Tired of blind dates that bore you out of your mind? Don’t worry, you aren’t the only one. The travel guys at Expedia and the love doctors of DoingSomething teamed up to create the ultimate speed dating experience.

The theory behind the project is all about the way relationships seem to build more naturally around a shared experience. 60 singles from across Europe and the UK were brought together on a special trip to Venice, Italy. The couples were relieved of the awkward dating pressure as they took on exhilaratingly fresh adventures around the romantic city.
