Why It Is Important to Have a Staycation

The Maldives- a beautiful south Asian tropical island with warm weather, lush beaches and beautiful oceans. A dream vacation for most. 

A dream in which, for most people will not come true. The island as beautiful as it is, is also very expensive to get to and stay. So it stays a dream. 
Many are in desperate need of a vacation. Either from work or life or even both. Many can not afford to go anywhere on vacation due to lack of financial aid. 
However I can offer you a great alternative, it is called A STAYCATION
A staycation is one where you stay in your own city. You can either stay at home, a hotel or even rent a place from Airbnb
Sure it may not be the tropical dream vacation you wish for, but it relieves the stresses of life. 
Which brings me to my post

   A trip to the Maldives can cost upward of $1000 and that is only for a flight there. Not talking about the hotel, food, shopping or anything else you wish to do.
 Meanwhile, a night at Motel 6 will only cost $43. A night at home cost $0. When you think about it, there really is no competition especially if you are down on your financial status


2. You can do more things since it is cheaper

      Since you are saving all this money, you can afford a fancy restaurant, spa, shopping spree, good hotel… Do something you never done before in your city. 
Or you can even put the money you save away for that dream vacation

3. Can still feel like a vacation

  Don’t tell anyone where you are. You can stay indoors and hide away from all the troubles that bother you. 
I know when I was homeless and stay at a motel, it felt like I was on vacation. I know weird right since I was homeless and all?? However, I was away from people I knew. Not to mention I think hotel stays always feel like a vacation. 

I got a home now but still love to go to the motel once a month just to escape from real-world problems that are stressing me out. Try it out, trust me it works. 
Not to mention I come to the hotel to take a warm shower since someone stole the plumbing to my house

4. You can rent a nice place on Airbnb

    No, this post is not sponsored by them ?? I just think this is a great website to find places to rent. Stay somewhere no one knows about. 

 Only downside is the site is more expensive then a hotel. Granted $100 a night for a full house really is not bad

I honestly found a cabin on Airbnb that I want to stay at. $100 a night but it is so cool


So there you have it. Those are just some of the many, many reasons to have a staycation. I know it has become popular due to people having less money and more bills to pay. If done right, then it could be even better (or close to it) your dream vacation.
