Vacation Or Staycation?

How many times have you heard someone say, “I need a vacation to recover from my vacation”? Maybe the easiest way to recharge is to do something small. Alternately, you can’t have many new experiences staying at (or near) home. Which do you prefer?

  1. I suspect most people would choose “vacation”, and it is certainly true that travel can expand your horizons and help you learn about other cultures.

    However, in my experience, they are not very relaxing. If you are looking to unwind and de-stress from your time off, travel is not the way to go. I find just about all aspects of travel stressful: packing; waiting in airports; hours upon hours spend driving or flying, cramped into a relatively tiny area; time zone changes playing havoc with your sleep schedule; unfamiliar landmarks and possibly even languages make exploration difficult.

    I much prefer learning and expanding my horizons by reading. It costs a lot less, and you can do it from the comfort of your own couch.

    The challenge with a staycation is having enough be different to break up your normal, everyday routine. You don’t want your “time off” to be spent the same way you spend your average weekend (unless your weekends are awesome!).
