Did you just get off Instagram vowing to go on vacations the very next month after seeing your friends partying in Bali or Thailand? Maybe, the sudden surge in travel advertisements on your Twitter feed has resurrected your inner explorer? Or are you amongst us daydreamers, waiting to escape the monotony of life for an exciting adventure? It doesn’t matter if you work 20 hours a day or no hours at all – change is what every human craves. Be it a change in routine or a wee bit in the scenery.
Taking breaks from the mundane life is equally essential to maintain a work-life balance. How many times have you decided to quit your job after waking up to the sound of your morning alarms? Yeah, we’ve all been there. You are presumed to work, study, eat, sleep and repeat the same cycle 365 days a year (minus the weekends if you are lucky to have them off). But the human mind and body are not equipped like a robot!
Work efficacy may increase far into the future with cyborgs as your assistants, but that is not today! Public holidays and days off of work can manage to bring a slight reprieve from stress. But what you need is a vacation away from your home.
Travelling can be a mood lifter, an energizer, or altogether a life-altering experience. So, book yourself a ride to the mountains or the hills. These getaways not only allow quality family time and bonding opportunities- but gives you a fresh perspective after experiencing various cultures and such.
However, before you get going, check out these spectacular tips to make your travel memorable.
1. Book fun and comfortable lodgings
Suppose you’ve already decided about your destination. In that case, the next most important step is selecting comfortable lodgings, which sets the tone of your journey. Some travelers like to spend more time in the wild nature than being couped up in a hotel room. However, hotels are not just about giving you a bed to sleep in anymore. They have evolved into entertainment resorts, providing travelers an adventure on their own.
They are luxurious and adventurous. If you are planning to experience the breathtaking beauty of the Smoky Mountains, then book yourself a chalet at the Pigeon Forge cabins to experience the rustic nature in style and luxury.
Fresh towels and sheets on the bed, a clean bathroom, and the wonderful ambiance of a hotel can significantly uplift your mood and satisfaction.
2. Pick out adventurous locations
Deciding on a destination for your vacation has to be the most exciting part of planning. You can opt for local sites or international hot spots. Proper research can help you make the perfect choice for your next trip of a lifetime.
Search for fun and adventurous destinations. You could visit Disneyland for your inner child or have fun at the various rides and attractions in Universal Studios. Or maybe you want to intimately explore historical cities and iconic pyramids on a luxury tour of Egypt and Jordan. The unique and extraordinary possibilities are endless.
Additionally, confirm your availability beforehand and plan to travel when you do not have many obligations.
3. Set aside your budget
Vacations are expensive hobbies so it’s always better to know how much you can spend on such excursions to plan accordingly. A good tip is to allocate a gross amount for your outings. Then further split them into individual segments of your trip, including ticket fares, food, lodgings, shopping, etc. This way, you not only avoid overspending but it makes you relaxed throughout your journey to have all money matters sorted out previously.
4. Time to take your bucket list out!
Are you one of those people with a long bucket list? It is time to check some items off that list. We live in a fascinating environment. Anything outside the norm to tickle our fancy goes directly on our bucket list. Maybe it is finally time for you to try sky diving, bungy jumping from great heights in the middle of the forest, spend a day like a wizard with a wand at the Harry Potter studios, enjoy the peace in the Alaskan wilderness or swim in the middle of the bluest ocean.
Keep your checklist ready or make a new one with all the places you’d want to visit. After all, you wouldn’t want to miss out on the sites that had been plaguing your dreams forever.
5. Ditch your gadgets
Cellphones and laptops have become a human extension. It is only natural to have them with you at all times. However, digital detoxification on vacation is much needed to rejuvenate the mind, body, and soul. Hold on; we are not asking for too much. Turn off all notifications- you don’t want to get your day ruined if you find an urgent work email. It is better to unplug from the usual humdrum of city life and fully immerse yourself in nature and appreciate its beauty.
6. Snap and save it away
Beautiful experiences always stay with as fond memories. Pictures freeze time frames and moments to reminisce whenever we want to as memories start fading away. It does not only mean capturing an Instagram-worthy photo of yourself for immediate posting. But, pictures and videos of people and the surroundings as a keepsake for later times.
7. Pack light!
Most importantly, don’t over-pack! Google for weather conditions, or ask your experienced travel buddies for tips. Clothes must be smart and suitable for the weather. Pick out a light suitcase or a traveling bag. Pack only the essential clothing and toiletries. Heavy suitcases will slow you down and are difficult to maneuver. Pro-tip, always pack your stuff in advance to avoid forgetting essentials in your panic.
Embrace change and spontaneity
You don’t get to travel for leisure frequently. Make the most of your time during the vacation. Don’t forget to book a reliable traveling agency to avoid burdening yourself with the planning. They are also your travel guides for the tour and save you from losing focus on enjoyment. Pick out your traveling mates. Many people enjoy solo travels, while others can’t enjoy a day without friends and family. Cherish every opportunity on vacation and pamper yourself with much-needed self-love.
