Carly and I get about.
Well, we like to get away. Regularly.
Recently we had a short break in Devon. A friend said to us recently 'you two get away all the time'. I hadn't really considered it before.
At first I felt like I needed to justify it. Like it was a criticism.
Some people work hard towards their one big holiday of the year - two weeks in the sun, or whatever it may be. That's fine of course.
I make no judgements.
We just tend to holiday slightly differently - a weekend here, a few days there. Even the odd one night 'holiday'. In fact, I'd say we've got 'short breaks' down to a tee...
This is due to the following reasons:
1. We like to explore. I get bored easily. Skittish. Routine stifles me.
2. Carly gets home sick.
Very quickly. It's both endearing and frustrating.
3. We both work very hard.
Full-time jobs, children, tutoring in the evenings, studying, commuting - life is damn busy.
(NOT THAT WE'RE ALONE IN ANY OF THAT OF COURSE!)
Airbnb has had a massive impact on our lives. At the drop of a hat we can jump in the car and be on an adventure, and very cheaply too.
If you haven't Airbnb'd yet, you're missing out!
Having time on our own without the children (although that will change in September when the little one arrives - yikes!) gives us some freedom.
We exploit that.
It's an opportunity.
I 'rest' better away from home. So does Carly.
Getting away clears the mind.
Short, regular trips are the way forward I think.
They work for us - for now, at least...
Anyway, all shots in this blog were from our recent Devon 'get away'...
