How to Plan for a Short Break in Less Than 30 Minutes

Well hello to you my reader chums! We all know that planning for a holiday can be incredibly time-consuming and even stressful. This is because we try to make the most of our holidays, but the reality is that we can’t see and do everything, even if we stick to a really strict schedule. To make things worse, a schedule will only make us feel like we’re always in a hurry and we can never really enjoy the things we see and do.

How to Plan for a Short Break in Less Than 30 Minutes

Every now and then, it’s best to consider a different type of holiday such as a small break that we can use to appreciate one or two things or even use to visit a friend or family member. It’s a great choice because it’s a holiday that can last just a single weekend and it only takes 30 minutes to plan for.

1. Pick a reason to go on holiday

As shown in this article at Best Life Online, there are plenty of reasons to go on holiday–so just pick one! Whether it’s to relieve stress, to go visit a friend or family member, or just to indulge in some guilt-free relaxation, it’s all up to you!

2. Pick a destination

A destination doesn’t need to strictly be a city or a country. Instead, it could be your friend’s house, the location of an event you want to attend and so on. Pick a destination based on what’s there, not just because of the country!

3. Google a travel guide

A travel guide is a great way to discover places to visit when you’re visiting a specific country. My Vietnam guide is a great idea for people visiting Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and there are countless other guides out there for foodies, art lovers, and even sporting fanatics. Of course, if your destination is a friend or family member’s home, then they’ll probably have a few ideas of their own.

4. See if anyone’s interested

Ask friends, family members, and acquaintances if they’d like to tag along. If you’d prefer to travel alone then that’s fine too. If you plan to visit a friend or family member, then make sure you let them know in advance so you know they’ll be available.

5. Pick your form of transportation (or make it your holiday)

Sometimes, you don’t really need a destination to make it a holiday. For example, the cruises available at are perfect for a holiday but they don’t necessarily have to lead anywhere. The same can apply for train journeys; you could take a train to another country and have that be the majority of your holiday.

6. Book your tickets

Lastly, book your tickets. You’ve got your reason, you’ve got your destination and you’ve got all the information you need. All that’s left is to book your tickets and start packing!

Hopefully, this article has shown you that planning a short break doesn’t need to be stressful or difficult. There are plenty of great ideas out there for a quick holiday and it’s a great excuse to get out of the house (or even your city!) to go unwind and de-stress.
