Does the monotony, traffic and the concrete jungle called Bangalore leave you waiting to just take off to someplace peaceful? Are you scrolling through Instagram and looking at people traveling all over the world while you’re here finishing some pending office work? You, my friend, have what is called FOMO! The next thing you start to do is get out of bed and google all those places that you can visit. The itinerary, the hotel, transportation once you reach, so on and so forth. From considering how many days of leave you need to take to how you’re planning to reach your destination, there’s so much you need to do to put a plan in action. While you may be on a roll, something new to consider instead of a long vacation is a daycation – A short visit to somewhere not far away yet not too close by.
As the name suggests, a daycation is a day outing to a place in or around your city that can help you unwind, relax and get out of your monotonous routine.
