Romance is in the eye of the beholder. For travelers, passion for a place can be the greatest love affair. A palm-lined coast in the south of France. The magic of a medieval city at sunset in Belgium. Swimming in a cenote in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula.
It’s easy to grow accustomed to the emotional allure of travel—the giddy sense of possibility that comes when your plane lands, the serenity and gratitude you feel taking in new surroundings, and the soaring feeling of experiencing something you’ve long been anticipating.
