What better way to explore the coolest cafes, quirky shops, and fun hotspots!
This date idea starts with giving her 30 photos of random spots around the city – the fun part is she’s the tour guide who needs join the dots!
Start by Googling your area for cool things to do
Walk around them all taking photos on your phone. Print these out ready to give to her
When you arrive at the 1st photo let her guide the two of you around
You might need to give the occasional hint (or malevolent laugh)
As well as looking like you’ve spent hours planning this there’s going to be a special stop along the way:
First thing is to work out where you’re going to go (don’t worry this is easier than it seams)
Just Google self-guided walking tour <city name> and there will be one already made for you. They also tell you all the cool factoids about the area so it looks like you’re in the know!
This Arcades and Lanes one only took a few seconds to find and comes with a full map!
You don’t have to go everywhere on the walk so customize it to what you’re both into and how much $$ you have for the date. Feel free to change the stops if you’re married or been together for a while
Save the walking tour pdf to your phone as you’ll need it to take the photos before the date begins
At a second hand book store, couples massage or doing a coffee Crawl
Grab your phone and walk the tour taking a photo every 50 or so steps. This should only take 1 hour as you’re not stopping at anything
It can be hard to follow a trail from just from photos so make sure the photos are of iconic things that stand. Also don’t forget to include the bars and shops you think she’d like to stop at
You should have about 30 shots in the end to print out. Chicks usually love photos so more just add to the date idea
Head to an office shop and print the photos out – remember to keep them in the right sequence
Number them all on the back in case they get mixed up. Also find some stand out ones and write something nice on the back like We have to try this cheesecake! on a pic of a cafe
Let her know she’ll need to block out the afternoon for a date night
Keep the details close to your chest and just let her know she’ll need good walking shoes and it’s going to be in the city
This parts fun – go all out and hide the photos around the house!
Put a few in obvious places and when she starts to pick them up tell her There’s 30 somewhere in the house to hunt for!
Even after she’s seen the numbers, and put them in order, she’s likely to still be wondering what this date idea is all about – hold off telling her until the day as build up is awesome!
The 1st photo is where you want to start. From here she’s the tour guide connecting the dots together
It’s harder than it looks so either give the occasional hint or laugh malevolently if that’s how you guys roll!
The goal of this date idea isn’t to get to the destination as fast as humanly possible (although this is definitely a highlight!). Rather take your time to enjoy the journey:
There’s even a printable map template for easy prep!
You’ll also have the chance to drop some factoids from the walking guide you downloaded
These can be pretty smooth, and make you look totally in the know, but overdoing it isn’t great dating form so see if she gets into them
Here’s a few finishing touches to polish this one off:
You’re unlikely to need these, as the hunt keep things flowing, however here’s a few just in case:
