The Big Question

In honour of Valentine's day, we asked loved-up Parisians and Londoners to tell us their favourite pet names for their honeys. 

    • Paris - the Palais Royal gardens / @LostNCheeseland

      There is little more subjective than what constitutes a romantic experience, particularly in a city like Paris whose very image is idealised and romanticised. It’s a place meant to inspire passion, amorous trysts and emotional awakening, or at least there is the belief that these things are possible if ones heart is open to it.

    • Beautiful Brussels /

      Famous for being the capital of Europe and world-renowned for its chocolate and beer, everyone claims to know Brussels… This city will astound you because she’s so romantic! But who knows all the different faces of Brussels and particularly the charm of this one place?

    • Feel the love in Bruges /

      Bruges (free translation: Bridges) has everything to honour its name with its characteristic bridges over the canals. It is a relatively small city but makes up for that with its allure and rich history.

    • Lyon oozes romance from its very pores / @EmilyCommander

      From candlelit bouchon to hidden traboule, Lyon not only speaks the language of love, but oozes romance from its very pores. If, however, your love requires some privacy, you may struggle to find a setting not already draped with amoureux.

    • Amsterdam for two /

      A little while ago someone reminded me that people traveling to Amsterdam are always on the look-out for 24/7 fun, but people that actually live in Amsterdam, are always searching for the hidden, quiet places. And yes, that’s a fact.
