You’ve heard of the Staycation, but that’s a vacation where you stay home or near home and just have a little leisure time. But I recently rented a hotel room a block away from my residence, and I can fully attest to the wisdom of doing a “local-cation.”
Recently, amid a series of unfortunate events and various stresses and strains of a personal nature, things were getting me a bit “insane in the membrane.”
So during one sleepless night, the thought occurred to me that I should just get out. Board the dog, get a room, take my laptop, and walk a block.
One advantage to living in an urban jungle as I do is that there are a multitude of hotel chains in the vicinity all competing with one other, which in turn works to my advantage. It allowed me to get a fairly decent rate on a room for a night.
And a good night’s sleep.
It is a wonder what a simple change of scenery can do.
