About Mr & Mrs Romance

Back in 2000 – on 15th September to be exact (it was a Friday) – two people met completely at random. Realising they shared many insights into the world around them, they decided to explore that world together and see just how accurate those insights really were.

The good news is we’re still together and discovering more every day. We are Mr and Mrs Romance – or Jim and Christina to our friends.

If you want to find travel tips, great recipes and restaurants, cocktails and bars, and everything else in between for you and your partner, you’re in the right place.
We’re all about finding the romance in the everyday.

Our key word is ‘together’ – that’s our secret to romance. Together we love to travel, to eat, to drink and most of all to laugh. Being serious is not one of our favourite pastimes, so please read our blog with the same smile on your face we have when we write it.

In particular we love sharing our experiences. By its very nature, sharing makes people put in what they have to offer. We think it’s really important that if you have something to share, this is the place to do it.

Some of the things you’ll find we love

We love travelling!

We certainly haven’t been everywhere but where we have been, we think is a pretty good start. Check out our travel section to see where we’ve been so far, what we’ve done while we were there and how we did it.

We love eating!

This isn’t supposed to be a food blog so don’t expect too many recipes but there will be plenty of pictures of delicious food we’ve eaten (and occasionally cooked), and some great tips for parties and quick dinners.

We also have our own cocktail ebook for you download with over 35 different cocktails and what you need to do to throw the perfect cocktail party!

Christina loves photography!

It’s mostly all of Christina’s work that makes my words look pretty. She’s loved taking photos her whole life. Find out some of her best tips and tricks here like how to shoot great photos at night!

We both love talking and in the He Said, She Said section, you can see how different our worlds are even though we’ll probably agree with each other in the end. Probably.

Have fun reading our site.
