Great lovers in history - incorporate images, clues and maps
from famous lovers all over the world and throughout time
(i.e. Antony & Cleopatra, etc.)
Retrace the steps of your relationship - Have them revisit
the site of your first/memorable dates, old houses you used
to live in, places you fell in love. Make it chronological
to build as your relationship grew. For those places that
may be out of reach (i.e. out of state), but that you would
still like to include, try postcards or photos to be picked
up in appropriate locations.
Their (more likely HER) favorite romantic movie. Have things
happen to her similar to how they happened to her counterpart
in the movie. Let her live out some memorable scenes. The
whole treasure hunt could be connected by these scenes that
she gets to live out.
Casanova - research some information on this legendary lover.
Coordinate everything with a French theme.
Begin with he/she finding a note in a bottle (in the water
or washed ashore) from a lost lover at see. The note is to
his/her lover they left behind - your participant must reunite
these two lovers. If you are clever enough, you could write
a whole story on this.
If he/she has a favorite novel, let them use it as part of
their clues. Incorporate the story of the book into the treasure
hunt so that they can live out their favorite literary character.
Build up a mystery by having them receive messages or a single
REPEATED message from 'a man in a black cape' or 'a woman
in a red dress.'
Do a 'poor man's' honeymoon. Wherever you went for your honeymoon,
you could recreate the scene and activities. Get some postcards
from the location - or make your own on the computer. You
can order travel guides free - or get them from a local travel
agent. Where did you eat? Is there somewhere you could go
that would remind them of that place? Etc.
Involving the interest of the person going on the treasure
hunt. For example, if they like horses or woodworking, fishing,
beaches, sunsets, dolphins, scrapbooking, etc. - incorporate
these into the hunt.
