Five Ways To Make Your Summer Holiday The Best Yet

Even if you’re really enjoying the beautiful spring weather, you’re probably still looking forward to the summer - not only will the sun be even brighter and hotter, but most of us also get the opportunity to go away for a week or two in the middle of the year. Here are some tips on how to make your summer holiday the best time in the whole year...

Decide On The Purpose Of Your Holiday

Before you leave, it’s important to decide exactly what purpose you want your summer holiday to have. After all, everyone wants different things from their break, whether that’s lounging by a pool for two weeks or backpacking through Europe for a month, and it’s crucial that you make sure that you’re on the same page as everyone you’re going away with. If one of you wants to go Greek island hopping while another wants to spend days at the Acropolis and looking at other ancient monuments, then your Greek holiday might end in tears. Make sure you talk about what you want to do before you leave.

Budget Carefully

As great as your holiday might be, if it leaves you broke or in debt then you might end up regretting it further down the line. Make sure that you budget carefully for it - save a certain amount of money every month so that you don’t run up huge credit card debts, and make sure that you give yourself a budget as to how much you can spend every day. Being in Paris might be a culinary feast, but that doesn’t mean that you should go to Michelin starred restaurants every night if your usual budget is more McDonald’s.

Don’t Pack Too Much

Especially if you’re going backpacking or if you’re moving around a lot within your trip, it’s important to remember not to pack too much. If you usually get through seven t-shirts a week when you’re at home, you probably won’t need to take twenty on holiday with you - and remember that it’s possible to wash clothes while you’re away, or buy a new pack of underwear if by some horrible disaster you lose every single pair that you brought with you. Weighing yourself down with possessions you don’t need is a great way to get frustrated with yourself.

Don’t Plan Every Moment

Planning out every moment of your trip is a surefire way to get over-tired and burned out. Make sure that you cut yourself some slack - a holiday is supposed to be your time to relax and regimenting your time like an army sergeant will make you frustrated if you don’t quite manage to get everything done. Give yourself time to sit in cafes and watch the world go by - you won’t regret it at all.

Keep Communicating

Finally, make sure that you keep communicating with whoever you’re on holiday with, whether that’s your partner or your family or your friends. If someone’s unhappy with a planned excursion, it’s okay to spend a little time apart - it’s everyone’s holiday so no one should be guilt tripped into doing something that they don’t want to do. Listen to everyone’s opinions and keep it free and easy, and you’ll have the holiday of a lifetime.

Stay Gorgeous
