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!)!!!
