Sometimes you just need to get away from it all. Work can often be the most stressful for some, with deadlines looming and occasionally maybe more responsibility than you can handle, but whatever the reason, a last minute trip could be on the cards. The issue you may have is knowing exactly what you want to do, so here are some of the last minute trip ideas that you could consider.
Go on a camping trip
One of the easiest things you can do is pack your car up and head away. Camping really makes this a possibility. It could be that you have a local site that you can stay at, or you may decide to travel somewhere completely different so that you can make the most of a new location. Camping and being at one with nature can actually be the biggest stress reliever, and as long as you have all the right gear you can’t go wrong. You don’t need that much stuff, a tent and sleeping bags are top of the list but then there are other items that’ll come in useful such as a table; here’s the top 5 for 2019 – https://www.outdoorgearonly.com/best-camping-table/. Once you are all set, camping could be the ultimate last minute trip when you feel like it.
Head away on a city break
If the funds allow, then a great way to get away from it all is to jump on a plane and head away on a city break. It is the ideal way to utilise a weekend, which means you don’t have to worry too much about the time off, but it can be a great way to take your mind off things. Flying out on a Friday night, and heading back on a Sunday leaves you with two full days to explore the city. Which is often just enough to give you a new perspective and ready to get back to it come Monday morning.
Book a last minute deal
Sometimes the urge to just get away is too much and a weekend in a city or camping is just not going to cut it. So why not use the lateness and spontaneity to your advantage? This is when you could get yourself a great deal by booking last minute. Heading online or going to a travel agent to see what the latest offers are could help you get to a great destination for a fraction of the price.
Turn up the airport without a care in the world
Finally, if you just don’t care but need to get away, the ultimate thrill is to pack a case and just turn up at the airport. Getting a seat on the next available plane or just heading somewhere completely off your radar. The focus of needing to book and concentrate on the new place could be the ultimate way to take your mind off things at home. I’ve always wanted to do this, and hopefully one day I will!
Let’s hope this has given you some travel inspiration for when you really need to get away.
