[dropcap]A[/dropcap]hh, Valentine’s Day. It’s actually one of my favorite holidays, believe it or not. While you’d think 24 years of being completely single would turn me completely off on romantic love and this “Hallmark holiday,” it has not. In fact, each year I actively fight against becoming bitter, buying a bunch of chocolate, and crying to Bridget Jones’s Diary.
Last year my friend and I spent a lovely day pampering ourselves in Hoi An and all through college I watched my favorite love movies and witnessed even the most clueless boyfriends step it up for this special day.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day and love in general, I thought I’d round up some lovely travel blogging couples who are redefining #couplegoals. After all, nothing quite tests a relationship like the stresses of travel or moving abroad.
These lucky people have not only found love, they’ve found someone who shares their passion for travel.
