There are 10 long week­ends this 2019, what are your plans?

It’s time to get out of the house to explore the world. Whether it be a day or two, or even better if the long week­end, traveling will always be a welcome break. Here are more reasons why you should get out of your seat and ex­plore the world, one day at a time.

Try new things

Step out of your comfort zone and spice up your routine over this short break. Trying new things can cover a lot, from the ex­ploring a new place to signing up for a new adventure like bungee jumping, even enjoying new local dishes. You’d be surprise at what you can do.

Take a break

Problems creeping in? Trying to get over a heartbreak? It has been proven that traveling can help alleviate all of these. Going away (for a while) gives one time to refresh and re-evaluate without distractions. This will give the opportunity to come home with a better perspective on things.

Digital Detox

Anxious when the phone rings? A ton of messages to reply to? Long weekends are the perfect time to log off from the digital world and zone out. Take it a notch up by spending the holiday at a different location. The new environment will help you forget about your worries, even just for a little while.

Reconnect

The digital age has created faster means of communication with everyone all over the world, but nothing can compare to real-life human interaction. Put that phone down and focus on creat­ing stronger ties with the people who matter, be it grandparents, partners, family and friends.
