Happy Valensomething’s Day everyone!

That’s not a typo.

If there’s anything you’d rather do this Valentine’s Day than think about chocolates and romance, then Valensomething’s Day is for you. We’re celebrating some completely random people and places that start with Val, because why not. It’s about as silly as love, actually.

So, let’s scroll through some great Vals that have absolutely nothing to do with Valentine’s Day.

Val Kilmer

Whether he’s Iceman to you or the best 90s Batman, Val Kilmer is a brilliant reason to celebrate Valensomething’s Day. Val’s played Elvis, Jim Morrison, Mark Twain, and Alexander the Great’s dear old dad. He’s robbed banks with Robert De Niro and helped save the kingdom of Tir Asleen – we see you, Willow fans.

Oh, and he’ll be reprising his role as your favourite beach-volleyball-playing pilot this summer in Top Gun: Maverick. Just another reason to salute this Valensomebody.

Valencia, Spain

Valencia has all the best things in life: Oranges! Beaches! Paella! And with an average annual temperature of 23.0 °C, we’re ready to celebrate Valensomething’s Day there every day.

Valencia is nestled along the Mediterranean coast about 350 km south of Barcelona. And you can get nonstop flights from airports across the UK. Just saying.

Even better news? With Go Roam – available in over 70 destinations worldwide – you can use your allowance abroad at no extra cost. So, download those Google maps, keep your WhatsApp active, and enjoy Valencia without worrying if your phone will work there.

Valkyries

How does a little Norse mythology sound this Valensomething’s Day?

Meet the Valkyries – the squad of warrior women sent by Odin to choose which soldiers returned as heroes to Valhalla. If this sounds a lot like a Marvel movie, you’d be right. But there’s so much more to the OG Valkyrie legends than the Thor flicks. Evidence shows that these tales may be inspired by real Nordic female fighters known for their super strength. Don’t ya just love history?

Valentino

The famed Italian fashion designer was born Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani. But as everyone knows, you’re not really important until you’re on a one-name basis with the world.

Valentino’s career took off in the 1960s when he was commissioned by American style icon Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis. He’s dressed Audrey Hepburn, Naomi Campbell, Julia Roberts, Adele, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lady Gaga… We could go on, but this post would be entirely too long.

Valentino has since retired, but let’s be honest: fashion never sleeps.
