This December, we’ll be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary. I know right, where did the time go? We’re planning on going away to celebrate our milestone and we’re planning on going without the kids. Yay! We’ve jotted down a few quick anniversary escape destinations that we’ll probably be choosing from. All of them are based in the Western Cape so if you’re not from around here, you’ll possibly need to add a flight booking to your itinerary.
We haven’t actually been away alone as a couple, since we had children 11 years ago so I think its safe to say that we are definitely due for a romantic getaway. I guess you kinda get caught up in planning everything around the kids, not realizing that they actually will survive without mom and dad for a few days. Its nothing that ma and grandpa can’t handle.
Where to start
Getting away is all in the name of slowing down that I spoke of earlier this month. Its time to stop adulting and parenting so hard, and start slowing down, and plan a romantic getaway for two.
First of all, you’ll need to decide on a budget and work around that. That will determine how far you’re going to go and how long you’re going to stay. Then, other than some amazing quick anniversary escape destinations that I’m going to share with you, I have one little gem of advise for you: Plan ahead. Plan for everything. Arrange your baby sitters now. Get your travel gear.
The thing that makes travelling enjoyable, is having planned ahead. You get to enjoy your holiday without the unnecessary stress of running around at the last minute and possibly into your holiday. So start from now, jot things down and do your research. Well, you’re here, so thats a start.

Its the perfect home away from home, tucked away in the mountains, and equipped with everything you need, even that hot tub!
