Do not celebrate Valentine’s Day, go on a road trip instead

What do you do on Valentine’s day when you are a student living abroad and your new partner does not celebrate Valentine’s day? And what do you do when you are a romantic bee waiting for any occasion to showcase your crafty skills and suddenly are banned from showing any sort of affection?

As it is not rear in today’s world, fewer people let traditionalism define them and even fewer let societal pressure lead their actions. However, Valentine’s day has been widely commercialized and celebrated by people of different religions throughout the world. And is still a big deal for some couples.

Yesterday was February 14th, and this article tries to successfully answer the questions above.

First of all, this is what you do not do. No chocolate. No flowers. No teddy bears. No romantic dinner. No cards.

So, the big question. What can you do?

Well, you either ignore the day completely or (spoiler alert of a great idea not suitable for broke wallets) you go on a road trip. Oh yeah, you knew it because it is in the headline. Still awesome, isn’t it?
Of course, this year it was a weekday but that doesn’t mean the idea is not valid. Some would request the day off work, and some other can still celebrate on the following weekend (nothing better than a two day trip around the country with no time pressure).

Here, in Ireland the countryside is beautiful, so basically, everything is worth visiting. Also, if you don’t own a car, there are many car rentals available with a wide range of cars and prices.

For example, Budget offers cars from 32 Euros a day, while at Hertz a luxury automatic car starts from 85 Euros a day.

Here are some of the awesome views you will get on your way around Ireland.
