How to have an EPIC daycation! Tobago in a day.
The word 'daycation' is defined as a day trip or a one day vacation. With all the pressures of kids, careers, errands and the like, this is an easy stress-relieving remedy that can fit into a weekend or an off day from work.
Here's a great 'to do' list for a wonderful vacation experience:
1. Pack a small or medium sized bag.
You should include a change of clothing, personal items, travel documents if you plan to travel. In addition, see the Charmin in the photo above? Please don't go traipsing off anywhere without leTP.
2. Dress comfortably.
Unless you are planning to go to an ultra-formal event or business trip, comfy jeans and footwear are your best bets. It is advisable to walk with a scarf or shawl, throw it on when faced with chilly buildings/planes/ferries etc.
3. Start off the day with a delicious beverage.
Relax and sip while you plan the day ahead. Figure out how many sights you can manage with the amount of time you have! Why didn't this branch have wifi? Oh, well.
4. Withdraw a little money.
Approach the nearest ATM and withdraw the least amount of cash that you may need for public transport and food. Walk with a debit card for more expensive items.
5. Apply sunscreen.
Who wants to be reminiscing about a wonderful daycation while nursing burnt skin? Yeah, I thought so. Pile it on because you may spend hours under those rays.
6. Shop a little.
Drop into a couple shopping malls. Experience what the stores have to offer.
Look at the following video to see some of the accessories that I bought at the shopping mall:
7. Take a (legal) risk.
I decided to try an energy drink that I have never before seen:
Maybe this is your idea of a risk:
If so, go for it.
8. Have lunch, enjoy it.
You will need your energy to explore the sights and participate in any activities. An individual passed and told me that I should try the 'green bottle'.
9. Enjoy the sights.
10. Get up close and personal with at least one body of water.
I was lucky enough to experience two bodies of water:
11. Catch a movie.
We watched a movie called 'Project Almanac' - a teenage romance sci-fi like film. Epileptics and migraine sufferers beware.
12. View some aspect of local culture such as art.
Be sure to enjoy every moment of your brief fling with relaxation. The next time you hear an airplane in the sky, you will look up, smile and remember great memories.
