You might want to spend some travel time with your loved one—going around the world. AirTreks.com offers “Round-The-World” tickets with a customizable itinerary of cities around the world that you can choose to visit during a specific period of time. AirTreks.com also offers set multi-international-city specials for lower prices, such as the “Matt Lauer Special,” which stops in New York, Buenos Aires, Madrid, Amsterdam, Istanbul, Mahé (in the Seychelles), Bangkok, Vientiane and Luang Phraban (Laos), and Hong Kong, before returning back to New York—all for $3,795.
The Star Alliance offers a “Round the World” fare with specific prices if you’d like to spend time exploring one continent.
In fact, virtually every international airline offers some version of the RTW ticket—as do their alliances, such as OneWorld and Sky Team.
If you are looking for something closer to home, why not take a train ride to a romantic destination? American Orient Express offers train vacations with deluxe accommodations, similar to those provided in hotels. For example, their Transcontinental Rail Journey will take you from coast to coast to explore the ins and outs of our nation while you’re sitting comfortably in your sleeper car.
You could also turn off your cell phones and head out somewhere remote, like the Rabbit Hill Inn in Lower Waterford, Vt., which has no Internet access or television, so you’ll be able to spend quality time with your significant other without any distractions.
