There’s a time for branching out on your own. Anyone who’s done some solo travel before can attest to the benefits of kissing your comfort zone goodbye and pushing yourself to try new things. But often, it’s nice to share new experiences with someone you love. It doesn’t have to be a partner – we’re talking about sharing special moments with your best friend, your mum, dad, sister, step-brother, cousin even pet!

If you’re single this Valentine’s Day, use the day as a chance to catch up with the people you love spending time with. Go out for dinner, go away for the weekend – do whatever makes you happy! If you’re in a relationship, treat yourselves to an experience you’ve always wanted to try. Here are some of our top suggestions for experiences that are better when shared…
