Due to the pandemic, many of us cannot travel abroad during the holidays, which can be quite upsetting for holiday goers like me. I have come up with a strategy to have a great getaway in England, it may not be the Maldives, but it will do.
Choose your company wisely:
Choosing who you go with for any vacation is super important, so going away in England is not any different. Choosing the right company of people to go to will make the getaway 100 times better than choosing the wrong lot of people
Make sure when choosing people to go with that they are comfortable and excited at the idea of having a small getaway. Doing this can ensure that no arguments will occur and that everyone is happy and satisfied, so the trip is filled with positive vibes and energy.
Also, choosing the right company is the most important part because, most of the time, what makes a good getaway is not always the location but who you go with.
This is an opportunity to create fun and memorable memories with the one you love.
Choose the location wisely:
Always research where you plan on going because even though you may not be in a foreign country, you can still get lost, and nobody wants that.
After deciding who you are going with, a plan which part of England you want to go to because, trust me, it is not all the same. If you are planning to go with girls or boys on city getaways, these seem to be the best for young people who want to have a good time. However, nowadays many young people are more interested in the countryside and appreciating the environment so choose what best fits your preferences.
When choosing a certain location, be aware of the environment you will be entering, as some areas may be racist, tricky, or not hospitable, etc.
If you are going with family, make sure to consider all their needs. For example, if you are planning on taking an elderly individual like a grandparent, make sure the location is accessible and not difficult, and make sure it is a place where they can also engage in fun activities.
Choose activities wisely:
As mentioned above, ensure that activities and plans made are accessible to everyone coming so no one feels uncomfortable or not included.
Many different activities and plans can be pursued in England, depending on your getaway style. Remember that some activities can be incredibly expensive, so watch your bank account.
You can do cost-free activities, such as enjoying the countryside and playing games and taking walks, etc. But if that does not sound like your cup of tea, there are many other free types of activities that can be done in the countryside and cities, such as walking, biking, visiting historical locations, appreciating the view, etc.
Some great activities to engage in when on a relaxing getaway include spa treatments, fishing, etc.
Choose where to stay:
Depending on your chosen location, choosing the right place to stay is crucial. There are a variety of different ways to stay overnight in a getaway, stay with friends/family, hotel, bed and breakfast, caravan, residential parks, etc.
With caravans, you can either hire or purchase your own to take on multiple different trips, so you don’t have to stay in one set location. In residential parks, most people often engage in buying a park home so that they are able to come back and forth whenever they want to get away.
Hotels, beds, breakfasts, etc. can be found nearly everywhere in England, so there is no need to worry about that. However, it is also good to pre-book a Stasher beforehand, so you don’t have to worry whether there will be space or not, etc.
Choose a place to stay near the location where you want to stay or visit.
The most important step is having fun because that truly makes a memorable holiday. Be yourself and let yourself relax especially after this crazy year we all deserve an opportunity like this so have fun and treat yourself and those around you.
I hope these five essential steps were useful and that you can plan a fun getaway in England.
