Don't Forget Your Valentine!

Time for another 'Don't Forget…' competition on Twitter. Hopefully you haven't forgot that it's St Valentine's Day soon? Well, just in case you're stuck for that perfect present to give your loved one - the kind of gift that expresses your true romantic nature - how about a balloon ride on us?
To me, there are few things better than soaring over the beautiful countryside in a hot air balloon - and how wonderful to share that with your partner. I've had a few notable balloon flight partners in the past… I spent a very memorable (but not so romantic) 46 hours in a balloon flying over the Pacific Ocean with Per Lindstrand...
But one of my other favourites has to be Janet Jackson back in 1991. Treating her to a ride was the ultimate way of demonstrating what a great partnership we'd have if she signed a deal with Virgin Records - and it worked!
So, if you win this Virgin Balloon Flights competition, maybe you can use the opportunity to seal your own deal with that perfect partner? We'll even throw in a hamper of some bubbly and chocolates…
All you have to do is follow me on Twitter and tweet me a picture of yourself with your loved one. Include the hashtag #DontForgetYourValentine and, on Valentine's Day, I'll pick one winner who'll receive the full Virgin Balloon Flights luxury gift package for two to use between March and October.
