Leave to conceive
Why not leave stress and routine at home and take a trip to get pregnant.
 City life can be pretty stressful and demanding, often encroaching on our pleasure and TLC time. So people, if it takes you longer than a minute to recall the last time you and your partner had an intimate moment then a romantic getaway is certainly in order. Perhaps your relationship has become a little predictable – escaping the constraints of your comfort zones and reconnecting with your partner is a simple break away...  

Foreplay is always important:
The element of surprise can be overrated. Planning your escape to a secluded retreat and activities you’ll get to enjoy while away can add to the excitement of the trip. Have a look at these listings for some inspiration.

The quickie:
Getting away needn’t be an extended affair. A weekend away could be all the encouragement you need. Try a country farmhouse in the Overberg or a desert retreat in the Kalahari – a brief escape from the daily grind of life can work wonders.

Turning fantasy into a reality:
When choosing your holiday destination, use the opportunity to find out your partner’s sexual fantasy. Waterfalls or secluded rock pools can provide great inspiration. Zambia has plenty to offer with more than 17 waterfalls to choose from, including Victoria Falls.

Using your surroundings to make it fun:
A romantic getaway needn’t see the two of you holed up in your hotel room. This would be far too reminiscent of the bedroom don’t you think? Find out what activities or day-trips are on offer at your chosen destination. Nothing like a change of scenery to get your creativity flowing.

Variety is the spice of life
If you have the time, why not plan a road-trip that allows you to explore more than one village or town. The variety and sense of adventure is sure to filter-through to your relationship. Perhaps try a trip along the Garden Route or the Wild coast. Even a cruise with a stop-over at exotic destinations such as Zanzibar might be all the variety you need.

Finding that G-spot:
It’s important to remember why you decided to get away in the first place. Make it all about the two of you by cramming pampering and rejuvenating experiences into your trip. Capture the moments as reliving them once you return home could help you retain that holiday glow a little while longer.
