Level 1: Exploring the wild park adventure

First stop: Reach for the sky

Have a kite fest! Create your own personalized kite and let it fly as high as it can. Exercise your imagination. Watch the clouds and spell out the formations you can see.

Second stop: Extreme outdoors

Al fresco is a good spot for a wild ride. Go biking, skating, play basketball, volleyball, badminton or any outdoor games. These activities will surely get you closer to each other.

Third stop: Boosting on the picnic grove

Pick a cozy spot! It may be under a tree or near the lake. Spread out your blanket and grab that picnic basket. Load up your tummies with your packed delicacies.

Fourth stop: Outdoor musical

Take hold of your guitar and sing-a-long your favorite songs. Nature sound tripping is definitely fun. This is also your chance to sing your songs all by yourself and dedicate it to your date.

Fifth stop: Snapshot time, baby!

Walk around and go sight-seeing. Don’t fail to remember to bring a videocam or a digicam. Be sure to capture every moment and every place you’ve been to. You will certainly treasure these memories and will surely want to make a documentary of your date adventure.

Level 2: There’s no place like home-sweet-home

Sixth stop: Hundred-dash-movie-marathon

Turn off the lights and go get those chocolates and chips from the cupboard. Fall more deeply in love as you watch your favorite romantic movies.
