Making Valentine’s Day sweet while on the road
Kevin Bellas | posted February 08, 2012 |
Absence may make the heart grow fonder, but time away from your significant other on Valentine’s Day can flat out be a bummer.
For therapists and nurses traveling on assignment this February 14, physical separation doesn’t have to mean lack of romance. With thoughtful gestures and the wonders of technology, you can feel close and connected to your loved one.
Consider these romance-boosting ideas for your sweetie:
1. Schedule a Skype chat. All you need is a computer, tablet or mobile device with a high-speed Internet connection and the ability to download the program or app. It even works on some televisions with Internet. Read more about it here.
2. Make a digital Valentine’s card. Use photos from your assignment and send it via e-mail.
3. Send a singing telegram. Yes, they still exist and yes, they are still awesomely funny and embarrassing. Google listings in your hometown and send one to your significant other’s work. He or she will never forget it.
4. Create a “day in the life” video. Your loved one will enjoy seeing the sights and sounds of your travel adventure. Your smart phone probably has video capability and you can shoot snippets throughout a few days. In just a few minutes of video, your significant other can meet your work buddies, see your housing, visit your town and feel close to you. You’ll also enjoy looking back at this for years to come.
5. Send a gourmet gift basket. Champagne and chocolate, anyone? There are many websites that specialize in everything from exotic fruit to bubble bath and bubbly.
These are just a few ideas to fire your imagination—our travelers are clever and will undoubtedly come up with other creative ways to spread the love on Valentine’s Day.

An Occupational Therapist (OT) who is a traveler can experience the same high demands as those who are working in a permanent setting, but may not have a local emotional support structure to help them weather the storm.
