The local vacation

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.”

Stressed Out PersonRecently, 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.

Hotel MotelOne 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.
