A summer trip is a wonderful experience and can improve your physical as well as mental health. These are a few tips for you on how you can maintain your health and enjoy your summer vacation.
Choose your location which is easy to travel, good sites, ample civilization, and good facilities. If you are looking for a cooler place, mountains are the best place to visit. High altitude and great in oxygen.
Check for weather during your stay. If you are choosing mountains with snowfall, make sure there is no meltdown or heavy snowfall. That’s because you don’t want to spend your vacation just sitting in your hotel room.
Choose for service apartments or villas instead of a fancy hotel. There are a number of online options like Airbnb, VRBO, Booking.com, etc! Some hotels have mindblowing facilities and great discounts. So, research first.
The second advantage of getting a service apartment is that you can cook your own food and not eat junk and spoil your health routine.
Look for flight tickets months prior to your trip. You might get cheaper fares. Also, if you are travelling by your car, then get it serviced as soon as possible. Also, look for the fuel stations at your location. Traveling by public transport is good to enjoy the true traveler experience.
Always travel light and you will be able to travel as much as possible. A heavy suitcase may limit your travelling options. Don’t forget to pack your essentials, like your shoes, clothes, medicines, technology and some emergency objects like a pair of scissors, glue, safety pins, thread, needle, etc.
Carry ORS sachets in your medical kit and carry empty bottles and refill them once you pass through the security check. Staying hydrated during your trip is very necessary to keep you going.
You can also grab local juices or coconut water which are refreshing and help you to charge for your treks and avoid dehydration and fainting episodes.
7] Site seeing
Search for some locations which can be visited early in the morning. So, you can get into your shoes and experience a beautiful workout routine.
Make use of the hotel gym wherever possible. And you can maintain your workout routine even during your vacation. Site seeing and visiting local places by walking will help you cherish every single memory.
Walking can help you stay physically as well as mentally fit.
8] Go easy with technology
Clicking pictures for memories is a good thing. However, people go crazy with posting pictures on social media. Remember you are on your vacation for yourself and not other people. So, capture only memories which you would truly treasure.
9] Try local things
Try local cuisine but make sure that it doesn’t affect your diet. Ask for healthy options and some restaurants do have them.
Also, buy local fruits to kick the in-between hunger pangs.
Shopping is the weak point of most of the people. So, go easy on shopping. People usually shop during their first days of vacation. Always keep shopping last so that you will be left with money for more site seeing and meeting new people.
11] Make new friends
A human is a social animal but technology has completely ruined it. Have a good talk with the local people and make them friends.
Invite them once to your hometown and share your experience of your travel with them. It is indeed a wonderful experience to get socialized without using “social media”.
