54 Most Romantic Ways to Travel

Traveling around the world gives you an opportunity to see how other people travel from place to place. While many Americans hop into their car to go somewhere, motorbikes are a popular form of transport in Thailand. In fact, it's not unusual to find a family of 4 riding the same motorbike!


I love me some lists, and I always enjoy traveling via a new mode of transport. Below is a list of some of my favorite personal experiences plus several more to add to my bucket list. Perhaps these will help you to reinforce that it's not always the destination, but often the journey!
