Mostly 1s - Mauritius
Your partner is a born romantic who likes nothing more than spending time with you. You’re with someone who likes the quiet life, relaxing and zero drama. Which is why somewhere like Mauritius would be the ideal destination for the two of you. Imagine the scene: you’ve hiked around a jungle trail, read your favourite books in your hammock made for two, snoozed under a palm tree and are now sitting down to an incredible meal. Sounds like heaven? Well, it’s just a plane journey away - so get booking!
Mostly 2s - Morocco
Your partner likes to live life on the wildside, and while they can’t sit still for one minute, they are a huge amount of fun to be around. Always coming up with things to do, new ideas and plans for the future, your partner takes life by the horns. Take them to Morocco where they can get their adrenaline kicks by dune buggying in the Sahara, haggling with traders in the souks and kite surfing across the Mediterranean Sea. The colour and energy of this magical country will certainly suit their joie de vivre.
Mostly 3s - Turkey
If your other half loves nothing more than preparing and eating good food and savouring the nicer things in life, a gastronomic tour of Turkey is just the ticket. Travel around this incredible country sampling the full range of flavours which are influenced from the Middle East, the Mediterranean, Europe and North Africa. The Turkish wine industry is growing at a quick rate, and there are vineyards to visit where you can try Kalecik Karası and Narince - two varieties which are gaining a lot of fans on the winetasting circuit.
Mostly 4s - Jamaica
You and your partner love the good life, and being the life and soul of the party, you want a place that will cater for your lust for life. Jamaica is not only an incredible holiday destination, but the rhythm and beats are infused into island life. Whether it’s a DJ setting up a sound system on the beach, or the seductive beats of dancehall - this is a place where there’s a party around every corner all set on one beautifully wrapped tropical island.
