Melbourne is the second most populous city in Australia with a population of 4.25 million. It is the capital of the state of Victoria. Coming to Melbourne is both a learning experience of its rich history and an appreciation of its beauty.

Location and History

The Melbourne City Centre is the core of the greater metropolitan area. The metropolis is situated on Port Phillip, a huge natural bay, with its centre situated on the opening of the Yarra River at the northern part of the bay. The city then stretches south from the City Centre, beside the western and eastern shorelines of Port Phillip, reaching out to the hinterland

Melbourne was founded in 1835, almost half a century after the European settlement of Australia by settlers from Launceston in Van Diemen’s Land. It’s name was given by  Sir Richard Bourke, Governor of New South Wales in 1837, in honor of the British Prime Minister at that time, William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne.

Melbourne was officially declared a city in1847 by Queen Victoria and later became the capital city of the newly created colony of Victoria. This city was transformed into one of the world’s wealthiest and largest cities during the Victorian gold rush in the 1850s.  Melbourne then served as the interim seat of government in the newly created nation of Australia in 1901 until 1927.

Melbourne has been ranked as the world’s most livable city in 2011 and 2012 according to ratings published by the Economist Group’s Intelligence Unit.

Tourist Attractions

The Melbourne panoramic skyline at night is so beautiful.  The arrangement of the structures highlighted by the lights is spectacular. It is like a predesigned architectural work and an artistic masterpiece. The view of the different heights of the buildings is very much unified and there is oneness in the varied colors of the lights. The blackness of the sky at night completes the whole picture.

Other attractions mostly visited by tourists are the Shrine of Remembrance, the Federation Square, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, and the Royal Exhibition Building. All are breathtaking sights, meant to wow everybody.

For some shopping spree, many souvenirs are available at the Queen Victoria Market.  You will be fascinated by its dairy hall. Such a vast variety of goods are sold in the market that they may be overwhelming to even the most experienced shoppers.

Cafes are very much everywhere. There are bars too. There is one at Brunswick Street and others in Melbourne’s famed laneways. Drinking warm coffee or hot chocolate with a loved one and gazing at the beautiful sceneries is not a bad way of spending a lazy and relaxing afternoon.

There are more than a hundred art galleries ranging from small cooperatives to big establishments.

And for those who are tired from their travels, there are spas and bathhouses like the Hepburn Spring Spa to relax the body and clear the mind.

The sunny city of Melbourne will surely leave an indelible impression to anyone who comes and experiences its natural and man-made wonders. Couples will find the city’s landscapes and gorgeous sites very romantic settings for a warm and lovely vacation.

Travelling to places of great interest like theatres and opera houses can be a lot more fun if you tour around by two’s.  It is because the intensity and emotional involvement while into these entertainment places should be shared naturally with another person to capture and enjoy the moment all together, and the place to be is Sydney.

Theatres and Entertainment Centers

The Sydney Opera House is located at the northeastern tip of Sydney’s central business district. It was the Danish architect Jørn Utzon, who started the concept and was mostly involved in the construction of this opera house. The design is not only beautiful but also technically best for sounds and echoes built in for opera houses. This structure is a multi –purpose venue for the performing arts like ballet, classical and popular music, talks and plays for schools or the public, comedy and other theatrical shows. The picture of the theatre as seen from the outside is distinctly Sydney.

The Sydney Entertainment Centre is another multi-purpose building, located in Haymarket, Sydney, Australia. It was in 1983 that this centre was open to the public.  Some of its services include corporate functions and catering, corporate packages, and concert tours of artists performing live.

Museum and Stadium

Other than theatres and operas, Sydney has so much to offer in terms of museums, galleries, and stadium. The Powerhouse Museum is one part of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences in Sydney while the other is the historic Sydney Observatory located at 500 Harris St, Ultimo, still in Sydney.

Another museum in Sydney is the Museum of Contemporary Art which is solely dedicated to exhibition, collection and interpretation of contemporary art, both from within Australia and abroad.

Although the Sydney Stadium no longer stands today as such, yet it served as the center for entertainment and sports with a 10,000 capacity from 1908 to 1970.  This structure had to be demolished in favor of a railway system.

Other Art galleries in Australia include the Adspace Sydney, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Arts Centre, and many more. There are even museums and theatres in the Darling Harbour.

Harbors and Food Flavors

The Darling Harbour is next to the city centre of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

This harbor is  a favourite destination for leisure and entertainment for tourists and Australians alike with more than forty restaurants, cafes, and bars.  The place also has parks and a large recreational and pedestrian precinct that is situated on the western outskirts of the Sydney central business district.

