There are a lot of different types of holidays out there that can be had, but sometimes you just want to relax as fully as you can. Vacations are about rest and relaxation, maybe exploring and maybe rejuvenating. There are some places which are definitely a lot better for that than others, and it is worth knowing exactly where they are so that you can better plan for the type of trip you want.
It is likely and I am hopeful that travel will start to open up a little more this year. So thought I might share some of the great “hotspots” you can visit when you just really want to unwind and relax as much as possible.
Greece has long been a favourite destination for so many people, of course, and with good reason. After all, there is just so much there that you can get into, and it is definitely one of the best places to go if you are keen on unwinding and relaxing.
Whether you rent out some villas in Mykonos, stay in a bed and breakfast in Santorini or simply sit by the pool in Athens, you can be sure that you will be able to truly and fully enjoy yourself and relax into the moment every time.
I last hit this spot in high school so you can imagine I am excited to check it out again. Greece as an 18 year old vs as a “more mature” adult will be an experience
For most of us, visiting Japan will mean having some form of culture shock, however mild, but that is not to take away from just what a relaxing and wonderful place it really is, and it’s very much somewhere that you can go if you want to have a laid back time.
Now, we are of course not talking about Tokyo here, but rather out in the countryside, in places such as Ise Jingu, otherwise known as the soul of Japan. Here, you can truly allow your worries to melt away.
There are many destinations in France which you will find very relaxing indeed, whether it’s the Provence region or up in the French Alps. For the latter, you don’t necessarily have to learn to ski, but you might find it makes the whole experience a lot more fun, and it is definitely more relaxing than you might think.
Or you can just go walking in the mountains and bathing in the rivers instead. However you do it, it is one of the calmest places in the world, so it’s well worth looking out for when you want that kind of trip.
On my bucket list form sure. So many of my work colleagues have traveled the countryside in France. Plus the wine, the cheese, the bread, I cannot wait to relax and enjoy.
More or less all of Australia is very laid back indeed, and there are very few better places to go when you just want to relax and unwind. Whether you end up in one of the cities such as Melbourne or Sydney, or you wind up relaxing on the famous Eastern shoreline, you can be sure of having a truly relaxing time in any case.
It’s almost as if Australia is made for this express purpose, so once it opens up again, this should be top of your list for a relaxing time. Carly spent 6 months down under and I really hoped we would make it there. Fast forward and today it is still on my must see list.
As you can see, there are plenty of options, so pick one and set sail!
