Travel: The New Love Language
Updated: Sep 2
We've all heard of the 5 love languages - words of affirmation, quality time, receiving gifts, acts of service, and physical touch. It is said that understanding your significant other’s love language is a crucial part of improving communication and strengthening your bond.
But what if there is one more love language we’re currently missing?
Introducing travel! Skeptics may say it seems a bit too specific to be classified as an entirely new category of ‘love language’, but think again. Amidst a global pandemic, where countries all over the world are closing off their borders, more and more people are craving for the joy and thrill of going on new and exciting adventures with their significant others.
So is travel your true love language? Read on to find out!
Do you sometimes like to put down whatever’s on your hands, and just stop for a moment to take in the beautiful environment surrounding you? While on holiday, do you find yourself frequently captivated by the vastness of the mountains or the tranquillity of the ocean? If yes, this might be a sign to plan a holiday with your partner! Getting away from the busy work routine once in a while could be just the thing you and your significant other needs.
Local street foods
Planning for a date night with your significant other, but don’t know where to eat? Maybe you’re tired of going to the same old fine dining restaurant and you’re looking for something different, something more ‘out there’. The perfect solution? Street food. Just like that mouth-watering scene from Crazy Rich Asians, enjoying local street foods with your partner can make for a memorable (and budget-friendly!) night out.
Different cultures and events
Travelling is all about stepping out of your repetitive daily routine and gaining a different experience. If you want to strengthen your relationship with your partner, then what better way to do it than diving into new experiences together? Just like how exposing yourself to different cultures can help you develop as a person, traveling with your significant other can let you grow and strengthen your relationship together.
Do you ever find it difficult to stop yourself from grabbing out your camera to capture the aesthetics of different cafes and shops that you visit? The lockdown has certainly limited our travel destinations, but if travel is indeed your love language, then you might be itching to get out of the house for some fresh content to your Instagram feed. While crossing borders is not so realistic at the moment, enjoying brunch with your partner at a local cafe can let you explore travel destinations in your hometown while also supporting small businesses.
