It’s that time of the year again, folks. Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and it’s the perfect opportunity to rekindle the romance. That said, we are still in a pandemic, so V-Day will play out a bit differently this year.
It doesn’t mean that romance and creativity should suffer. You can still turn this Valentine’s Day into something special, even if you don’t plan on leaving the house. Here’s how.
The pandemic brought with it the rise of virtual events, art shows, trips and tours. It offered a temporary solution for the wanderers among us who were forced to stay at home when borders were closed.
Besides, you won’t have to spend a cent or leave the comfort of your couch this Valentine’s Day. Simply head over to Google’s Arts & Culture platform and explore a wide variety of cultural experiences from across the globe.
How many of us have opened our notes app on our phones to create sightseeing bucket lists before a holiday? It’s fun, helps build up excitement, and you get to plan out every detail of your trip before you actually hit the road.
It’s now easier than ever to find places and things to explore with Google Maps. The app and website is user-friendly too. Explore your chosen city with your partner and save some of your favourite spots on a Google Maps List.
If you find a new place you’d love to visit, simply add it to one of the default lists or create your own. You can also use the app to avoid crowded places. Learn how to plan your travels on Google Maps here.
A Valentine’s getaway would never be complete without a playlist of your favourite jams.
Have fun with your partner putting together a YouTube Music playlist for your trip. That way, you’ll get to create new memories with your favourite songs in the background, all the while having a blast.
Why not turn this Valentine’s Day into a dress-up evening, recreate a scene from your favourite date at home and take a trip down memory lane? The best thing is, you don’t have to go anywhere, which means you stay safe.
If you do decide to head out, make sure you adhere to COVID-19 protocols. That said, moving around all day can work up your appetite.
A quick Google “near me” search will unravel a list of restaurants near you that serve that type of cuisine. Order in for two and be transported straight to your destination.
