Tips / Travel

The idea of a staycation is highly underrated: Imagine a few days away from the office to spend quality time in the town where you reside and get to know your area in a way you may never have before. Not everyone has the money saved to take off to exotic locations, so a staycation can be an enjoyable alternative. Read on for suggestions for how to make the most of your next holiday at home.


Make a (tentative) plan. This may include doing some reconnaissance with peers: What is there to see and do that you have not already seen and done? How much will it cost? How much time do you have to devote to this temporary life of leisure? Laying out some sort of plan will ensure you absorb every minute of your staycation.


Live like a tourist. Most travelers aspire to live like locals, but you already have this nailed down. Instead, try to live like you are on a real vacation. If resources allow, stay in a hotel or hostel, meet other travelers, seek out free, guided tours and see all that a tourist would see. There is no better way to appreciate where you live than to learn as much as you can about it.


Let yourself relax. Packing your days full of activities will only leave you feeling exhausted. Before returning to work, save some time to veg out, clean out your closet or catch up with friends. Your time off is your time off, and you are free to spend it how you please.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
