But sometimes, love can be a large bouquet of flowers, a handwritten letter or even a surprise weekend getaway to spend some quality time with your beau. Amid the din and hustle of city life, unending social obligations, and deadlines to meet, spending some cuddly moments and quality time with your partner can get challenging. So, we’d definitely recommend taking some time out of your hectic schedules and sneaking away for a romantic weekend.
