It has been said that even a short vacation can fully recharge you mentally and physically. I want to add to that. I want to say that you can achieve this by careful planning and learning to avoid simple mistakes that can ruin your weekend holiday. Believe me I have been a victim of these mistakes too, which is why I want to share them with you.
Booking a hotel far away from the attractions
You have very limited time so find a hotel that is very near where you are planning to be. If you look for a cheaper hotel that it outside of the city limits, your time on the road will eat up the time that you should spend enjoying the sights that you came to see.
Checking in your luggage
You actually do not have to bring much for a weekend vacation, so do not bother with a big suitcase that will not fit in the overhead compartment. Pack wisely and only bring the things that are absolutely necessary to fit in an overnight bag. This will allow you to be in and out of the airport real quick, giving you more time to enjoy your stay.
Do not try to see everything
Your goal for the weekend trip is to recharge, so you should be relaxing and not stressing yourself by trying to see everything there is to see. Find the attractions beforehand and decide which ones you would absolutely like to visit. The rest of the time you can spend enjoying the beauty of the city with leisurely walks.
Forgetting time differences
You should prepare for the different times zone as soon as you arrive, going by the new one. This will help you to adjust faster and deal with jet lag. Get plenty of outdoor activities so you will enjoy the sun and fresh air, which will give you energy.
If you are planning to watch one of the legs of the Bruno Mars 2015 tour during your weekend getaway, make sure you check out the date and venue early so you can already book your tickets.
