Embarking on a series of spontaneous short getaways with my loved one has been an exhilarating journey filled with adventure, laughter, and unforgettable experiences. These impromptu escapes, fueled by spontaneity and a sense of wanderlust, have become cherished moments in our relationship, allowing us to explore new destinations, create lasting memories, and strengthen our bond in unexpected ways.

When I was asked about what made me reflect fondly on my recent traveling and why I enjoyed it so much, I realized before committing time for vacations, I was much like a cat going to the vet…all four legs out…fighting to not go in that cage for the trip!

Now, with the luxury of a lot of great memories, I can say that these things really stand out to me:

  1. Spontaneous Adventures:

The beauty of taking spontaneous short getaways is the thrill of embarking on unplanned adventures at a moment's notice. Whether it's a spur-of-the-moment decision to hit the road or a spontaneous booking of a last-minute flight, these impromptu escapes fill our hearts with excitement and anticipation. With no set itinerary or agenda, we let curiosity be our guide as we embrace the unknown and embark on spontaneous adventures together.

  1. Flexibility and Freedom:

One of the greatest joys of a short getaway is the freedom and flexibility. Without the constraints of rigid anja-Dt86cdOH-x4-unsplashschedules or long-term planning, we have the freedom to go wherever the wind takes us and seize opportunities as they arise. Whether it's exploring a nearby city, discovering hidden gems off the beaten path, or simply enjoying a leisurely drive with no destination in mind, these quick getaways allow us to embrace the freedom of the open road and create our own adventure.


  1. Bonding and Connection:

Last minute short getaways provide us with precious opportunities to connect on a deeper level and strengthen our bond as a couple. Whether we're navigating unfamiliar streets, trying new foods, orgift-habeshaw-V1sB2VwLNLQ-unsplash sharing moments of wonder and awe, these spontaneous adventures bring us closer together and create lasting memories that we treasure. This is when we truly appreciate each other's company and reaffirm the strength of our relationship.



  1. Living in the Moment:

Taking small last minute vacations encourages us to live in the moment and savor every experience to the fullest. With no time to overthink or second-guess, we immerse ourselves fully in the present moment, embracing the sights, sounds, and sensations of our surroundings. Whether it's watching a breathtaking sunset, stumbling upon a hidden gem, or simply enjoying each other's company, it reminds us to slow down, appreciate the beauty of the world around us, and live life to the fullest.

  1. Creating Unforgettable Memories:

Perhaps the most rewarding aspects of getting away with my loved one, even for a quick getaway, is the opportunity to create unforgettable memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. From spontaneous road enis-yavuz-isoiOTgWY9M-unsplashtrips and weekend adventures to unexpected discoveries and serendipitous encounters, each getaway becomes a chapter in our love story, a precious memory that we hold dear. We bask in the joy and adventure that life has to offer and leave us with a treasure trove of memories to look back on with fondness and nostalgia.


Final Thoughts:

As tough as it can be for me to break my daily grind and my usual weekend habits, taking spontaneous short getaways with my loved one has been a thrilling and rewarding experience that has brought us closer together, fueled our sense of adventure, and created lasting memories that we will cherish for years to come. These escapes serve as reminders of the beauty of spontaneity, the power of connection, and the magic of living life with an open heart and an adventurous spirit.

We did these quick 2-night getaways over the last 6 months:

  • Midweek in Newport RI at Ocean Cliff
  • Weekend on Cape Cod at The Cove at Yarmouth
  • Midweek in the White Mountains at InnSeason Resorts Pollard Brook
  • Weekend on the Coast of Maine at InnSeason Resorts Falls at Ogunquit

In all honesty, it really didn’t matter where we were going, just that we were going together to share experiences. What a fun way to, as Jimmy Buffet would say, “mental floss”!
