Romance and the Rites of Spring

Let me tell ya ’bout the birds and the bees
And the flowers and the trees
And the moon up above
And a thing called “Love”

We can thank Jewel Akens for those words and a reminder of what spring brings to mind. We re-establish our relationship with the sun and reconnect with people. Winter so often sends us into doldrums that spring really becomes a time of awakening.

As we watch the buds bloom on bare tree branches we know that we too can bloom. The butterflies and honeybees are looking for nectar and the flowers beckon them with bright colors. Human beings are not much different.

Now is the time to refresh for your new venture into romance or maybe spruce up the one you have. Pack a picnic basket and head for one of our great parks, like the glorious forests of  Shenandoah or the wonderful waters of Assateague. You can even take the metro to the National Mall and take in the sites while sharing the fun with someone new or someone already special in your life.

If its raining, make some popcorn, snuggle up, rent Fantasia and enjoy the music and imagery that came long before MTV and Anime.

But the sun will shine and a warm wind will blow most days. Unique Events can help make those days special with Getaway and Date Night plans.

Even Cruises are affordable and really give you a chance to see the world.

Send us an email and ask how we can make your spring something to remember.

Romance and Adventure on the High Seas

After climbing the Mayan temple at Xunantunich and walking the ruins at Tulum I could almost see the civilization in its glory. The connection with nature exuded from every stone and love and belief in life danced at Tulum. Just an fyi, 2012 is NOT the end of the world. Our guide was a native Mayan and explained that in 2012 the calendar resets and new cycle begins, as if it were a new century, exciting but far from fatal.

The romance of past civilizations and the mark they leave on today is amazing. Having the opportunity to travel is such an incredible gift. We learn that although there are differences we also learn that family is pretty much the same all over and people want the same things, to provide safe and secure surroundings, enjoy the simple pleasures of a good meal and good company, to watch children play and grow and as couples grow old together in peace.

Whether you explore 30 miles or 30,000 miles from home, do explore. You will grow as a person, become entwined in a new kind of romance and establish one more very real connection with the world and bring it home to share with others.

Cruising is a great way to see the world, but planes, trains and automobiles work too. Plan a Getaway for a weekend or week and refresh yourself while you soak in the wonders of the world.

Unique Events would love to give you the romance and adventure you deserve.
