However, a “romantic” date need not be costly and far. After all, what really matters is spending your days together. It doesn’t really matter where you two are and how distant you are from your hometown, what matters is that you are “together”. That in itself is romantic enough, especially if you’re feelings for each other are quiet strong.

In this case, have you considered a romantic camping trip with your guy (or girl) alone? It is unusual for lovers to do such a thing together, unless they’re both backpackers. On the other hand, for normal couples, this would be unthinkable.

Camping together as a couple would not only prove to be enjoyable, it will also be one of a kind since only a few would think of such a trip as romantic. Aside from that, it will also be a kind of bonding for couple with nature and a variety of fun things to do

If you really haven’t thought of it, then you should start doing so. Here are a few reasons to convince you in doing such a thing:

1. Nature

Camping literally means that you are to stay in the middle of nature, may it be a sea shore, a forest, or an outback. Whatever it may be, it will be something to look forward to.

Waking up to beautiful landscapes is something, but waking up to beautiful landscapes and someone you’re contented to be with is definitely a wonderful feeling. Moreover, being in nature adds to the unique romantic twist as couples explore nature’s bounty, including waterfalls nestling in the heart of a forest and awe-inspiring city landscapes seen atop of a mountain.

What can be more romantic? Walking on a lonely trail hand-in-hand while whispering sweet nothings and sharing short stories will definitely make your heart pound, making you want to repeat the scene all over again.

2. Choice of Camping Spot

Another wonderful thing to look forward to when camping with your partner is the possibility of being allowed to choose your own camping spot, especially if you make a reservation in advance. Reserving a spot in advance will give you more chances of having your own choice.

If you’re going hiking while following a trail, you can choose a camping spot beside or near the trail to make the journey accessible and hard to lose. However, if you prefer to be alone whie you camp, you can opt and request for a camping spot near seclusion, a place inside the camping ground but with a safe distance from the others.

This will definitely make the trip more romantic and the two of you closer than ever, as you share many things while getting to know each other.

3. A Variety of Activities

Aside from the two reasons above, the other reason why you should definitely go on a camping trip, rather than simply going out like always, is the variety of activities you can do together.

For instance, you can choose which of the following activities you can do with regards to location: kayaking, hiking, surfing, mountain climbing, canoeing, windsurfing and etc. Doing these activities will not only bring you closer, as you spend more time with each other, it can also contribute to the compilation of memories you two will look back to with pleasure as you go back to your daily routines.

In fact, these activities can help you see the strengths and weaknesses of each one of you. By seeing this, you can then try to overcome these weaknesses together, as partners would.

All three encompasses great reasons for couples to spend their time on a camping trip. If you want to, you can plan ahead and check the camping spots which suit your and your partner’s taste, as well as the activities that come with it.

If you want it to be a surprise, plan something which your partner will definitely love. It would be perfect for a birthday treat and a simple holiday, just the two of you, together.

So, what are you waiting for? Start planning your trip now! It will definitely be something unique and fun.
