Taking a long vacation may not be possible very often due to work pressures and a hectic lifestyle. But you can always make a good use of the weekend to plan a quick weekend getaway. First think about and plan the type of getaway you need.
Do you want to relax on a beach or you are looking for some adventure. You can do everything on a small weekend trip. So deciding the kind of holiday you need is important.
Take the best and the most comfortable flight as you do not have time for a long layover. You do not have enough time to hang around in the airport. The best way is to try and plan a trip which is near your home or taking a road trip.
This saves you from wasting any time in travelling. Get the car ready before you leave for your trip.If you are travelling abroad, make sure that your visa documents are complete well in advance.
Pack only a few items of clothing that can be interchanged. Go for neutral colors of jeans, trousers that can be teamed up with any t-shirt. Avoid over packing as you do not need many clothes for a weekend trip.
Leave expensive items like jewellery at home as you may loose them. Women can wear a pair of earrings that match with every dress. Include a bag of toiletries and a first aid kit. If possible, try to pack travel size soaps, shampoos, toothpaste etc. Packing too much will be annoying.
Quit a little early the day before your trip so that you can prepare for your trip. Enjoy the preparation and excitement of going on a trip. This also saves you from last minute hassles.
If you want to relax and get pampered, choose a good hotel. Book your room in advance to avoid any hassles. You can splurge on a hotel as you do not have to stay for long.
Do not discuss your business or work during your getaway. The idea is to rejuvenate and relax. This is not a business trip. Just enjoy your trip.
Take your camera along with you and capture the great moments and come back with great memories.
