If you are like us, the anticipation of your next trip and the process to plan it are almost as fun as the vacation itself. In fact, studies show that many people are happier during the planning process than when on the actual vacation. This makes a lot of sense when you start to think about it. The average American receives only two weeks a year to potentially spend exploring the world, while we have the other 50 weeks to dream about our next adventure and plan for it.

About this site - View from Eze, France

Finding beauty from around the world (Eze, France)

That’s why we created Romantic Travel Report. You must make the most of the little time you have each year to explore the world and seek new adventures.

Romantic Travel Report is both a site where we will share our personal travel stories in the form of travel reports to help inspire you and be a resource with tips, news, and other travel related information to maximize your romantic experiences. We want to help you bring love and travel together to keep the romance alive in your relationship.

The site is organized by the following main sections below for you to explore. Happy planning!
