What Happens When Your Dream Vacation Ends? How to Ease Back into Reality

In early October 2021, when the post-pandemic world was beginning to open up for travel, we had just discovered that Ernie only had a month's vacation before starting a new job; we decided to go on a 12-day adventure in Costa Rica! It was last minute, and I had no idea how we were going to pull it off - but I knew my friend and travel agent Judi could make it happen and, true to form, she took care of all the details - from booking flights to finding the hotels and excursions that she knew we would love - she arranged all our transportation and even the Covid tests that we would need to get back into the states - she had every detail covered so that when we got there - all we had to do was enjoy our dream of 12 days of relaxation and adventure in a tropical paradise. Ahhhh. . . But then - on day 12, something happened. The moment we walked off the plane, loaded our luggage in the car, and drove home, that peaceful “Ahhhh” feeling I had just hours before suddenly turned to “UGH”—the shock of coming back to “ life.” Since many of you are getting ready to go on your vacation getaway, I thought it would be helpful for Judi and Cathi, my other travel agent friend and frequent podcast guest, to give us some tips for making that return to real life a little less…shocking. So, what will YOU do after your next fabulous vacation getaway? I'm making a list, so if you have any more suggestions - what works for you or something you’d like to try - email me at paige@thebeachspeaks.com, and I'll add it.
