With the recent economic turmoil that we have been experiencing, many have put their vacation plans on hold. There are varied reasons (not only financial reason) why one opt to skip that much needed break away from home and chose to stay put at home.It is a nice piece of change – which can swell your savings, or pay off the bills.
It’s not that bad, I should know, because this year, my husband and I totally scrapped any planned vacations this year. It was such a nice change, in fact, it was a treat as we were able to do a lot of things, both fun and not so fun things, as well as it got us closer to accomplishing our big project.
However, if you have no big project like us, here are a few possibilities that you can do right in your own neighborhood:
- Mellow out for a week- yes, go ahead and sleep late (I love to do this). And don’t be in a hurry for once.
- Take an overnight trip – any place that you’ve been meaning to check out is fine.
- Pursue something that you’ve been interested in, but never had the time for – that baking lesson, perhaps? Whatever your fantasy, it is probably cheaper than a trip.
- Eat out everyday at a different restaurant – this way, you save yourself from cooking but you’ll only spend a fraction of what a vacation would cost.
- Have friends over for a long weekend – while they are visiting, you can use their visit as an excuse to explore all the nice and cool things in your area.
