If there are tumbleweeds blowing through your bank account and jet-setting simply isn’t in the budget, a staycation is an incredible alternative! Oftentimes, there is so much to see in our own backyards, but we miss it because we aren’t wearing our tourist-goggles.
This type of vacation is great for people trying to save a little mula, or workers who are short on time off, or anyone who needs to stay close to home for one reason or another. This type of vacation may be a dud for anyone who’s exhausted the list of things to do nearby, or wanderlusters who feel they’d die a little inside if they can’t escape to somewhere new and different.
But, you can always add a little travel inspiration to your everyday life. For instance, transform your caffeine routine into a daily adventure of discovering coffee and culture from around the world! With a coffee world tour subscription from Atlas Coffee Club, you can travel to Papua New Guinea, Peru, Burundi, or Brazil, all from the comfort of your kitchen. No pricey plane tickets necessary!
No long flights, exhausting car rides, or cramped train cars
Discovering hidden gems that quickly become new local favorites
Seeing things from a different point-of-view, and appreciating them for the first time (or finally checking things out that you’ve always wanted to see, but figured you could go anytime… yet never do)
