If you can, nothing is stopping you from enjoying a staycation away from home

staycation

Let’s start with the definition of a staycation. A staycation is a holiday spent in one’s own country rather than abroad or by visiting local attractions and going back home at the end of the day. The term staycation has become even more popular in 2020 owing to COVID-19 and the travel restrictions that came with it.

As we continue to remain cautious about travel, staycations are an amazing option if you do not want to travel. If you’re lucky enough to work from home, then they are also a change of scenery for a work-from-home week.
