Staycation o vacaciones en tu ciudad

Agosto es el mes de vacaciones por excelencia. Si por el motivo que sea no puedes irte a tu destino soñado y te toca quedarte en tu ciudad ¡ánimo! Hay muchas formas de divertirse y disfrutar unas vacaciones fantásticas. Lo mejor, la libertad de horarios.

Descubre tu ciudad.
Si lo piensas, te darás cuenta de que hace mucho que no visitas sus museos y lugares emblemáticos. Actúa como un turista y organiza una ruta por tus lugares preferidos. Vive cada día como el primero de tus vacaciones. Te vas a enamorar.

Haz lo de siempre, pero distinto.
Durante 11 meses al año corres de un lado a otro, no te paras a disfrutar el café de la mañana ni charlas con nadie. Todo lo haces con prisas. ¿Qué te parece si haces lo mismo desde otra perspectiva? Desayuna en tu lugar habitual, pero saborea cada momento. Pasea por las calles y fíjate en los rincones que no habías apreciado antes.

El cine en verano es una buena opción.
Cuando era adolescente descubrí las tardes de verano en los cines. Estaba de vacaciones en Madrid y lo pasé de maravilla. Esta ola de calor hace que el cine y su aire acondicionado sean un buena opción. Investiga qué cines y centros tienen ofertas. Seguro que puedes ver alguna de tus películas favoritas y pasarlo genial.

Acuéstate y levántate a la hora que quieras.
¿Te apetece tomar algo en una terraza hasta las dos de la mañana? Es martes, pero puedes hacerlo. ¿Por qué no? Si organizas tus días, sin estresarte, podrás hacer las tareas que habías dejado para las vacaciones y pasarlo bien igualmente.

Coge un tren de cercanías y no mires el destino.
Sí, no es lo mismo que ir al Caribe, pero es muy divertido. Pasa el día en otra ciudad o pueblo de los alrededores. Es una pequeña aventura que sienta muy bien. Lo he hecho muchas veces y es genial.

Espero que este post te haya dado ideas para tus vacaciones, que ojalá sean estupendas.

Staycation


If you are on holiday but can't travel, cheer up! You can still have great fun in your city. The best part of it, the complete freedom to come and go. Take full advantage of it.

Discover your city.
Just think for a while. When was the last time you attended a museum or visited a landmark in your city? That was probably a long time ago. So behave as a tourist and plan a route. Pretend every day is the first one of your vacation. You will love it!

Do the same in a different way.
11 months a year you hurry to the office, home... You can't taste your morning coffee or chat with anyone. What about doing the same but taking your time? Have your coffee slowly and calmy. Stroll along the streets and note the beauty you haven't been able to previously.

To go to the movies is a good idea.
When I was a teenager I discovered the magic of going to the movies in summer. The hotwave we are suffering makes the cinema a very good choice. Check summer offers. I'm certain you can watch some of your favorite films and have a great time. 

No schedules, great fun.
Do you feel like having a drink in a terrace at 2 am? Why not? It's Tuesday, but you can. If you plan your days in advance, without stressing yourself, you will be able to do your tasks and enjoy at the same time. 

Take a commuter train to an unknown destination.
I know, it's not the same as going to the Caribbean, yet very thrilling. Spend the day in another town or village. This little adventure will be great fun. I have done this a lot of times and made great memories.

I hope you like this post and wish you a fabulous time.

Jasmine

  23. Dear Jasmine,
    your tips are very good and thank you for them. Personally I like it to say at home during holidays as I have still so many things to discover in our region (and to do so much ;))
