If you’re getting ready to go on vacation, congratulations! It’s about time you had some time to yourself, for fun, relaxation, and adventure.

Vacations are a great way to see the world, celebrate life, and detox from the stress of work. If you’re in the planning stages of your vacation, you should know that there’s an art to planning an enjoyable, stress-free vacation. Sit back and let us explain it all for you. If you want to have a beautiful, relaxing trip, try to follow these simple steps in order. Step one –think about what you want.What you really want. Do you want a bit of the unexpected? Do you want a sense of uncharted adventure? Do you want pampering? Do you want history? Entertainment? Whatever you’re longing for most should be how you decide where to go. If you’re longing for simple Americana, you can explore Henry County, GA, and if you’re looking for a bit of a thrill, you can try backpacking or spelunking in Iceland. Step two, plan – Check reviews and prices. Pick a hotel, VRBO, or hostel. Purchase your flight or calculate driving time. Look at local attractions, and nearby cities. Make a list of local restaurants like the Rustic Inn so you know ahead of time where it might be nice to eat out. Once you have a good sense of where you’re going, and you’re booked on places to stay, you can move on to stage three, which is packing and departure. If you’re flying, feel free to leave early to avoid stress. You can read at the airport, and that way you’re prepared in case anything goes wrong. Even if you’re driving, leaving at a set time will help get your trip off on the right foot. You’ll arrive when you planned–and it’s always idea to leave a buffer in case you’re delayed on the road.Step four is to enjoy yourself while you’re there. Remember that you’ve left stress behind. Don’t check work emails. Don’t take calls from whining relatives. Separate yourself totally from the life you’re trying to take a vacation from. Also, have realistic expectations about your vacation. Some things will go wrong. Not every plan will work out. Walk into your vacation with an open mind and a loose grasp on things going smoothly. Since you researched and planned ahead of time, you’ll still have a great trip, but one or two times you’ll likely have to be spontaneous. Don’t be afraid to make a gut decision and try something new. After all, you’re on vacation to feel free.
