Vacations can be one of the most relaxing and stressful times of a person’s life. There are so many things that could potentially go wrong it’s quite overwhelming. Here are some things to remember before you go on a family vacation:
- Packing — It’s pretty much guaranteed that you’re going to forget something when you pack for a trip. If you’re lucky, you’ll only forget one thing and it’ll be before you leave for the trip. Sure, you’ll get to your destination and realize you forgot your favorite book, hygiene supplies, or laptop, but it’s much better than forgetting those items the second time around when you’re packing to go home.
- You’re Going to Be Exhausted — Despite popular belief that vacations are actually relaxing, you’re going to be so tired throughout the entire trip and actually won’t be able to wait to get home after only a few hours. Even if you try to relax during the vacation, relaxing itself is actually exhausting. There is no better sleep than getting in your own bed after a week-long vacation trip.
- You’ll Never Have Time to Do Everything You Wanted — Don’t bother with that itinerary, it’s not going to matter. No matter how much you plan ahead and try to time out everything, you’re not going to get to everything on your vacation’s to-do list. It’s just too hard. There is too much to do. You’re better off just skipping to the two or three things you and your family want to do most. (Because clearly you will all agree on that).
- You’ll Be Surrounded by Other Vacationers — Being a vacationer, there is only one thing worse than you: other vacationers. You and a hundred of the same people will be in line at all the same touristy stops on the map in every vacation spot in the world. Your best bet is to attempt to infiltrate the locals and find all the “cool” and “hip” places to “hang” with your family…
- Your Kids Will Lose Their Minds — Those sweet children that you once thought were so peaceful will turn into monsters on just about any vacation. It’s inevitable. They will see the beach or a waterslide and just go bonkers. Stay out of their way if you want to make it through the week alive.
