When everyone’s talking about their travel plans for a Christmas holiday away from the office, admitting that you’re going to stay home doesn’t seem like a great alternative. If you agreed to work over the Christmas period and have only a few days off, listening to your work colleagues discuss their holiday plans sounds like more fun. But staying home can be the ultimate relaxing holiday!
So, if you’re not jetting off to Bali, cruising a European river or even driving interstate, have a ‘staycation’ on your days off and wind down after a busy year. Staying home means you can catch up with friends and family, use your prepaid gift card to shop at the best sales of the year and become a tourist in your own city!
When the office talk turns to amazing destinations and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, enjoy the thought that you won’t have to leave the comfort of your own living room. You won’t have to pack your bags, book flights, arrange for pet care and spend hours working out the details of your holiday.
