282-Valentines Day Hiking Ideas

Show notes

Valentine’s Day, while once considered just another American holiday, is now firmly entrenched in Australian culture. The day is usually associated with chocolate, flowers and dinner out, but is this just lazy romance? Why not change things up a bit by thinking outside the box and blending hiking with Valentine’s Day for a romantic date out bush!
