How to say I love you
Whether you are dropping the L bomb for the first time or just want another way to remind your partner just how much you are into them, we can help you say it a few different ways this Valentines’ Day.
No matter where you are February 14 don’t forget to say those three little words, “I love you” to your significant other to let them know they are still the object of your affection. We thought we’d share our top five places that we’d like to run off to this Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately we won’t be in any of these beautiful places, but we can express our love how the locals do and make an impression saying a totally different language.
In no particular order we have:
- Italy – ti amo
We are thinking back to when we sailed into Venice, the emotion of the moment sailing down the Grand Canal whilst Pavarotti was playing.
- France – Je t’aime
Could there be any place more romantic than the City of Love and no better moment than when the lights of Eiffel Tower begin to twinkle?
- Belgium – Ik jhou van je
Postcard picture perfect places in Bruges make for a romantic place made perfect with a horse carriage ride to the Diamond Factory or Chocolate Museum.
- Slovenia – Ljubim te
How could it not be romantic in a country with love in its name? Take a stroll around the picturesque Ljubljana Castle
- Netherlands – ik jou van je
Amsterdam is such a striking city and strolling along the spectacular canals Steve called me over to tell me something, he pointed and said this is what I wanted to tell you.
But you can express your love in many different forms and don’t just need words to say I love you. The way we react and respond to things can say I love you far louder than words and when travelling it’s a great time to express your feelings to your partner more deeply than words.
On a plane or train trip let your guard down and be silly. Take some selfies pulling silly faces, have fun laughing for no reason.
Skip the eye roll when something doesn’t go to plan.
Offer a bite of your sandwich, save enough milk for their coffee or make sure you don’t use the last of the hot water in the shower.
Show patience, when your partner is trying to figure out the GPS or count the foreign currency for coffee don’t stand their tapping your foot. Just take a few deep breathes and relax and enjoy the scenery.
And finally, when you see any of these silent I love you’s from your partner, acknowledge their act of love with a smile, a please or a thank you. Happy couples are the ones who notice and respond when their partners acknowledge each other.
It means so much when you hug back, kiss back, smile back or respond to his text with xoxo or <3
For us, travelling with each other is a very rewarding experience and we wouldn’t swap our travel style as it is in itself a gift and reward of sharing unique experiences and spending time together.
So wherever you are this Valentine’s Day, have a lovely day and make sure you take time out to tell your loved one how you feel.
Now your turn, tell us about your Valentine’s plans. Have you had a unique way you’ve impressed the one you love?
