There are two things you need to know about a long weekend adventure. The first is that it can be done anytime. The second is that it can be done any way.
Avoiding the Waiting or Planning
So you have a long weekend coming up; what are you going to do? Or you don’t have a long weekend on the horizon; how will you hold out?
The good news is you don’t have to worry about either. There is fun and adventure to be had no matter what. You can enjoy a long weekend adventure without a long weekend and without having to plan.
Making a Long Weekend
If you have a long weekend coming up, then you are all set. We’ve even shared some ideas you can use for your long weekend. If so, you can skip to the next section.
However, quite often you don’t have a long weekend. What do you do then? It’s easy; you make a long weekend whenever you want. Here’s how.
Assuming you don’t have 3-4 days off together and you can’t get time off, you can still have a long weekend adventure by putting life on pause.
Simply stop whatever you are doing at 5:00 pm (or whatever time your professional day should end), and start your vacation. Keep your vacation going all evening, then pause it until the next day at 5:00 pm.
Make your own tropical beach vacation, hiking adventure, or just a break from the week. Here’s how.
Making the Adventure
You don’t have to go thousands of miles around the world to enjoy a long weekend adventure. Be creative. You can have one in your living room.
You can take the furniture out, lay down a tarp, buy some sand at your local hardware store, and lay out some lawn chairs. If you really want to get crazy, buy a heat lamp. Then you can enjoy some appropriate music and ambient sounds while you enjoy your vacation.
Or you can check out some local trails around your house. Every night you can find a new one. Be sure to stay safe and have appropriate gear and lighting.
You can even just enjoy a simple break by listening to the sounds of a different country and making meals that are native to that country every night.
You can do any of these adventures over a long weekend or you can make your own “long weekend adventure” by splitting it up throughout the week. However you do it, be creative and have a blast as you find where your adventure will take you.
