"The main facts in human life are five: birth, food, sleep, love and death." - E.M. Forster Today I bring you an easy idea. How about surprising your lover with a sleep over in someones flat? It's romantic, unexpected, you can cook dinner before, prepare a nice bubbling bath with candles and relaxing music. I made a little search and I found an amazing collection of vintage flats at 9flats.com. The website uses a collaborative consumption model to enable people to share resources. People looking for short-term accommodation book other people’s private places online or through a telephone booking line, and property owners pay a fee for this service. 9flats is the only player in this field that does not charge the guest anything - all fees are paid by the Host. In this listing you will find vintage inspired flats not only in Berlin, but all over the world. Just in case you're feeling generous and want to give your valentine a little romantic weekend. The 14th of February this year falls on a Thursday, making it perfect for a romantic long-weekend getaway.
