No matter how many weekends you stay in your apartment and spend the whole day in bed, it still won’t compare to having an actual vacation out of town and being literally away from home for a couple of days. True you may be getting hours upon hours of sleep, and plenty of quality time with your books, your tv shows, or your bed, but to see the same things day after day isn’t quite as relaxing as you think.
If you find yourself being a little bit crankier during Mondays, and having a little less patience for your interns whenever they have questions, maybe it’s high time that you pick up that phone and call on your gang to plan out a short but sweet vacation out of town.
Check out those cool travel blogs your friends online have been raving about, find out what tips they have to say about driving out on a long road trip to Vegas, or hitting the beaches in Miami. You could also go on an eclectic and highly spiritual trip to Key West if you wish. Dine in picnics at local parks, revel in the beauty of nature as you watch the sunset, or spend the entire afternoon biking around town.
Since graduating high school or college, it’s natural that you and your friends may have drifted a little since work and real life started. This is the perfect time to re-connect and rekindle that friendship over a bottle of drinks at a restaurant with exotic cuisine or maybe over a bonfire at the beach with marshmallows on sticks just like old times.
So go on ahead, book that vacation leave with your boss, get on that computer, check on best rental car rates for your trip, book the hotel, and save the dates. It’s time to let loose, relax, have fun, and reconnect!
