Summer Lovin'

by Danielle Pergament

It's ironic that few things are as unromantic as trips described as "romantic destinations." Utter those words to a travel agent or concierge and ready yourself for a vibrating bed, satin sheets, and some combination of red roses, baby's breath, and chalky chocolate pralines. But romance takes many forms—and they need not all be heart-shaped. Imagine the intimacy of a colonial hotel in Hanoi that inspired one of the world's great novelists, or a private voyage through the Alaskan archipelago where your only other company is a school of humpback whales. Or how about you and your lover jumping on a luxury train across the Russian countryside as you nibble on champagne and caviar? Take our hand, honey: We guarantee the only cheese you'll come across is the kind that accompanies a great wine.
