Do you end up wasting your weekend breaks with daily chores? Or sleeping or lazing around? It’s easy to just continue a routine or stay in bed or binge watch television series, but do you realize how much fun you’re missing out on? It’s not that you’ll have to spend a huge sum of money or travel to an exotic land for your weekend breaks. Try exploring your own city as a tourist. Trust us, it will be well worth your while.
Think that’s a crazy idea? Think again. Even if you’ve stayed in this city for years together, it’s highly likely that you haven’t really seen every place in your town or city. Being a tourist in your city is an exciting prospect. You can look at your own place with newfound appreciation and awe. So, take a break from your mundane, daily routine and be a tourist in your city during your weekend break. If you don’t want to do it alone, invite some friends or family members and get started.
1) Show people around
Make your weekend breaks count. If you have friends or family visiting, take them around your hometown and see it through their eyes. Take them to the places where tourists usually go when they visit your city and experience the things that you’ve never tried before.
2) Get a room
There’s nothing like waking up to a bed-and-breakfast in your own city. Rise to your internal clock whenever you feel like in your city yet in another bed. Feel like a tourist and get set to see sights like a tourist. You’ll have an added rush of adrenalin at the thought of spending the night away from home in the same city.
3) Read up on some history
Pick a Book you had been wanting to read for long.How much do you really know about your city? If you think you don’t know much, now is the time to educate yourself. If you know a considerable amount, try finding out more. Make the most of your weekend breaks and find a new angle of exploring your city – arts, culture, historical events – the list is endless. And an internet search will unearth hidden wonders.
4) Take a long walk
If you go around your city in your own vehicle or public transport, ditch it during your weekend breaks and take a walk. Talk to new people and find out what’s new in your area.
5) Give yourself a treat
Good food always makes your weekend breaks worthwhile. Step out of your neighborhood and explore the cuisine of your city. Create a list of coffee shops or restaurants you haven’t been to and go exploring.
6) Attend an event for a change
Go see a football match or catch an art exhibition in your city this weekend. It’s probably something that’s been on your mind for a while but you haven’t had the opportunity to attend. This is your chance.
7) Make something small bigger
Your daily walk around your neighborhood can become a stroll around the city. Instead of ordering food in or cooking, why not try that new restaurant you’ve been dying to go to? Simple changes to your daily routine can widen your scope for adventure.
