We are expecting a lot of party this week, it is time to celebrate Saint Valentine’s Day with your beloved one, to participate in #TwentytuLove contest on Instagram and to enjoy the Carnival with friends. Don’t worry: there is time for everything! Today we give you a few ideas to make a perfect plan and not miss anything.

Valentine’s Day magic

Are you in love? Want to surprise your lover? One option is to mix both festivities and appear dressed as Cupid. But if you really want to leave your lover speechless, book a sailing tour on a sight-seeing boat in Barcelona. And if you don’t have the budget for that, you can just organize a picnic at the beach or at Horta’s Labyrinth Park and you will succeed. Or you can always book a table at his/her favorite restaurant, or go on a route around the romantic streets in Barcelona. Don’t forget to take a photo of your romantic evening and share it in our competition in Instagram.
