Here we are once again in another article still in line with our “Twas A Month Before Christmas” series because last time I checked, it’s still November! The last time we were here for a travel-related article we have talked about the nicest hotels to spend your stay-cation in. That’s probably my number one no-stress travel tip: DON’T TRAVEL.
But, if traveling really is required, then here are a couple of tips to keep in mind in order to make your trip hassle-free and stress-free, because any bro would want a sane holiday celebration, right?
First Tip: Don’t overdo it.
It’s Christmas and you’re on vacation! Finally, after a year of waiting and saving, the trip that you’ve been preparing for all year is here! So let’s do this, let’s do that, ride this, ride that, let’s do everything! No. Breathe first for. Don’t overdo your vacation. Don’t pack in too much activities on each day. Not only will this make you super exhausted, it will also make you spend a LOT.
Second Tip: Do everything earlier.
From booking your flight earlier, to booking your dinner earlier. Holiday vacation spots will be crowded and you know what that means, right? Really long lines. Save yourself the stress by booking a dinner reservation at, let’s say, 5:00pm. That way, even if you do have to wait for your dinner at least: 1. Chances are you’re already seated, and 2. You’re not that hungry yet.
Third Tip: Reserve some extra days before and after the trip.
Filing for a leave? Then don’t make it exactly a day before and just only a day after the trip. Cut yourself some slack and get extra free days before and after your trip. That way, if you get sick or something unforeseen delays your flight you can just chill! Plus, nothing’s better than spending a full day of just sleeping after a long and exhausting trip.
