Celebrate your love language by taking on navigation duties or mapping out the next day's itinerary. Or tackle vacation chores like doing laundry, packing, or shopping for groceries. Then, relax in a gondola together for a romantic getaway you’ll treasure for a lifetime!
Words of Affirmation
You’re all about expressing your love with words. You love to hear praise and appreciation.
How you should travel: Travel to the City of Love: Paris! Float down the Seine River on a tour boat so you can chat about the incredible sites. Take a French class to learn romantic phrases. You can practice your new language skills to tell each other how you feel! (It's ok to be corny! Go all out this Valentine's Day.) Then head to an unforgettable classical concert at the Eiffel Tower! It's bound to be your dream vacation.
If this is your love language, you feel loved when given special presents.
How you should travel: Treat your boo to cute souvenirs throughout the vacation! Or if you’re the one who loves to be gifted, go souvenir shopping together and explore the culture.

How you should travel: Embrace your physical side in Iceland! Challenge yourselves to hike along massive glaciers and glassy ice caves.
