Intimate Getaways : Blue Sun Romance

Parrot in a treeTo Travel is to Openly remind the Soul that we Belong to something Incredible!

When we think of eloping off together to places unknown with our simple spirits and wanderer’s eyes, we discover exotic and mysterious corners of the world we would like to say we’ve known for years, and we court a playful imagination and allow a touch of dignity to bless our lives.

In finding the beauty of an idea, or to see it on a piece of land we’ve never been, like the serenity of a Karesansui (Japanese sand garden) in Kyoto, or the sanctuary for Emperor Penguins on the far side of Antarctica’s Ross Ice Shelf, we can find enchantment that we share such a place on this earth with many, many others – Animals, Friends, and Nature.

Lovers can delight in the most humble of getaways, where an innocuous row boat on a tranquil, town pond, can transform you into swashbucklers who conquer the seas. Or a horseback jaunt through a peaceful meadow or Costa Rican jungle finds you in the role of Prince, or Cowboy (Vaquerro), or Proud Indian Archer. Be you Playwrights, or Climbers, or simply relax by a pool. Any indulgence can be yours when you plan together in love.

Elder Oh, and to watch faraway people in their everyday lives. From an armada of scooters jamming Parisian streets on a brisk morning commute, to the ceaseless cackle of venders pushing shrimp baskets and mackerel in Seattle’s sprawling seafood emporiums, there is a predictable element that people everywhere are always on the move, yet humbled enough to stop for a friendly ‘Hello’. These are the gifts travel brings us when we go to new worlds.


We met a woman at the trailhead after finishing our trek out from Peru’s Huascaran Peak. As each trip has a few defining moments, for us it was meeting this lady. On climbs like we just encountered you get to spend a lot of time interacting with the local people, learning their cultures and enjoying their company. This lady used two canes to help her walk and she moved very slowly. It took her 30 minutes to go about 100 yards down this dirt road to where we sat waiting for the burro teams to bring our gear off the trail. She positioned herself across from us and just sat and watched. Right before we were going to leave I approached her and held out my camera to let her know I wanted to take her picture. Neither of us said anything but she knew what I wanted to do. I kneeled down in front of her where she was sitting. As I prepared my shot she was preparing herself as well. Straightening her scarf and her hat, she gave me her best, worldly smile. Beautiful. Without knowing it she presented to me in this one photo what everyone else I met in Peru showed me throughout our trip, a sense of style, pride, joy, and endurance. After taking the picture I turned the camera around to show her the shot. She lit up with pride. I bowed to her and thanked her in my best Spanish. What an amazing people.

-- Craig Julian, Alpinist and Mountaineer, Huaraz, Peru, Aug, 2008


Romance and Travel
go hand in hand. Plan a journey you can feel wondrous about, relish in your partner’s anticipation for making love with you, and enjoy the aphrodisiac of dinner with your Lover in a thatch grass hut on a private, empty beach with tiki lamps and hypnotic ocean sounds. Or, find your way into the luxury of satin sheets in a Five Star Hotel, with unquenched desires for each other, aching to share passion as comfortably as you’ll share your great minds and humor, appreciative points of view, and the softest of each other’s touch.

You may long for Sedona, or to enjoy the bustle of a thriving Manhattan, or take a photo safari to Kenya or Egypt, or simply visit Disneyland or L.A.’s Griffith Park Zoo, but you will find suggestions and prompts awaiting you on some totally Intimate Getaways with all our resources and destinations listed below. These great references can provide you the ingredients for a marvelous journey; you bake the masterpiece and then fully enjoy the results!

Travel on a shoestring with the budgeting best, or go in the lap of expanse with tours and outings fit for the Royals. Take an Edlewise motorcycle tour through Europe, climb with guides up Alaska’s great Denali peak. Or, just try a local Bed and Breakfast in your own home town. The choice is yours - Earth is open!

In Romance and in Love! We hope you enjoy our highlighted vacation selections. The idea is not to convince you that one location is any better than another, but rather to spark your curiosity and go out and explore the world on your own.

… In Romance and in Love - Just Go!
