I consider myself a romantic, but I’m definitely not the Paris&red roses&diner-at-a-restaurant type.
I rather have a special diner at home, just the two of us, no fuss, no other people around us. For me the flowers my husband gave me at our first date, 11+ years ago, are more romantic. Or the flowers we had at our wedding. Neither of them were roses.
As for romantic places, I love Gretna Green. All those historic novels with elopements to Gretna Green and secret marriages made this small Scottish village one of the most romantic places in the world, at least for me.
In the courtyard there are shops with interesting items, many of them with Scottish themes, a lot of highland cattle cards, stuffed toys, slippers and so on. Of course, there is whiskey and tartan bags.
