It is with two that you will have the happiness to program it and to live it. Let go and give free rein to your craziest desires for escape...

However, taking the time to live these “love getaways” is not as simple as it seems. However, there is no question of giving up the travel ideas that are bubbling up in people's heads!

  • Take the time to discuss it together: Before starting this magnificent project, share your expectations and your desires.

  • Choose a destination that you both like: depending on the travel time, the means of transport available and accessible to get around, the activities you want to practice and the places (mountains, countryside, big cities and capitals, national parks ….) that you want to discover.
  • Keep an eye on the wallet: Traveling as a couple is certainly a good alternative to save money, but be careful not to put your finances at risk.
  • No organization? a bit of organization? organization to the millimeter? It's up to you to decide how you want to design your trip.
  • During the trip, put the problems encountered into perspective and leave room for spontaneity. You are on vacation, you are there to relax; so no spat in the program and no place for the little hassles of everyday life. Your mission: leave all the stress at home.

The day after tomorrow, the world at your two feet.

A world tour? Why not ? Sailing for the most intrepid. On land in a motorhome or in the air from airport to airport. Beware of your doubts, the dream can perfectly become reality one day! The planets of long-term love, out of conviction and fidelity, can only align one day or another in the best possible way! While waiting for the rocket that will soon invite you to go see up there what is beyond the clouds, wouldn't a superb ballad between sky and earth in a hot air balloon be your first step slowly towards the unknown?

Returns from escapades are never made with indifference: our lovers are reassured to return home unscathed and hearts are filled with all these holiday memories. At the bottom of your indestructible couple, already sparkles the little spark that will make you set off again a little later towards new horizons. It is the simple life of a couple happy to live and love, to know how to trace in their own way and with their character their furrow of life in a mutual respect and a boundless complicity but also by leaving an incredible part of unpredictable and mystery not to be repressed!
