Life, Travel

Travel is My Love Language

Travel is my love language. This probably doesn’t come as surprise to anyone, I mean I run a travel blog. But it really is a true statement. My fondest memories growing up are from traveling around the country, and for as long as I can remeber travel has been a priority in my life. When you travel you are able to experience new cultures, meet new people, and see new sites. You learn something new everytime, and it pushes you outside your comfort zone and helps you grow as a person.

My first introduction to travel came in the form of the classic roadtrip. Family vacation for me growing up always included a road trip. Sometimes these roadtrips were short, like the ones to the beach, and sometimes they were long, like the 14 hour drives to see my dad’s family in New England, but regardless of the length these roadtrips hold some of my favorite memories as a kid. My parents also considered roadtrips the perfect educational opportunity. We always sought out the most interesting historical landmark along the route and would spend a few hours learning about the place and its impact on America. I think these roadtrip field trips are one of the many reasons I love American history so much.

Luckily, the “field trip” mentality my parents instilled in their children has lasted into my brother’s and my own trip planning. Do you know many college students who would spend their spring break in museums? Nope, me either. But that’s exactly what my brother and I did my senior year.

Fast forward to post-graduate life, and I’m still eager to visit new places and learn something new with each trip/adventure. Luckily, I have found someone as eager to explore as me. (Sidenote: This is a must-have trait for me in my partner.) Since The Tall Man and I started dating a little over a year ago, we have traveled to 12 different states.When we travel, it’s just as much about being with each other and enjoying each other’s company as it is experiencing something new.

I think traveling is so much more fun when you can do it with the ones you love, and it’s also way more memorable!
