5 Date Night Destinations

On the lookout for some unique date ideas to spice up outings with your partner? While there are movies, and museums, art galleries, and popular restaurants, I was curious to find some fun alternative places to go to enjoy date-night with your Geek. This past Valentine’s Day, Jay and I didn’t plan ahead this year to do much, other than catch up with a movie or two, but it still made me wonder what our city has to offer for its nerdish demographic. Here are five geek-love themed date ideas I found that you can do any time of the year, especially if you live in Toronto, (and if you don’t, I highly encourage to use Google to find local counterparts for these activities.)

Let's go to Miami @inkscrblr

I want to go to Miami! I was there as a teen, but that's been a few years now lol So I am living vacariously through Paula's post:

The perfect stopover before you leave for a cruise from the Port of Miami or maybe the ideal spot to visit with girlfriends.

In Miami just for the night? A few days? Or for a week away from home? Either way the Palms Hotel and Spa Miami is a tranquil oasis inspired by nature and also a family friendly, space to relax and kick back in the exciting and vibrant Miami Beach area.

Back to Zambia with @inkscrblr

Paula traveled with a group of journalists because they each received a Shot@Life fellowship in order to visit Zambia with the UN Foundation and tell the stories of vaccination and how vaccines change lives. This was a great opportunity and I was the only Canadian to receive the fellowship in 2016.

Zambia travel is a once in a lifetime, worthwhile, experience. With gorgeous vistas, the famous Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River, wildlife and the friendliest people you can imagine, Zambia might be one of the most remarkable places on earth. If you’ve never been to this exotic location, then the idea of Zambia travel can seem overwhelming. Here are some suggestions to make your trip to Zambia an epic one.

Zambia with @inkscrblr

Mom of 2 and health care advocate, Paula Schuck enjoys travelling with her family. This year she received the Shot@Life fellowship from the UN Foundation.

She visited Livingstone which is the Gem of Zambia!

Livingstone, Zambia is known as the Gem of Africa, with good reason. This October I visited Zambia and saw this gorgeous city up close. We stayed 3 nights in Livingstone, a stunning city with strong history. This historic city in Zambia has its own rich story worth discovering. And, it is also friendly, welcoming, and one of the most beautiful cities you could wish to see.

Where to go when

The world can seem like such a small place now that we are so globally connected. However, start making a list of places you want to travel to, and you start remembering how big it can truly be!  

It can be hard to know where to go first. But did you know there are better times of the year to go to certain destinations? Do you think that would help you decide where to go? Narrow it down a bit?

I know for my hubby he usually takes his vacation certain times of the year when things can go a little slower at work. Also with 3 boys in school we try to work around school vacations as well. That would narrow down when we are going. So now it's just a matter of picking where.

You know you need a family vacation, a place to go during activity breaks, what about a romantic vacation? Well there are 6 different vacation themes in this book:
  • Natural World
  • Unforgettable Journeys
  • Family Vacations
  • Luxury & Romance
  • Activity Breaks
  • Festivals & Culture

Where to Go When was written by a team of experts that know about travelling and destinations!

This book  combines useful information with gorgeous pictures to bring more than 130 global destinations to life.

No matter if you want to explore the Great Barrier Reef, enjoy Irish charm at the Galway Oyster Festival, go heliskiing in the Canadian Rockies, or relax in the crystalline waters of Croatia, this book can help you learn more about it, and when is the best time to go.

Where to go when is put into a simple month-by-month format, which makes it easy to navigate thus making finding the ideal getaway easier than ever.

You can search by:
- time of year
- type of vacation,
- simply flip through

 Where are you thinking about going on your next trip? When do you want to go?
