What's your travel love language?
Discovering Your Travel Love Language: Enhancing Romantic Getaways
We all know our personalities determine what type of things we like, especially when we’re on a romantic holiday with our loved ones and want to connect with each other. Love languages are a way of understanding how we give and receive love in different ways, which helps us figure out what we can do to make our partner feel loved in the ways they feel loved.
So, let us help you find out your travel love language and the best activities to do on your next romantic holiday together.
It’s more meaningful to me when…
My partner showers me with kind words, encouragement, or praise.
I get to spend time in a shared activity or hobby with my partner.
My partner goes out of their way to do something nice for me.
I feel adored and validated through physical affection - hugs, hand holding and cuddling.
I receive an unexpected and meaningful gift from my partner.
Words of affirmation: Try something new with the encouragement of your loved one
You love hearing from the people you love frequently and hate when people don’t say what they’re thinking. If the words “I’m proud of you” makes you glow from the inside out, then a holiday is the perfect setting to try something new with plenty of reassurances from your loved one. It’s time to push your comfort zone with something unique such as horse-riding or trapeze. Sometimes a little encouragement from your loved one can be all that you need to conquer those fears!
Quality time: Romantic dinners with a side of undivided attention
Are you always down to spend time with your partner? And do you crave their undivided attention? Far from the daily route, you can focus on the main reason you’re on holidays– to spend quality time with each other (because we all know how busy life can get). An intimate romantic dinner on the beach in the Seychelles is the perfect chance for you to bask in each other's presence, just the two of you. Uninterrupted time with my partner? Sign me up!

Acts of service: Learn to whip up a culinary masterpiece that you can make at home
You believe that actions speak louder than words and love when your partner goes out of their way to make your life easier. If you appreciate acts of service, then learn how to treat your loved one to a feast. Food is the way to the heart, so what better way to show your appreciation for each other than to cook for each other.

You’ll be the happiest giving and receiving this physical sign of love.

Receiving gifts: Make it special for a special occasion
Do you love being surprised by a gift? Or just something small that you had mentioned offhandedly? It doesn’t take a one-off event for you to love receiving a gift. If it’s meaningful, it’s a win in your books. So, what could be more thoughtful than the gift of travel to a destination that has been gaining dust on your travel bucket list?
