I always scoffed at the idea of a mushy Valentine's Day, being adamantly against buying that overpriced red rose and gifts! But over the years, I have realised that this is the time of the year to celebrate love, and you don't have to buy presents for each other, just plan a getaway together!
Who says Valentine's Day is only for those who have a partner or a spouse? Defy the norm and spend the 'love is in the air' time with your best friend or your mom! Whoever your BAE is, all you need to do is travel, explore and make memories for life with them! This year, Valentine's Day is on a Tuesday - even better reason to combine it with the weekend!
Instead of going on a dinner date, why not book a weekend in a gorgeous destination that offers not just peace but the luxuries you want to experience with your loved ones? It doesn’t matter what you believe in, these romantic getaways will make you want to hit that ‘Book’ button.
