If staying in your own home for a vacation doesn’t seem like such an escape, but you’ve still got a limited budget for travel, consider going camping.
You can often borrow the tents and other necessary camping equipment from friends and family. The site fee for most camping spots is negligible. Your food costs are limited to hot dogs and marshmallows if you’re cheap. So, camping can definitely be done inexpensively.
When you go, you will have the fun of pitching the tent (that can provide a lifetime of memories if you’re inexperienced). Then, you can make a campfire and roast weenies and later marshmallows. Cuddle up under a blanket and watch the stars come out as you talk about your hopes and dreams for the future.
Later, you can zip your sleeping bags together for a cozy night.
If you have a couple of days for camping, you can spend the daytime hiking, fishing, or participating in other outdoor activities that are not available closer to home.
Relive Your First Date
Perhaps the most romantic date idea I have for you is to relive your first date. Some first dates are over the top, but most of the time, you don’t invest a lot of money in someone you have just met. So, reliving your first date may not be all that expensive.
If you went to a restaurant, go back. If the man brought the woman flowers, get the same kind and give them to her again. Duplicate the event to the greatest extent possible.
Reliving your first date will bring back a wealth of memories that you can talk about. You will also be able to talk about how far you have come and where you are going.
If you are planning to propose to your significant other, one of the most romantic things you can do is replicate your first date, and then at the end, instead of giving her a chaste goodnight kiss, get down on one knee and have a ring handy.
