It's not about where you go, it's about how it makes you feel.
If you have ever been on a trip or a vacation that didn't meet your expectations, you probably have figured out that it's not about the destination. When you go away, you bring yourself along!
Last December my husband and I took a quick trip to Jamaica and it was awful! It wasn't Jamaica's fault, we've had many amazing adventures in Jamaica before. So why was this trip such a bust? It was right before the holidays and we both stressed out over work and buying gifts, plus we had winter colds so we weren't feeling great. We figured a quick getaway would be perfect to relax and unwind. Guess what - we brought our problems with us - we couldn't stop talking about the same stressful issues we had been discussing at home. Was it a lot nicer to discuss them on a beach with the sun on our faces, of course, but my point is - vacation is a mindset, not a destination. We failed at turning it all off during our vacation.
The vacations that have been the most successful for us, are the ones that we were able to table everything and let go. I propose that you could do that anywhere - even at home! Am I saying you never need to travel again, of course not! But you can achieve the same break during this travel ban that you can on vacation if you are willing to take a break from it all and give yourself a mental vacation.
So grab a bottle of wine, make your favorite meal or sit down to a comforting movie and take a mental break from it all! We can dream and plan for our next vacation during the down time!
Where are you dreaming about going when you feel safe to travel?

I love working with seniors! I thoroughly enjoy guiding clients through the planning process, from finding the right destination to organizing the logistics to hearing about the trip upon their return. I am a strong advocate for my clients when it comes to price, quality and service. Trust and building lasting relationships along with continuing education are all extremely important to my business.
