Adventures are what keeps us all alive and energetic. And traveling is a huge part of it. The experience you gain out of wandering from big cities to smaller and modest cities brings along loads of joyful memories. It gets more exciting if your new love is part of it. Because secretly we still don’t fully trust strangers. So taking the brilliant decision to travel with your new bae is without any doubt a step forward towards progress. There couldn’t be a more fanciful way to get to know your new inamorata and do some emotional bonding. Without any outside influences from both circles. Just you and

There couldn’t be a more fanciful way to get to know your new inamorata better and do some emotional bonding. Without any outside influences from both circles. Just you and bae spending a petit alone time abroad. While sipping on cocktails under the sun anywhere but here.

But before you book that romantic trip to an exotic destination you need think ahead. After much anticipation, we came up with a few places you should absolutely not travel to with your new lover. If you care about keeping up with appearances, you might consider reading on. Because avoiding these next 5 places will only work in your favor.

South Philippines

In general, the Philipines is a very big and pleasant country. And don’t let us get started with the beautiful islands. However, the isle has several locations to dodge especially in the south. Where the terror group’s ambition is to kidnap wealthy foreigners. In order to get a high ransom from their families. Or money changers trying to rip you off, that’s awful.

It’s clear that nobody wants to travel looking like a hobo, only to feel more secure. So let’s cancel the thought of planning that trip.

Pasar Burung market ( Bali)

Even abroad local markets are fun to visit. It’s the moment we all reserve to buy souvenirs for our beloved ones back home. Also, these markets are an easy access to the culture. Although you don’t want to take your lover to the Denpasar market. Let us tell you why.

Pasar Badung is a bird market in Indonesia. Next to trading the cutest little birds they also do some dirty things, we’re not proud of. Selling illegal birds and other animals captured in the Indonesian jungle. We couldn’t imagine innocent monkeys, cats, squirrels and so on trapped in cages. Sorry Bali, not a big fan of your illegal extinction of these poor innocent creatures.

Places to Absolutely Not travel with your new love

Benidorm

25 miles away from the beaches of Alicante you’ll come across the fallen city of Benidorm. What once was a charming Spanish town became a hotspot for the ratchet Jersey Shore crowd. The authorities are doing all that’s in their power to upgrade Benidorm’s status. But for now, we’re ABSOLUTELY not booking any flights towards that direction.

Lloret De Mar

Like Benidorm, Lloret De Mar failed us! Mainly known as a post-high school graduation getaway, the chance you’ll make very young drunk friends is huge. And we don’t know if that’s what you need on your duo vacay.

Any fast food joint abroad

With all the affordable restaurants out there you can’t be eating fast food on a trip. That’s not a tale that should make your book of voyages. In the end, McDonald’s or KFC doesn’t exactly exude romance.
Conclusion: this is no place to take your date to. If you care you’ll do the effort.
