If there’s one thing that rom-coms have affirmed our faith in, it’s the magical power of a surprise vacation to breathe life into a relationship that’s starting to feel just a little bit mundane. After all, when it comes to romance, there are few things that whisper “love” the way whisking your partner away for a mid-month, relaxing weekend away from home, does!
