The trip of a lifetime for a FC Barcelona fan

The trip of a lifetime for a FC Barcelona fan

It’s been a long time since my last visit to Barcelona, 15 years to be exact. I fondly remember the interesting walking tours, the delicious food, sexy beaches and stunning architecture. The many Gaudi buildings around the city are so incredible that photos simply can’t do them justice. You truly need to see them in real life to appreciate their awesomeness.

You may not recognize his name, but there’s a good chance you’ve seen a picture of Antoni Gaudi’s work. Gaudi was a visionary architect and the mastermind behind some of the most creative buildings in the world. He considered every detail when creating his architecture, including ceramics, stained glass, wrought ironwork and carpentry. His work was not only ground breaking, it completely changed the way architects integrate art into their projects.

Barcelona is one of those iconic cities that every person must visit at least once in their lifetime. And, until March 19, Aeroplan is giving you the chance to bid on the trip of a lifetime.

Last summer Aeroplan announced the addition of dExclusives to its Distinction program. dExclusives is an online auction site that serves up some juicy escapes and one-of-a-kind rewards only available to members that have gained Distinction status.

Happening right now on the dExclusives auction is a soccer fan’s dream. Distinction members can bid on a 5-day getaway to Barcelona that features a private VIP jet experience with all your favourite players from FC Barcelona. You read that correctly. Check out the details here.

The winner will be joining Messi, Suárez, Alves, Bravo, Rakitic and the rest of the FC Barcelona team aboard their charter plane from Barcelona to Vigo.

The auction winner and their guest will have the opportunity to take photos with the players and ask for autographs. Seriously awesome!

The reward winner and a guest will fly Business Class from any Canadian airport (all airline fees, taxes, fuel surcharges, airport/hotel transfers are included) along with 4 night’s accommodation at the luxurious Meliá Barcelona Sarrià with breakfast included. The winner will have private guided tours of Barcelona and Vigo with time to explore both cities, and tickets to the game to watch FC Barcelona take on RC Celta de Vigo at the Balaídos Stadium on Sunday, April 5, 2015.

Can you imagine? What an awesome experience!

The winner will surely remember this trip forever. It will be interesting to watch how high the bidding gets, but if you have some extra Miles and are looking for an unforgettable trip this April, why not put in a bid? There’s no risk. The only person whose Miles get redeemed is the final reward winner.

The only requirement to bid is you must be a Distinction member. If you’re not currently a member, find out how to become one here.
