Save Money by Holidaying Locally

Save Money by Holidaying Locally

If you’re anything like me then as soon as you returned from your first travel experience you immediately began planning and saving for your next trip. However, if you’re also like me, you find yourself feeling the need to escape earlier than your budget will allow. If this resonates with you, I have a few tips to holidaying locally which have helped me keep my sanity in between my big adventures.




Beach Bound

There’s one thing I loved about the Mediterranean and that was the beaches. There were days where I would spend the entire day on the beach without speaking to anybody just enjoying the time to myself. When I felt like I needed this experience again, I found that I could get a similar sense of relaxation from visiting a local beach. With so many to choose from, a relatively inexpensive domestic flight is all it takes to enjoy a similar atmosphere. Load up your tablet with books and music, plug in your headphones and laze the days away on the sand.

Coming Back a Changed Person

The last time that I went traveling I returned home with a suitcase full of new and very different clothes along with a shaved head. No joke. And while this change of look came from a cultural journey I was lucky enough to be taken on, coming back a new person doesn’t require extensive travel. When vacationing locally, spend your budget on getting a haircut and color, completely revamp your closet and, of course, a mani and pedi. Utilizing discounts at Chicago nail salons is a great way to keep your costs down while you continue to save for your next big international adventure whilst still getting a total makeover feel.

Go It Alone

There have been a few times where I’ve taken an overseas vacation with a group of friends, but if I can be honest, I prefer to travel alone. There is a lot more which you can learn about yourself when you are alone with just your thoughts. Instead of a quick weekend away with friends, take a few extra days for some solitary camping. Find yourself a nice secluded camping spot, take a few good books and some music and enjoy the time to yourself. If you’ve been feeling stressed about a number of things in the lead-up, make a list and sort them out while you’re away.

Don’t let a restricted budget get in the way of keeping you sane in between big international adventures. Remember to keep it cost effective, look for discounts, and above all, enjoy yourself.
