Vacation is such a wonderful word that the moment it comes to our mind it gives us sort of inner happiness just by thinking about it. Vacation is not a single word ,there are so many things related with this like relaxation, rejuvenation, new experiences, motivation etc.
Every family make a plan during vacation for a trip to their dream destination according to their budget. The main purpose of vacation is to get a break from our monotonous life, whether it is he/she who is a working professional or a housewife who is doing all the household works or a kid doing homework, everyone wants to get some fresh air from new places.
It is in everybody’s mind that vacation means a trip to beautiful places surrounded by hills ,waterfalls, seashores etc. but in current situation we need to change our mindset little bit keeping in mind the purpose fulfil by vacation.
Till now we are not sure how many days we will have to wear masks ,have to use sanitizer etc. but it does not mean that we will stop living life like earlier we do. Why cant we think of getting a break at least for a day and feel like we are in a vacation provided following all the government instructions issued due to the pandemic.
Can we go for it like these :
- Choose a Sunday or a holiday when less crowd is there on the road.
- Choose a place not far from home say 1hr/2hr journey, so that same day can be returned back.
- Fill your car full day before your plan so that time can be saved.
- Pack some home cooked food.
- If kids are there take ball, bat etc. whatever they like to play.
- Start your journey early in the morning to enjoy fresh air.
- Once you reach the location ,have some tea/coffee to break morning /travelling lethargy .
- Now go for walk, sight seeing ,play with kids etc. but always keep in mind to avoid crowd (if there) and maintain social distancing.
- After enjoying the moment with our family next we can our have lunch and taking some rest we can start our return journey.
In some circumstances, it may not be possible for taking 1hr/2hr long journey, so in that case we can also think of some other plan like visiting nearby places. I believe that if we think hardly for 5 to 15 minutes then we will get many popular locations nearby us where we have not visited yet because vacation always mean a far distant place for us. Now it is the time to visit such places with family to have a day of fun but again maintaining all the government norms.
I feel that this will definitely help us and our family to get a much needed break which we are longing for last couple of months.
Every vacation means lots of memories, so why not try to have a good memory during this pandemic too.