Hopping, Shopping

From arts to museums, to harbors and food, let us go hopping on malls and start shopping, taking home with us not just memories but souvenirs too from Sydney. The Westfield Shopping Center which sells fashionable items like bags, shoes, women’s apparel, men’s attires, designers’ collections, and many more is only one of the many shopping locations. Other centers include the City Shopping Centre where fashion and shopping blend very well with the aesthetics of the building and the superb fashion designs.

After all the sightseeing and shopping done, what is left to see?  That is, you and me in Sydney.

Are you and your partner getting tired of the usual routine? Perhaps a romantic getaway is what you need; something to arouse the senses and wake the spirit. Here’s a glimpse of some very special destinations you just have to see. Take a look at these amazing hot spring getaways.

Costa Rica: Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort

Costa Rica is an absolutely beautiful country. The views are stunning and the pace is slow. The hills are tall, lush and green. It’s tropical. Volcano Arenal frequently rumbles in the distance, like a slow rumble of thunder. As night falls, you can hear the howler monkeys calling out from the lofty trees. And when you’re at the hot springs, you’ll hear the soft gurgling of the crystal clear hot water burbling to the surface in an array of pools. The setting is just spectacular.

For this hot springs experience, staying at the Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort is strongly encouraged. The accommodations here are 5-star quality, and the entrance fee to Tabacon Hot Springs is included in the price of your room, which alone is a $60.00 value. This resort has won numerous awards, too many for this article, and is ranked in the top 5 honeymoon destinations worldwide. National Geographic Magazine ranked this resort as one the world’s top ten eco-spas. You simply can’t miss with this destination; my number 1 pick.

Australia: Peninsula Hot Springs

These hot springs are located hilltop and offer wonderful views of the surrounding hills. Once you enter into the bathing area, you feel as if you’ve been transported into a different world. The sound of the running water soothes the mind and soul as you relax in these soft, warm waters. Centrally located only 90 minutes from Melbourne, these springs are not far from the city, but make you feel as if you are far, far, away.

These mineral springs are said to contain numerous therapeutic benefits including: the alleviation of neuralgia, rheumatoid arthritis, stiffness of the shoulders, muscle soreness, recovery from fatigue, and enhancing fertility.

Iceland: Hveravellir Geothermal Area

This is a breathtaking hot spring and geothermal area, an absolute must see if you’re fortunate enough to visit Iceland. The accommodations on-site are rustic and not very private; however, there are luxury hotels nearby and the springs are completely magnificent.

Both hot and cold water flows at Hveravellir geothermal pool. The water is sparkling and always extraordinarily clean. The medicinal qualities of these waters have been scientifically proven. From the pool, you’ll have magnificent views of the geothermal area, and the Kjalhraun lava field. A stunning and unforgettable experience. There’s only a few things in life that might possibly compare to the experience you’ll have at Hveravellir Hot Springs.

Northern New Zealand: Rotorua Polynesian Spa

Located in the North Island’s thermal region, this Polynesian spa was recently in the 2011 Reader’s Spa Awards and were listed in Condé Nast Traveler’s Top 10 destinations. Take your pick out of the 26 pools you’ll have to choose from. You won’t ever want to leave this paradise. These natural hot springs have been used by the locals since the early 19th century. Additionally, you’ll find mineral pools, hot pools, and even mud baths with therapeutic and relaxing properties all within the vicinity.

Southern New Zealand: Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools

On the New Zealand’s South Island, lies the gorgeous town of Hanmer Springs. If you want to woo your sweetheart, this romantic getaway offers overnight Valentine’s packages, complete with passes to the hot springs, chocolates, and breakfast too. The resort offers a wide variety of choices, and reasonable prices too, if you take advantage of their special promotions. Indulge yourself in this dreamy environment.

The world class spa experience is the ultimate form of relaxation. The staff specialize in luxurious skin treatments and several types of massage. This is my choice 2 for a couples getaway.

After you get married, the next thing you will want to do is honeymoon. Australia gives you many options for your honeymoon. Sydney is the most popular place for visitors. You can go to Opera House and  explore the big  city. If you want more nature, Gold Coast might be your choice; a well-known place for surfing and ocean. There are many ocean front hotels on the Gold Coast. Don’t forget book your hotel in Gold Coast with Expedia. So you can relax or enjoy a beautiful paradise at your honeymoon hotel.

4. Paris

Paris has long been a place for romance, art & history. If you’re looking fo an exquisite city with beautiful landmarks, then Paris might be the wedding spot for you. With beautiful museums, private gardens, and the iconic & romantic landmark, The Eiffel Tower, you and your guests are sure to fall in love again and again.

