Relaxing by the pool

Chillaxing by the pool during last years trip to Nessebar in Bulgaria.


Yeah, so this picture was last years relaxing by the pool, in Nessebar Bulgaria, it all seems kind of amazing doesn't it? What I would not do to be right there, right now. But that's not happening...


We have just canceled our last booked trip abroad for this summer. We had plans to visit Cyprus for a week and just have that relaxing trip, you know, All-inclusive by the pool where you just let the stress fade into vacation vibes. That was our plan for our first week of the summer vacation, so now what?

It takes a while, just to let it soak in that we're not going abroad this summer. I don't think I have come to terms with it quite yet, but I am getting there. We're just gonna have to put our heads together and figure out a new plan to get that vacation mode going instantly. You get the picture right? It's like it always takes me a week to get into the mode, so the first week is kind of devoted to that, but if you travel abroad that same first week, you're kind of forced into vacation mode. Do you know what I mean?


So how do you get into that feeling instantly?

My initial thought was to make an All-Inclusive at home, but to be honest, who wants to have an all you can eat buffet in the fridge and eat the same food for four days... I could totally go for the open bar though.

Jokes aside, I don't think its a bad idea to try and replicate the feeling of an All-Inclusive of maybe more correctly an apartment by the beach. Make a grand breakfast every day, as you would abroad. After breakfast, pack your bag, and hit the beach. Bring snacks, maybe even lunch, and just force yourself to relax and get into the feeling that it's okay to do absolutely nothing at all.
Does that make any sense at all?

How do you start your first days of vacation?

That's chilling out really and is just the way. With summer setting in, the pool, a drink or two and peace. What more is required.

Nancy,
Oh how I miss being able to travel this year. We didn't have any specific plans yet when everything started to close around the world, but we haven't booked anything yet. Even now we're debating about doing a road trip where we stay in an AirBnB, buy take-out and cook at home foods and just spend a bunch of time outdoors. I'm more for a mountain stream than a beach girl, but the idea of relaxing with no specific plans sounds so nice.

We are also coming to terms with having all of our trips canceled this year. I would love to relax by the pool and just have a little mental escape for a bit. But, I'm not sure if that is even going to happen this summer.

Marguerite,
We are just doing a few short road trips this summer and a weekend at the beach. It's tough with all the uncertainty. Luckily I live in a destination region so within 1-3 hours I can travel to some amazing places. Looking forward to exploring this summer.

Sue,
Really sorry you had to cancel your final trip. It sucks! I'm about to do the same. I was off for a week in Spain with my 'old' schoolfriends to celebrate our joint 50th birthdays. Although it could still go ahead, social distancing & quarantine & 1 of the group not being allowed out of Australia make it a much less attractive prospect! Like your ideas for recreating the magic at home though....;)

This looks amazing... summer at the pool, lounging, sipping on adult beverages, the perfect summer day.

Your chillaxing by the pool during last years trip to Nessebar in Bulgaria makes me tempt to book holidays now. What a cool way to have relaxation like this during summer.
