We love to travel, but sometimes it just isn’t possible to go away to a place of your dreams. That’s the idea behind this week’s theme.
Pick a country you’ve always wanted to go to and plan a night around that country. Since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up you could plan a date around Ireland. 🙂
Plan your meal searching the internet for authentic recipes, if you want to cook. Or you could order take-out at a nearby restaurant specializing in your country of choice.
Plan an activity or game that originated in the country you’ve chosen. For example, Croquet for England, Clogging for Ireland. You could do a jigsaw puzzle of a landscape from your country. You could also watch a travel video about your country. This doesn’t count as a movie since you would be learning about the country you’re “visiting.”
Make a Pandora Station of music from your country.
And finally, don’t forget to take a picture of the two of you. What’s a vacation without a photograph to remember it by?
What country have you always wanted to visit, but haven’t been able to yet? Can you think of a way to bring this country to you? We can’t wait to hear what you do.
Love this idea, Debi! We went to Germany a few years ago, and I could pull out all the stuff we brought home for a remembrance date!
Great idea, Lori! Don’t forget your Lederhosen. 🙂
dying to go BACK to Ireland, actually. Our last big vacation before kids was there… best vacation of my life, without question. Very eager to relive it – and even share it with my kids!
Go for it! You can relive the time in your own home, Brian. Can’t wait to hear how it goes.
Can’t wait for our date tomorrow night. We’re going to England to Downton Abbey. 🙂 Who knew it was right in our own dining room. Just wish we could find Mrs. Patmore to come for the evening…and Daisy too!
