Do you ever wish you were somewhere else? This very idea is what dreams are made of. After all who wouldn't choose a relaxing beach chair overlooking a crystal clear bluey green tropical waterway over a day in a busy office? I know what I would choose, hands down every time.
Even the beer giant Corona has leveraged this desire of ours with their advertising slogan - "From Somewhere you'd rather be..." which is slapped on a tropical paradise photo.
There is a something about just getting away that allows us to forget about the stress of our everyday lives, and aim for something new. A new adventure. The possibilities of new places or at least venturing somewhere else is highly attractive.
So many ways to just get away.
For long trips, vacations or holidays there is nothing better than heading overseas. A peak of excitement occurs once all flights and accommodation has been paid and booked, and then another peak when you are actually boarding the flight ready for the big plunge. Going overseas used to be only for the most adventurous however nowadays if you haven't been overseas you get the feeling that you are missing out. Literally everyone has been overseas at least once.
For shorter trips such as weekend holidays or short mid week breaks it is quite easy to jump in a car, on a bus or train and go a short distance away. Once you change your environment you can start to unwind and relax a little. Its amazing what a change of scenery can do. For some this may mean going to the coast, others it may be going inland.
