20 Reasons Why I Love Staycations

Posted by: on Aug 4, 2013 | No Comments

In times of climbing fuel prices traveling becomes increasingly more expensive. High travel costs are one of the reasons why some people choose to staycations, rather than vacation. Here are 20 reasons why I love staycations.

  1. Our Golden Retriever RustyI can’t get homesick. Believe me, this is a biggie for me.
  2. I don’t have to travel. The minute I open my eyes on my first vacation day, I’m already where I belong.
  3. My pets won’t miss me.
  4. I won’t miss my pets. Plus, I’ll save a ton of money, because boarding or a pet sitter for six fury friends can get more expensive than you might think.
  5. I don’t get travel-sick. During my last vacation several years ago, I lost almost 7 pounds in two weeks. And no, I wasn’t somewhere in a jungle camp surviving on ants.
  6. I can keep my bed
  7. And my pillow
  8. And sleep on the side I’m used to.
  9. I don’t hear strange noises.
  10. And if I do, I know that the squirrels are playing hide and seek again in our attic.
  11. I don’t have to worry about being late for breakfast, or lunch, or dinner.
  12. I save money
  13. I save time
  14. Did I already mention saving money?
  15. I can discover new places in my area.
  16. I don’t have to cohere to a strict time schedule, hence I’m not stressed.
  17. I don’t lose baggage.
  18. More important: I don’t have to pack it either.
  19. I can set my own pace.
  20. My home is my castle.
