You have finally got the weekend off, after hours and hours of work piled up over the days. Spending it at home, munching on potato chips and watching re-runs all day is definitely not the way to go. The weekend spells out fun and adventure, not boredom and hiding out in the sanctity of your home. Planning a little trip over the weekend is a great way to take up some sun and go about having energetic fun. You need not spend your months of savings in one shot over your little vacation. There are cheap ways to go about having a jolly good time too.
Sail away on a cruise
Taking a cruise out into the sea for a couple of days is one way to spend your weekend trip. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, cruises offer complete relaxation and comfort. Who said sailing had to be expensive and burn a hole in your pocket? Small cruise trips are ideally priced and with all the benefits. If you want to go even cheaper, you can always grab a few of your mates together, get yourselves a little boat and plan the trip yourselves. This not only saves up on money, but is extremely flexible and gives you the option to do things at your own leisure.
Anyone for camping?
Camping is another great idea for the cheap weekend getaway. Ditch the RV pitch and go all out on the wilderness with some tents and a bonfire. Numbers should be adequate, too many blocks and you can cramp the plan. Too little and it’s just not that much fun. Unless, of course if you are planning the trip with a certain little lady. There are sites specified for camping, these sites are patrolled and a much safer option than doing a bit of discovery into unknown territory. Get the bonfire and barbeque going over some chilled pale and don’t forget to stock up on ghost stories.
Row your kayak down the river
Kayaking is a super energetic and amusing way to spend the weekend mini vacation. With kayaking you can either wade your way through the water, or even catch up on a relaxing fishing experience. Kayaking gives you a sense of calm and relaxation; it’s the perfect thing to take your mind away from the hectic week ahead of you and just allows you to revel in the serene beauty around you. If you are an amateur at the sport, it’s best you resort to some professional classes that take you out on a kayak, safely and with the key element of fun.
Depending on what you want out of your weekend, you can go for either which option. Whether you want some dry fun on land, or wet relaxation in the water; a weekend getaway will render you fresh and ready for the dreaded week to come. Take some time out and research the options that give you maximum fun and all at a minimum price. Although weekend plans come together last minute, if you decide on something like a boat trip or kayak expedition it is best to book in advance to avoid disappointments from unavailability.
