There really is no ‘perfect’ time for mums to take a break. With work, family and personal commitments all fighting for your time and energy, the thought of planning a holiday can seem impossible.
However, for the sake of your health and wellbeing, it’s important to make time for a break every now and then. A quick getaway or mini holiday may be just what you need to recharge from your day to day chaos and to alleviate any stress you may have.
Here are 3 holiday ideas for mums who need a break:
1) Go grape-sipping at a winery
Visit a wine region for the ultimate indulgence. Think good quality wines, cheese boards, fresh air and a cosy bed and breakfast with your nearest and dearest. Leave the car at your accommodation and travel from cellar to cellar by bike or join a tour so you don’t have to worry about the two wine limit. Cellar doors usually offer great deals on cases of wine so you can take home a slice of your getaway to enjoy back at home. The top wine regions in Australia are South Australia, Margaret River near Perth, NSW Hunter region, Tasmania and Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
2) Dive into a tropical paradise
Round up your girlfriends for a truly relaxing getaway to a tropical paradise like Bali. You get the best of both worlds in Bali, balancing your stay with doing absolutely nothing at all, to exploring fun adventures at every corner. Think luxurious day spas, bike tours through rice paddy fields, cocktails by the pool and fantastic bars and restaurants in the bustling towns. Imagine having your own Villa instead of staying in a hotel with kids cramping the pool space! Save money on your getaway by looking into travel and accommodation deals to score great bargains.
3) Cruise your way to relaxation
If you’re looking for a holiday that’s jam packed with activities but requires minimal effort in planning from your end, consider booking a cruise tour. Decide on the location and then shop around online for travel package deals to get the best bang for your buck. The great thing about cruises is you’ll never be bored. In addition to visiting amazing sites, you’re also within quick access to a menu of entertainment activities and fun on the cruise itself. Think buffets, shows, pool-side activities and other entertainment options.
Everyone needs a break at some point and mums aren’t exempt from this. A quick holiday getaway can make a huge difference to how you feel afterwards.
