Why we should get away from it all once in a while

Why we should get away from it all once in a while

Sometimes you just need to get away for a while. You are busy, work hard and don’t think about yourself enough. That’s why you need to get out once in a while and that can be at home or abroad.

Where do you prefer to go?

Taking a break during the vacations

Normally we have two weeks of May vacation. We often go climbing in the south of France. Last year was an exception, when we were married for ten years and went to Paris for a week. Now we did have a week’s vacation at the end of April, but decided not to go away.

For the husband it was quite a long time, after all it had been October that we were away for a week. And really, we just need to get away from it all once in a while.

A weekend break

Now we did have a weekend away in February. We then decided to take a break and went to Hamburg. But so long without a vacation breaks down at some point. The boys and I of course just had our vacations and then we were home. This is also vacation, but it still feels different than when you’re away.

That’s so for us then, I know there are plenty of people who love to stay at home.

Taking a break

Now the plan was to go to Switzerland. However, the day before departure it turned out to be very bad weather here. I’m always very much into planning, except for my vacations, then I can switch like that. And so the night before we left we decided it would be the South of France after all.

Here we managed to find a great campsite in Orgon, near a great climbing area.

Vacations in the south of France

Climbing was number one this week. It was ideal, because from the campsite you could walk straight to the climbing rocks. We also made a beautiful walk in the area and went to Arles for a day. At the campsite there was a swimming pool and next to it was a large lake, where you could also swim. The weather was beautiful, sometimes even too hot to climb, but then we could cool off in the water and for the boys the pool was really a highlight too.

Because we were early in the year, it was quiet at the campsite. After that week, we were recharged and ready to get back to work and school. In that respect, it is good to get away from it all once in a while.

A change of scenery makes you think about other things and work on other things. It gives you peace of mind and provides relaxation.

A look at your insurances

A week away like this is wonderful, of course, but it also requires some preparation. When we bought a new car just before our vacation, we had to take a conscious look at our insurance and found that we had actually insured our old car far too expensively. That’s when I found out that it’s good to just check your insurance from time to time.

For example, we have a continuous cancellation insurance. Not bad if, like us, you like to go away a lot. But what about the other insurances? We are aware that climbing is a risky sport and however careful we are and keep all precautions in mind we have arranged life insurance.

Have you got this all sorted out? Do you still need to take out life insurance, for example? Or do you already have it?

Before going on vacation or just getting away for a few days, there’s nothing wrong with having a good look at this.

Do you really need a week away from home or would you rather stay at home??
