The world is such a big and magnificent place. There are so many phenomenal places to visit, that when looking for a spot, we all tend to get overwhelmed.
When planning a trip, the first thing to think of is who you are traveling with, are you in a couple, or are you single? The answer to that question makes a big difference when thinking of a vacation destination.
As we all know, some places in the world are better when you are in a couple, while others are more enjoyable when you are single. A trip when your single versus when you are going with your significant other requires different things, which is what I am here to help guide you with.
From beaches to clubs and restaurants and activities, I have both done the research and traveled to most of these incredible destinations, allowing me to give you factual information in order to help you have a trip of your dreams.
That is why I thought it would be fun to find the best locations around the globe to go with your significant other as well as the best places to go if you are single and somewhat ready to mingle.

Montreal is an amazing city. It has a lot of history, amazing food and a touch of Europe. The fact that everyone speaks French makes you feel like you are somewhere super foreign when in fact you are in Canada.
