Top 5 Ways to Relieve Holiday Boredom

Even if you’ve been looking forward to your relaxing two week luxury holiday for months, you may still find yourself bored when you get there.  It sounds amazing, but two weeks can feel like a long time if your holiday consists mainly of relaxing by the beach with very little else going on.  This is especially so if your normal life is fast paced and full of work.  A break sounds like a good idea, but you may find yourself restless with nothing to do.  Here are five ways to entertain yourself and your family while getting into that holiday groove.

  1. Learn a new beach sport.  If you’re spending your holiday on the shore, why not improve your skills at beach volleyball or go surfing for the first time?  Not only will it help you tone your newly exposed swimsuit body, it’s also fun to play in groups and can help facilitate bonds and friendly rivalry between you and the people you’ve taken on holiday with you.
  2. Seek out interesting experiences you can’t get elsewhere.  For example, if you’re travelling to Europe for the first time, you might choose to visit a medieval castle like you’d never find in your own country, or perhaps visit a museum tailored to the specific area you’re visiting with artifacts found on the spot.  Find national landmarks and quirky statues, and take pictures of yourself by them to document your journey.
  3. If it rains and you’re stuck inside, take the leisure time to read a book or a magazine that you might not be able to fit into your normal life.  If you’ve been longing to read War and Peace your entire life, but you normally struggle with the idea of making time for a 1400 page epic, bring it out on a rainy day.  You might be surprised with how much you get read on an interruption-free holiday.
  4. Head out for an extended dinner session at that exclusive restaurant you’ve always wanted to visit.  Enjoy a starter, a main, and extend the night out with coffee and dessert.  If you’re heading out on the town and can’t afford to eat everywhere, have drinks in several different places, staying just long enough to absorb the atmosphere before heading to the next must-see restaurant.
  5. Start to make a photo album before you even leave.  If you’ve taken a number of fantastic snapshots, why not spend an evening setting them out in scrapbook pages?  It can be a fun way to document your trip while it’s happening, while you’re still passionate about it and have the leisure time to place the most important parts of your trip in prominent places.  If you have a laptop, it’s fun to do this on the way to different places, for example if you have a second flight to another destination or on the way home.

These tips should help you to have the most fun on your holiday and truly enjoy your escape from your busy life.
