Getaway for valentine's day

Take a romantic trip to Paris or London, or someplace tropical. If you don’t have so much money, you can book an overnight at your favorite bed and breakfast. It doesn’t have to be an expensive trip; it’s just the idea of getting away from it all to celebrate your love, just the two of you. A lot of places have special package rates for Valentines Day. Do some research online and you’ll be able to find something to fit any budget.
