  • Take a Cooking Class - Cooking classes are a great way to learn how to do something new together plus you can share a delicious meal. Often you can find location-based cooking classes that will make you feel like a local, such as an Italian cooking class in Italy or a Mexican cooking class while vacationing in Mexico. On Valentines Day try out your new cooking talents with your partner. Decorate your kitchen in the country motif you are cooking to help inspire your atmosphere. Be sure to ask when you book your travel package with your travel advisor about cooking classes.
