15 of the Most Romantic Places in the World (and None of Them Are Paris)
The Hollywood rom-com diet of romance that we've all grown up on leaves little wiggle room for deviation from what is considered to be "romantic." In almost all scenarios, the cookie-cutter recipe for romance is a couple on the tilt of love, a cutesy restaurant, a bread basket to share, and the Eiffel Tower prettily twinkling in the background. It's a stunning picture, but it's not the only option in the quest to inject a shot of romance into life. Whether you've got a partner to snuggle, a best pal to gallivant with, or wining and dining yourself as a well-deserved treat, dust off your suitcase and get ready to ooh, ahh, and indulge on a buffet of alternative romantic possibilities the world has to offer.
