Normally, doing things alone has a pretty significant drawback: It costs more. Living, eating, travelling-just about anything solo costs more. And typically, that is something single people feel more on Valentine’s Day. But this Valentine’s Day, a global tour company is rewarding those who dare to do it alone.

Explore Worldwide is offering solo travellers free single-room upgrades and half-price trip supplements on hundreds of trips throughout the year. Traditionally, getting a room to yourself would typically cost extra on these trips, so with this deal you won’t have to pay more just for being solo. With discounts on supplements (extra experiences, meal upgrades, you know the fun stuff), you’ll be saving money by not travelling with another person.

By booking between February 14 and 28, you can join the small group tours where you’ll benefit from travelling with others and get to enjoy some quality time with yourself.

You can check out all of the discounted tour options on the Explore Worldwide website. For avid solo travellers, Explore Worldwide suggests its Sri Lanka tour, and has hundreds of additional tours to choose from as well.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