5. The Cook Islands

If you are looking for a beautiful and tropical paradise to say your vows in, the Cook Islands may also be for you. Endless beaches, crystal blue water, beautiful blue skies and plenty of bright flowers. Many vendors can plan your perfect wedding whether it be on a gorgeous beach, in a tropical garden or keeping it formal in a traditional church. Some places will even set you up to arrive to your ceremony in a canoe to the tunes of local musicians.

Although getting married in a foreign country is rarely easy (always look up the legalities before planning), it’s sure to be worth a few months of hassle to have lasting wedding photos under the lights of the Eiffel Tower.

They say that sometimes life beats movies, but nevertheless, motion pictures can feed our vivid imagination and they can leave us wanting to relive the famous scenes which have touched our hearts. Couples who love both movies and globetrotting can be inspired from the following movies and locations.

Casablanca

The 1942 classic movie “Casablanca” starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman is the most romantic movie of all times. Humphrey Bogart plays Rick Blaine and Rick s cafe is an important setting in Casablanca. Many scenes are shot there, including Rick s reunion with the love of his life, Ilsa Laszlo, played by Ingrid Bergman. Casablanca is not only the title of the film, but it is also a city in Morocco. Couples who love this romantic drama can recreate the famous scene from “Rick s Cafe Americain” . The chosen location to reenact the romantic scene should be a jazz bar or club in the city of Casablanca. You can even ask the band to play the famous song, Rick and Ilsa s song “As time goes by” and you can even utter the famous lines said by Ilsa -” Play it again, Sam” and by Rick -”Of all the joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.”

Love Affair

The 1994 movie “Love affair” starring Warren Beatty and his wife, Annette Bening and Katherine Hepburn as “Aunt Ginny” is a remake after the 1939 movie with the same name with Irene Dunne. Couples who have been touched by this movie can be inspired from it to recreate for themselves the scene on the exotic island . The characters landed accidentally on this island, because their plane which was headed to Sydney, Australia had to land forcefully. . The scene on this peceful and serene island in the Pacificis very romantic, because this is the location where they bond and begin to have feeling for each other. Couples can choose any exotic island near Australia to give a boost to their relationship so that it can improve and flourish to the maximum. Although the characters promise each other to meet , that scene never happens, because she suffers an accident and becomes paralyzed.

The Notebook

“The Notebook” is a movie based on the Nicholas Sparks s novel with the same name. The movie stars are Ryan Gosling, who plays “Noah Calhoun” and Rachel McAdams who plays “Allie Hamilton”. The characters fall in love at a carnival on Seabrook Island, in South Carolina. The most romantic scene in the movie, which couples can choose to recreate, occurs in an old, abandoned house in the same location, which Noah ends up buying especially for Allie. Couples can find a secluded house on one of the “sea islands” in South Carolina, such as Seabrook, where they can strengthen their relationship. The location is 20 miles inland, between Savannah, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is a film from 1961 starring Audrey Hepburn as “Holly Golightly” and George Pepperd as “Paul Varjak”. Holly is an extravagant cafe society girl who, although she loves Paul, decides to leave for Brazil. Paul had engraved the ring from Doc Golightly at Tiffany& Co. on Fifth Avenue , but he never manages to give it to her as a present. The famous and final scene of the movie occurs when he releases her cat and emerges from the yellow cab to toss the ring into her lap and to tell Holly to analyze her life. Together they go in search of the cat and they rediscover their relationship. The scene can be recreated by couples who loved the film, somewhere on the Fifth Avenue in New York, on a rainy day, with or without a cat. Rain is a spectacular force of nature which brings couples together and strengthens their bond and mutual understanding.

When Harry Met Sally

This movie s characters meet when they share a cab to New York City and then they keep bumping into each other every five years, in a New York airport and bookstore. The famous and classic scene when Sally fakes an orgasm and which was shot at the deli Katz’s Delicatessen in Manhattan is the most memorable and funniest scene of all times. Couples who are more audatious and outspoken can give the scene a try, not so obvious though, and even reenact the reply “I will have what she is having”.

Other inspiring scenes from movies which adventurous couples can recreate include the breathtaking scene atop Empire State Building from the 1993 romantic drama “Sleepless in Seattle” starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, where they can take their relationship to another level or going on a cruise ship to reenact the scenes from “Titanic”.

Christmas is just days away and you are racking your brains thinking up some cool gift ideas for your partner. Here we list some practical and different gift ideas that would make ideal presents for people who love taking off to different destinations at the drop of a hat.

