Travel Date: Jan 20th to Jan 21st, 2017
Always find the time and the resources to do what you enjoy to do!
For myself, I crave to travel the world but an occasional weekend or even a night away is sufficient. Sometimes the time is not right or it is not within our budget to splurge on a lavish vacation but a little research and you can escape for some R&R without hurting your pocket or going the distance. “I can’t afford it at the moment”, I can’t should not be a word used ever because you can do anything you put your mind to. For instance, no matter where you live, there is always a place within driving distance where you can escape to and I did just that this past weekend. I live in the city so getting away from the hustle and bustle is a necessity for me. I try to stay at airbnb properties or B&Bs rather than at a hotel. Personally, I feel like airbnb properties and B&Bs are more per·son·a·ble, larger in size and less pricey. Also, if you are traveling out of the country, a good host can be an excellent resource for learning about local culture and customs. Keep in mind, to read other peoples reviews prior to booking and to help you choose a great home-away-from-home. This past weekend I found a cozy, tranquil cabin just a 55 minute car ride from the city with an unbeatable price! For a low $111.00CAD per night, four people would have been comfortable in the cabin which would have made it $27.75 per person!
We get busy with life that we forget to take time for ourselves and don’t realize how much getting away from our day-to-day routine benefits us. There are a number of blogs and articles regarding the positive benefits of travel which are worth reading and a short Google search away! Yes, leading up to your vacation can be stressful and the planning itself can be stressful but traveling has many positive effects on the mind and body. So the next time you say I can’t or make excuses, remember you’re stopping yourself from being introduced to new experiences, environments and other beneficial factors. If you feel like you want to escape than go for it, don’t think twice because you won’t regret it.
Mat·ter -of-fact I already have a girls weekend planned for the end of March! We booked a newly renovated Scandinavian-inspired home with aribnb. I can’t wait to post about it and share it with you. Now I have Prince Edward County and it’s wineries to look forward to -YAY-. Go out there, explore because if you never experience it than you’ll never know!
