This list began as a work of love. It is a list of romantic quotes and sayings for lovers, for travel couples, to be used for Instagram captions (or to be written in love notes) 🙂
I have been gathering the most beautiful, soul-wrenching travel quotes for couples I could find and adding them to this list (ongoing as we speak). You probably won’t find your typical “travel quotes for couples” here because I have tried to find words that are a little different and that really moved me. Especially the Pablo Neruda pieces! Be still, my heart.
Some are short and perfect for Instagram captions (for beautiful and fun pictures of couples), and others are on the longer side and can perhaps be enjoyed for what they are. I envision all of these quotes and sayings paired with lovely travel photos.
I will continue to add to this list and I very much hope they bring you joy! If you notice that any quotes are misattributed, please let us know right away.
