Can camping be romantic?

A place to talk about anything well just about anything (this is a family show remember).

Don't worry treehouse it took me a while to understand the TLA's (thats two/three letter acronyms).

I first thought that LOL (which is Laugh Out Loud) might have stood for Lots of Love, thinking they were a really really friendly bunch. :grin:

Turns out they were only really friendly. :grin:

Yeah...oops. My wife read my post...and...er...educated me. :oops:
We ran out of $$ on our honeymoon and spent the last night camping. I thought it could still be romantic, but I haven't livrd it down for the last 8 yrs. It might have somethin to do with the fact that it was nearly dark on arrival, and the only spot within miles...was taken, and when I turned the motor off, the radiator in my torana dropped all its water. I wasn't worried, but she'll never see camping as romantic again lol...damn it.

I have only one thing to add to this conversation:

We just celebrated 10 years this year, and have learned that any quiet time without child in tow that you can get can be romantic, no matter what time of day. If it's a beatiful place, then even better. A camping trip with lots of food, a good fire and ::() sounds great to me!

While we ended up with a free night in a city hotel for our 10th anniv. (thanks mum!), we had the idea that we would head off on a horse-riding weekend, preferably camping. Chocolate, champagne, and time in a day spa at the end of the horse riding were on the "essentials" list. Think I might book it for next year...

We spent part of our honeymoon camping and backpacker hosteling in SW WA. We flew over there from Melb, hired a car and borrowed camping gear from a friend. Watching the sun rise from Wave Rock (the only quiet part of the day before the tourist buses roll in), with DH was the most romantic part of our trip.

What wasn't so romantic was eating a fly-ridden lunch at the Dog Cemetary at Corrigin. It was hilarious though, we couldn't stop laughing at how funny it was being in such an odd, fly-infested place in the middle of nowhere. Also, being told by the owner of a backpacker's lodge in Esperance that we weren't "real backpackers" or "real honeymooners" wasn't so romantic either. Duh, must have been the hire car and old married look that gave us away (we had been maried 2 years before we could afford a honeymoon). At least spending time in backpacker's hostels made us feel young... LOL!

Whatever you do, enjoy your camping anniversary (sans kids!)!!!

Sorry to bump up an old post.
I just got back from camping this weekend; only one night,
We stayed in Dwellinup, my partner and I, and it was certainly very romantic.
Let's just say as we were falling asleep she told me she thinks it was the best ::() she'd ever had.
Nothing like having a crack next to a roaring fire. :grin:

It's also great when there is people camping nearby.
You know, a bit of excitment, hoping not to get spotted :+

I thought it might be nice to go camping to celebrate it, a whole weekend without the kids, by a nice river etc.

How can I make it more romantic and a surprise to my man?
