Are airport queues, the cost of flying and expensive accommodation making you rethink your holiday plans this year? If so, what about a ‘staycation’? In this month’s blog, we’ll take you through everything you need to make your ‘staycation’ adventure the best holiday yet!
So, swap the hassle of flying in a plane or sailing on a ferry and instead choose the freedom of the open road in your very own campervan. With Jans Lifestyle, our campervans can take you wherever you want to go! You can hire one of our luxury campervans and go on your own personalised road trip around Ireland, Scotland, England or Wales.
Here’s how to make the most of your ‘staycation’:
Plan Your Route in Advance
Whether you choose to travel around the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland or The Coniston Loop in the Lake District, make sure you have a general route mapped out to take the stress out of navigating. After plotting your route, the world is your oyster, leaving you free to stop at interesting places along the way, all the while driving to your favourite summer tunes!
Leave Work Behind
It can be tempting to take your work laptop or phone with you to stay on top of your emails. Instead, block off the time in your calendar, set up automatic email responses, and let everyone know you’ll be going off-grid and won’t be available for phone calls or meetings.
Embrace the beautiful landscapes that surround you and garner the positive mental health benefits which come from being in the great outdoors. Take a step back and allow yourself to recharge and reconnect with your friends and family, leaving the stresses of work behind you and allowing you the time to explore new things.
Try Something New
A ‘staycation’ holiday offers the ideal opportunity to take up a new hobby. Why not pack your campervan with wetsuits, paddleboards and changing robes and try your hand at paddleboarding or open water swimming? The options are limitless and what’s more, Jans Lifestyle can provide you with everything you need!
If the open water isn’t for you, you can hop aboard your campervan and explore a new town, such as Dunfanaghy in Donegal or the historic town of Dover in the South East of England.
Don’t forget the Essentials
When travelling around Ireland, well you know it can be partial to some rain and you can never be prepared enough for the changeable weather. As well as packing your bucket, spade and swimwear for a dip in the ocean, don’t forget to also pack that waterproof jacket for those rainy days.
In case of emergencies, make sure your campervan stores a spare tyre and first aid kit and ensure your kitchen is packed with all of the basics so you can wake up in the morning to a fresh cup of tea in your hand. At Jans Lifestyle, our campervans have their own fitted kitchen, electricity supply and all the accessories, so there’s no need to worry about finding a campsite to hook up.
Most importantly, make the most of the freedom that comes with your ‘staycation’ holiday. Leave the stress of travelling abroad behind and enjoy new sights from the comfort of your campervan home.
