Divorce…. sounds like a good reason for a holiday to me.
Ok, I know what you are thinking: the idea of a holiday right after splitting up with your spouse is crazy, right?
Obviously you have tons of emotions running through your body.
Maybe sitting on the couch in your PJ’s watching ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ and holding a bottle of wine sounds better?
No way. The time right after a divorce is the beginning of the next chapter of your life, so why not start it off with a celebration?
Travelling is incredibly healthy for the body, mind and soul. Exploring and seeing different cultures will help you to put things in perspective—and who knows you might just see a hottie you can wink at for fun.
Think about it, when is the last time you and your friends really got together and let loose? Maybe before the kids? A few years ago?
You are past due for the trip of your life. Let’s celebrate the new you, celebrate your strength, and celebrate your newly found independence.
Ok, are you with me? Ready to change your mental scenery? So, where should you start?
Here are 4 holidays ideas you should consider after you split up with your spouse.
Let your hair down. Do that thing you have always wanted to do, take a dare, and do something unexpected. Most of us would love to travel more, so this is your chance to pack your bags and jet set. Where have you always wanted to go, but never had the time or the freedom? Go there.
2. Get Ship-Faced
That’s right take a cruise. Sail around the Caribbean with good friends. Or, take a solo cruise to relax and get away from it all. Cruises are most often all-inclusive, so you really won’t have to worry about much more than having an incredible time. You don’t have to go somewhere extravagant—but if extravagant is more your speed, why not go to Europe and cruise the Mediterranean?
3. Pamper Yourself
Book a trip to one a beautiful and peaceful location. One of my favourites: Vilalara Thalassa Resort in Portugal. You can also check out Lefay Spa Essence, Healing Holidays in Italy. Would you rather get pampered outside the Europe? Try Shreyas Yoga Retreat in Bangalore or Chiva-Som in Thailand.
No, no, no… do not lock yourself in your home. I mean stay local: try that new restaurant, check out the new brewery in town, or explore the outdoors around you. Better yet, attend an event.
