“Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward in the same direction.”
This quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is from his book Terre des Hommes (translated into English as Wind, Sand and Stars). I love the original French too: “Aimer, ce n’est pas se regarder l’un l’autre, c’est regarder ensemble dans la même direction.”
Romance is so often portrayed as gazing, hypnotised, into each others’ eyes. But for me, it’s all about sharing an experience, an outlook, a dream, a life together. I love travelling with Pete because we can share the joys of what we see and do and discover.
Do you travel with your Significant Other? Does this statement ring true for you?
I loved the silhouettes of this couple who were visiting the Macau Tower at the same time as us, during our day trip to Macau. I was drawn to the view laid out before them, they and it both framed by the internal architecture of the tower, and their quiet shared appreciation of it.
