Do you recognize yourself in these situations?

2. You’ve just signed your divorce papers or you’ve just moved out of your partner’s apartment.

3. You look like a ghost – you’ve never been under the sun in the last 2 years.

Is that you looking pasty white? You are in serious need of a vacation. What? You don’t want to? Well, here are a few excuses to go on a vacation, and I’m sure after reading them, you’ll be raring to book the next flight out of town.

Poseidon resort in 2009

“an aquatic fantasy teeming with life and beckoning adventure..”

So maybe you need a year to save up for it, but if you’re going to be splurging on a luxury vacation, Poseidon Resort in Fiji is one resort you cannot miss in this lifetime. What’s so special about this? It’s the world’s first sea floor resort! Remember when you used to watch sci-fi movies about living under the sea, elevators from the ground going down to the depths of the ocean? Well live your sci-fi fantasies my friend! This will open in 2009, and they’re already taking reservations for their underwater suites. Now if you’re not exactly excited at the prospect of living underwater, they have five-star island villas to suit you.

Because you’ve worked too hard, and you deserve a break

Admit it, you’ve been working too hard. In fact, when people ask you how’s life, all you can talk about is work. Before you sleep, you think about work. Dedication to work isn’t bad, but too much of anything is a recipe for disaster. As much as possible, it’s recommended to take a break once in a while. Too much stress at work can lead to heart related problems, ergo, it can be deadly. For people who are about to reach the point of burn out, or hate their job, a vacation can do a whole lotta good: realize the important things in life, renew your love for your work – see it in a whole new light.

Death valley’s Spring Flowers

According the NYTIMES, a lot of bloggers have been speculating about the beautiful spring flowers to come out in Death Valley this year, due to the heavy rains of the past year. Death Valley is home to 1000 kinds of plants and flowers. The net is teeming with groups organizing events, photography sessions, etc., in the area to capture the dazzling display of flowers that only Death Valley National Park can produce.

Luxury travel is just a bid away

You’ve worked hard enough to earn yourself a vacation and not just any vacation – a luxury cruise amongst the finest cruise destinations in the world. Or maybe you’d like to sip a little wine under the Tuscan sun? Well you don’t have to lose an arm and leg just to have the luxury travel experience of a lifetime. Luckily, there are luxury travel sites offering auction bidding on travel packages that’ll normally cost you several thousands of dollars.

Geocaching

If you’re more into adventure, then geocaching is for you. Geocaching is game for gps users where participants have a cache hunt – and maximize the abilities of their gps unit – while on their rv’s or other vehicles (but more users prefer rvs as these hunts go far and wide). If you have that spirit of adventure within you, and you have a gps in hand, then this is one vacation activity for you.

So many places to visit, so short a vacation. Now remember, you don’t really need an excuse to go on vacation, you know you just want one – everybody needs a break once in a while. Just make sure you’ve had your shots, you’ve made arrangements for your house, pets (if you have any), and of course your work. We don’t want you coming back to an empty house, hungry pets, and a memo at work now do we? Have a happy trip.
