Are you an outdoor boffin? Or do you simply just want to get away from the city for a couple of days? If you want to do something a little bit different, then pack your bags and take your date to the beautiful countryside of Wales for a long weekend.
This is no ordinary camping trip, so forget your tents and cans of tinned meat. All you need is your sleeping bags and wellies. Why not go crazy and bring a duvet and pillow? After all, you will be staying in a huge renovated barn.
Barning as a date
I went ‘Barning’ a couple of years ago in Llanberis and it was literally one of the greatest things I’ve ever done. It’s the perfect place to let your hair down and de-stress away from your worldly worries. It’s a huge Barn, surrounded by beautiful green land. It is furnished with bunk beds, a kitchen and a massive living area; plenty of room for you and your date to explore (each other).
In the day time you and your date can take a long stroll and explore nature together. If walking isn’t really for you, then why not take a swim in the lake and afterwards enjoy a romantic picnic.
I know what you’re thinking; the outdoors must get pretty cold in the evening. Yes, but that’s why camp fires where invented. First, help each other build the camp fire and then snuggle up together under the stars and watch the world pass you by. If you’re peckish then whip out the s’mores, they are the perfect snack. If you’re still too cold then remember you have a bed and duvet waiting for you inside the barn.
Ever had a sexual experience outside? NO! Well here is your chance. If you our at that stage with your date, then perhaps lead them into the forest or find a space under a tree and get a little bit frisky (make sure you don’t get caught). How exciting! Your date will be sure to see your adventurous side and plus think how naughty you both will feel.
Now, I know this is not suitable as a first date, but certainly appropriate for perhaps your sixth, especially when you’re at that stage of really liking this person and beginning to explore different things with them. ‘Barning’ will allow you to strip everything away and get to know your date just that little bit more.
