Catalonian city of Barcelona is a gem for honeymooners and couples looking for romance; Spain’s second-largest city has the laidback persona of a beach town, an art scene comparable to those found in bigger cities, and an exotic vibrancy typical of tropical locales. Moseying through the Gothic Quarter, which is free of motorized vehicles, makes for a lovely experience that is both relaxing and illuminating. Picasso and Salvador Dali paintings are abundant and the cuisine is both cutting-edge and classic Mediterranean. Warm throughout all seasons, this city is ideal for those who desire a balance between sunny relaxation and enriching history.

3) Rio de Janeiro  

International Business Times

What’s romance without laughs, dancing and frivolity? Celebrate love in Rio de Janeiro, the greatest party on Earth. This sundrenched Brazilian metropolis is the meeting place of colorful urban vivacity and a natural playground of blue waters and green peaks. Spend the morning strolling by thought-provoking contemporary art, the afternoon swimming together underneath one of the city’s waterfalls, and dance away the evening at a samba party. No romantic trip to Rio would be complete without a ride to the top of the Sugar Loaf Mountains to share a smooch among the clouds. In a sprawling city that is enriched with diversity, visitors to Rio will never grow bored of the snazzy fashion, flavorsome foods, gorgeous cathedrals or a love of football (soccer) that is fervently shared by millions.

4) Bruges

Trip Advisor

Whatever problems you might have will surely melt away when you and your lovey mosey about Bruges, Belgium. The city’s canals are perfect for a scenic boat ride through this UNESCO World Heritage Site that evokes the medieval grandeur of centuries past. Paved with cobblestone streets, this small city is perfect for romantic strolls. And while the hidden nooks and crannies will reveal bustling markets, local craftsmen and dreamy gardens, you can also explore from the sky  via hot air balloon ride. As if that weren’t romantic enough, once you land, there are plenty of artisan shops selling gourmet chocolate. Needless to say, any romantic trip to Bruges is guaranteed to be unforgettable.

5)   Maldives

U.S. News Travel

In a continent of imposing giants, the breathtaking archipelago of Maldives is Asia’s smallest country. Surrounded by the brilliantly blue waves of the Indian Ocean, this sunny paradise offers unparalleled diving and surfing opportunities. The land offers spectacular coastal views for those couples that might want to canoodle in the sand as the sun peaks over the sparkling waters. Maldives’ overnight accommodations are designed to fulfill lavish fantasies with its abundance of resorts and bungalows that hover above gently lapping waves. With its freshly caught seafood, soothing massages, wondrous scenery and superior lap of luxury, any romantic vacation in The Maldives will seem straight out of a daydream.

6)  Paris  

Tumblr

Surely, you're not be surprised to see Paris on this list; for centuries, it has inspired couples and artists alike with its sweeping ethos of dreamlike scenery, and its coveted cuisine..With iconic sites around every bend, couples can easily find the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Catacombs, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre (the largest art museum in the world) and, of course, the magnificent Palace of Versailles. For a moment of simple and intimate romance, pack a picnic and lounge along the picturesque River Seine. Be sure to enjoy an afternoon or evening of people watching in one of the city’s most beautiful spots, like the Luxembourg Gardens. Taking photographs throughout The City of Light is an absolute must.

Love is the stuff that inspires songs, literature, and our own daydreams. Tell us in the comment section below what romantic travel destination makes your heart sing.

Baby Countdown Enters Final Days - The Creation Of Us (S1:E7)

** OGTV's first The Creation Of Us (S1) playlist story of the week follows Aydian and Jenilee as they enter the final planning stages for the birth of their baby! **

What is more dramatic than the dwindling days before the birth of a couple's first child? In this episode of The Creation Of Us, the countdown is on as Aydian and Jenilee scramble to learn all they have to know about childbirth and being parents.

Although there is much to do, the parents-to-be are pretty organized. First, they sit down with their doula to come up with a day of birth and postpartum plan. They discuss their ideas for keeping Jenilee comfortable, and create checklists and guidelines to help manage all the details. Afterward, they are off to a birthing class where they go through what the actual birth will be like.

"The birthing class always makes me feel so much more secure about giving birth," Jenilee relates. "It's comforting to be developing a toolbox so I have things to grab from when the birth actually happens." Aydian has concerns and questions and their birthing teacher, Sarah, walks them through different techniques for the actual birth and things they can practice at home.

After the birthing class, they meet with their midwife for the first time. While a little nervous about a first meeting with someone so integral to the birth, Jenilee and Aydian are very excited to have both a doula and a midwife on board. "Jenilee and I chose to have a midwife because the birth process is so intimate," Aydian notes. "Our plan is to birth in a place that doesn't feel like a hospital. Ideally, if we are in a birthing center that makes us feel like we are in our own home, we can give that to ourselves and our child for the first moments of birth."

Jenilee and Aydian hope that if they are able to follow their plan, it will make the birth feel less medical and more spiritual, true to who they are as a couple. The clock is ticking – join them as they start the final countdown to the biggest day of their lives.
