Summertime is the time for sun, fun, and hopefully vacations!
All of us have our various rituals when planning to get away. Each vacation brings with it potential opportunities and challenges. Here are some tips and tricks to help your vacation a memorable one:
Tip #1 – Do your homework. Most, if not all destinations have websites. A little research can save you time, money, and boredom. The less time you spend traveling, the more time you can spend relaxing and/or having fun. Nothing can put a damper on a vacation faster than “Are we there yet?”
Tip #2 – The Bear Necessities – Think through your plans and get everyone on board. If your destination has laundry facilities, amenities, and other conveniences, you may be able to pack half the clothes, food, etc. Lighter packing can save backs and gas mileage.
Tip #3 – Get Everyone Involved– Get everyone involved in planning a part of your vacation. Taking part in the planning will not only build anticipation, but grumbling is less likely to happen when everyone has a say in making memories. Who said planning a vacation couldn’t be fun?
Tip #4 – Double Up – Bring two of everything you plan to take - Two toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, phone chargers, swim diapers, sunglasses, whatever…two of everything, the works. Better safe than sorry.
Tip #5 – Get What You Came For – Above all if you are going on vacation to have fun, relax, get adventure, etc. do it! Seriously, if you let the stress of a vacation get you down, you may come back needing a vacation from your vacation. The majority of us need a break from the rat race. The last thing you need is to bring the stress of it all with you leaving you stressed out, upset, and worse off than if you never went. Your vacation is calling; take a much needed break and make memories that will last a lifetime!
