I really appreciate your question, Sana. This is such a romantic way to start off this section!
This is a tough one, but I’ll treat this question as a scenario with a one-time usage. I would definitely choose to travel to my dream place. (And not just because this is a blog about my love of traveling!) I figure that you can meet the love of your life anywhere, at anytime.
There really is no substitute for visiting a place in person, especially if it’s somewhere you’ve been dreaming to go. Traveling is not just a distraction from everyday life (although that’s often the primary intention). It’s also a chance to educate yourself, broaden your worldview, and interact with cultures very different from your own. Like the place itself, there’s no replacement for these in-person experiences.
Who knows, you could even meet “the one” along the journey. Anything’s possible!
