Just today I had a friend ask me how I manage to travel despite of having a job! That's what kinda inspired me to write this post.
Tip 1 for Great Weekend Getaways: Plan Ahead
When you plan in advance, you have the excitement building and you make sure you execute the plan no matter what. Also, planning in advance helps you get good discounts on travel fares and accommodation tarrifs.
Tip 2 for Great Weekend Getaways: Extend your weekend
What I usually do is, try to club a long weekend with an extra holiday. If you plan it well in advance, I am sure your workplace will allow it. Getting a leave on Friday or Monday, if you have a Saturday (and Sunday) off, should work!
Tip 3 for Great Weekend Getaways: Keep an eye on long weekends
There are so many public holidays, festivals, etc. that fall over a weekend – i.e. either Friday, Saturday or Monday (let’s consider Monday as well). The moment you get an updated calendar (which your work place or college follows) you have a list of holidays. So start planning right then!
Tip 4 for Great Weekend Getaways: Pack and prepare for the trip the day before
You do not want to stress just before you leave for the trip. Since you’re planning ahead of time, you have ample time to decide what your travel essentials are and what you would need for a weekend getaway.
Tip 5 for Great Weekend Getaways: Allow for some pampering
You do not want to get back to work in stress. Indulge. Get pampered. Dine out. Do your favourite things. After all, weekend getaways are meant to rejuvenate you before you get back to work! So make the most of it. Who doesn't love a spa session right?
Some weekend getaway options:
Have fun guys!
