What is your definition of a vacation?
There’s many definitions. None is right, none is wrong. This is because a vacation is very subjective in how it should be.
Some prefer visiting and cramping as many locations and activities into whatever time is available. Others prefer a more historical type of vacation where you visit historical sites or location of significant.
While to others, including myself, a vacation is simply a short getaway from your everyday life, and doing things you are not able to do. Some people just take a break and stay home all week. That’s a vacation to them, just hang out at home and recharge.
A couple friend of mine actually spent a whole week at one resort. Their typical day includes waking up when they wake up, have breakfast and spend the rest of the day by the pool, strolling on the beach, or just hanging out in their rooms.. or rather villa. Every other day, they would take a taxi into town, and hang out there by the local bar or cafe, and indulge in local lifestyle.
At the other extreme, another couple friend of mine went on their vacation to China if I am not mistaken, and spent their entire week chasing from one location to the other. Every morning, their usual wake up time is between 3-4AM. They enjoyed it as they get to see a lot of places of interest within their 5 day 4 nights trip.
To me, I would prefer a slow vacation. A holiday to recharge instead of “visit”.
Somewhere where life slows down.
Somewhere I can look out the window see this…
Instead of this… :S
Or even better… look out the window and see this
But these are all just me
Next up for this blog would probably be a short trip my friends and I took .. and the juicy fresh catch we had for lunch.
