Everyone loves to travel and spend a vacation in some country far away from home – but most of the time, we find ourselves coming back needing another vacation just to recover from the exhausting trip!
However, if your main purpose for taking a vacation is to get some well-deserved rest, then you may be disappointed. Just think of all the preparation and planning that must go into every trip.
What’s clear, is that the time spent on planning and traveling drains your personal energy. Booking flights and hotels, packing, unpacking, traveling time, etc, all deplete your mental and physical energies.
So what’s the alternative? Plan a staycation!
Staycations offer the same things vacations do: relaxation, change of scenery, new things to explore. But the advantage is that they don’t involve long travels, which will naturally cost you a lot less. Also, you’ll have the chance to bypass all the stress of planning and packing.
Often we overlook the attractions that are near to us, choosing instead to spend big amounts of money to visit foreign countries. However, if you make an effort to explore the area close to where you live, you may be pleasantly surprised. There will be cafés and restaurants you’ve never tried, historic buildings you’ve never seen before, and other places you’ve never visited.
So, to make things easier, we’ve planned a weekend away for you for $172 for you to spend as a couple exploring what Lebanon has to offer!
