Top 10 Most Romantic Places in the World – THE OBEROI UDAIVILAS, UDAIPUR
You may be wondering why today’s post is about the Top 10 Most Romantic Places in the World. As you know, 2016 is a Leap Year which means that there are 366 days this year. Once every four years an extra day is added to the month of February, and here’s why: A year is defined as the time it takes for the Earth to orbit around the sun once. It takes the Earth about 365 1/4 days to make one entire orbit around the sun (a day is one rotation around the Earth’s axis). By adding one extra day about every four years, the Earth is in the same point of its orbit at the same time of the calendar year each year. It’s just a way to balance everything out.
As I was researching for today’s post, I came across a leap year legend that I’d never heard about before. There’s an old Irish tradition that began in 5th century Ireland when St. Brigid of Kildare bitterly complained to St. Patrick that women had to wait far too long for men to propose. The legend says that St. Patrick decreed the women could propose on this one day in February during the Leap Year. It got me thinking about how and where I would propose to Kerry if we weren’t already married. Since we both love to travel, I’d definitely plan on taking him somewhere unforgettable and utterly romantic to pop the question. Here is a roundup of some of the most romantic places in the world.
