There are a lot of signs that you’re late for an upcoming appointment with the beach. If I were a doctor I would be immediately prescribing a plane ticket and coconut-shell cocktails for any one of these signs. Take a look at some symptoms below, and see whether you’re due a much-needed getaway.
Zoning out regularly
You spend more time daydreaming about white sandy beaches than you do being active on Zoom meetings. It’s not just at work either, as most interactions are now muted out by the sounds of the ocean. Then you have to snap back into reality and embarrassingly ask what you missed for the 5th time in a row. Even TV shows don’t distract you anymore. Whole seasons have gone past in a blur and you don’t have a clue what’s happening… speaking of which…
You completed Netflix
You’ve binge-watched enough Netflix to last a lifetime, and recently thrown caution to the wind and ended up on the shuffle setting. If you’re back on Friends again after finishing the last episode moments ago, then it’s time for some adventure don’t you think? 🗺
Looking at travel websites and flight prices becomes a full-time hobby
If you’re not a travel agent then you shouldn’t be spending half your days looking at group travel websites and Skyscanner, unless you’re days away from getting that trip booked. If your finger keeps hovering over that book now button, unable to click, then I suggest you simply do it now! There’s only 1 way you’re going to scratch that itch… DO IT… “You’ll never know unless you GO”.
“Can you lend me a hand?” Did someone say Thailand?!
If you’re regularly mishearing everyday words and sentences for things travel-related then it’s time to act quickly. Someone asks what you’re doing today, and you respond with “who said group holiday?” Then I think we need to pack that backpack and head to the airport ASAP! ✈️
When will it not be winter again?
Unlike Game of Thrones where winter was coming for an eternity, it feels like it’s been here forever! The mood skies, cold chills & miserable rain morning just won’t leave you alone… so maybe you need to be on the opposite side of the world where the sun shines 90% of the time?
Food is boring
If you feel like you’ve eaten everything there is, nothing excites your taste buds and you just don’t fancy anything? I can assure you that you have not tried everything. There are unbelievable delicacies and cuisines out there. It’s a big wide world and the only way to travel is to eat your way through it!
You’re constantly thinking… ‘I’m in a rut‘
If you know you’re in a rut then you need to do something about it… fast! It’s been a long few years for everyone, and working from home has been tough. Quarantine was hard, and now that the world is open again it’s the best time in your life to shake things up.
