Vacations are great, especially if you’ve had a whole long year – or month- of stress in your office.
But , you know what’s more exciting that a vacation ?
Last Minute Vacations.
It’s not experienced by many of us, well, at least not yet. But, sooner or later, it’s come knocking on our doors, dying to drag us out.
So in the mean time , while waiting for that ‘knock’, let’s prepare ourselves for it.
If there are any of you that is going on a last minute vacation, tonight, or tomorrow, or in a few hours, don’t be stressed out yet.
Last minute vacations can be exciting, because you don’t know what to expect, you have no planning, it’s all at impromptu.
Trust me, the only stress you’ll feel is when you pack your things.
So here it is , 4 Things To Do Before And During A Last Minute Vacation.
1) Before : Count The Days
- As I mentioned above, the hardest thing to do in these situations is packing , unless you’re the I-don’t-really-care-much type. Count how many day’s you’ll be there, and how many times you usually shower, and pack the right amount of clothes. I do suggest adding a pair of extra’s just in case.
- Now if you’re a shopaholic or going on a trip in the shortest notice, screw packing. Grab a suitcase, a stash full of cash, and shop till you drop once you’ve reached your destination. This is one of the beauties of last minute trips (especially for women) , you finally get to shop and relax.
2) Before : Go With The Flow
- Now don’t start arguing with your partner or among your family. Rushing is normal in such cases. How about laughing along with them about the rush all of you are going through, it makes great memories and not to mention it brings the family closer then ever.
3) During : Be Free
- So you’ve got to your holiday spot ? Great, this is the best time for you to roam free. Explore a little here and there, ask questions, greet, smile, smell the air, and take great pictures.
- One of the great things about last minute vacations ( if you’re not with a tour) is, you’re not tied to anything at all. It’s your utmost perfect time to just spend time and really, really, really relax. Go to a SPA if there are any. They are just simply relaxing.
4) During : Go On A Holiday
- It’s a last minute vacation. Nothing has been planned, yet. So ? Make reservations and stuff already. This is the opportunity for you to do what ever you wish with your family. But of course, if your family is on a vacation with you, choose it with them, especially with kids, go along with them, have fun, nothing is better than seeing smiles on the faces of your loved ones.
- Here is a mistake most people usually do on a last minute vacation : They consider too much. Hey, it’s a VACATION. Do whatever pleases you and your family. Don’t find time to disagree with them, anything is enjoyable, don’t consider much, what’s more worth it than having a great time with your family ? You’ve already spent that much money on it, don’t want it to go to waste now would you ?
Now you know what to do on a last minute vacation. It’s just basically a blank piece of paper, and you’re the artist. But if you’re on vacation with a tour, then make it worth, you never know what comes and what will be useful in the future.
Bottom line, have a great last minute vacation 🙂
