Funny Valentine’s: readers’ travel mishaps

We learn that oysters aren’t always effective aphrodisiacs, masked parades in Venice can lead to misplaced affections … and glaciers can be slippery

For our first night out together in over six months since having a baby we travelled to Galgorm resort and spa, near Ballymena. My husband pulled out all the stops and reserved a riverside hot tub. Hopping from the hot tub to refill my glass he lost his balance and tumbled backwards into the river Maine. I had a beautifully uninterrupted night’s sleep in a giant comfy bed, while he lay flat on the floor nursing a bruised coccyx.

TwitterFacebook

No one loves Twitter more than Jack Dorsey loves Twitter. The cofounder and CEO of the news app is spreading the love this Valentine’s Day — to his own company.

Dorsey revealed, in a tweet linking to a form to the Securities and Exchange Commission,  that he bought 425,998 shares of Twitter stock, over Monday and Tuesday. Dorsey now owns 15,468,426 shares in total.

Buenos Aires’ new-look love hotels: book ardour by the hour

Steamy liaisons in short stay hotels – or telos – are nothing new in Argentina’s capital. But now the tacky decor and garish lighting are being ditched for sexy style, gourmet food and free mini bars

A diplodocus-size steak, a live football match, a late-night tango lesson: it’s the classic Buenos Aires tourist tick list. But for a really authentic experience, no visit to the Argentine capital – if you are travelling as a couple – is complete without a cheeky visit to a “telo”.
