Hello you lovely lot. How are you doing now we have reached the mid point...
2020 has to go down as the year of the cancelled plans. I don’t know about you but my diary has never been so empty, I think we all seemed to spend February and March cancelling everything! With weddings now going ahead, even if rather smaller than many would like, the question then falls to the Honeymoon. Will you go away? Will you risk getting on an aeroplane? Or will you save your honeymoon celebrations to later on in the year or till 2021? Many are choosing to stay at home. But are Staycations really that bad? A lot can be said for staying in the UK or the country you are from. Today I have invited Kiley Morrow onto the blog to give us all some pretty good reasons why a Staycation isn’t actually that bad.
The current pandemic has forced everyone to buckle down and stay in their homes. While many have had to cancel their plans, some have decided to go through although certain improvisations had to be made to fit the situation. One of these events are weddings where couples have a ceremony in the presence of friends and family with the assistance of apps like Skype and Zoom.
It’s certainly a unique way to do it and it doesn’t take away the special-ness of the event. After that, couples then have to find creative ways to spend their honeymoon at home. If you’re one of those newlyweds that had to make such adjustments during this time, here are some reasons why a staycation honeymoon is not the end of the world.
In the future, you will look back on this day and think how lucky you are to have survived this pandemic. You’ll develop a new appreciation of your future travels. The experience of living in a time where all air travel was restricted will be a distant memory, and with the pandemic over, you can pick any destination that you and your spouse pleases.
Everyone is struggling right now. Many people lost their jobs and some businesses had to close down. Now isn’t exactly the ideal time to go out there splurge on a honeymoon. A staycation means you get to set aside money to use for later when things go back to normal again. Or if you do decide to spend that honeymoon money now, you don’t have to flinch every time you want to order a fancy meal or drink.
When you’re on a staycation, you don’t have to worry about packing all the essentials. All that you will ever need is just within your reach. Want a relaxing bed? Find a comfortable luxury mattress online and get it delivered to your home. Is the wife craving for your specialty dish? Whip it up in your own kitchen. You never have to worry or panic about not packing that one item since everything is right in your home.
Logistics during travel can be a nightmare. From waiting long hours at the airport to making sure your cab driver is taking you to the right hotel. Everything is a gamble and you can never fully relax until you arrive at the final destination. When you’re on a staycation, you don’t need to worry about any of that. Everything is under your control which means you’re not always filled with anxiety.
With honeymoons, you’re usually limited to spending a few days in a certain location. But with a staycation, you can enjoy your honeymoon for as long as you want. You get to decide how you want to spend your time with your spouse without worry that there might not be enough time to do everything on your itinerary. Take this time to slow down and do stuff you love together as newlyweds.
We mentioned earlier how travel logistics can leave you feeling very anxious. However, this shouldn’t put you off from travel in the future. You can still enjoy your vacation with less worry by planning them better. Now that you have a lot of free time, you can pay special attention to the tiniest details of your trip such as the amount of toiletries you will bring to the restaurants you will visit. It sounds a bit overboard but having all these things done ahead of time will leave you feeling less stressed on your trip since everything is already laid out.
