Dear DREAMS Readers,
Imagine if you were given just a short amount of time to pack for a weekend getaway to a destination unknown. You have accepted that your to-do list can wait, phone calls will be going straight to voicemail, and emails will just have to go unanswered for now. Would you be able to pull it off and unplug?
The idea of a spontaneous departure is a luxury we all dream of. Disconnecting from the digital world and the everyday needs of our careers and families, just for a while, can seem virtually impossible. By taking certain steps to plan for your getaway, you can focus on the thrill of the unknown…
We may enjoy the means to travel at a moment’s notice, however at the end of the day, the thought of packing can detract from the excitement of any vacation. Whether your vacation is in a hot or cold climate, a city or country escape, I highly recommend the following products to have in your arsenal so preparing for any getaway can seem effortless. After all, an investment in travel, is an investment in yourself. | Hero image: Element5 Digital on Unsplash
