When it comes to my romantic berg bucket list, I’ll always choose misty mountain getaways over sandy toes on an island. I love the mystery of these romantic berg hide-aways, the inexplicable inner peace that comes with it and the deep, meaningful rest it forces us to initially endure and finally enjoy.
