Weekend Getaway- How to Make the Most of It
Everyone knows how hard it is to take long stretches of time off of work, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a long weekend to just give yourself a break. Sometimes I actually prefer taking a bunch of long weekends rather than taking long stretches off. I thought it might be helpful if I give you some tips on how to make the most of a weekend getaway.
Choosing the Location
If I only have a stretch of 3 days to use I try to choose a place that is around 4 hours or less away. This helps ensure that you are not wasting all your time traveling. Depending on the type of transportation you choose will help you determine the destination. Just be aware of travel times when looking at different options.
Deciding what to Do
While you are away you are going to want to decide what you are going to do. Whether you just want to get away and relax, or explore the area you are going. I recommend trying to plan as much as you can before you leave so it is less stressful upon your arrival, and no extra time is wasted trying to figure things out. Leave a little bit of free time though just in case you come across something you might have missed. Ask some of the locals they always know the best places to go.
If you only have a few days off the best thing you can do is just enjoy yourself. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Just enjoy your time away to unwind and rejuvenate yourself.
