How to Have a Stress-Free Vacation

When you're going on vacation, you want to leave all your worries behind and focus on having a good time. Unfortunately, some situations can cause you to need a vacation from your vacation. Here are some ways you can have a stress-free trip. 

Use a Shuttle Service
One of the biggest stressors at the beginning of a vacation is finding a ride to the airport. You could do long-term parking, but that can run as much as $60 a day, depending on where you live. Save time and money by hiring an airport shuttle service Wilkes-Barre to pick your family up. The cost for the ride can be as low as $20, and you won't have to struggle with finding a parking spot and rushing to the airport to get to your flight on time. 

Another way to use a shuttle service is to rent one to take you around the area you're vacationing at. Shuttles are typically cheaper than renting a car, and you won't have to worry about getting lost when you're going to your next destination. 

Create a Schedule
When you visit a new place, there are a lot of fun new areas you want to explore and things you want to do. Write a list of what you want to do, and break everything down into days you want to do them. If you estimate that you'll stay a long time in one area, then plan for other things that day where you know they won't take a long time. For example, if you want to go theme park, you likely don't want to schedule anything else for that day, so you can ensure you have time to explore everything. However, if you want to visit an aquarium, you'll likely also have time to do an escape room later in the day. 

Cancelled: Christmas Market

We were looking forward to celebrating Advent and Christmas this year, especially for the Christmas markets. We were all very excited, because maybe, it would be a different Christmas this year despite the pandemic. But authorities cancelled the Christmas Markets in Ludwigsburg, Stuttgart and Esslingen at the last minute. Today, the Baroque Christmas Market in Ludwigsburg was supposed to open, but they decided to cancel it yesterday evening. They knew that the situation is bad, and yet they didn't do anything for weeks. And just when the preparations were almost finished and the opening ist just a day away, BAM! Abgesagt! Cancelled! I understand that because of the very high number of positive cases and the critical situation in the ICUs in the hospitals, a drastic move has to be made. But they should have foreseen this situation, as this was also the case last year, that the numbers would rise especially in the autumn / winter season. But no, they didn't seem to have learned something from last year. And that is what makes me sad...

But still, without the Christmas market, we can still make the Christmas season a memorable one. We can still celebrate in our small and intimate family circle and warm up Kinderpunsch and Gl├╝hwein. We can bake Christmas cookies with our loved ones and consume them while watching family movies in the comfort and warmth of our homes. We can create wonderful memories and sing Christmas carols. Create wonderful handmade Christmas decorations and give them out to friends. Yes, we can still all do this despite the pandemic. And the money that we are supposed to have spent on rides and shops at the Christmas market, we can save them up donate to a charity that needs it the most.

The Christmas markets may have been cancelled but the true spirit of Christmas, of family, of thanksgiving, of gifting, of hope and of love will remain.
