Theme parks aren’t normally the number one date location, however a little excitement can be a great way to bond during a first date. It’s a useful way to ensure there won’t be any awkward silences too. Read more about how this can be the perfect date in our Great Date Guide here.

If you are looking for someone who shares your passion for travel, why not suggest a first date at a cafe in the airport lounge to share tales of your favourite trips?

In fact, the hassle of an airport lounge or the boredom of the train need not just test your nerves: with a bit of courage they can offer perfect opportunities to strike up conversations. Whether you connect over missed connections or strike lucky during a strike, take your chances and who knows where you’ll be heading.
