How many of you have waited eagerly to set out on a vacation only to be disappointed when you are there? Well, you are not alone. All of us, at some point or the other, have spent hours planning a lovely vacation, visualized how each event will fall in place with the other, only to reach the destination and find out that everything is going helter-skelter.
But. But. What if we told you that you can go for a vacation and have the time of your life? All you need to do is follow the steps that we have listed below, and you are good to go!
Plan according to your interests
Movies have always romanticized throwing darts on a world map to determine your next destination for a vacation. Unfortunately, in real life, you cannot simply walk into an airport and board the next plane for an impromptu trip.
Do beaches make your heart skip a beat? Do you want your vacation to be driven by adrenaline? Do rainforests attract you? Think about your preferences and choose the destination accordingly, and you will not be disappointed about the sights it has to offer.
Plan away till D-Day
The happiest vacations are the ones that are planned in advance. Jot down a rough itinerary, try to familiarize yourself with the place and allot time to specific activities. Learn about the customs of the place, know more about its culture. After all knowing and learning is part of travel. Moreover, research shows that the anticipation of the vacation makes people happier than the vacation itself. Create a playlist for your trip, read about all the activities on offer, and let your enthusiasm take charge for a while.
Take it easy
Do not plan activities from the moment you set foot on the location till the day you return. Give yourself a few hours to unwind before setting out to explore the place. Pick an appropriate length for your trip. Instead of trying to check every single activity off your list, take it easy. The key to a happy vacation is not to be busy every moment to maximize your experience but to do things which grab your interest. Instead of a jam-packed schedule, keep a few hours aside for wandering around and aimless exploring.
Pack the particulars
You cannot expect to spend a happy vacation if all you do is scurry around from shop to shop looking for the items you’ve forgotten to pack. Make sure you have all you need – medicines, toiletries, sunscreen, appropriate clothes for unexpected weather conditions, and so on. Go through all the necessary items and do not leave before you pack them all. At the same time, remember to pack light to avoid the discomfort of lugging big bags around.
We all know how difficult it is to stay away from our mobile phones, but you can never have a relaxing vacation if you are constantly on your phone. While on vacation, resist the urge to log in to your social media account and unplug yourself as much as you can. If you chain yourself to the internet, then you are not going to remember much of the place.
Choose your companions
You can follow the steps mentioned above religiously and still not have a happy vacation if your travel companions constantly stress you out. Avoid taking trips with people who are seldom happy with the way things are going, and hop on with the ones who make you feel happy and have similar interests. Or simply go solo and relish your own company.
Embrace these six steps and you will never regret going on a trip ever again. That’s a promise!
