I think everyone wants to travel, in one way or another. Be free! Explore! That’s what life is about, after all. That’s what some of us live for. Of course, some of us don’t have the option of spending thousands of dollars to fly to international destinations, or go on big fancy cruises. Some of us are weighed down, either financially or by work, school, or family. This is about the some of us.
Living in the Pacific Northwest, I am a little bit more lucky than some of you when it comes to what I can fit in a weekend. I can travel North to the Canadian wilderness. East to the beautiful Cascade Mountains. South to Oregon’s natural beauty and metropolitan Portland, or West to Olympic National Park and the Pacific Ocean.
Me telling you where I can go doesn’t really help you though. If you have any questions on where to travel to for a weekend, short or long, head to my Contact page and send me a quick message, and I’ll be sure to get back to you. It’s hard to find where to travel, so anything I can do to help, let me know.
Taking advantage of the weekends requires more than just knowing where you want to go. It requires making sure you are able to leave what you have at home, work and school! It’s a weekend, so you should be good in getting away. However, if you are planning on taking a day off from what you do during the week, you need to plan ahead. Because that extra day can sometimes be the difference between going on a small ski trip and making it to the best beaches.
Just let your employer, administrator or whoever else needs to know that you are going to be gone. Simple! Everyone deserves a travel weekend. Or two. Let yourself enjoy it!
