After living abroad for about a year with my boyfriend, I’ve narrowed down the best places to go with a S.O. (because some places are just better with your girlfriends.)

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants proves that Santorini is magical no matter who you’re with, and it’s true – you really can’t go wrong…but, this place was made for love. Here’s why.

  • Views. #nofilter
  • Sunsets. All sunsets are romantic, but Santorini sunsets take it to a whole new level.

  • Caves. I mean look at these rooms.


  • Wineries
  • ATVs and boat cruises
  • Amazing dinners by the Aegean Sea, fresh seafood, private islands, crystal blue waters, blue domes, I mean, it’s just gorgeous, blue, and warm. Go in summertime.

Maybe I’m bias, but there is something so charming about this city.

  • The river and the bridges are perfect for strolling.

  • Tapas were made to be shared.
  • Parque María Luisa – just go there and you’ll understand.
  • Wine for days, see a theme?

4. Lucerne

I can’t speak for other seasons, but around Christmas it was amaze.

  • Colder temperatures, mountains, and snow makes for perfect snuggling conditions.
  • Fondue. So delicious and you’ve gotta share it.
  • Christmas markets. Strolling hand-in-hand under Christmas lights with glühwein wine, checking out all the little treats and trinkets was, for lack of a better word, magical.
  • Sledging. What better person to risk your life with than your PIC?


5. Strasbourg

  • Winding, little cobblestone streets with the cutest houses.
  • On the border of France and Germany, so you can share crepes or a brat smothered in sauerkraut.
  • He can have a pint of beer, you can enjoy wine. (or vice versa)
  • The perfect city to just stroll, explore, eat and drink without a huge list of sites to see. And it’s beautiful.
