My love story has always revolved around travel. This year for Valentine’s Day, I decided to write a love letter, to the one who has taught me that travel is more than just seeing beautiful places, it is about the adventures and experiences along the way.
For you…my partner in love & travel,
Thank you for showing me what true adventure is. Over the years I’ve learned that adventure is being open to new things and going through with them, even though it scares the heck out of you.
Adventure is going into the ocean at night (even if the water is only up to your ankles…) although there is the potential for scary creatures in the dark.
Adventure is taking your first flight alone, to be able to see the one you love who is 4000 km away.
Adventure is driving down winding roads with cliffs that drop hundreds of feet, to find some of the most amazing views you’ve ever seen.
Adventure is making a new city your second home.
Adventure is driving through Yellowstone at dusk, and being surrounded on all sides by a herd of buffalo passing through.
Adventure is sleeping in a tent in rattlesnake territory, just to wake up next to the ocean.
Adventure is moving across the country to be with someone, after spending three years living in different cities.
Adventure is driving long distances on weekends to discover new places together.
Adventure is driving through washed out roads, in order to share your favorite places with friends and family.
Adventure is spending your honeymoon traveling through Europe with nothing more than a backpack.
Adventure is planning to learn to surf in Australia, planning to see New Zealand in a camper van, and planning to camp your way through Maui.
All of these adventures have led us to beautiful places, and have created the most amazing memories.
You believe in me more than anyone else, and gently nudge me to become even braver.
You are my greatest adventure.
Happy Valentines Day!
