What’s inside —

Vacationing at home is not the same as “not going away”. It’s about giving more time to yourself, letting go of routine, having fun and yes – being pampered.

Planning doesn’t have to be chore if you tackle it in a spirit of adventure. Getting the details right can ensure you get the holiday you truly want. Anticipating how great it’s going to be will make it all the sweeter.

Your home is your castle. A beautiful environment is important. Before starting your vacation, plan your surroundings.

Last Minute Items
Vacationing at home is much more about attitude than checklists. Nevertheless, there are a few things to do that will increase your enjoyment.

Departure Day 
The big day has come. Launch your vacation with small ceremonies and memorable style.

Pamper Yourself 
Being on vacation is about extra comfort and pampering yourself. This takes time, so slow down. You’re on vacation. There’s nothing that has to be done.

What To Do On Your Vacation 

No one stays in their hotel room all the time, not even honeymooners. Plan a few activities that you would love to do – now you have time for them.

Food! Food! Food! 
You don’t have to go to France to taste amazing French cuisine. Quality beats quantity.

Vacation Wisdom
On the last day of your holiday…take some time to reflect on your life.
