Holidays are often seen as just being a break from work for a while, but there are many more benefits to traveling than just getting some rest and relaxation. Going on a trip has a whole bunch of other positive side effects that will enrich your life and make you a happier and more well-rounded person. 

Time to Reflect

We’re sure you’ve all had those quiet moments away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life where we have time to think about ourselves a bit. We get to reflect on how we feel and where we are in life.


This kind of reflection is a great time to think about how happy you are with your career, for example. You can think more clearly about these kinds of things when you have a bit of distance away from your day to day routine. The time and space to ponder the important things in life is such a valuable part of time off.

New Experiences

Trying new things is the only way to expand your horizons. There’s no other way to grow than to try something you’ve never tried before. Although this can be scary, it’s usually the things we’re a little afraid of doing that make the biggest impression and leave us the most inspired afterwards. 


Life’s not about living in a comfortable bubble, as tempting as it may be. Go burst into other bubbles and see what it’s like. You’ll enjoy it – trust us.

We get stuck in routines a lot and this limits how much of the world we see on a day to day basis. We usually see the same people, places and do the same things over and over – travelling takes us out of the cycle. This lets us look at life from a different perspective and lets us learn a little more about other people and their daily lives.  


You learn that life is different for everybody and seeing what life is like in a new city or country is a great way of measuring what your life is like back at home. Hopefully, this should let you be grateful for the things you enjoy that others don’t and inspire you to change the things that could be better.



We often forget about fun when we grow up. Some think that fun is only for kids, and adults can’t have their own fun on holiday. We think a holiday wouldn’t be worth it if it wasn’t full of fun! If you’re wondering how to inject a little bit of fun into your holidays, come stay with us and we’ll show you how. 


Remember to always mix in fun and laughter. Those are the things that will relieve the most stress and leave you feeling like you had a worthwhile trip.
