Where will you be for your 2nd anniversary?

In every marriage more than a week old, there are grounds for divorce.  The trick is to find, and continue to find, grounds for marriage.
Robert Anderson, Solitaire & Double Solitaire

It is traditional to present your loved one with a gift of cotton on your second anniversary. England is the home of spun cotton with the first cotton reels operating from 1730 but if you would like to really congratulate each other for finding grounds for marriage – look further afield. The pursuit of a cotton rich destination will have you choosing between east and west.

Cotton plants like warmth and the largest producers in the East are Uzbekistan, the People’s Republic of China, Pakistan and India. While the first three destinations might offer slightly more excitement than one would want from a quixotic holiday India specializes in perfect romantic getaways. From luxury trains to a truly impressive list of palaces, spoiling yourself is simply a matter of making a decision. The Taj Mahal is said to be the most perfect architectural structure in the world – as a monument of love it also rates pretty high on the list of anniversary destinations. You need to spend at least one full day in Agra to appreciate its beauty – try to plan your trip to coincide with the full moon so you can witness the effect of its rays on the marble and jewels. The Indian Himalayas are a secret. While tourists flock to Tibet in droves much of the Indian side of the mountain was forbidden to foreign visitors until quite recently and it remains pristine. An unforgettable holiday will wind through remote villages with spectacular scenery, take in ancient monasteries and give you an insiders view of traditional Himalayan culture.

Cotton is still the leading cash crop in the United States – but this dry economic fact does not mean that there is no romance to be found chasing Cotton. There are no fewer than 17 states that you could officially visit if cotton is your excuse: California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, and Kansas

While each of these states has their own romantic attraction there is an old world charm about Georgia that will suit a nostalgic celebration. Cumberland Island is separated from the mainland by salt marsh, river and sound and only reachable by boat. This barrier island has a wild forest complete with wild horses, raccoons and live oaks. Wood storks, fiddler crabs, storks, loggerhead turtles and oyster catchers share a 17 mile beach. There is only one hotel, The Greyfield Inn which only has radio phone communication with the mainland…making this a truly exclusive anniversary treat.
