Choosing where to spend your annual vacation can feel very stressful if you are the one who has to make the decision. If you are going alone then you need to make sure that you have enough to do so that you don’t get bored all by yourself. If you are going with your partner or with a group of friends or relatives then you will have to consider everybody’s tastes when you pick where to go. If you need someone to help make a decision as to where to go then it might be helpful to read reviews of different places online or contact a travel agent.
Before you make a decision, you need to work out whether you want something very different, if you want to get the chance to experience a completely different culture and language, or whether you want a home away from home but without the stress. If you want to make the decision to go and immerse yourself in a new culture then you might have to travel a bit farther away or go to a smaller town or city which is a bit more off the beaten track.
Making a random decision could mean that everybody gets the chance to experience something completely new, and you don’t have to decide between two conflicting ideas. If you and your partner, or friends or family, have different ideas about where to spend your vacation, then making a random decision could be the best way to avoid bad feelings caused by choosing one person’s preference over someone else’s.
You will also need to consider how much time you have. It may not be worth traveling very far if you only have a few days to make the most of a trip away. If you have a longer period of time then it might be worth going somewhere a bit more exotic. You need to decide whether you want to go somewhere hot or cold. Are you looking for a week away sipping cocktails on a beach? Or a week’s skiing or snowboarding? Do you want a really relaxing vacation to help you unwind and de-stress, or an active week doing water sports?
There are apps and websites which allow you to type in the airport closest to you and the days on which you wish to travel, and the app or website will then tell you the cheapest flights available on those days. This could be a great way to go away for less, and you might find that you end up getting a deal to go somewhere you had never considered visiting before. This could be a fantastic opportunity to experience somewhere new and exciting.
These are all things which you should bear in mind when you make the decision about where to go on your vacation. A random decision maker could be helpful if you really can’t make the decision on your own, but you should be able to rule out lots of places based on time, cost, and the type of vacation you are looking to have.
