    Out-of-the-box ideas for a perfect date

    Oh the holidays… What a delightful experience – new places to visit, cultures to explore and people to mingle with. Not to mention it’s a tremendous occasion for the perfect date! For some, however, the excitement doesn’t just stop there. Many travellers take advantage of this time to indulge in even more intimate moments with their partners – or with a holiday fling! And we have figures to prove it, based on the latest study commissioned by Auto Europe.

    More than 30% of European respondents revealed seeing a bit of passion over a vacation period of two weeks, with 12.4% not even being able to quantify it – there were just too many romantic encounters! More specifically, 18% of French participants claimed to have at least one intimate moment, while over 25% Spanish participants couldn’t put a number on how many times they usually get lucky on holidays. On the other hand, an unfortunate 26.5% of Swedes say they never have such experiences, with Dutch and Germans not far behind at 25.9% and 25.7%, respectively.

    Unsurprisingly, many factors influence the romantic atmosphere while abroad. And certainly some places and activities are more effective in doing so. We have a few ideas for the perfect date to help you improve those statistics.

    The Foodie Couple

    Homemade meals can be a loving way to show your affection. But when on holiday, why not treat your partner to a dinner in a panoramic restaurant with nice views? For those scared of heights, we have a more frisky idea: dine in the dark. Tasting and touching in a pitch-black room is arguably one of the most unique experiences you’ll ever have. When travelling around Paris, London, Saint Petersburg, Madrid, and others, have the perfect date at Dans le Noir?.

    The Adventurous Couple

    Be daring! You can start with a simple swim in the ocean at night, under a starry sky, or go snorkeling with your partner alongside hundreds of wild sea creatures. The point is to be active. Couples looking to take it up a notch can have the perfect date in Ticino, south of Switzerland. There, adventure lovers can go bungee jumping at 220 meters from the Verzasca Dam. This place was even featured in James Bond’s “Goldeneye”. And even better, you can increase your adrenaline levels jumping at night, when the dam is lit with flood lights and the moon!

    The Nightlife Couple

    Speaking of night time activities, why not take your partner to a concert in town? Music is a great way to turn up the heat in a relationship. You can also go dancing, clubbing or bar-hopping. Comedy clubs with stand-up specials and open mic nights are fun activities as well. If the idea of cocktails at the beach sounds like the perfect date, then look no further than the Opium club in Barcelona, Spain. The party starts at the beach during the day and carries on into the night with international DJ’s splendid decorations.

    The Quiet Couple

    Most of the time, simple gestures are more than enough to create the perfect date. Intimate quiet moments with your partner can be rather a great way to spend your holiday together. We recommend getting massages together, watching a good movie, playing board games or simply strolling around the beach. Couple that enjoy having time alone by themselves must try the paddle swan boats on the Peblinge Dosseringen Lake. The charming city of Copenhagen, in Denmark, is also famous for the Tivoli Gardens, second oldest amusement park in the world.