Travel Kits For Toiletries Or A Passport Pouch

Let’s start with the very simple and mundane. A travel kit for toiletries is such a essential item that keeps all of the we need neatly organized and readily accessible. A toiletry kit that has space for tooth brushes, tooth paste, soap, shampoo, razors, shaving kit, sewing kit, extra batteries, medicines, torch and other bits and pieces is a great gift for people who make many trips in a year. In fact many folks who travel frequently have these always readily stocked and packed to take off at a moment’s notice.

A pouch to keep your passport, wallet and airline tickets is also great idea for a gift to a travel mad person. They will truly appreciate these items when it’s such a struggle juggling luggage, backpacks and passports at the customs or immigration counter at a remote location of world say Perth or Jakarta.

Sturdy Backpacks

Backpacks can never be a bad gift for partners who travel a lot. There are backpacks of different sizes and capacity suitable for travel of different durations. Check out the pack that they already have and pick one of different size. So, they have a bag whether its for a weekend or a whole week. Make sure it has lot of pouches for different items to be stored away when moving from place to place.

Books

Books are great traveling companions especially on long trips. These makes great gifts for people who love to read in addition to traveling. A book helps keep boredom away when you are cooped up in an airplane for hours on end. Choose books that your partner likes to read about. Maybe it is about the destination he/she is dreaming of visiting for long. For example if your partner has always dreamed about visiting Egypt then books on history of Egyptian Pharaohs or their Pyramids can make for interesting Christmas gift ideas. If its Paris they dream about, then books about places to visit and things to do in Paris will make a great gift idea.

Trekking Poles

If your partner loves trekking or backpacking then trekking poles are a gift idea that will be appreciated. It makes walking or trekking on rough and dangerous terrain easy and less stressful on knees and joints. There are range of trekking poles available in different types of light-weight materials. Research well and pick a model that has a good grip, is of the right length and suited for the type of trekking/hiking that your partner does.

iPod/iPad/Laptop

Electronic gadgets are always great for Christmas gift ideas. If you are flying to the Bahamas or Hawaii what would you like as a travel companion? Many people would readily choose an iPod or an iPad. These make traveling fun. Download thousands of songs and enjoy music for hours on your iPod. Read books, play games or work on your iPad. Laptop is another useful travel companion. You can watch movies or keep in touch with friends and family by updating them about your travel status on your Facebook account.

Camera

When traveling, it is always best to go in a group. As the common saying goes, “The more, the merrier.” Though this is true for many travelers, others believe that traveling with a partner is better since there it only requires fewer things to attend to, plus you get more alone time for a little loving ;-)

Benefits of Traveling With a Partner

Couples, whether married or not, can travel together. In fact, this is when they get to spend a lot of quality time together, especially if they seldom see each other back in their busy day-to-day lives. For most couples, going on a vacation together is one of the precious moments they can cherish for the rest of their days.

If you want to travel as a couple, here are some of the benefits you can enjoy:

1. Cost

When you travel as a couple, you have the option to split the expenses. A man paying for all the expenses is an old tradition and couples are now modern and open minded. Everything becomes light and easy if shared, so couples have great advantage when it comes to expenses and money matters.

2. Time

Some couples seldom see each other due to the nature of their work. The only time that they get to spend time together is during a vacation. If you travel with your partner, you can have the quality time you need in order to catch up and deepen your relationship and commitment to each other.

3. Sharing

A couple may share in everything. Aside from the expenses, one of the best things they get is good memories together. Being with someone you love on a foreign land is a good way of sharing your love for each other.

4. Care

For couples, taking care of each other comes naturally. When in other places, you tend to care for each other more. In case of danger, the other partner can also come to the rescue.

Downfall of Having a Travel Partner

After learning the benefits, it is also important to know the disadvantages of traveling as a couple. Though ideally, it is a positive memory to have, there are instances when it becomes a challenge for both of you.

If you have an argument before going on a vacation, the tendency is for you to bring the conflict with you. This is something that every couple should avoid because it can ruin the whole vacation. If possible, settle everything first before going on a vacation.

Being together for several days can also initiate conflicts. If you are not used to being together day and night, a few days of vacation may cause a fight due to having individual differences. For some couples, arguments are inevitable, so try to focus on the fun parts of your vacation as much as possible, and give each other room to breathe when necessary.

Being with a partner can limit your opportunities to meet new people. There are some couples whose world only revolves around each other. In such cases, the idea of meeting others isn’t an option. If your partner is conservative, that may also limit you from talking to strangers or finding new friends.

Generally, travelling is a fun activity especially when shared with the people you love. Whether you are with a partner, family, or friends, make sure that every minute together is cherished.
